Logic

Who is Logic?

Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, most commonly known as Logic, was given his shot to chase his dreams in 2013 when Kid Cudi brought him on tour. He made his debut at Redrocks Amphitheater on September 16, 2013 for the Cud Life Tour. In his early 20’s, Logic crushed every stage he stepped foot on, debuting many underground mixtapes: Young, Broke and Infamous, Young Sinatra, Young Sinatra: Undeniable, and Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever. He created a huge following through these lyrical mixtapes and freestyles, called his #Ratpack. In 2014 he signed a record deal with Def Jam Records, premiering his debut album Under Pressure. Huffington Post, iTunes and MTV claim Under Pressure to be the best Hip Hop album of the year.

Logic continued to emerge in the music scene with his first headlining tour at Red Rocks Amphitheater on August 14, 2017, debuting his newest album Everybody. This album is considered to be his best, because it resonates with millions of Americans who suffer from depression and anxiety. With 6.8 million views, “1-800-273-8255 (Ft. Alessia Cara and Khalid)” continues to be one of the most powerful songs in his career thus far. As a result of this album, his transparency about modern day societal issues continues to bring people together from all walks of life.

Silas, YBN Cordae and JID to Start the Night

In the midst of a windy fall October night in Colorado, Logic took over Red Rocks for the second time on October 16, 2019. The night was one of a fantastic beauty. Once you get inside the amphitheater, the wind calmed and got disguised by the best rocks in the world. The crowd began to roar as Silas came onto the stage. This was a very touching moment as he made his Red Rocks debut. The energy you saw at this moment was breath taking. Silas translated that energy to the crowd and worked to get the night started off right.

Nevertheless, the crowd got even louder when YBN Cordae came onto the stage, making his first appearance at Red Rocks as well as debuting his mixtape YBN. His interaction with the crowd called for a dance party from beginning to end. YBN was making everyone go wild, by using his unique sound mixed with variety, changing up the energy with every track. The crowd was absolutely going bonkers, chanting and jumping up and down with the beat. Most importantly, YBN was taking the crowd into a new dimension with his music.

JID

Destine Choice Route, who is most commonly known as JID, was on direct support duties. He premiered tracks produced by J-Cole that have a smooth lyrical flow mixed with a variety of tempos, resembling Logic himself. After every track he got the crowd to roar, saying “make some noise for yourself”. This was very sentimental, because it makes his set about his supporters, not himself. JID’s hype man kept the energy high each and every song, preparing for the build ups and drops.

Logic and The Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

Then, it was time for Logic to take the stage. His influence to inspire his #Ratpack was on a new dimension. Logic spoke about Peace, Love and Positivity. He gives many hope and prosperity to live through the battle of depression, anxiety and racism. His crowd interactions were exceptional, flowing from music to comedy, to inspiration. The crowd was not being loud enough, so he would cut the track and restarts it until the energy was at the perfect level. When he says dance, you danced, when he says put your hands up, you put your hands up, when he says jump, you jumped.

Following his performance, Logic cut the music to talk about his inspirations. Kid Cudi is his biggest inspiration. He is so humble and respectful of the people that gave him a chance to be himself, Kid Cudi did just that by bringing him on tour in 2013. Wu-Tang and Eminem are others who inspire him to be the best person he can possibly be. He honored their influence by throwing back the tracks produced by them.

Conclusion

Next, he brought up Silas on stage and spoke about his earlier days when he put out a few mixtapes. He mentioned that he received a letter from a 12 year old, stating that his mixtapes are legendary. While getting this letter from the 12 year old, Logic also received a mixtape from this 12 year old. As an underground artist, Logic was incredibly inspired by the boy. The boy then turns, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and now 21. Exchanging letters and mixtapes for 9 years, Logic had no choice other than signing him to Bobbyboy records. The boy he is referencing is of course Silas. JID then came up on stage and began to rap battle with Logic, inspired by how Eminem began to become known.

In the end, Logic got the whole crowd to light up the sky by premiering his #1 hit “1-800-273-8255 (Ft. Alessia Cara and Khalid)”. The crowd was in sync during the whole track, waving side to side. Tingling sensations were climbing up and down everyone’s body due to the monumental message that this track brings to the #Ratpack. On the whole, the prosecution of his band and production was on cue all night. #PeaceLovePositivity
