Logic Reminisces On The 'Cringe' Moment When Nas Tried To Sign Him
Logic (L), Nas (R)

Logic was previously courted by Nas to sign to his Mass Appeal imprint, even though it didn't work out, the Maryland native remembers the pre-fame meeting fondly, despite an unpleasant time.



Logic shared a story of his meeting with the legendary rapper in the early 2010s in a new interview-style clip released to his Instagram, noting that the cringe moment arose from a line he'd rapped that was quite the reverse of his real life.


“I then find out that Nas wants to sign me. And I’m like, ‘Oh my God! This is crazy! Nas, my idol, wants to sign me!” Logic began. “One of the first things he says … I was like, ‘Oh man, this is a nice room! You got drinks and all this stuff.’ And he’s like, ‘I ain’t got none of that $100,000 wine you be sipping on.’”



He continued: “Because I have this line in I think it’s ‘Numbers,’ where I’m like, ‘I’m at the penthouse popping bottles of that $100,000 wine!” Ugh, cringe! And I’m so broke. $100,000 wine? It’s like, are you joking? Like, what? But you’re on HOC. You’re on food stamps. You’re talking about $100,000 wine? You can’t even buy grapes. [But] I thought that was cool because he’s like, reciting my own lyrics back to me.” 




While he doesn't say when the meeting took place, Numbers was released in the spring of 2012 on his Young Sinatra: Undeniable project, and he signed to Def Jam in 2013, so it most likely took place between those dates.



Logic would stay with the label for over a decade, with his final Def Jam release being Vinyl Days in June 2022. In order to satisfy his contract, the project was completed in just 12 days. The Visionary Music Group MC then departed the legendary Hip Hop company for a deal with BMG that allowed him to own his masters.


College Park, Logic's first independent release since leaving Def Jam, will be released on Friday (February 24). 


College Park, which was fully produced by Producers Lounge, will include 17 tracks, including the previously released "Wake Up," "Highlife," and "Insipio."
