A hip-hop game changer: How Grammy-nominated Tyler, the Creator became Tyler, the entrepreneur

A hip-hop game changer: How Grammy-nominated Tyler, the Creator became Tyler, the entrepreneur | T H A T S * I T C R A Y ! | Scoop.it
The 26-year-old musician has ventured into TV, fashion and soon, film and furniture design. And he's just warming up.
sh333zy's insight:
Already, though, he’s not doing so bad. And he’s become friends with many of his childhood heroes and hip-hop peers. “Any time I need advice, I'll hit up Jay [Z] or Pharrell or Kanye or Frank [Ocean]. Just soaking in any advice that I can, so I don't make any mistakes they may have made.”

But his most memorable advice came from a fan.

 “This kid told me years ago, ‘You’ll make it like pickles.’ At first I didn’t get it. But then the kid explained: ‘People think you’re weird now . . . But in the future, you’re going to be like pickles, where they automatically just put you on burgers.’ I think it’s starting to get to that point, especially because the album I made — which, we’re talking about modern rap — it’s kind of left field for what people are used to. The fact that I got nominated for a Grammy, that’s kind of crazy.

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness: A Conversation With Lana Del Rey

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness: A Conversation With Lana Del Rey | T H A T S * I T C R A Y ! | Scoop.it
On the eve of her fourth album, the pagan pop star sounds more content than ever. How did she get there?
sh333zy's insight:
Have you noticed that all songs on the radio are bummers now? That Lil Uzi Vert lyric—“All my friends are dead”—sounds almost like a Lana lyric.

There’s been a major sonic shift culturally. I think I had a lot to do with that. I do. I hear a lot of music that sounds like those early records. It would be weird to say that it didn’t. I remember seven years ago I was trying to get a record deal, and people were like, “Are you kidding? These tunes? There’s zero market for this.” There was just such a long time where people had to fit into that pop box.

How Metro Boomin Became The Most Trusted Guy In Rap

How Metro Boomin Became The Most Trusted Guy In Rap | T H A T S * I T C R A Y ! | Scoop.it
Metro Boomin has been climbing rap’s ranks since high school. In a competitive and fickle industry, how did he become the guy everyone wants on their team?
sh333zy's insight:
ソニー・デジタルの家はアトランタのトキワ荘。

He was just an 18-year-old freshman when his Future collaboration “Karate Chop” became a surprise hit. And he was spending as much time in class as he was at fellow producer Sonny Digital’s house. Sonny’s place, 516 North Ave., was a makeshift studio/crash-spot for any number of Atlanta’s current bumper crop of talent: Migos, Rae Sremmurd, and ILoveMakonnen all used to hang out and record there before their songs charted.

I am Logic, ask me anything

sh333zy's insight:

[–]thedukeofjohn

I just want to let you know how much your music has impacted me. I suffer from bipolar disorder and there are days when I give up. My whole brain just shuts down and life becomes impossible. Listening to your music helps me get out of those funks. I am able to be myself more often, because of what you do. Thank you.

[–]Logic301_Logic[S]

my mother suffered from this. in the darkest of times remember those who love you, no matter how angry or tired you get just remember they LOVE you!

[–]flynt3 

How do you stay positive and motivated? Do you have bad tendencies you try to keep in check?

 

[–]Logic301_Logic[S]

i still smoke, its unfortunate but it is my only vice, i am not ashamed, i am human. liquor is a poison but more accepted lol. we all have demons, i just dont hide mine like most.

-------------------


[–]Evansha03

Hey Logic, massive fan from way back in your mixtape days! My favourite has to be Young Sinatra undeniable but anyways I'm from the UK (Leeds) and I'm wondering will you be touring over here any time soon, would love to see you live. Also another question, as we have all heard how your childhood inspired most of your songs, do you think you would have made it as a rapper if you didn't go through the tough times you did? Lots of love man keep up the sick work!!

 

[–]Logic301_Logic[S]

i think if i had a different life i would have went to college, followed the norm and died happy with children but never really reached for my dreams

-------------------


[–]Trebreh89

Wassup Logic use to dismiss your music based on you're appearance then i heard you spit and read up on you're up bringing now i find you relatable and kind inspirational i got 3 questions

Do feel like you're appearance is sort of a Trojan horse of sorts?

Do you consider it a gift or curse

Also have you quit smoking cigarettes? if so how?

 

[–]Logic301_Logic[S] 

first i appreciate you opening your mind. please continue to live your life this way. discrediting someones ability to do anything in life let alone rap based on there appearance is no different than a white man forbidding a man of color from taking a sip of water from the fountain.

as far as my race im just me man i dont think about the extra shit. im black and white. i prefer the term ultra light skinned lolol JK and i have a battle with nikki that cunt

------------------- 
 

[–]TroyHOfficial

Yo 301! Big fan and love all your music. TITS you say is the album that changed everything, and you say in interviews that you slept at your homies house to get back on your feet. What was your motivation to keep you rapping even when all of this was going down?

 

[–]Logic301_Logic[S] 

if i didnt make it i most likely would have been dead or in jail. thats what kept me going, to break the cycle

------------------- 

 

[–]GrabTheBleach 

What made you realize that you wanted to create music?

 

[–]Logic301_Logic[S]

it was the only realistic thing i could do to not be poor anymore
