After he declared his plans to retire from hip-hop, Logic’s last album, No Pressure, was released in 2020 and was labeled as his final album. Logic’s retirement was brief, as the next year he reappeared with fresh music. He released a number of singles in 2021, including “Tired In Malibu,” “No Vaccine,” and “My Way,” as well as three songs with Madlib as the rapper-producer combo MadGic. Without further ado, we can confidently state that Logic has returned to action, and for his first move in 2022, the rapper made a surprise announcement to those looking for new music this year.
Logic shared what he’s been working on so far this year in an Instagram post. He captioned the video, “I’m working on a new album called Vinyl Days.” Logic is working on a beat in the video. As he removes the microphone from its case, he announces, “This is JAY-microphone,” Z’s to begin the video. “I don’t have any identification.” Logic then uses his mouth to record sound effects before adding them to the beat as it plays. In the video, his longtime producer 6ix appears beside him.
In a later post, Logic also revealed a snippet of the title tune from “Vinyl Days.” To begin the sample, Logic raps, “From dawn to dusk.” “‘What’s up, my man?’ shouted Mac Demarco. I need some raw sh*t.” It’s unclear when Logic will release Vinyl Days, but it appears from the excerpt that the CD will sound like one of his early Young Sinatra mixtapes.
