I say "whips up" because today marks a new and exciting path for Logic. Previously, I had heard tracks off of his various Young Sinatra mixtapes, scouring far and wide to find self-produced jams. There were none that jumped out at me, but I remember hearing him say a line "I even made this beat myself, just so y'all can feel it…" That's the kind of lyricism that gives me the chills.
It's been a minute since we last dove into Logic productions, but today we are generously gifted a "duet" by the name of "Driving Ms. Daisy", featuring none other than Childish Gambino (otherwise known as 30 Rock writer Donald Glover). The song begins with Logic laying down a few lines about how hectic life truly is now, transitioning into Gambino's speculation of the future. It's been a hell of a ride in 2013-2014 for both the boys, and it's refreshing to hear such an expressive track for once- this year.
"I was actually on my headlining tour when I produced and wrote this record in one sitting," Logic tells Billboard. "I was deathly sick and dealing with a lot of problems, not personal so much as business and getting the album ready. I decided to put it on a song, and the fact [that] I produced it made it feel more honest to me. I gave the listener every aspect of my mind on this matter."
Check out "Driving Ms. Daisy" now and gear up for Logic's next big project, out hopefully soon.
