During an interview with Montreality, Logic revealed that Drake is one of his major influences. When asked what’d he’d say if Drizzy was watching the interview, the “1-800-273-8255” mastermind revealed that he would say, “thank you.”

He expanded: “So many rappers out here. I wanna be real, they wanna act however, act cool this and that and use somebody just to get over but you’ve been really nice to me so far. I just appreciate the love so I wanna thank you for paving the way for me and now I’m paving the way for youngins under me.”

“Your music has taught me so much,” he added. “When I thought I just wanna be this rapper rapping all the time, you said ‘nah you can rap, you can spit those bars, and you can sing, and you can be yourself.’ So honestly I don’t think I’ve ever gotten the chance to say this dude, if you see this Drake, thank you for paving the way for me to be the best me I can be. I appreciate that.”

In addition to words of praise for Drake, Logic also spoke about his friendship with Joey Badass, rap music’s generational gap and the topic of suicide. Watch the full interview above.
