Logic Demands Def Jam ‘Pay My Friends and Musicians’ Who Worked on ‘No Pressure’

Logic is publicly expressing his frustration with his record label, Def Jam Recordings, over alleged unpaid fees to his collaborators.

“@defjam can you please pay my friends and musicians that have made my albums great this is ridiculous at this point!” Logic wrote in a lengthy note on Instagram, where he shared a screenshot of a personal text message Saturday night (Oct. 3). “I shouldn’t be getting calls from close friends of mine in the middle of dinner with my Wife about how YOU haven’t paid them from the budget you’ve given me for this album.”

The rapper went on to list several people he claims have contacted him about not receiving payment for their work with him, including producer 6ix, musicians Kevin Randolph and Lil Keke, and DJ Rhetorik.
