Last week, Logic invited Complex to listen to his debut album Under Pressure. While with them, Logic broke down 10 things fans should know about the album. Read them below.

 

1.    His influences are very obvious.

“You’ll definitely hear my influences. I wear my inspirations on my sleeve. It’s so weird to me that it’s OK to take something from Nas’ Illmatic because that was 20 years ago, but you can’t take something from Drake. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a difference between taking exact words, but I’m just very open with it.

The album is along the lines of good kid, m.A.A.d City more than anything else because it’s a dark story, that’s just what it is.

“The inspiration comes from the old legends to the new legends; from A Tribe Called Quest to OutKast, from Drake to Kendrick Lamar to J. Cole, even underground cats like Goldlink and Michael Christmas. I got KRS-One-Mad Crew vocals on there, all types of crazy shit. It’s all over the place.

“The album is along the lines of good kid, m.A.A.d City more than anything else because it’s a dark story, that’s just what it is. Stankonia, Nothing Was the Same, Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon II, Midnight Marauders, Wu-Tang Forever, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Born Sinner, these are all things I took elements from. I was like, ‘These are the things that I love, these are the things that inspired me, that’s what I’m going to do.’

“I don’t give a fuck about comparisons. Does it sound good? Yeah. Are the raps good? Yeah. Are the beats good? Yeah. Is the story real and authentic, does it check out? Yeah. OK then, shut the fuck up!”

In related news, my 4,516 word post on the subject of Beverly Katz’s death has been diluted down to the words, “This is both sexist and not.”

Imagine your OTP on the first crisp day of autumn.

  • Imagine them waking up, cocooned in a nest of warmth while the air outside is just cold enough that they turn off the alarm, tuck all hands and feet beneath the covers, and go back to sleep
  • Imagine them venturing outside wrapped in scarves and coats and gloves, grinning at the first sign of misty breath in the cold morning air
  • Imagine one of your OTP walking face-first into a spider’s web strung across the path, recoiling with horror while the other one laughs
  • Imagine the joy of discovering the first fallen chestnuts, or the first pile of leaves pushed against the pavement; imagine them kicking them at each other, at once five years old again and free of the worries of adulthood
  • Imagine your OTP having forgotten that with the first sign of cold weather comes the need for gloves – imagine one of your OTP blowing on frost-nipped fingers, before the other takes their hand and pushes it into their coat pocket, fingers entwined warmly
  • Imagine the last warm rays of summer sun, your OTP turning their faces up towards them and savouring every last moment
  • Imagine them coming home after a cold day outside, grabbing blankets from the cupboard and bundling up in a pile on the sofa. Imagine hot soup and the first wood fire of the season, crackling and warm on chilled toes and flushed cheeks.
  • Imagine your OTP in autumn, sharing scarves and hurried, cold kisses, laughing in anticipation for chilled mornings and warm evenings and looking forward to the first snows of winter.
