LOGIC w/ DJ Rhetorik and Michael Christmas

When: Fri., Feb. 27 2015

hip-hop, 8 p.m.

Hip-hop artist Logic, a.k.a Young Sinatra, came up from Gaithersburg, Md., wielding a classic tale of hard work and self-reliance before releasing his debut album Under Pressure on Def Jam Records in 2014. From 2010 to 2013, Logic released one mix tape a year, a move that enabled the rapper to establish a huge audience online. Although he’s come a long way since those early days, Logic still writes for those who have been behind him since the beginning. “This for me was fun. I created this song just to perform live. For me, this was for the day-one fans,” Logic says on the commentary tracks for Under Pressure (released exclusively on Spotify). “This was like our celebration. We had been at it way before the fame. This is for me and for the people who know what hard work means.” Logic’s style earns him comparisons to artists like Chance the Rapper and Mac Miller, while his vocal style is reminiscent of Drake. —J.
