Logic has been around for over a decade and released several top entertaining albums and singles. Sadly his latest project was recently scrapped.
During a recent YouTube Livestream on Tuesday, Logic decided to scrap a finished album that featured him rapping solely over unreleased J Dilla production. He explained that the decision was personal and had nothing to do with clearance issues.
“I did a whole J Dilla album but that’s another story for another time,”
“And it wasn’t nothing with the estate… everything was fine, It’s just… I was like, ‘I’m straight.’ Like, I recorded this whole J Dilla album with all unreleased beats and shit and I was like, ‘I’m okay.’”
Logic would rather see the production fall into Boldy James. What James did was last year announced his own project over the late producer’s unreleased beats.
“I’d rather see Boldy do it. He’s gonna fuckin’ kill it,”
“The fact that I could even rap on it was really good. And who knows, maybe it’ll see the light of day one time. But, we’ll see.”
“I’ve actually got an announcement to make,”
“You talking about they don’t even know what’s about to happen, you don’t even know what’s about to happen. I got a whole entirely produced J Dilla project that I’m about to drop. I would tell you the name of it, but I had to tell you that. I got the last of the Dilla stash.
“A lot of people owe their success, you know, not owe their success, but he alley-ooped a lot of people’s success,”
“The list goes on, I’m not about to start name-dropping, but if you don’t know who this guy is, you need to do your history. J Dilla, Detroit, stand up.”
Logic is busy with other collaborations. A possible project involves actor Rainn Wilson, who’s best known for playing Dwight Schrute on The Office. It’s unclear if anything will come out of their session but Logic did recently confirm a collaborative project with producer Madlib.
