With his goal to be the "most versatile musician to ever do it" 22-year-old Maryland native Logic's meteoric rise is driven by a massive nationwide fan base. As a self-proclaimed "compulsive perfectionist," Logic has been honing his craft since the age of 16. Initially his career blossomed after releasing his first project "Young, Broke, and Infamous." Quickly gaining recognition in his local area he was able to grab the attention of a few tastemakers. Soon after Logic inked a deal with independent record label Visionary Music Group. With a strategic marketing plan in place Logic was able to reach a much broader audience with his second project, "Young Sinatra." Soon after its release Logic was able to gain respect nationally within the hip hop community as his memorizing lyrical ability demanded an audiences attention. In April 2012 Logic released "Young Sinatra: Undeniable" under VMG, his third project which amassed 60,000 downloads in the first 24 hours. To date the free album has well over 400,000 downloads. Undeniable, propelled the young artist into the spotlight breaking through with a massive online presence. His now worldwide fan base has pushed the young rapper into the forefront of hip hop. In July 2012 Logic was successfully able to headline a sold out 25 city national tour.

As a youngster, Brooklyn MC Joey BadA$$ was baffled by Nas' 1994 classic Illmatic. The iconic album cover featured a childhood photo of the then 20-year-old God's Son. "I seen him as a kid and I thought he was a kid rapping, I was just confused," Joey told Mixtape Daily. After all, how can a kid that young deliver such impactful and insightful records like "Life's a Bitch" and "The World Is Yours"?

Somewhere along the way, Joey's initial confusion must have led to some sort of inspiration, because at 17 years old, he has already delivered a single that seems to surpass the subject matter of other spitters in his age bracket. The militant-minded "Survival Tactics," borrows its instrumental from the 1998 Styles of Beyond song of the same name.
