Logic is making major moves on the business side of things with the announcement of his new label BobbyBoy Records.
The first Hip-Hop artist to have a New York Times number 1 novel has had his own label Elysium Records for a while but he’s decided to change the name and partner with Def Jam in a joint venture. BobbyBoy Records’ initial roster is comprised of singer-songwriter John Lindahl, Damian Lemar Hudson (featured on ‘Black Spiderman’), Big Lenbo (featured on ‘Young Jesus’) and Kajo (featured on ‘The Adventures of Stoney Bob’). Watch the rapper’s video announcement below.
“Def Jam has been my home for years. And now standing by them side by side as a businessman is incredible,” said Logic. “Backing for my label to support the artists I believe in is a dream come true and I am so excited to give my fans something even more in this next chapter of my life! The RattPack just got a whole lot bigger! I pray everyone will support them as you have me over the years! Juggling something of this magnitude is no easy feat, but my artists make it easy.”
“Logic has proven himself to be an incredibly talented, instinctive and prolific artist, writer and producer,” said Paul Rosenberg, Chairman & CEO of Def Jam Recordings. “The success of our partnership is rooted in our collective belief in Bobby’s creative vision and his talented team. We’re proud and excited to provide a home for Logic and BobbyBoy Records.”
