RIYL: Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem
Born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, Logic, a Maryland-bases hip hop head has done it again. No. Really. Of course, he had that breakout record Everbody in 2017, but Bobby Tarantino has been spitting BARS since 2010’s mixtape Young, Broke, and Infamous. At a mere 20 years old upon that tape’s release, it was apparent that Logic was aiming for big things. Not only does he have the label backing from Def Jam and the Visionary Music Group – he has the verses to back himself up.
Case and point, this new track “44 More.” A riff off of his previous release of “44 Bars” it’s apparent that Logic can do no wrong. Like, damn. The amount of switch ups that are contained in these three minutes alone are enough to make your head spin. Now, for those that are not familiar with Logic’s work, it behooves you to check out all of his mixtapes via DatPiff, just so you know I’m not jerking your chain.
While it is obvious that Logic is at the forefront of an ever-changing hip hop genre, he flexes with massive skill. Now, while I won’t go so far as to say that he’s the new Slim Shady – he’s not far off at this point. Again, I know that is a plateau that some might not respect. Let’s put it this way: Logic has paid his dudes. He came up through the hip hop underground. He threw down mix tapes. He put in work. He got noticed. Now, as he says here, “he’s been blowing up like C4.”
Is he at his pinnacle? I don’t think so. Instead, I think we’re gonna see another 44, and another 44 after that. Keep watching. You’re looking at a superstar.
