Drake paved the way for Logic. According to Billboard:

“I wanna thank you for paving the way for me man, because now I’m paving the way for youngins under me," Logic begins. "Your music has taught me so much, when I thought I needed to be this rapper just rapping all the time. You said, 'Nah, you can rap, you can spit those bars, AND you can sing, AND you can be yourself.' I don’t think I’ve ever gotten the chance to say this, if you see this Drake, thank you for paving the way for me to be the best me that I can be.”

Logic has been praised for his deep and socially conscious lyrics. LA TimesMakeda Easter wrote: 

Still, despite the trappings of mainstream success, he describes himself as a nerdy rapper whose mantra is “peace, love and positivity.” If one wants evidence of his geekiness, it should be noted that he can rap while solving a Rubik’s Cube, which he has done onstage.

Logic teamed up with Khalid and Alessia Cara for "1-800-273-8255," an anthem about suicide prevention. The smash is a strong example of socially conscious messaging. "1-800-273-8255" peaked within the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 and scored a Grammy nod for Song of the Year.

Drake did pave the way for Logic—by simply being himself. Drake is no stranger to taking on deep, personal subject matters in his songs, dubbing him an "emo rapper." But he's also crossed over into afrobeat, reggae, trap and pop. He does it all and he does it big. Like he said, he "started from the bottom and now he's here." 

Watch the music video to "Started From The Bottom" below.
