Def Jam is putting some serious bank behind the latest addition to their roster. Listen in as rapper Logic talks to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 about his new mixtape, the response to his last album, ‘Everybody,’ and his mega deal with Def Jam:


“When I first signed my deal, the advance was like 200 grand,” said Logic. “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 s**t freaked me out. I felt like a target, like that was the moment I felt like oh my god.”


$30 million is NBA money. Is he worth that large of an investment? Only time, tours, and sales numbers will tell. Hear more in the video below:
