Logic: Under Pressure Album Review

Posted by Unknown Tuesday, October 21, 2014
As a fan of Logic for a number of years, I have been waiting patiently for the day of the release of his debut album. For a while, it felt like it was never going to happen. However, after releasing four mixtapes, signing with Def Jam, a number of nationwide and international tours, and numerous tweets from the man himself, the day has arrived for Under Pressure to be released to the public for the rap junkies to listen to.

Under Pressure is a very serious album compared to most of Logic's mixtapes. Throughout the album, Logic tells stories of how his brothers were in gangs and how it affected him, his father's addiction to crack, his difficult uprising, his success, and his transition into a celebrity, etc. At the end of the day, what most fans only want to know is this: did Logic "sell out" and became a mainstream rapper? The answer to that question is no, at least not yet.

Like I mentioned, this album is very dark with its lyrical content, and the production that went into it matches what Logic is saying. Most of the songs are very emotional and it doesn't really bring out a vibe that it will sell well if the song was released as a single.

For some reason, fans have a tendency to turn on rappers if they sign a record deal and just release albums that includes pop-like songs that would successfully sell as singles. Logic clearly stays away from that with this record, showing people who and what he is and what he brings to the table. This album isn't going for mainstream appeal as it is the coming out party for Logic and letting us know that he is here to stay.

Now for my opinion on the album: I am in love with it. Everything flows together smoothly and all of the songs deserve to be there. From "Gang Related," which tells from both Logic's prospective and from his brother's about the gangs they were in, to "Nikki," which is about the addiction of a certain something that Logic has been infatuated with for ten years now, everything has a spot and successfully lets us into Logic's world.

This is a definite buy for any fans of Logic who want to get to better understand the man's youth. I fully believe people will be talking about this album years from now as the starting of a great career for this young man. At the age of  24, Logic has brought upon us a new classic (Iggy pun intended) that hopefully brings the man the recognition and respect that he deserves.

So what do you think about the record? Is it a five-star classic or is it a dud that will be made fun of for years to come? Fill free to comment below!
