In a First, Rapper Logic Tops the New York Times Best Seller List04.04.2019
The rapper Bobby Hall, better known as Logic, published his debut novel "Supermarket" on March 26. The psychological thriller shot straight to No. 1 on the prestigious New York Times Best Sellers List in the Paperback Trade Fiction category.
The Grammy-nominated musicians, who released his latest album YSIV to critical and popular acclaim just last year, surprised his fans with a wholly new and unexpected project. Written over the past four years, "Supermarket" tells the story of beginner writer Flynn, who lands a job at a grocery store following a difficult breakup. In the novel, the author writes about living with bipolar disorder (which the rapper’s mother suffers from), as well as struggles with depression and anxiety.
The 29-year-old rapper also released a soundtrack for the novel, including, among other performances, the single Probably Gonna Rock Your World, featuring an appearance from Mac DeMarco.
"Supermarket" marks the first time in history that a rapper-penned books has reached the top spot of the prestigious New York Times Best Seller list. Logic shared news of his debut’s success on his Instagram profile.
