"I have been through the things that can give me credibility," Logic told FADER earlier this year. "I have held guns and shot them, I have sold drugs, I have been around drugs being cooked, but fuck all that shit. It's not that [I was] trying to validate it but to express that as my story; when I did, [it] wasn't even accepted because of the way I may look, or whatever the case may be. When I let all that shit go, and was like, I'm an anime nerd—[a] sci-fi loving, film-going motherfucker—that completely changed how open I was as far as lyrical content, for sure."
The MC appeared on Fallon last night to perform "Fade Away" from his recently released The Incredible True Story. The Roots served as his backing band; at one point, Logic sat down in the crowd and kept rapping while he simultaneously attempted to solve a Rubik's cube. He ended his song on an upbeat note: "I want to thank all my fans for getting my album to No. 1 with a message of peace, love, and positivity." Then he did an impression of Seinfeld.
