A High Net Worth Built In Music

How rich is Logic? As of early-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $10 million, mostly earned through a successful career in the music industry. Most of his musical releases have charted highly in the Billboard charts, and he’s also been nominated for several awards, and so as he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Making Music and Albums – Finding Success

Logic had many family troubles at a young age, as his father suffered from cocaine addiction, while his mother suffered from alcoholism, and his siblings were also part of the drug trade, even selling to their father; his father was initially absent during his childhood, but he was able to reconnect with his father thanks to his talents in rap. He attended Gaithersburg High School, but was expelled after he began skipping classes.

At the age of 13, Logic would meet Solomon Taylor who would become his mentor in rap and hip hop.  He would start listening to a lot of music from the hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan which further sparked his affection for the genre, and he was inspired to start writing lyrics, and then first performed in 2009 under the stage name “Psychological”. He released an unofficial mixtape – “Psychological – Logic: The Mixtape” – which would allow him to become the opening act for popular artists such as Pitbull and Ludacris.

He would work on his first official mixtape entitled “Young, Broke & Infamous”, which was well received by critics, and led to him being signed to the independent label Visionary Music Group. He then released his second mixtape entitled “Young Sinatra”, which received critical acclaim from numerous publications, and his songs also started to find traction online in websites such as YouTube, so he produced his third mixtape “Young Sinatra: Undeniable”, which would lead to his first national headlining tour.

In 2013, Logic became featured in the annual “Top 10 Freshmen List” by XXL, and produced his fourth mixtape entitled “Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever”, which became a critical success and received over 700,000 downloads on DatPiff. He then signed with Def Jam Records which would lead to him working on another album, but also gave him the opportunity to tour with other artists such as Kid Cudi, Big Sean, and Tyler, the Creator.

He then focused more on the creation of his album and would tour with EDM band Krewella in 2014. He also released several songs concurrent with the production of his album before announcing that no featured artists would appear on his album as he felt that it was very personal. He would release the song “Under Pressure” which was the title track and name of the album, and another single – “Buried Alive” – in promotion of the album, which debuted in second spot of the Billboard Top Hip-Hop/R&B Chart, and sold 70,000 copies in its first week.

In 2015, Logic started working on his second album “The Incredible True Story”, and released the single entitled “Young Jesus”, the first from the album. The album surpassed his debut album and reached the third spot of the Billboard 200 on its debut. He followed up with a nationwide tour, and the following year released the mixtape “Bobby Tarantino” after three years of not releasing any new mixtape material. In 2017, he revealed a new album in the works entitled “Everybody”, heavily promoted on his social media pages. The album would debut on the top spot of the US Billboard 200, and its lead single “1-800-273-8255” became certified triple platinum by the RIAA. One of his latest projects is the mixtape “Bobby Tarantino II”.

Trying to Balance Relationships and Marriage

Logic ended a five year relationship in 2009 in order to fully commit to his music; he mentions that unlike other artists, he literally sacrifices a lot in order to make his music. In 2015, he married singer Jessica Andrea after being a relationship of two years. However, they separated in 2018, but both mention that they are friends, and did not cite anger as a reason for the split.
