Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, known by his stage name Logic, is an American rapper and record producer. Many people know him for his popular song titled, “1-800-273-8255” also known as the “suicide hotline number”. Logic was born and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland to a black father and a white mother and was raised in a not-so-good area. The area he grew up in was filled with bad influences and it was a very poor area. He grew up seeing his family fall into drug and alcohol addiction. At the age of 13, Logic met Solomon Taylor, who would soon become his mentor. Instead of falling into drugs and alcohol, Logic started rapping and found that he enjoyed it very much. He began his career with the name title “Psychological,” but then switched to Logic after his friend started calling him Logic. Logic came out with his debut mix-tape titled “Young, Broke, & Infamous” in 2010. His first couple years of rapping were known as his “Young Sinatra era”. In 2014, he came out with his first album titled “Under Pressure.” In this album he talked much about his family life and his childhood. After this he came out with “The Incredible True Story” in 2015 and “Bobby Tarantino” in 2016. At this time Logic started to gain much publicity. On May 5, 2017 Logic came out with his third album, “Everybody.” This album included the song “1-800-273-8255” and mainly talked about equality throughout album. Over the years Logic has changed his music style very much. He first started with only rapping but then moved to rapping and singing. Even though his music style changed his motto has always stayed the same, he always promotes peace, love, and positivity
