Logic has long remained a student of the game, and he’s now announced a new project while showing love to those who paved the way for him.
On Wednesday (August 16), the Maryland MC revealed plans to drop a new mixtape called Inglorious Basterd, sharing its cover art as well as a snippet from its opening track. “Still Pushin” is a remix of Lupe Fiasco’s early-career hit, “Kick Push,” and is now available to stream online.
“Here is the album artwork for my free mixtape Inglorious Basterd coming soon!!” Bobby wrote on Instagram. “I just dropped the intro song called ‘Still Pushin’ over Lupe Fiasco’s classic ‘Kick Push’ for free for everyone on Discord!! Join and enjoy!! #RattPack.”
In the song’s outro, the 33-year-old spitter emphasizes his love for the craft by pointing out that the upcoming tracklist will be his “first free mixtape in ten years.”
Logic has one of the busiest minds in Hip Hop, and one of his latest endeavors as a producer is a collaboration with Morrisville’s own Asher Roth.
In July, the former frat-rap star joined Luke Bailey on a new episode of the Fly Fidelity podcast, during which he discussed coming up in the blog era and switching lanes as an artist soon after his breakthrough.
The episode featured Asher revealing an exciting new detail about a project he is currently working on: his upcoming EP will be produced entirely by Logic.
To those familiar with the 37-year-old MC’s work following his “I Love College” phase, this alliance should come as no surprise. Much like Logic, Asher has devoted much of his career to writing songs centered on lyricism, so the pair joining forces does in fact make a lot of sense.
Logic’s last full length release was the 17-track College Park, released in February. Since then, he has released a string of singles and made several guest appearances on songs by his peers.
