Logic Credits Drake With Allowing Him to Be the "Best Me"

"You said, 'Nah, you can rap, you can spit those bars, and you can sing, and you can be yourself.'"

Logic has never shied away from showing love to those who have either inspired his career or influenced his music and Drake is no exception. 

In a new interview with MONTREALITY, the Def Jam MC once again thanked Drake was serving up a formal education:

"Your music has taught me so much," Logic said. "And when I thought I just needed to be this rapper, rapping all the time, you said, 'Nah, you can rap, you can spit those bars, and you can sing, and you can be yourself.' Honestly, I don't think I've ever gotten the chance to say this: If you see this, Drake, thank you for paving the way for me to be the best me I can be."
