Fresh off his gig headlining NYC's Governors Ball, Logic stopped by Elvis Duran and the Morning Show to chat about his debut album, Everybody.
We first fell in love with Logic after hearing his single "1-800-273-8255," ft. Alessia Cara and Khalid. Titled after the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, his song sheds light on the very real struggles of mental health and offers a message of hope to those struggling with suicidal thoughts.
"I remember working on my first album. I knew that it was something I wanted to be honest and from my heart. I knew that I wanted to tell stories and I wanted to paint a picture of a message of positivity, truly. Cause that's the whole vibe: peace, love, and positivity," Logic told us about Everybody.
"I really love what I do and I really want to make sure the world hears this positive message."
In the spirit of individuality, Logic took a few moments to show us what was in his fanny pack, floral print of course.
- A book for writing lyrics and ideas.
- His 'Zelda' wallet.
- A pen.
- Tea Tree toothpicks (to aid in kicking his smoking habit).
- A couple dollars.
Nothing sexier than a person rocking the ever convenient fanny pack! One of the many reasons we are jumping on the Logic fan-train!
We also chatted with the 27-year-old rapper about keeping his message pure and ignoring the negative comments. Logic admitted he was scared to make his debut album and was nervous about how people would receive his most inner thoughts, but quickly realized his most important job is to give a voice to those who don't have a voice.
"If I'm constantly trying to work for different people's approval, I'm never going to find happiness within myself and that right there is a big reason on why I don't focus on what others tell me." He later continued, "You just have to be happy with who you are. I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not."
Logic will be headlining at NYC's Barclays Center on August 8th. He made the big announcement during his set at Governors Ball. Tickets are on pre-sale now!
