Illogic began in the Columbus, Ohio hip hop scene when at the young age of 16 he claimed the 1996 Columbus Hip Hop Expo MC battle, surrounded by what would come to be the core of the emerging “bustown” sound. He released his debut in 1998 on Weightless Recordings, “Unforeseen Shadows”. The release was a landmark show featuring Cannibal Ox, Aesop Rock, RJD2, Blueprint, Mhz (Camu Tao & Copywrite), and Atoms Family.

Years later Illogic has shared the stage with Rakim, Casual, Psalm One, Atmosphere, Eyedea, Brother Ali, The Roots, Common, One Be Lo, Modill, Royce Da 5’9′, and many other nationally recognized acts. His diligence in the studio is nearly unmatched, unleashing 13 solo studio albums and ep’s  as well as 3 releases as part of Greenhouse with long time friend, producer and collaborator Blueprint over the span of his 17 year career. This includes his latest relese with famed friend and producer blockhead, Capture the Sun on Man Bite Dog Records.

At this time in his career Illogic has started to look at the use of different mediums to express himself and get his thoughts out to his fans. He is in the process of writing 2 books as well as working on multiple musical projects looking to be released over the next 2 years.
