Logic’s Work Ethic

One thing that draws me to Logic’s music is his motivating aura. Here are a couple lyrics and quotes by him that stand out to me.

“Open your mind; this is work ethic. 99% of you couldn’t comprehend the method.” (The Come Up)

“I work 12 hours a day every day with no distraction. 7 days a week, and 12 hours, that’s a lazy day. Going 72 hours with no sleep, call that a crazy day.” (Set The Tone)

“They said I couldn’t do it, back when I was broke going through it till I got a deal; they’re talking ’bout I knew it. But you weren’t there in the beginning, nowhere to be found when I was down, but you show up when I’m winning. Left me to drown; now I’m swimming. I do it ’cause I love this shit.” (Man of the Year)

“Until I quit my job, then my work ethic increased, elevated to levels I ain’t ever seen.” (Walk on By)

“Will I make it? I don’t know. From the bottom of my heart, I swear to God I gotta blow. This is for every time the world told me no. If I don’t make it in this game, I have nowhere else to go…I gotta make it. And if they don’t give me what I deserve, then I’mma take it. I’ve been underrated, underestimated, and hated. I can’t wait to look back and say that I made it. Nowadays, everyone’s a rapper and I hate it.” (Just Another Day)

From an article: People say, ‘What would you do if you didn’t do this?’ And to be quite honest, I’d be dead or in jail or I’d be a drug addict,” he says. “That’s what was laid out for me, period, unfortunately. I used to have nothing to lose, so that’s why I would go as hard as I did — because I had nothing to lose and I had everything to gain.” (source)
