Giving you the direct perspective from Logic and his producer C-Sick, "Track Breakdown" is an HNHH series that highlights a specific cut by speaking to both the artist and producer about the song's creation.
Logic was quietly grinding in his hometown of Maryland for some time, releasing tape after tape, before he hit it big and signed a deal with Def Jam. His story is similar to that of many rappers: an absentee father, a mother with a drug addiction, and a high school drop out. However, Logic is not your average rapper. The emcee first stepped to the mixtape game with Young, Broke, And Infamous, which right off the bat had a high quality standard that Logic has maintained through out all his mixtape projects-- beats, lyrics and flow.
Logic's most anticipated mixtape thus far was definitely his last one, Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever. The Frank Sinatra theme is re-occurring in the rapper's music, and even when it comes to his fans, whom he calls Bobby Soxers. This is just one aspect that makes him unique, but his look, versatility, and wordplay are probably what make him stand out the most.Â
Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever once more displayed how Logic can hop on about just any style of beat and bring rhymes and a flow to match it. Whether it's an old school vibe, new-age beats, a club anthem-- Logic has probably done it. This is undoubtedly one of the reasons that Def Jam has picked him up as a new signee, and producer No I.D. is will be executive producing his debut album on the major label.Â
For this edition of Track Breakdown we decided to talk to the rising emcee about one of his recent releases, a random freebie he dropped with Cleveland native King Chip, titled "Two Kings." It's the first time these two have collaborated together, and over production from C-Sick, it does not miss.
Logic talks to us about his versatility, his bars, the song concept, and breaks down his favorite part of the record. His go-to producer tells to us about initially linking up with Logic, creating the beat and more.
