Logic just dropped a new mixtape titled Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever, which pretty much made my day.
The dude from Maryland, whose birth name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, will soon be gracing the cover of XXL Magazine as part of their annual Freshman class. In my opinion this is well deserved: Young Sinatra has to be one of the smoothest up-and-coming lyricists in the game today. And now with his fourth mixtape in as many years, it's obvious this gent knows what he's doing in this rap game.
I'm hesitant to say that this is his best mixtape yet, as 2012's Young Sinatra: Undeniable was extremely dope. The new one needs to marinate a bit more, but I will stamp it as a must download in the meantime.
The highlight for me is "Young Jedi," which has some superb flow, and is graced with a wavy verse from Las Vegas rapper and fellow '13 XXL Freshman Dizzy Wright. Other stand-outs are "The End" which has a nice Adele/Skyfall sample, and "On The Low" which features a couple well-known cats in Kid Ink (an XXL Freshman class alum) and Trinidad James (that all gold everything dude and fellow '13 Freshman classmate). There are 20 songs on Welcome to Forever; plenty to feast on.
