Logic’s second album since his return from retirement has arrived. The stacked, 30 track album is titled Vinyl Days and sees Logic return to a more nostalgic vibe across his verses.
Following a number of singles that have garnered millions of streams, the album now drops with a total of 30 tracks, with 9 being skits. Just like previous Logic LP’s, the album is a story, intertwined with skits. The outro record; ‘Sayonara’ is a 10 minute thank you, as the Maryland rapper highlights all the individuals involved in the making of the album, from the finance team to the sample clearers.
With Vinyl Days, Logic opted to recruit a number of smaller artists, to showcases their abilities on a larger stage than they’d be used to. Beyond the up and coming talents, established artists are found throughout the album, with features from the likes of RZA, Royce Da 5’9″, Action Bronson and more. Even Morgan Freeman makes an appearance, introducing Logic as the GOAT. The LP boasts a perfect mix of solely Logic records, and collaborations.
Vinyl Days is set to be Logic’s last piece of work with Def Jam, in which he will then go independent. The next project is said to be his College Park album.
The album is simply terrific. Whilst the skits may not be on repeat, they create a better experience when listening to the album front to back. Logic’s lyricism is at its best and is sure to be noted by many. It may not be his best album (not something easy to achieve), but it’s certainly something to be proud of and is sure to get even better with time.
Following the album’s release, Logic will hit the road on his ‘Vinyl Verse’ tour with Wiz Khalifa, starting July 27 in Irvine, Calif. with special guests 24kGoldn, DJ Drama, C Dot Castro, and Fedd the God.
