I didn’t like Logic’s new album, Everybody. There’s your kicker. Feel free to scroll past everything I write here and pound your keyboard keys to dust with angry missives in the comments. I’ll wait — there, you’re back, and I hope you feel better and are ready to listen. Everybody was a lot of things; it was heavy-handed, it was occasionally cheesy, and it was disappointing. But it was not bad; it just also wasn’t really all that good. It was humdrum, middle of the road, wishy-washy, “all lives matter” rap, and that is the last thing the culture or the genre needs. I understand, though. We are drowning in a deluge of devil-may-care, unintelligible, unconcerned mumble rap. Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug and the like are ruining hip-hop, and rappers like Logic are just the cure for that sort of drivel, right?
