On Sunday (October 30), the Maryland rapper posted a video to his Instagram showing him handing over a drum kit to his two-year-old son Bobby, who he welcomed in 2020 with wife Brittney Noell.
“Just push them here,” Logic tells his boy, who is playing with the various buttons. “Just the colors baby.”
“Teaching my boy how to make beats,” Logic wrote in the caption.
Apparently impressed with what he saw, Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J jumped into the comments section to inquire about buying a beat from Logic’s son. “Man you fool tell lil Bobby I need a beat for my new album,” he wrote.
The heartwarming video comes after Logic recently wrapped his North American Vinyl Verses Tour with Wiz Khalifa. The trip started on July 27 and ended in St. Louis, Missouri on September 2nd. 24kGoldn, DJ Drama, Fedd The God and C Dot Castro also appeared at several stops along the way, with Berner and Rubi Rose also appearing on a few select dates.
The tour was in support of Logic’s album Vinyl dayswhich dropped on June 17, and features performances from Action Bronson, Russ, Current$y, RZA, AZ, The game and other. The project marked his final Def Jam release, which he left earlier this year benefit of an agreement at BMG that would allow him to own his masters.
The move to BMG serves as Logic’s first label switch since dropping his debut album, Under pressureat Def Jam in 2014.
“There’s a lot of bullshit in the music industry,” Logic said of the move in a statement. “I’m just happy to move on to a place where I can be independent and respected as an artist and feel like I’m in control of my career.”
While sitting on Logan Paul’s Impulsive podcast back in July, Logic said Vinyl days came together in just two weeks so he could get out of his Def Jam contract as quickly as possible.
“I made that album in 12 days so I could get off Def Jam,” he admitted. “That’s my favorite part—I’m out of Def Jam. I made that album so I could go and guess what? I left them with some of the dumbest shit I could give them. It’s not like I just wiped my ass. What am I excited about? I’m excited to be independent, I’m excited to do my thing.”
He added: “I’m really happy knowing that I represented and quietly was the face of the label – one of the worst hip-hop labels ever – and that I sold millions and millions of records and gave them billions and billions of streams, and that it was a good partnership. And I couldn’t be happier to get out.”
