Sir Robert Bryson Hall II[a] (born January 22, 1990), known professionally as Logic, is an American YouTuber, streamer, author, retired rapper, songwriter, and record producer. As a musician, Logic released six studio albums and received two Grammy Award nominations.

Logic began his music career in 2010, releasing the mixtape Young, Broke & Infamous; he gained popularity with his Young Sinatra mixtape series, with the response to its third iteration, Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever (2013), helping Logic secure a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings. Logic's first two studio albums — Under Pressure (2014) and The Incredible True Story (2015) — both peaked within the top five on the U.S. Billboard 200 and were certified gold. Under Pressure subsequently was certified platinum in 2020.[4]

Logic achieved mainstream popularity in 2017 with Everybody; the album charted at number one in the United States and was certified platinum, while its lead single, "1-800-273-8255", reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and was a top-ten hit internationally.[5] He also released the commercial mixtape series Bobby Tarantino. His fourth and fifth albums, YSIV (2018) and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2019), achieved similar commercial success, with the latter containing the single "Homicide", which peaked at number five on the Hot 100.[6] Logic began a streaming career after releasing his final album, No Pressure, in 2020.[7][8]

As an author, Logic released a novel titled Supermarket (2019), which was accompanied by a soundtrack of the same name. The book became a New York Times Best Seller, but both works received generally mixed to negative critical reception.[9]
