Transparency is the key to a rapper who wants long-term success. When an artist plays the role of someone they’re not, personal song concepts break the mold and are out of the question. Yet, individuality is what connects with listeners and separates the leaders from the pack. That’s where Logic and the title track to his While You Wait EP come into play.
The latest leak from the Maryland MC might be a freebie to tide us over until his Def Jam debut drops later this year, but the honesty oozing from this kid is unquestionable. Using a relaxing instrumental as his palette, the Ratt Pack click leader speaks on everything from breaking bread with specific fans to living out of the back of a van, assessing his uphill come up in way that leaves listeners no choice but to appreciate a line like “It’s hard to stay humble when you the man.”
With an open book approach in play, Logic already has an upper-hand on half the game and should only up his chance for longevity as the year progresses. Don’t believe us? He’ll be proving his worth in person, in a city near you, on his upcoming While You Wait tour.
