Maryland-bred musician Logic burst onto the music scene through a series of mixtapes that led to a significant, rabid underground fan base. These mixtapes garnered millions of downloads and streams that jumpstarted a worldwide tour all before signing a record deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2014. His debut album Under Pressure (2014) was hailed as one of the year’s finest hip-hop debuts. Following the success of his sophomore album, The Incredible True Story (2015), Logic embarked on his 2016 Incredible World Tour across the U.S. and Canada. In 2017, Logic continues to raise the bar with the release of his third full-length album Everybody, which became his most commercially successful album to date debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart with 250,000 copies sold within its first week.
