Everybody is proud of Logic!
No seriously! Today, the young rapper makes the Billboard Top 200 Chart with his well-constructed and novel project, Everybody.
A tall-tale that is far from fictional, young Bobby tells his story, from beginning to end of living in the midst of biracialism and dealing with the turmoil that came with it. Despite the anguish and hurt he faced each day by a mother who called him her son and at times the “N” word. Nonetheless, Logic doesn’t fear his past, but rather uses it to fuel his celebration of life and diversity.
The Super Mario World man ranks his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums Chart today. The album released this compilation via Visionary/Def Jam Recordings, and according to Billboard there were 196,000 were in traditional album sales.
The Billboard 200 has always been known to be one of the most prestigious rewards for any artist trying to claim their spot in the music industry, and it is constantly being updated as music is an ever-changing domain of sound.
The Chart also measures in the number of streaming streams the song receives, which in Everybody‘s case is 47,000 in SEA.
Logic dropped this amazing piece of artistry, which released on May 5th, and takes you through an adventure of death, purgatory, and life and offers you sprinkles of wisdom and comic relief. Including such notable tracks as “Everybody”, “America”, 1-800-273-8255″, and “Black Spiderman”, the album includes a myriad of features that keep you on your toes, and desperately asking for more. It’s jus the sheer nature of cliche and profound that gets you. In all of us, we’re all searching for acceptance, and some of us just don’t know how to do that in a world filled with so much hate and destitute. However, amidst the isolation comes an inner hope that Logic distinctly points out within each record.
As you follow the songs play by play (which you have to do in order to get the full story), we get a taste of many thoughts of The Super Mario World man such as his political ad sociocultural opinions and his feelings and experiences living with a drug-abusing mother and father. The album also is set with a man named Atom (radio personality Big Von), who just dies in a car crash, only to meet one version of God (astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson) in the waiting room of life and death to learn more about how everyone is created equal and how we all return in the afterlife to be reincarnated as a completely different person of race, gender/sexual orientation, religion and age.
Truly a stunning epic; his last album, like his last supper, one not meant to be ever forgotten.
