Logic Signs $30 Million Deal with Def Jam

Logic Signs $30 Million Deal with Def Jam

Fresh off his mixtape Bobby Tarantino II, Logic is living the good life, which includes a lucrative deal with Def Jam.

During his interview with Beats 1 host Zane Lowe, the Maryland rapper confirmed that he signed a new deal with his label worth $30 million. “When I first signed my deal, the advance was like 200 grand,” he said. “So going from Section 8 and food stamps and welfare to 200 grand was life-changing, but the life change I’m talking about is the $30 million-dollar deal I just signed. That shit freaked me out. I felt like a target.”

Logic alluded to the deal on the Big Sean-assisted “Wassup” off his latest mixtape. “I just updated my old deal,” he raps on the 6ix-produced cut. “Told Def Jam no less than 20 mill…and they cut that shit!”

BTII is now on pace to top the Billboard 200 with 110-125,000 equivalent album units (27-32,000 traditional). Meanwhile, he’s working on his next full-length album, which he describes as a fusion between James Brown and Red Hot Chili Peppers, with help from Travis Barker. Beyond music, he is writing a novel and working on his first film, which he wrote.

Next, he hints at a solo arena tour and hopes to join Drake for a co-headlining jaunt. But regardless what happens, he says he’s thrilled. “Bro, I’m so happy, bro,” he exclaimed. “I have everything I could have ever wanted in my life, bro. Do you understand? I can tour the world. I can do movies, books, chill, take care of my family? I’m stoked!”
