Logic / Maryland
Sir Robert Bryson Hall II (born January 22, 1990), known by his stage name Logic, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Logic expressed an interest in music as a teenager, and ventured into a musical career in early 2009, releasing a mixtape titled Young, Broke & Infamous in 2010. He would then sign with Visionary Music Group, before releasing two more mixtapes over two years.
Logic went on to release his fourth mixtape Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever in 2013 to critical acclaim. Following the mixtape, Logic secured a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings and released his debut studio album Under Pressure in October 2014, which eventually went on to go gold with Under Pressure. The single “Under Pressure” preceded the album, and the album debuted at number four on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. It was later confirmed by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to have sold more than 171,000 copies.
Logic’s second studio album The Incredible True Story was released in November 2015, receiving mostly positive reviews from critics. It was later confirmed to have sold over 185,000 copies in the United States. Logic soon released Bobby Tarantino in 2016. It is his fifth mixtape and the first since Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever.
