On Sunday (October 30), the Maryland rapper posted a video to his Instagram that shows him handing a drum kit off to his two-year-old son Bobby, whom he welcomed in 2020 with wife Brittney Noell.
“Just press these here,” Logic says to his boy, who is toying around with the different buttons. “Just the colors baby.”
“Teaching my boy to make beats,” Logic wrote in the caption.
Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J was seemingly impressed with what he saw, hopping in the comments section to inquire about purchasing a beat from Logic’s son. “Mane that’s dope tell lil Bobby I need a beat for my new album,” he wrote.

The heartwarming video comes after Logic recently wrapped on his North American Vinyl Verse Tour with Wiz Khalifa. The tour kicked off on July 27 and concluded in St. Louis, Missouri on September 2. 24kGoldn, DJ Drama, Fedd The God and C Dot Castro also appeared at numerous stops along the way, with Berner and Rubi Rose performing on a few select dates as well.
The tour was in support of Logic’s album Vinyl Days, which dropped on June 17, and features appearances from Action Bronson, Russ, Curren$y, RZA, AZ, The Game and others. The project marked his final Def Jam release, which he left earlier this year in favor of a deal at BMG that would allow him to own his masters.
The move to BMG serves as Logic’s first label change since dropping his debut album, Under Pressure, on Def Jam in 2014.
“There’s a lot of bullshit in the music industry,” Logic said of the move in a statement. “I’m just glad to move on to a place where I can be independent and respected as an artist, and feel like I’m in control of my career.”
While sitting down on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast back in July, Logic said Vinyl Days came together in just two weeks so he could get out of his Def Jam contract as soon as possible.
“I made that album in 12 days so I could get off Def Jam,” he admitted. “That’s my favorite part – I’m off Def Jam. I made that album so I could leave, and guess what? I left them with some of the dopest shit I could give them. It’s not like I just wiped my ass. What am I excited about? I’m excited to be independent, I’m excited to do my thing.”
He added: “I’m really happy to know that I represented and low-key was the face of the label — one of the illest Hip Hop labels of all time — and that I sold millions and millions of records and gave them billions and billions of streams, and that it was a good partnership. And I couldn’t be happier to get the fuck out.”
