"Under Pressure" Album Illustration by Sam Spratt

image

 

If you couldn’t already tell, the cover for Under Pressure is a painting, done by the extremely talented Sam Spratt. Read the detailed story in Sam’s own words of how he created the artwork and brought the essence of Lenbo's basement to life below.

"I usually don’t like to give much context or explanation for anything I’m illustrating, but this is an exception. When Logic reached out to have me paint the cover art for his debut album under Def Jam (this is the first of 2 covers) he started by just telling me his story.

"He grew up in poverty in a very broken home filled with violence, abuse, drugs, his brother dealt crack to his own father, mother was stabbed, he was kicked out of school, out of the house, all by age 17, and when these systems failed him, he turned to his friend to stay in his basement — with a couple others close to him, he sat down and started to write — to make music. He showed me a few grainy low-res photos which was all he had from this basement — enough to look at and see how the room was laid out, but little else. There just wasn’t any sort of documentation of that specific moment/feeling he had there — which despite everything that had happened prior, was a positive and warm memory.

"So he explained to me this quiet scene in the basement of him reading his recently written lyrics off his phone while his two friends sat there, listened, and the sun started to go down and bleed through the window. He described some of the things that filled this basement like an old thrift store painting of a car, an ugly yellow moth-eaten sofa, perpetually twisted-up window blinds, a stolen street sign, the colors, the materials of the desk, stereo, and speakers, down to some of the stickers that were pasted over it. And then he asked me to recreate that.

"So this album cover was about a month worth of researching, sketching, and painting but not for a glitzy portrait like I assumed I’d be doing as rap album art — instead it was piecing together the mood, color, feeling, action, and setting of a very vivid, fairly unexceptional, yet important memory that a camera just never captured.

"I’ll have more to share in the near future as to how this was made in-depth, the back cover, and the other album artwork we worked on together, but I thought I’d share a bit about what went into this one. When you hear the album, it’ll make even more sense, as it has this amazing narrative throughout the whole thing that we worked hard together to sync up on the art side."

Logic’s Debut Album Title & Cover Art Revealed!

image

 

Logic has just announced the title of his album via Complex. Under Pressure is currently set to be released within the next couple months. Feel free to check out all the information given on the album thus far at mindoflogic.com/tagged/logic-debut-album.

"I always knew I wanted that feel you see in the detail, the half dark half bright and beautiful look. The entire album is about the two sides of myself. I could have done one of two main things when creating the album. Anyone who knows me knows I love all music, from the raw hip-hop to the fun shit they play at parties, but I decided to make a very "classic" hip hop album, I wanted to RAP, my fan base is huge, it stretches across the globe, but no matter how famous you get, someone out there still has no clue who you are, so for those that discover me from this album I wanted then to go, "Oh okay I get it!" They will immediately know who I am and understand the message in my music."

The album cover art, pictured above, was done by artist Sam Spratt who has done pieces for music artists such as Janelle Monae and Childish Gambino.

The cover of Under Pressure depicts Castro, Logic, and 6ix sitting in Big Lenbo’s basement. It’s a fitting scene since this album is about Logic’s life before he was who he is today.

It’s almost time! Are you ready?

New Music: Logic - Driving Ms. Daisy (feat. Childish Gambino)

 

As Logic preps for the release of his debut album, he gives the RattPack and BobbySoxers a new song. The self-produced “Driving Ms. Daisy” features Childish Gambino and will be a bonus track on the album.

"I was deathly sick and dealing with a lot of problems, not personal so much as business and getting the album ready. I decided to put it on a song, and the fact [that] I produced it made it feel more honest to me. I gave the listener every aspect of my mind on this matter," Logic told Billboard.

Listen to the song above and look out for his debut album this fall.
