On Friday night, Logic returned to New York for the first time since performing at Madison Square Garden in summer of 2018. This time at Barclays Center in Brooklyn amid his Confessions of a Dangerous Mind Tour, the “Homicide” rapper brought YBN Cordae and Dreamville artist J.I.D. along for the ride.
From the very beginning of the show, it was very apparent that Logic had hand-picked YBN and J.I.D. to open on this tour – both artists are extremely lyrical and undeniably talented. Neither used a vocal backtrack, instead rapping only with the instrumental – a sign that they had nothing to hide and that they were capable of handling their own on stage. There was no room for error, and both artists delivered.
A lof of the time with openers on a stadium tour, you find they are given the stage but not the liberty to bring their own setup with them. This wasn’t the case on Friday night. Logic allowed both YBN Cordae and J.I.D. to set the tone during their sets with props and visuals that made it not just feel like a Logic concert with openers, but a fully-conceived concert from each successive act.
For his own set, Logic pulls out all the stops. His energy is unmatched to any act I’ve seen, as he operates at 120% at all times. So much so, in fact, that he performed Homicide and paused/restarted the song three separate times because the crowd wasn’t hype enough. Logic truly cares about each aspect of the show, and his fans’ involvement is clearly number one on the list.
