‘Bobby Tarantino ll’ Has Arrived… And it’s Mixtape Logic [PHOTO]
Logic is back at it again.
Grammy- nominated rapper, Logic, has been the artist to watch lately, with his string of releases like “Overnight,” “44 More” and “Everyday.”
Earlier this week, the Maryland rapper took to Instagram to tease a video clip of Adult Swim’s ”Rick and Morty,” announcing the sequel mixtape. In the clip, the two characters talk about “mixtape Logic” vs. “album Logic,” while Grandpa Rick prefers “mixtape Logic.”
“I'm not in the mood for a message about how I can be whatever I want or equality and everybody and all that shit,” Rick says, a reference to 2017’s Everybody. "I want to hear some fucking titties, throwing stacks on some ass!”
If you remember, Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino’ was released back in 2016. He appeared as a guest on an episode of “Rick and Morty” back in 2016. But it wouldn’t be a Tarantino without the gorey, hyperbolized, “Bonnie & Clyde,” aspect of the mixtape’s cover art, which features an artistic representation of Logic and his wife. At first glance, ‘Bobby Tarantino ll,’ features anticipated collaborations with 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and Wiz Khalifa.
The mixtape even addresses the alleged beef with Logic and Joyner Lucas. The issues between the two artists have finally come to a head after years of Logic refusing to engage.
However, after Joyner Lucas dissed Logic earlier this week on the ‘Look Alive Remix,’ it appears Logic has fired back. On his track, “Yuck,” Logic addresses the beef:
“Hell nah, f--k rap, f--k beef, anyone that hate me, I wish you success
I wish you look in the mirror and ask yourself why you suppressed
If feelings of self-hatred that you wan' project on me
Bet if I never picked up the mic then we might be homies”
The album is the perfect blend of Logic’s intended conscious rap, while also having some booty-dancing inducing music like his song, “State of Emergency,” featuring 2 Chainz.
Big Sean and Logic are truly “an instant classic,” with their collab on “Wassup.”
Logic reminds us to keep hip-hop fun without dumbing down the message.The authenticity in his work contributes honest, thought-provoking realness in hip-hop. Logic finds a way to balance incorporating trends within rap, while effortlessly bringing relatable, everyday concerns to the forefront.
