Logic Turned Down $1.5 Million Dollar Deal When He First Started

Most artist dream about signing their first major deal. Logic on the other hand turned down plenty offers before signing with Def Jam.

The “Everybody” rapper and his manager Chris Zarou  stopped by the NPR podcast How I Built This With Guy Raz to discuss how they broke into industry.

“We were still shopping ourselves, we wanted a deal,” Logic explained. “There was even independent companies that put a contract for $1.5 million dollars in our hands. … We turned it down like it was nothing.”

Zarou spoke about how he tried to get multiple internships to get Logic on.

“I applied for internships, at almost every record label,” Zarou said. “I actually got one interview…and I thought it went great and ultimately they said, ‘Sorry this isn’t gonna work.'”

He added: “I actually printed [the email] out recently and I’m getting it framed for the office. … It was Def Jam, which is ultimately where Logic signed to probably a little over a year after that.”
