As with any industry, music of course has a slew of pioneers who have paved the way for acts to follow. For Logic, Drake is one of those visionaries and trailblazers.
In a recent interview with Montreality, the 27-year-old rapper dished on his Canadian contemporary, saying, “I wanna thank you for paving the way for me man, because now I’m paving the way for youngins under me. Your music has taught me so much, when I thought I needed to be this rapper just rapping all the time. You said, ‘Nah, you can rap, you can spit those bars, AND you can sing, AND you can be yourself.'”
“I don’t think I’ve ever gotten the chance to say this, if you see this Drake, thank you for paving the way for me to be the best me that I can be.”
In addition to detailing his admiration for Drake, Logic also touched on the various generations of hip-hop. “When it comes to generations, I am in the middle,” he says. “I had such a reverence and love and respect for all my predecessors. I also love the future, all these younger rappers who are just having a good time.”
“I think that disconnect can come off as rude,” he went on to add. “If you have a 18/19-year-old rapper, sure they’re immature, there’s a lot of things they have yet to learn in life and certain levels of respect might be that.”
Press play above as Logic also mentions being undefeated in Mario Kart, the realest shit he ever wrote, the law of attraction, and a message to anyone contemplating suicide.
