Rap has changed and evolved since its birth in the late 1970s. It is a very popular genre in music where the rapper recites words rhythmically over a prerecorded instrumental backing. It had a start in the United States of America but since then has traveled around the world, creating rappers from many different backgrounds. The rapper we are here to talk about today, goes by the name of Logic, and just like the music genre, has changed for the worse and is now complete and utter garbage.
At his start Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, who goes by the stage name Logic, was very promising. However, that took a wild 180 degree turn. We’ll start with the most obvious. His lyrics are insanely corny and he tries too hard to appeal to everybody. Nowadays, rap has become increasingly materialistic and all the kids eat that stuff up, having dreams of their own of making it big and living a lavish life. On his recent album he brags about the stacks of money he has and his amazing, lavish life. However, on a different song he starts rapping about how money is not all that and is not needed to lead a happy life, appealing to both sides of the coin. This makes him come off as extremely fake and no one can take him serious for stuff like that if he is always contradicting himself.
Another reason for the large amount of hate he gets from a lot of people is that he often raps about him being biracial. He has a song called “Black Spiderman” where he says “I ain’t ashamed to be White/ I ain’t ashamed to be Black/ I ain’t ashamed of my beautiful Mexican wife as a matter of fact.” Logic is always trying to put that out there that he is biracial. He even changed his Twitter profile name to be Bobby Biracial.
Logic also has a childish view on the world and he thinks he is deeper than he actually is. He thinks by releasing one song he can completely change the world around for the better when in reality it probably just made a small scratch on a large problem. This naivety is increasingly annoying to see as he is probably only doing this to boost his ego. 1-800 has a nice message but it is just like the frog stuck in a deep well, looking up and thinking that’s the whole world. I’ve known people with depression and a shit song like that will not magically cure them of it. Plus it is very hard to take him serious when his voice is like that.
Don’t get it twisted though; I can respect Logic for some things. For one, he is a great freestyler. Not many rappers these days can step to Logic in a freestyle, or freestyle on their own for that matter. It is a lost art. He can also rap really quickly, but doing so and rapping about nonsense does not make one a good rapper.
Logic can do his own thing, release singles, EPs, albums and I could care less. He is a great person but the complete opposite as a rapper. I could see the attraction to him as an artist though but it just does not do it for me.
