Well, I’m going to try to cast my line and see if I can reel anything in. Let’s start with this interview.
“Flexicution” and “Wrist” both seem to fit the bid for the “fun album.” Both songs make you want to get up and jam out. This hunch of mine was further established when Logic coined this summer to be the “turn up season” when he was being interviewed by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio.
In February, I had the pleasure of meeting Logic in Minneapolis on “The Incredible World Tour.” Before the meet-and-greet, Logic did his sound check and gave the VIPs an opportunity to ask questions. During this session, Logic revealed some very interesting tidbits of information. Someone asked the obvious question, “What’s next?” Logic reaffirmed what he said during the Rolling Stone interview. He said he had plans to do a fun, turn up album and another introspective album about “God, the world and life.” (Remember, this was in February, so I knew all of this before the Rolling Stone interview was released.)
Logic also revealed something during the big Q&A that I don’t believe has been publicly reported yet, so I’ll let you guys in on a little inside information. I raised my hand and was lucky enough to get called on by Young Sinatra, himself. Knowing that one of Logic’s main influences is film and being an aspiring screenwriter myself, I asked him if he’d ever consider scoring any kind of film. After saying that he’d love to do the music for movies in the future, Logic announced that he will be starring and directing in an upcoming film, but that’s all the further he’d go into that topic.
Another endeavor Logic dove into was his very own gaming channel on YouTube. On these videos, Logic shares his own video game experience with the 360,000+ subscribers. It’s a cool deal because it seems to bridge the gap between rap music and gaming—something that, in the past, seemed to not really go hand-in-hand. It also reaffirms that Logic wears his influences on his sleeve and truly does what he loves—rap, video games, space, anime, film, etc.
So, if Logic is currently working on two rap albums, filming a movie and sharing his gaming experiences on his YouTube channel, when will these albums see the light of day? Or better yet, will “Flexicution” and “Wrist” have a home on one of these albums or will they just be two loosies? On Beats 1 Radio, Zane Lowe tried to pull some information out of Logic, but he wouldn't give up anything. He said he's just trying to have fun right now.
Logic jokingly (or maybe not jokingly) said these albums probably wouldn’t come out for two years. Well, a two-year wait might seem feasible with how many things Logic is juggling right now.
Whether “Flexicution” and “Wrist” find homes on the upcoming fun album, the introspective album or if they become strong loosies, it’s safe to say Logic is doing his thing and truly coming into his own right now.
Logic will hit the road with G-Eazy, YG and Yo Gotti on “The Endless Summer Tour,” which kicks off in Dallas, Texas on June 28. Until then, we have been blessed with two epic bangers in “Flexicution” and “Wrist” featuring Pusha T.
