Breadnwater recently released this remix to Ballin, one of the bangers on Logic’s Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever. The beat was produced by Arthur McArthur, and its fast pace forced Breadnwater to speed it up, too. He does it with ease, though, spitting absolute fire. You have to listen to this one a couple times to catch everything Breadnwater says, and it’s definitely worth many listens. Not many rappers should try to remix a Logic song, but Breadnwater’s version of Ballin rivals Logic’s original.
Today we finally get to hear Logic’s newest mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever. It is his fourth mixtape, and the third in the Young Sinatra series. I have only gotten to hear the first couple tracks, plus the leaks, but it is already the best mixtape released so far this year in my opinion. Logic’s combination of lyricism, flow, wordplay, mainstream appeal, and the production on his songs is unmatched in the game today. Welcome to Forever features Trinidad James, Dizzy Wright, Jon Bellion, Kid Ink, Jhene Aiko, and C. Dot Castro. In some ways I wish there were fewer features so we could have more of just Logic, but I guess I should be happy that Logic is getting big enough to work with some of these bigger artists. There are several producers on the project, including Don Cannon and Visionary Music Group’s 6ix. The tape is really art, and I can’t wait to hear the whole thing and will have it on repeat for weeks to come.

I missed this one when it dropped three days ago, but had to post it after I heard it. Dizzy Wright spit an insane verse with lyrics as real as anyone’s. Logic is my favorite freshman, and I was a little disappointed that he just used one of his verses from War Vet (his Rack City remix). But, he did add a couple extra lines at the end, that song was sick, and I’m sure there is some unbelievable new music on the way from Logic (Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever will be released on May 7). I haven’t listened to a lot of Angel Haze in the past, but I might have to start; she had the best wordplay on this particular cypher in my opinion. Check it out for yourself at the link below.

Logic released this new song and music video, Nasty, this afternoon. If you couldn’t tell from the line above, his lyricism on the song is insane, and his aggressivenes makes it even better. The production was handled by Don Cannon, and while I don’t appreciate him screaming his name in the middle of the song, the instrumental is sick. I guess one perk of signing to Def Jam, as Logic recently announced he has, is getting to work with more established producers (although the production on his previous mixtapes has actually been great). Anyway, this is my favorite song Logic has released since he dropped Young Sinatra: Undeniable last year. It’s definitely worth a listen, or possibly ten. No download yet, but I think it’s safe to assume that this will appear on Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, slated for release on May 7.
Def Jam signee Logic dropped this new single today. He fearlessly took on the instrumental from OutKast’s Ms. Jackson. Logic addressed this bold decision on the track, saying “Y’all probably think I’m crazy for touching this instrumental.” Anyone who listened to the song though will know that Logic completely went in. Roll Call will appear on Logic’s upcoming mixtape, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, which is set to release on May 7th. You can listen to the single below.

Today is a HUGE day for Logic. After announcing this morning that he had signed with Def Jam Records, Logic and XXL dropped Logic’s “Freshman Freestyle.” Logic is my favorite of this year’s freshmen, so his was the freestyle that I was most excited about. Luckily he did not disappoint. He only spits for about 45 seconds, but it is absolute fire. Check out the video below, and look out for Logic’s Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever to drop on May 7th.

After announcing yesterday that Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever will be released on May 7th, Logic told fans two features from the free album. He revealed yesterday that Dizzy Wright would be featured, and today Logic told fans that he has also been working with Jhene Aiko and Visionary Music Group labelmated Jon Bellion. A feature from Jon was expected. He’s someone you might not have heard of yet; if you haven’t you should definitely check out his first mixtape, Translations through Speakers. Stay on the lookout for a tracklist and album cover for Welcome to Forever, and make sure to download Logic’s older tapes to support a great artist.
