Logic’s newest installment, Young Sinatra: Undeniable, is the best mixtape of the year. Logic really honed his skill on this mixtape and truly magnified his talent as a rapper. With the influx of young rappers entering the game, Logic is quickly beating out all of the contenders and blasting his way to the top.
His past made him the rapper he is today– a very driven, hardworking individual. Logic, born Robert Bryson Hall II, left home at 17 and has supported himself ever since. His father was never in his life, but when he got older he did get a chance to finally meet him. Instead of having ill feelings, Logic said, “life is too short to stay angry and sometimes you have to keep the past in the past and look forward.” He was able to forget and they currently sustain a relationship. Another interesting aspect of Logic is, he doesn’t have a huge friend circle. Instead of partying and messing around like most rappers, he worked nearly 18 hours a day. His regular day consisted of waking up, working the morning shift, having a two hour break where he wrote music (his first mixtape), went to his night job, slept and repeat. Listening to his last mixtape, you would think he was a full time musician.
However, who Logic is can be understand through his music. Undeniable starts off with the song “Inception,” a strong opener going in over the movie’s recognizable beat. Going through the rest, there are tracks that just show his raw lyrical talent “Dead Presidents III,” “No Biggie,” “Disgusting,” “Young Sinatra III,” and “All Sinatra Evertyhing.” Showing his versatility, Logic also has a few mainstream songs that still show his lyrical power such as “Numbers,” “The Spotlight,” and “Tic Tac Toe.” One of my personal favorites is “Do Ya Like,” where Logic goes over a sample from Adele and Childish Gambino. Logic ends the mixtape with “World Wide,” a reflection of his success thus far. In “World Wide,” the chorus is a compilation of fans sentiments towards the self-made rapper.
Overall, this mixtape is eclectic and well crafted. Every song will suite someones style. I look forward to seeing his next project, but for now this is a must download project.
