Logic says that his dad was not a constant presence in his life growing up, but that when his father was around, it was not always a positive experience.
“Dad never really lived with me and when he did live with us he would steal things,” Logic says during an interview with VIBE. “I remember one time he stole my identity. My name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II and his name is Robert Bryson Hall and he used my social security card and got like 10 credit cards under my name and was buying and doing all these things and potentially could have ruined my credit before it even began, but I was 10 years old and the government realized it.”
Signed to Def Jam Recordings, Logic says that his forthcoming album will not feature any guests.
“I wanted to tell my story and I didn’t want anybody to tell their story on what I’m doing,” Logic says. “I kind of wanted to Illmatic it for the most part. However, that doesn’t mean that they won’t be any dope-ass features on the deluxe or the bonus. Just because it’s a very raw Hip Hop album doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be anything for the radio on the deluxe.”
Nonetheless, the Maryland rapper has a list of artists he would like to work with. Nas tops the list. “I’d love to work with Drake,” Logic says. “I’d love to work with Cole who is also a homie of mine. Kanye obviously. More than a verse I want a Kanye beat.”
Logic also provided an update regarding his While You Wait EP.
“I am so focused on the album and the fans are so focused on the album that I’m probably going to drop it but who knows,” he says. “Certain samples could get cleared and we could just drop the first single for the album and ain’t nobody gon’ care about the EP because its the free songs I’ve been putting out anyway. So hopefully that should be coming out. That’s the plan but the album is my main priority right now.”
