Rating: 3.6 out of 5
Most people seem to either have powerful positive feelings or strong disdain towards the bi-racial rapper born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II better known as Logic.The first song on the album sounds like the intro to a rock opera set inside of an arcade in a wild type of way. The album transitions into "Everybody," in which Logic addresses his temporary absence from the music scene, his rough upbringing in Maryland, and the similarities found between all people. This album is certainly black, but it would have been more satisfying if Logic touched on these issues more deeply and less at a surface level-- this also ties into a frequent critcisim of Logic that could be reiterated again with this body of work -- and that is repetitiveness. Interestingly enough, in this album about acceptance and diversity, it would have been nice to see a bit more diversity. Everybody is honestly a bit too self-centered considering the propertied scope of the project.
Real or imagined, Drake and Kendrick are in competition for the coveted title of best rapper alive, and Kendrick’s successful sales adds another chapter to the narrative.
The first few seconds of Kendrick Lamar’s latest video obliterates any illusions of modesty that the song’s title, Humble, might suggest. Lamar stands in a vacant chamber dressed as the pope, bathed in divine light, before the camera cuts to a shot of the rapper lounging on a sea of cash surrounded by semi-nude female accountants. The video – instead of a reminder not to get carried away with one’s talents – is a clarion call to his competitors, a scattershot narrative informing fellow musicians that the god of modern hip-hop has returned.
Facts about the album
If you are interested in listening to the album below I will put the link to the album.
It is a great album it contains many different songs for different tastes. It's best songs in my personal opinion are gyalchester, Portland, Teenage fever & Since way back. I would rate the song a solid 10 out of 10 yet the only bad feature is the fact that so far the album is only available on spotify and apple music and I believe sound cloud yet is not available on youtube. As you can see on the video below his album is actually even changing spotify so now only premium users can hear certain restricted albums that free users can not listen to.
