Logic Names His Grammy Nomination as a Defining Moment Of 2018: Watch

Logic has had a whirlwind 2018, and he sat with Billboard to discuss some of his defining moments of the year, including selling out Madison Square Garden, his No. 1 album and more.

Bobby Tarantino II, released back in March, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. He was proud of such an accomplishment from a mixtape, and he noted a chart-topping mixtape is a goal "people strategize to achieve."

Not only was the rapper nominated for song of the year at the 2018 Grammy Awards, he also got to perform his mental health awareness anthem "1-800-273-8255" alongside Alessia Cara and Khalid at the ceremony. He recalled to Billboard a moment at the Grammys when he rushed to the bathroom during a commercial break and knocked DJ Khaled's phone, almost breaking it. "He pulled out another phone and was like, 'Another one!' Just kidding," he joked.

He even added an extra notable moment to his top five, revealing that he wrote a novel -- a psychological thriller about a guy who works at a supermarket. He aims to be the first "musician that’s an author who wrote a book then wrote a screenplay and will star in the movie and do the soundtrack," a feat he deemed "gangster shit."
