Fresh off the release of his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape, Logic has inked a new deal with Def Jam Records… for $30 million.
During a recent interview with Beats 1, the rapper confirmed the massive deal.
“When I first signed my deal, the advance was like 200 grand,” Logic recalled. “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 sh*t freaked me out. I felt like a target.”
Logic previously alluded to the deal on the Big Sean-assisted single “Wassup”, off his latest mixtape. “I just updated my old deal,” he raps. “Told Def Jam no less than 20 mill…and they cut that sh*t!”
Bobby Tarantino II is currently on pace to top the Billboard 200, with around 100,000 to 125,000 units moved.
Next up for Logic is his next full-length album, which he says is a fusion between James Brown and Red Hot Chili Peppers… and he’s working with Travis Barker.
Logic is also writing a novel and working on his first film, which he wrote.
