NEWARTHILL rapper Logik has signed a record deal.
The musician, aka Kyle Burns, has signed up with Falcon Records after impressing label bosses.
The Times & Speaker reported back in February that the 17-year-old’s star was rising.
Since then, he has taken part in a UK tour, struck a deal with a professional management team and even attracted a sponsorship deal with a clothes company.
He said: “Well, I’ve been on the move a lot this year.
“I was in Manchester to perform at the o2 Academy as part of a UK tour movement Big On Road. I performed alongside artists such as Don Jaga, Kapital KO, D-Millz, No Lay and K-Koke, who has just signed with Jay-Z’s Sony RCA Roc-Nation Label.
“Just being in their presence was good enough for me, but nonetheless I shut the Academy down Logik style, hitting them with two new exclusives from my album, Music Is My Hustle.
“You can purchase Music Is My Hustle on iTunes. It features artists such as female MC One-Da-Full from Manchester, Caine Marko from London, Drama B from New York and many more.
“I have also signed with Bady Management from London. Bady, the owner, had been watching my movements for the past seven or eight months.
“Late June, the talks started between myself and Bady. From the start I could see things were looking good about the deal, as he previously had managed UK rapper Wretch 32, and then pushed him on to bigger management when he signed his major record deal.
“In July, the deal was finalised. Bady has got to work real fast and got my UK tour planned already.
“The Music Is My Hustle Tour will start in Glasgow at the King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut on August 23.
“I will be reaching towns and cities such as Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Essex, Leeds, Fife, Brighton and finishing off, hopefully, in Motherwell.
“I’m also playing at the Weston Super Mare beach race festival on October 13 and Ivory Blacks in Glasgow on October 26.”
He added: “Last but not least, I have signed a contract with a clothing sponsor named COMO (Class Of My Own) Clothing. They basically give me free clothes to wear in my music videos, on stage and in photoshoots.”
