Logic Among the Best Rappers in Maryland
The Maryland rapper has been in the music industry for many years and has produced quite a number of albums. The announcement he made comes shortly after he released a new track titled “Insipio,” where he disses rappers who put fame and money above their careers and creativity.
“I don’t give a damn about rhyming, I like the way that that jewelry be shining / Nope, that ain’t the way to think about this rap shit / I’m a musician, I love the art / Shoulda never let you in from the start / It ain’t one man or another we one in the same / One of us wants all the money and fame the other just loves the game,” Logic rapped in the track.
Logic’s Long Music Career
Logic’s last album, 2014’s Under Pressure, debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA, so it’s safe to say that expectations are high for “College Park.” If the first two singles are anything to go by, it looks like Logic’s new album will be a hit. Logic has amassed such an incredible fan base and has been blessed to make the right moves as a businessman.
