Logic took to Twitter tonight to reveal the release of his surprise new mixtape called Bobby Tarantino. The tape includes the songs "Flexicution" and "Wrist" with Pusha T, both of which have been getting big buzz online. "Flexicution" has racked up over seven million streams since it dropped two weeks ago. Logic and 6ix handle all the production on the tape's 11 tracks. Back in April, he revealed to Rolling Stone that he was working on two albums at the same time. Although Bobby Tarantino is a mixtape, it's certainly possible that this was one of the projects he was referring to.
This is Logic's first release since he dropped his sophomore album The Incredible True Story back in November of last year. The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, tallying up over 135,000 units in its first week, and was met with a generally positive reaction from fans and critics. He was also named by Forbes as one of hip-hop's "Cash Princes" back in February, noting the huge year he had in 2015.
Bobby Tarantino comes as Logic is about to embark on his Endless Summer tour, which he is co-headlining with G-Eazy. YG and Yo Gotti will also accompany them on the tour, which is set to hit 25 cities across North America this July and August. It's Logic's second tour of the year, following his Incredible World tour that started back in February.
