Logic Explains Calling Out Donald Trump & Kanye West On “America” (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Logic returned this week with his third studio album Everybody.

One song on the project has the Maryland rapper expressing his issues with Donald Trump and Kanye West.

Logic raps on “America”:

George Bush doesn’t care about black people
2017 and Donald trump is the sequel so
Sh-t, I’ll say what Kanye won’t
Wake the f-ck up and give the people what they want
Man it’s all love but the youth is confused
Your music is 2020 but them political views
Is blurred I ain’t trying leave ya name slurred
Cuz honestly I idolize you on everything, my word
But I gotta say what need be said
Cuz I ain’t f-ckin with that hat with the colors that’s white and red
I know some people wish I’d act white instead
Say I’d use my pigment as a manifestation to get ahead

Kanye famously announced during a concert rant that he would have voted for Trump, and the G.O.O.D. Music founder later met with the President-Elect in New York City before the Inauguration.

Logic sat down with Genius to talk about his intent behind the lyrics on “America.”

“I love Kanye West. He’s my idol. He’s like one of my favorite musicians of all time,” said Logic.

The Def Jam recording artist added, “My idol has inspired me to stand up to even him… I don’t know what the f-ck you’re doing, man. I just don’t understand. I respect you. I love you. I care about you, and because of that I have to say apparently what you won’t.”

Logic’s “America” also features Chuck D, Black Thought, No I.D., and Big Lenbo.
