Logic is the First Rapper to Have a Novel Go No. 1 on the New York Times Best-Seller List

Is the movie coming next?

Logic’s novel, Supermarket, debuted number one on the The New York Times’ Paperback Trade Fiction Best Sellers list. It’s a remarkable achievement: According to Pitchfork, Logic is the first rapper to have a novel go number one on a New York Times Best Seller list. (Sorry, 50 Cent.)

Supermarket, which was published by powerhouse Simon & Schuster, is the story of a depressed young man named Flynn working in a supermarket in a rural town. Flynn’s life is turned upside down when the supermarket becomes a crime scene.

Apparently, the book is bad.
