Logic Discusses Earning "Life Changing" Money
publish date: 2018-03-13
In a conversation with Beats 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe, Logic opened up about his experience going from poverty to the top of the music industry.
The Maryland-rapper reflects on transitioning from living in Section 8 housing and receiving government aid to signing his first deal with a $200,000 advance, calling it “life changing.”
He shared his surprise when during initial negotiations with his label, they agreed to his suggestion of a $30 million deal. The Def Jam-signee tells Lowe, “I woke up and I realized how much money I amassed. It’s not necessarily about things monetarily … but I woke up and was like, 'I never have to do anything for the rest of my life.'” He expresses that he now feels “free” to make music.
