Logic Accused Of Posing As High Schooler To Scam Nonprofit Out Of Video Money

New York, NY – Logic and his teamhave been accused failing to pay a non-prit for filming at its location in his “Super Mario World” video,according to IndieWire.

PortSide New York founderCarolina Salguero said she agreed to allow Logic to use the Mary A. Whalen, a 90-year-old oil tanker located in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood,for free because she was told it was for a school project.

I looked at Logic; hes so scrawny, I mistook for him as a] high school student,Salguerotold 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.

As long as they creditedMary A. Whalen,the boat was good for their use.

The video was released in the summer 2016 and upon seeing the video, Salguero realized Logic was a then 26-year-old rap artist signed to Def Jam. At that point, she asked for a $5,000 donation. Logic’s manager, Harrison Remler Team Visionary, allegedly told herDef Jam’s fices were closed in December 2016, and they would address the fee in the new year.

“We are confident we can get some funds your way, Remler reportedly said email.

Over ayear later, PortSide New York and Salguero have yet to see those funds.

I really just want to put this behind me, Salguero said. The way our Red Hook community got through Sandy was remaining positive and for whatever reason I just cant shake and I should, I know how violated I continue to feel by this.
