The Grammy-nominated artist describes Donna as 'the crypt keeper from Tales from the Crypt but with a Van Halen hairstyle'
Rapper Logic is all set to drop his memoir called ‘This Bright Future’ on September 7 under his legal name Bobby Hall. The ‘Bobby Tarantino’ hitmaker had first announced his memoir in May 2021. Now, taking to his official Twitter and Instagram pages respectively, the hip-hop artist shared a few shocking details revealing how he faced sexual abuse when he was nine years old.
The 31-year-old rapper shared an audio clip that details his sexual abuse incident involving his father’s girlfriend Donna. The Grammy-nominated artist describes Donna as “the crypt keeper from Tales from the Crypt but with a Van Halen hairstyle.” Logic had retired from music in 2020 only to make a comeback with a single called ‘Intro’ in June 2021.

Was Logic sexually abused as a kid?
Shedding light on the horrific incident from his childhood, Logic labeled Donna as a drug addict and alcoholic. He added that he was having Skittles in the laundry room at his father’s home with Donna when the incident took place. “I don’t remember exactly how it happened but she was definitely drunk and she walked over to me and she took some of my Skittles.”
He continued, “She put them in her mouth and she said, ‘Hey, come here.’ So I walked over to her and she leaned down and she passed the Skittles from her mouth to my mouth, which then turned into her tongue-kissing me.” The rapper revealed, “It was more than one Skittle—I could really taste the rainbow and the cigarettes and the ginger ale and the lipstick, like all of it at the same time.”
‘It was wrong and creepy and weird’
After sharing the incident, Logic confessed that as he looks back on his sexual abuse, it was obviously wrong but as a kid, it felt “awesome”. “I look back as an adult and obviously it was wrong and creepy and weird, but I won’t lie. As a kid, I was like, ‘Awesome! Nice!’ which is this weird double-standard we live with where if any man does anything, it’s abuse” adding, “but if it’s some hot lady teacher, it’s somehow not as bad, even though it is.”
Logic while announcing his first memoir in May 2021 had shared a Twitter post where he spoke about how excited he was for this one. “Excited to announce that my memoir, This Bright Future, is available for pre-order. This is the story of everything I've gone through and it's been a beautiful and difficult journey to relive. There's honestly so much that I've never been able to express in the music and the interviews that followed. I'm so happy and proud to finally give my fans and the rest of the world my entire story. The way I never could with my music!"
