Logic is known for his introspective and socially conscious lyrics, Logic has risen to become one of the most prominent figures in hip-hop over the past decade. His 2017 hit single “1-800-273-8255” brought attention to mental health issues and suicide prevention, and earned him a Grammy nomination. With his quick wit and impressive lyrical abilities, Logic has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the rap game.
Logic has been making the headlines lately for his cover of Ice Cube’s 1992 hit single “It Was A Good Day.” However, the rapper received massive backlash for his cover of the song.
Logic wasn’t about to take it lying down as he responded to the backlash during a TikTok video where he elaborated on the situation after a fan suggested he do a cover album on music from the ’90s.
“You know it’s funny you should say that,” Logic said. “Um, it’s funny you should say that because I thought about doing that. Wouldn’t that be cool? Everybody’s all p**sed off at me because I did a f***ing Ice Cube cover. Meanwhile I texted Ice Cube and he’s like, ‘Man, keep on doing you brotha,’ like what the… who gives a f**k. Who gives a f**k.”
He added: “But you know what would be great? Is if, you’re right. I should do a whole f***ing album, and just do a whole album of f***ing hard ass 90s records and call it Logic Greatest Hits, and get all them paid, and publishing, and take care of all the legends and the goat’s and the great’s from the 90s. And f***ing do a covers album, who gives a f**k..whaaat.”
On March 6, Logic nearly broke the internet when he released a guitar-heavy version of Ice Cube’s hit song. Following the release, Joe Budden expressed his disdain for Logic on The Joe Budden Podcast. He also noted that Logic should retire from music.
“Logic, I hate to continue to make a career at your expense,” he began. “I don’t hate it, actually. I’m glad that I have a little list of you that I get to — [laughs] that’s horrible to say. One day I’m gonna grow up.”
“Logic, I beg of you, I’m pleading with you: please join me in retirement. Never step near a recording device again! Throw your phone in the ocean! Be allergic to microphones! Promise your fans nothing! Don’t go to the studio ever again! You are the worst, yo! You are really, really bad!”
He added: “And then when we think he can’t get any worse, you have the bright idea of doing an Ice Cube flip.”
While Logic mentioned doing a cover album, we will have to wait and see if he’s actually serious about it. Until then, stay tuned to Thirsty For News.
