Nevertheless, this guy matters. He has built up a legit following, and he's on a major label and thus must be reckoned with. This is particularly true given the context of Baltimore hip-hop, which remains largely under-the-radar, however much buzz it might be making on the streets. What does it mean for a rapper, one from Gaithersburg of all places, to get the support of Def Jam? Is it at least in part because he seems so willing to leave all of the more interesting specifics of his story behind to do a B-minus J. Cole impression? How do big street personalities like Lor Scoota and Young Moose, who have found stylistically unique voices within the rote blueprint of trap, or emotive rappers like DDm, who can rap his ass off but is inexorably grounded within his unique point of view, make it if this is how you "get on" in 2014? Indeed, for the embattled, oft-ignored, eccentric-filled world of Baltimore hip-hop, Logic's success is a confounding inspiration. If you lack a distinct personality, or at least are willing to sacrifice your quirks and specificity to sound like everybody else, then Def Jam will certainly come knocking.
