American rapper Logic released an album in May called Everybody, which has hit the top of the billboard charts.
His music focuses on many of today’s problems, some from his own experience. This album features topics ranging from mental illness to mass shootings, and has caught attention of many.
On his album, his songs focus on something important. He has songs about racism, being broke, on welfare, being poor, and more. Logic is shedding light on who he is and the message he spreads as a whole.
The song “Anxiety,” addresses a panic attack he had in 2015 and a battle with crippling anxiety that led him to the hospital. Logic also grew up poor and had parents who struggled with addiction.
“I think Logic is very wise and has good ideas about how to better the world,” junior Cora Gladlow said.
A top hit on his album “1-800-273- 8255,Heart” was made to help those who are in a dark place and can’t seem to find the light. It is an anthem for suicide prevention, and makes a strong attempt to let the fan know someone is there for them. It’s supposed to be an emotional plea for survival that encourages listeners to fight for their lives and overcome feelings of suicide.
“His new song 1-800 was very inspiring to young teens that are gay and/or suicidal. I believe it is really deep, and it describes a lot of relatable experiences,” junior Kelli Bamford said.
Logic’s message is that no one is alone, and with all the problems in the world, we need to come together. With the spread of peace, love, and positivity, this world can be a better place.by
