Logic suffered a mental breakdown at Thrival Innovation and Music Festival in Swissvale, Pennsylvania last night.
The DMV rapper began crying on stage and had to walk off. While he considered ending his set, he was able to fight through it and return.
He Tweeted about the incident after the show.
Tonight mid way thru my set I broke down. I walked off stage and felt like I was gonna pass out because I work so hard.— Bobby Tarantino (@Logic301) September 30, 2017
I contemplated ending the show. But I didn't. I walked back out there and I told the crowd exactly how I felt. And I persisted.— Bobby Tarantino (@Logic301) September 30, 2017
I work so so hard but I feel like o don't because so many opportunities come my way I'm scared to turn them down in fear they may never— Bobby Tarantino (@Logic301) September 30, 2017
Come back to me. And during a song I broke down in tears because I'm tired but I'm so happy I have the support of my friends and my fans!— Bobby Tarantino (@Logic301) September 30, 2017
I'm constantly thinking about others but I need to think about myself. I'm super blessed but I'm working so much im not enjoying my work— Bobby Tarantino (@Logic301) September 30, 2017

Logic spoke on his crippling anxiety in an interview with Tavis Smalley earlier this year:
“I’ll never forget, literally constantly working, no time to myself, and I was standing in line, it was 2015, and I was standing in line to see Star Wars, it was December, with my wife in Hollywood, downtown. And I start having this crazy physical feeling like I was going to faint. And I’d never really had this feeling before. I felt like my soul was leaving my body. I was freaking out, I felt like I needed to throw up, and low and behold, I ended up finding myself in a hospital bed momentarily later. I didn’t know what was going on, and the doctor tells me it was anxiety.” I was beginning to feel something called derealization,” he continued. “Now derealization is the sense of being out one’s body all the time. What I’ve later come to realize is that’s hyper-analyzation of reality in real time. What that means is that you’re over analyzing ever moment you perceive in real time.”
