Logic may be in the midst of a massive world tour right now, but Amoeba Hollywood had the pleasure of sitting down the with rapper/singer on a recent visit to the store. Born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, Logic started his musical career young, releasing his first official mixtape, Young, Broke, and Infamous, in 2010 when he was only twenty. In 2011, his follow-up, Young Sinatra, won accolades from numerous fans, as well as the influential publication XXL. His music video for "All I Do" was Logic's first to chart over 1 million views on YouTube. A year later Logic released a third mixtape, Young Sinatra: Undeniable, which led to a successful European tour, an XXL cover, and the announcement that he had signed to Def Jam. 2015's The Incredible True Story debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200, for which he is currently touring both the US and Europe.
Logic has a lot to say about all of his picks, the first of which is a DVD of Community: The Complete First Season, which stars fellow musician and actor Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino). He also chooses some classic hip hop albums from the '90s, including OutKast's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, as well as more current favorites like Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, which he calls "a great album for hip hop, and for mankind." Logic also talks Quincy Jones and producing, and why The Incredible True Story hadn't been pressed on to vinyl until last week.
