louis logic splashed onto the Indie Rap scene “party foul” style in 1999 with the drinker’s anthem “Factotum”. He spawned a laundry list of collaborations with artists like Jedi Mind Tricks, MF DOOM and Malik B of the Roots, establishing himself as a beer soaked braggadocio Rap hero. In 2003, Louis surprised audiences with the release of the highly critically acclaimed Indie Hip Hop classic Sin-A-Matic, a concept record that cemented him in listeners’ minds as a standard for dark romantic comedy and shock Rap. He took a somewhat bizarre turn following his debut with 2004’s The Odd Couple Alcohol/Ism, a collaborative effort with his college classmate, Jay Love, that sophomorically celebrated drinking, drugs and sex. Louis’ curious trajectory and taste for musical exploration grew increasingly unpredictable on Misery Loves Comedy (2006), the album on which he officially partnered with longtime mainstay producer and underground production impresario J.J. Brown. This was his most mature record to date, showcasing a new talent for genuine singing and a more grown up application of his romantic adult humor.
