Logic Career and Net Worth
In 2009, Logic started his career in the music industry. Initially, his stage name was “Psychological” and his first unofficial mixtape was titled “Psychological – Logic: The Mixtape”. In an interview, he said that the name Psychological was “one name that really stuck [with me]. I just loved this word because it was about the mind and I knew that’s what I wanted my music to consist of; something that really challenges the mind”. After his first mixtape was released, he started to perform the opening acts for singing stars such as EPMD, Pitbull, Redman, Method Man and Ludacris. During the time, he shortened his stage name to Logic.
The following year, Logic released his first official mixtape which was titled “Young, Broke & Infamous”. The mixtape was a success an received a lot of positive reviews. The mixtape also established Logic as a budding rapper. After the success of the mixtape, he was signed by the independent label “Visionary Music Group”. After being signed, he said in an interview “Visionary Music Group is like Roc-A-Fella. Damon Dash, that’s like Chris Zarou of Visionary Music Group, I like to see myself as a Jay. In no way am I arrogant or cocky, I have to see it in order to do it. They did it independently and when they signed with a major, they did it the way that they wanted to do it”.
In 2011, Logic released his third mixtape with the title “Young Sinatra” and was critically acclaimed by various publications. The music video for the song “All I Do” was later released on YouTube which gained over a million views in the first week. The mixtape was the first installment of his “Young Sinatra” trilogy. The following year, he released the second installment titled “Young Sinatra: Undeniable”. In this mixtape, the songs were more personal with lyrics based on his experience with school expulsion, his mother getting stabbed and his father’s drug addictions. When asked about the mixtape, he said “Fans tend to think that if you fall in love with an artist because he makes this kind of sound [but if he gets] bigger and he grows and [his sound changes, people also think he changes]. But with me, I created all types of sounds from the get-go, so you can never say I’m changing.”
After the release of the mixtape, Logic went on his first headlining tour “The Visionary Music Group Tour”. In 2013, Logic released the third installment of his trilogy “Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever”. The album was promoted with a two months long headlining tour “Welcome to Forever Tour”. The mixtape was downloaded over 700,000 times online and was highly praised by both fans as well as the critics. In the same year, he signed a contract with the Def Jam Recordings and started recording his debut album. In an interview, he stated “I’m excited to take this next step in my career. It’s incredible for Def Jam [Records] and Visionary Music Group to work together, and the opportunity to collaborate [with No I.D.] is priceless. I’m very humbled to be a part of the most iconic hip-hop label of all time.”

The two have been married for three years and are still going strong. The two are always spotted happily together and laughing. Jessica has also been featured in Logic’s music video for the song “Flexucution”.
In an interview, when asked about their marriage, Jessica said, “Well, I had heard the name Robert Cowles bandied around many times before I actually met him. And when I did, I definitely appreciated his face, but can’t say I was overwhelmingly drawn to him! After a few more times hanging out with him at various events, I vowed that I would never ‘fall’ for him because I thought he was a bit too arrogant for my liking.” “Six months later, and I found myself with strong feelings for this guy! After a three week holiday in France, Rob returned home and asked what I thought about him being my boyfriend. And three and a half years later, it was clear that a life spent without each other would pretty much be B-grade. And then he proposed!”
However, following two years of marriage, Logic and his wife Jessica Andrea have reportedly called it a quit. They split up in April 2018. It seemed like their relationship was going strong until December 2017, when Logic surprised Andrea with a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and then in January, when Andrea accompanied the rapper to the Grammys, where he was nominated and performed.
