First of all, hearing this mix tape totally revolutionized my world of hip hop. I experienced a total paradigm shift when I heard songs like Shine On and Beggin, both of which introduced some of the most original flow and talent that I've heard in a long time. In order to truly get a feel for this young man's talent, you need to listen to the whole collection:
This link also includes free download information which I highly suggest taking advantage of. In later posts I'll be exploring the controversy behind pirating music and free music sharing as well so keep an eye out for that. However, let's explore Logic and his musical identity for now. To begin with, the songs open with some of the rawest samples and covers, coupled with a beat to die for. Particularly, check out Shine On (his best piece, in my opinion). Notice his mastery of word play and enunciation in this track. He's defined by his witty charisma while clearly expressing his talent and swag. He's extremely refreshing because of these combined characteristics and the mix tape leaves me hungry for more Logic in my life. Cornell's teaching me valuable lessons, but I'd rather get my knowledge from hip hop. Can you blame me?
