Logic Lets Us Down with a 1 Track Album

The first time this gifted lyricist crossed my radar was around 2014 when I was having a discussion with a group of friends in a music studio. I was the only enthusiast in the room, and we were 8; the remaining guys included 3 rappers, 2 producers, 1 singer, and 1 instrumentalist. We were just having a next lyricist type of discussion and someone name-dropped him in that discussion. I never bothered to give him a listen, as he didn’t reach my radar again asides from that word of mouth. Fast forward to August 2018, Eminem releases Kamikaze, his 10th album, one of the most controversial and successful albums of that year had Eminem given Logic a shout out on there on track 11 “Fall.” When I was done with the album on continuous repeat, I decided to lend a ear to the other artistes Eminem gave his respect to on that track, one of them being Logic, others being Joyner Lucas and Hopsin; the rappers I hadn’t listened to until he gave them the shout out. So I proceeded to download all of Logic’s previous projects (Albums and Mixtapes); Under Pressure, The incredible True Story, Bobby Tarantino, Everybody, and Young Sinatra IV (YSIV). I got hooked on him as well because I have a soft spot for lyricists and he is a great lyricist. Although he may have songs that are boring and just average, I shouldn’t ignore the fact that he also has great songs as well. The one that stuck with me are the “44 Bars”, “44 More”, “Wu Tang Forever” where he featured the (Wu-Tang Clan (Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA, Method Man, Inspectach Deck, Cappadonna, Jackpot Scotty Wotty, U-God, Masta Killa, & GZA), and “ICONIC” with Jaden Smith. From then on, I kept in tune with him while he released Supermarket, and now Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. I never really kept in touch with this album as I was somewhat disappointed or rather, wasn’t really wowed by the album as I felt he wasn’t a good enough singer for him to take up that alternative music challenge in Supermarket, thus, I wasn’t aware of his 2 previous singles “Keanu Reeves” and “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” until his track “Homicide” which he featured Eminem was released on May 3rd 2019.

Logic’s Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, A Noteworthy Attempt but Not His Best Album

The hunger present in a rising artist prior to reaching levels of notoriety and worldwide acclaim proves to be some of their most iconic moments. However, once the taste of numerical applause hits the tip of some artist’s tongues, that hunger almost turns into an obnoxious greed amid a whining banter of what they now deserve. Logic’s fifth studio album Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, laced with 16 tracks amid features from Eminem, G-Eazy, Will Smith and more brims with a pity-party like soirée invitation amidst some cocky, noteworthy jams but does it ooze with top-album appeal? For me, no it doesn’t. His earlier works like Everybody and Bobby Tarantino II hearken with a more effortless approach. This particular album listens like he’s got something to prove yet at the same time his demeanor appears perfunctory. Although the album topped Billboard charts and earned him his third career No. 1 project with 80,000 album units sold amid 24,000 of those accounting for album sales alone; this album still doesn’t give off the same life as his previous works. I feel his energy but I also feel his frustration with the music industry as well. Logic’s no novice to the industry with close to a decade of time put in, if you can believe it, and it’s that time served that either sours you to the industry or increases your hunger for more people to hear your music. More people are hearing Logic’s music but are they listening? I can appreciate his current creativity without loving the execution in this particular album.
