The start to 2023 has been eventful for Logic. In the first few days of the year he made a big splash with two major headlines. On Jan. 1, his wife Brittney Hall announced that they were expecting a second child. Two days later (Jan. 3) on a video call, he confirmed that he had recorded an entire album over J Dilla beats. However, he followed that up by saying he decided against releasing it, and would instead rather Boldy James release his upcoming project Drug Dilla, which sees him rap over mostly Dilla beats.
On Jan. 9, Logic then announced a brand new studio album titled College Park. He accompanied this announcement with a neat anime inspired trailer. Logic would later confirm the release date of the album for February 24. A few days removed from the College Park trailer, the Maryland rapper put out its first promotional single titled “Wake Up” on Jan. 13. The track features Lucy Rose, who Logic collaborated with three times prior on “Intermission,” “Anxiety” and Thank You.” In the following weeks, he would drop his second and third singles “Highlife” (Jan. 30), which came with a music video, and “Paradise II” (Feb. 6).
Logic Joined By Big Names
It seemed like all there was left to do for College Park was finalize the official trackless. Logic did just that on Thursday (Feb. 9). The album will contain 17 tracks and include a whopping 15 feature guests, with two of them having multiple appearances throughout. Eye-opening names like RZA, Joey Bada$$, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, Statik Selektah and Redman are the most notable of the bunch. Additionally, longtime collaborators like the aforementioned Lucy Rose and Big Lenbo will also be featured.
Along with College Park, Logic recently announced that he would be executively producing Juicy J’s next album. While the details are still scarce regarding the project, Logic and Juicy have built quite a friendship. In the last few years, they have worked on songs together like “1995,” “Ink Blot” and “Twisted.” Also, Logic’s voiced is used in Juicy’s producer tag. Logic has a lot on his slate coming up, but surely the most important will be College Park. Just a couple more weeks away from its release, it appears that some of hip-hop’s stars will be joining along for the 33-year-old’s eighth studio album.
