Logic claims heís recorded over 1700 songs. Heís only shared 150 songs to the public, and with each record heís released, the Maryland-based MC has built a well-deserving strong fan-base. A cult-like following that shares identical ideology as their unsung hero, believing heís one of the best lyricists in hip-hop.

Under Pressure, Logicís debut album with Def Jam was executive produced by No ID, a cosign that more than validates his talents. The LP gives the rest of us a chance to beg his existing fans if thereís still standing room at the back of the bandwagon. Under Pressure is an invitation to look back into Logicís mixtape catalog that a true hip-hop head canít refuse. The beat selection, varying flows, and original song concepts that speak authenticity shows Logicís true artistry would appease any aesthetically appreciative rap fan.

Artists learn about themselves making music more than listeners do while consuming their creativity. 1700 songs later and Logic is still finding himself similar to how heís still trying to figure out life even though he escaped a fucked up family situation and early childhood to only feel lost while adjusting to his newfound fame and financial status. Logic isnít ashamed to flex his new first world problems, but his brutal honesty reminds listeners heís human. The project connects with fans with similar problems coping with growing up and conceptually the coming age toned songs will lead to a lot of quotable tweets and stank face head nods.

Logic has recorded 1700 songs, and his catalog contains only 150 songs. 150 songs later, thereís still so much more to learn about Logicís story – 1700 songs later thereís so much more to life that the rapper is figuring out. The 12 track album Under Pressure proves an underground artist can put out a successful project, and from here on out I bet hip-hop wonít consider Logic an underrated lyricist anymore.

Buy Under Pressure on iTunes:

Respect from a new fan,
Christian Bonoan.

Logic’s Def Jam debut album Under Pressure lives up to his underground hype.
