Asides being a rapper, Logic is also a music producer and has history with Rattpack and Def Jam Recordings. More so, he is a great songwriter, best known for his hit song – 1-800-273-8255. His albums Under Pressure and Everybody placed him well on the path of recognition among the music industry’s elite.
Though he grew up in a troubled home with a mother who was highly addicted to both drugs and alcohol, he learned to put his past experiences into songs, rapping till the hurt gave way to his now renowned lyrics that brought in not just wealth but fame. His is a true representation of from pain to gain.
Logic: Bio & Age
His real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II and he was born on the 22nd of January, 1990. However, he is easily recognised by the name Logic which has echoed the sound of greatness in the entertainment industry since his debut.
He was raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland but never enjoyed the affluence associated with that kind of place as he had to survive under welfare, social services etc. The unstable family environment which he grew up in took its toll on his education as Logic was placed in a class for pupils with behavioral disorders after his mother visited his school. Later in 5th grade, his mother withdrew him in a bid to homeschool him which was never actualized. Instead, he was exposed to lots of videos which led him in building admiration and interest in Frank Sinatra. Social services eventually wedged into the situation and compelled him back to school, just in time for his 8th grade. Logic was unable to finish high school, as he was expelled from for not showing up in school most of the time.
He picked up odd low income jobs such as Joe’s Crab Shack, Jiffy Lube and daycare in order to survive. He would later develop a strong passion for music as he saw it as an escape and it paid off for him. He draws his inspirations from his experiences while growing up and they were not the best of memories a kid should have but never allowed such poor upbringing to shape his future. Like the popular saying goes – “What does not kill you makes you stronger”, these words played out in the life of the musician.
He rose to fame after joining Def Jam Recordings and Visionary Music Group where he released his debut album Titled Under Pressure in 2014. The album dominated American aap, R&B, and hip-hop charts for a while and in 2015, he released his second album titled The Incredible Story’. Logic has about 5 studio albums to his credit.
He has recorded about six internationally recognized awards nominations out of which he has won 3 including Best Fight Against the System award by MTV Video Music Awards through his work titled Black Spider-Man.
2017 saw Logic’s 3rd album titled Everybody hit the top of Billboard 200; his hit single in the album got the status of Triple Platinum as certified by RIAA.
He has always made it clear that his inspiration comes from Frank Sinatra who had a positive influence in his music career.
The acclaimed rapper came from a broken home; his father, Robert Bryson Hall is an African-American; a musician who in his early days did music with Chucks Brown and EU but he was said to be hooked on hard drugs like cocaine, and was mostly absent from his son’s heydays.
On the other hand, his mother (Mary) is Caucasian and is said to have suffered as an alcoholic. Logic confessed that his mother almost choked him to death as a child while she was under influence of hard substances. She was heavy on alcohol, drugs and prostitution, he further alleged that his mother was a racist and called him crude names as a child. His half brothers were also into the drug trade and sometimes sold to his father, Robert. Evidently, he had a nightmarish upbringing.
Girlfriend, Wife, Divorce
Logic was once in a 5-year relationship which he terminated in 2009 to focus on his music career. However, on the 22nd of October 2015, he tied the knot with his girlfriend of two years, Jessica Andrea. Jessica is a singer who is also a famous social media personality. Unfortunately, their marriage lasted for two years before they became separated on the 20th of March, 2018.
Following Logic’s announcement of the separation, Jessica un-followed him on social media, though the rappar still follows her handle. Logic later filed for divorce on April 19, 2018. The two have still maintained their friendship despite the divorce.
The American rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer, has an estimated net worth of about $10 Million. This is the result of a successful award-winning career.
Some of his awards include: Best Fight Against the System at 2017’s MTV Video Music Awards for his work on “Black SpiderMan”, Most Performed R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at the 2017 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards for his work on “Sucker for Pain” and he won ‘Award Winning Songs’ at the 2018 BMI Pop Awards for “1-800-273-8255”. He was also nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2018.
