East Coast rapper Logic is really back for the first time. The hip-hop star has come through fresh from un-retiring from music-making with his YS Collection Vol. 1 album following years of battling label and publishing complications.
Logic Wins Clearance War
Young Sinatra officially hit the ‘go’ button on dropping the must-hear collection of anthems. While some songs might sound new-new to modern day Logic fans, diehards will notice a majority of the tunes come from past mixtape projects he couldn’t officially release to the masses.
“It’s taken us years but we finally cleared songs from over ten years ago for the fans to enjoy! Many of you for the first time. The YS Collection is compiled of songs from the Young Sinatra mixtape series. You’ve asked me for years and I’m happy to say it’s finally here! Available everywhere Friday #RattPack”
Logic Proves He’s Really Back
Last week, the hip-hop heavyweight kept his word on releasing new music in time for T.G.I.F goals with his must-hear record. Clocking in at well under two minutes, Log’s “Intro” is extra personal reminding the world he dropped out of high school with and never returned to even get his General Education Development certificate.
“I got rent, I got bills but I want a record deal
Don’t wanna give up on my dreams ’cause I know I got skills
People sayin’ I won’t make it, sometimes that’s how it feels
Dreams and ambitions of makin’ millions from record deals
Emotions, I let it spill, I’m goin’ in for the kill
Give ’em my everything still, I hope you feel me for real
Just me and all my homies, we want it now more than ever
Destined to work a nine-to-five, man, f*ck all that, whatever
I want this life forever
I wanna make it out my hood, I wanna do sh*t better
I got nothin’ to my namе, not even no GED
But I don’t wanna be somе has-been, lookin’ back at forty-three
Wonderin’ who he could be if he had the guts to take the leap
That’s why I’m here to take the beat”
The song centers on his mighty return to music-making and confirms he’s un-retired in the final bars.
“Started as a freshman, now Logic a veteran
Thinkin’ ’bout the time it took to get here
I signed a deal and made the mills, can finally afford to pay the bills
This world is cold as f*ck like I’m from the ‘Ville
Let that last line chill, everything I ever wanted, now I got it
F*ck a subject, school, I dropped it, grabbed a gat and cocked it
Me and my homies in the lab, dope sh*t, what we concocted
Yo, I been to hell and back, motherf*ck a platinum plaque
None of that, it don’t mean sh*t if your family ain’t got your back
I’m unretired, yeah, I’m back, that’s a fact, that’s that”
Logic Ends His Rap Retirement Like MJ
The same week, the rap heavyweight shocked fans by lighting up social media with the big reveal. We saved you some time on browser searches by doing a side by side comparison of Logic and iconic NBA legend Michael Jordan‘s retirement-ending announcement from 1995.
“The following statement was released today by Logic, through his attorney Paul Rothenberg Partner of Rothenberg, Mohr & Binder, LLP located in NYC, in response to questions about his future career plans: ‘I’m back.’”
Logic’s statement was practically word for word exactly what MJ put out March 18, 1995.
“The following statement was released today by Michael Jordan, through his personal attorney and business manager David B. Falk, Chairman of Falk Associates Enterprises, Inc. (‘FAME’) located in Washington, D.C., in response to questions about his future career plans: ‘I’m back.’”
Logic Spends A Quarter-Million On Pokémon Card
Rich hip-hop artists tend to have expensive hobbies. Logic is no exception as he proved in October 2020 when he reportedly spent over $200,000 on a very rare Pokémon card.
Logic has been going hard on his favorite card game. His purchase of the rare 1st edition Charizard Pokémon card was a new record for the highest bid on a Nintendos collectible, topping the $216,000 YouTube personality Logan Paul spent on a Pokémon box.
“When I was a kid I absolutely loved Pokémon but couldn’t afford the cards. I remember even trying to trade food stamps for theirs and now as an adult who has saved every penny he has made being able to enjoy something that I’ve loved since childhood now as a grown man is like buying back a piece of something I could never have, it’s not about the material it’s about the experience.” -Logic’s Instagram
