Logic is one of the hottest emcees on the mic, right now. Hailing from Maryland, this bar-heavy lyricist rolls as he could be from one of the five boroughs. Staten Island in particular!
Especially with his 2018 release of “Wu Tang Forever” featuring Wu-Tang Clan, he seamlessly blends into his own unit within the 36 Chambers. With the track, all you have to do is close your eyes, and you are transported to the 199os. W’s in the air flapping, mobbing the stage with a groove that could only be described with the visual of a head nod and bounce. Could it be that Logic is just a mega fan that has appreciated the group since he was a toddler? Or is there an authentic connection between him and the group? After all, on this song, he has Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, Jackpot Scotty Wotty, U-God, Masta Killa, and GZA all spitting on this blazing track.
According to Inspectah Deck, the love is real. While doing an interview on WIRED with fellow Clan members U-God and Master Killa, he was asked: “Is Logic was in The Clan?” The Bronx born Deck answered, “He might as well be. Logic is my little man. I like Logic. He used to be on the road with me back in the day touring. We did a couple of shows.”
Master Killa interrupts and says “Hell no, Logic is not in the Wu-Tang. We got to split the pie again?” After some chuckles from the Wu Brothers ensue, but Deck remains firm, “We already got 52 members, Logic come on in man… come on in.”
U God always one to take it to the streets, jokingly added that he “might have to get his chest caved in though.” Referencing an old school gang initiation that young men would go through to get down with a crew.
Everyone extended their love and perhaps the answer is just this… Logic is unofficially Wu… Maybe in the tradition of Shyheim.
Shyheim dropped a record in 1994 entitled Shyheim AKA the Rugged Child, and an affiliate of the Wu, he went on to make movies and star in TLC’s classic “Waterfalls” music video.
Logic’s star is on the rise, with or without the Wu stamp of approval.
In 2017, he won the MTV VMA for Best First Against the System video with his “Black Spider Man” and the BMI R&B/ Hip-Hop Award for Most Performed Songs with his hit “Sucker for Pain.” He has been nominated for a gang of other awards including a Grammy for Song of The Year with “1-800-273-8255.
Logic has one gold certified mixtape, two gold certified albums and one platinum-certified album by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
