Logic Accused of Pretending He Was In High School To Rip Off Non-Profit

By HHL JT

Logic doesn't come off as much of a finesser.

As you're about to learn, looks can be deceiving.

Logic's 2016 video for "Super Mario World" takes place partly on a boat. At the end of the video, the actor who portrays Mario in the visuals is seen telling the boat's owner that they are shooting the video as part of a high school project and asking her if they can film on the boat for a few minutes.

Apparently, that's exactly what happened in real life. 

Carolina Salguero operates the 90-year-old oil-tanker as non-profit, charging commercial entities for its use and allowing groups such as high school students to use it for free. When she does rent the boat for money she gives the profits to Hurricane Sandy relief.

“I looked at Logic; he’s so scrawny, I mistook for him as high school student,” Salguero told Indiewire. “I thought the videographer was his dad, graying hair at the temples, and his friend was dressed in the [beat-up] Super Mario costume – I was busy and trusted I was helping high school students.”

Once Salgeuro figured out that Logic was a famous rapper, and not a student from Glen Cove High School -- as he had represented himself as -- she reached out to his management and asked for the $5,000 she would usually charge for a video shoot.

They said they would work on getting her the money.  But they never did.

Neither Logic nor his people have responded to Salgeuro making her allegations public.
