Logic Says He Doesn't Make Music for Hip-Hop "Culture," He Makes Music for "My Fans"

"What is the culture, even? I don't even know what that means."

Following the release of his new project, Bobby Tarantino II, Logic sat down with Hard Knock TV host Nick Huff Barili for an in-depth interview about, among other topics, his experience at The GRAMMYs, success and the motivation behind his material.

"I don't make music for hip-hop, I make music for my fans, you know, they primarily love hip-hop music, I love hip-hop music," Logic told Huff. "I used to have this thing in my head, I wanted to make music for 'the culture' and I was like, 'What is the culture, even?' I don't even know what that means. I'm just going to make music for people who like my music and it can spread a positive message. And that's it. That's what I do."

In 2017, Logic struck Platinum (4x), literally, with the release of his GRAMMY-nominated smash, "1-800-273-8255," a record aimed at creating suicide prevention awareness

Though Logic is way too smart to claim he doesn't know what the expression "for the culture" really means, at the very least, people should respect his personal musical mission statement.

Rather than trying to create material that appeals to a somewhat ambiguous industry standard, Logic's chief concern is (and always has been) pleasing his already rabid fanbase. And why should he be concerned? Earlier this year, the 28-year-old re-signed with Def Jam for a reported $30 million.
