After creating a significant buzz over the last couple of years with his sharp rhymes, Logic is finally ready to release his debut album Under Pressure via VMG/Def Jam. Quite a fitting title for the young emcee who is under some sort of pressure to pull off an amazing album. Check out the dope artwork above which depicts a painting of Logic and his homies doing what they love in the studio.
Coming this Fall.
Says Logic on the cover and the album to Complex:
“The album title and artwork came effortlessly but it was a journey getting there,” Logic said over email. “I always knew I wanted that feel you see in the detail, the half dark half bright and beautiful look. The entire album is about the two sides of myself. I could have done one of two main things when creating the album. Anyone who knows me knows I love all music, from the raw hip-hop to the fun shit they play at parties, but I decided to make a very “classic” hip hop album, I wanted to RAP, my fan base is huge it stretches across the globe, but no matter how famous you get someone out there still has no clue who you are, so for those that discover me from this album I wanted then to go, “Oh okay I get it!” They will immediately know who I am and understand the message in my music.
I gave him a collection of various old photos from different angles of the old place and he got it right to every last detail, so the day one fans will remember and enjoy,” Logic said over email. “As for the album titled Under Pressure is the title track on the album, I produced and wrote it while I was on tour with Kid Cudi, I had named the song “Under Pressure” on the road, but it wasn’t until I came home that I realized how important the song was, it was the FIRST song that not only began the album process but showed me the direction I was going. The song under pressure has two parts, the first half is me being under pressure as Logic, while the second half is me being under Pressure as Bobby. So essentially the entire album is about the duality of man. Or in this case one man growing up in terrible conditions and over coming.”
UPDATE: Logic has unveiled the 12 song strong track list of the album. According to this list, there is no guest appearance on the album.
