This past Wednesday (October 15), Logic let 300 of his most diehard fans get an early listen of his debut album Under Pressure, due out October 21.

A big thanks goes out to those who stood in line for hours, even through the rain, and to those who stayed back after the show to get a chance to meet Logic and members of the RattPack and VMG!

Above and below are some photos from the event, taken by Ana Luiza. More can be found at VMG’s Tumblr.

Logic: A Song I Wish I Wrote

image

 

XXL spoke to 10 rappers and asked them if there was a song that they heard and wished that they had written. Peep Logic's answer below.

"Today Was A Good Day,” by Ice Cube. It’s classic song. It’s a timeless song. You listen to that shit forever. Forever, ever and ever. Whenever you are having a good day, you just throw that shit on. The beat is amazing. It samples The Isley Brothers. Cube is so dope.

HNHH: Crew Love: Visionary Music Group

image

 

Visionary, or VMG for short, is currently made up of two rappers, Logic and QuESt, singer/songwriter/producer Jon Bellion, and another producer, 6ix. Though small in number, all four minds seem to be cut from the same restless cloth, with VMG artists’ new projects rarely resembling their predecessors and always seeming to boldly push the music into new, unexplored territories.

In their responses to questions about their still-young careers, Logic, QuESt, Bellion and 6ix show some other common threads, namely a profound respect for Kanye West and J Dilla's production talents. With the work of those two creative geniuses inspiring VMG's crew to never settle for mediocrity and artistic stagnation, this young-but-talented crop of artists seem to be carving out their own lane in the rap game.

Given Name: Sir Robert Bryson Hall II

Alias: Young Sinatra

Age: 24

Occupation: Rapper

Releases: Young Sinatra, mixtape, 2011; Young Sinatra: Undeniable, mixtape, 2012; Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever, mixtape, 2013; Under Pressure (Upcoming), debut album, October 21, 2014.

Career Highlights: “There are many! But I would say linking with Visionary. Touring with Kid Cudi, aside from headlining and selling out my own tours, which is surreal. Working with No I.D. and handing in my album.”

Sound: “Honestly I’ve always been a lover of all music, all sounds. I would say my sound is ever changing, but the roots are those hip-hop drums over whatever the sample may be.”

Strengths: “I think my number one strength is to the public is my flow! However, after mastering and continuing to the aspect of my talent, I have truly focused on the storytelling in this album — really bringing you to my life at different years of my most influential of times. I focused so much on painting pictures, so that now my talent will be looked at as well-rounded, I am a student of this game, and always learning.”

We know a lot of details on your upcoming album are under wraps, but what CAN you tell us about it?

"I can tell you it sounds nothing like anything out and yet familiar sounds and patterns. I love finding inspiration from everywhere, not just music, but it’s extremely musical, from live instrumentation, guitars, live strings, vocalists, horns, the works! Yet all within the hip-hop circle."

You said one of your friends described the album as a mix between good kid, Maad city and Graduation. Were those actually two of your biggest influences while working on the project, or were their other albums you were more inspired by?

"Well let’s not say all that, I think my friend meant the storytelling aspect mixed with the GRAND instrumentation.

"This album sounds like nothing you’ve heard before, mainly because it’s not only my story, but my family’s story and Maryland’s story! So of course the public has yet to hear it! I can’t wait, I am so excited to unleash my work to the world. I know they will love it, it’s too good not to!"
