Someone who has always been able to put out strong messages in hip-hop, Def Jam's Logic, released a new single from a forthcoming album, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. The title track is a heavy outpour of all of the insecurities that the rapper has been dealing with over the past year. At the end of the music video, the album gets announced to be his sixth studio album.
In the music video, the rapper spits the song amidst blood gushing out of a massive slash in his neck. Logic talks about his battle with depression, gripes with social media, and the negative remarks that permeate about his appearance or skill. He mentions how people never will put him at the top with rappers like J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar.
In the music video, Logic pulls a firearm out from his pants and alludes to his dangerous thoughts of suicide.
The song ends on a positive note as he wraps it up all with the perspective of taking all the hits in life yet fighting back. In the final verse, Bobby tells us,
"And all the haters that's hatin', just love 'em
'Cause that's the only way you ever gon' kill 'em
Know somebody feel 'em
Last but not least, put your ego on the shelf
And remember, love yourself
Nah, nah, nah
Put your ego on the shelf and love yourself"
"Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" follows the album's first single, "Keanu Reeves". Both releases have credits from longtime Visionary Music Group producer, 6ix.
The Maryland artist is coming off two projects in 2018, a mixtape and a full-length album, YSIV. However, music is not all the artist has his hand in. Today, he debuts with his first novel, Supermarket, packaged with a studio album soundtrack.
Technically, now Logic has five studio albums. The release date of Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is still in the dark.
Logic has also teased the idea of doing a podcast in the far future when he decides to retire from making music.
