The Minnesota State Fair killed it with their grandstand line-up for this year and one of those outstanding shows will be on Thursday, August 29th when Logic takes over!
Logic – the 29-year-old GRAMMY®-nominated (Song Of The Year and Best Music Video) rapper born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II – burst onto the music scene through a series of mixtapes that led to a significant, rabid underground fan base. “1-800-273-8255,” the six-time-Platinum single off Everybody, which spotlights mental health and suicide prevention awareness, has become Logic’s highest charting single to date. Referencing the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number, the song created a cultural moment globally, affecting the lives of thousands. Logic has sold 650,000 tickets to date, which includes sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden and The Forum in Los Angeles. 2019 is shaping up to be Logic’s biggest year yet. His first novel Supermarket debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times Best Seller list and has sold more than 150,000 copies to date. With one of his most recent releases “Keanu Reeves” garnering close to 50 million streams in less than 3 weeks, there is no sign of slowing down.
Local hero Prof will be opening up the show. Minnesota hip-hop artist Prof spent the early part of the 2010s amassing a strong loyal following and distributing nearly 200,000 records through his own imprint, Stophouse, before signing to Rhymesayers Entertainment in 2013, which helped propel him to the next stage of his career. He is best known for his show-stopping live performances and his annual self-headlined Prof Outdoors festival has repeatedly sold out at 4,000+ for years. Prof’s undeterred, unwavering commitment to his mission has revealed a detailed craftsmanship behind the perceived chaos of the eccentric Minneapolis MC. Today, as his latest album title states, the newly sophisticated Prof is more accurately referred to as Pookie Baby.
