"Simple yet refreshing songs that you can enjoy at any time of the day."


LOGIC'S SEVENTH MIXTAPE
RELEASED ON 2018


Maryland native, Logic has no intention to take his foot off the gas any moment soon. After releasing his acclaimed album “Everybody” last year (that includes his Grammy-nominated self-help anthem “1-800-273-8255”), Logic dropped his sixth mixtape “Bobby Tarantino II” earlier this month. Logic is the troubled good guy that raps about anxiety, politics, substance abuse, racism and other in-depth topics on his albums. But there’s always two sides of the same coin, and Bobby Tarantino II proved to us that Logic could loosen up a bit and have fun.

The mixtape opened with a sketch from Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty entitled “Grandpa’s Space Ship” that emphasised the differences between “Mixtape Logic” and “Album Logic”. As you may have already noticed, Logic’s materials in his mixtapes are usually more about bragging, less ambitious, talks about lighter topics, and are sometimes easier to listen to but have that same charismatic charm as the materials on his albums.

The second track “Overnight” has that uplifting beat that is accompanied by brag lyrics that has flavours of wisdom on it. The track can be seen as Logic way of reflecting his success without ignoring standards that he has set for himself. The track “Yuck” was believed to be a diss track aimed at fellow rapper Joyner Lucas, but Logic himself has denied it. The track again showed his wisdom with lyrics like “Hell nah, fuck rap, fuck beef, anyone that hate me, I wish you success”. The lyric superbly captured Logic’s talent for making bragging yet humble lyric.

Some of the best cuts from Bobby Tarantino II featured big names such as Wiz Khalifa and 2 Chainz. The track “Indica Badu” that features Khalifa combines constant drum beats mixed with a soothing synth sound that can easily be the new anthem for people needing desperate relaxation. The track “Warm it Up” also has that similar vibe to the song I mentioned earlier. It has that slowed down Kris Kross/Amy Winehouse-esque style of sound that was combined with trap music at the very end.

My personal favourite from this mixtape was the track “44 More”. The record demonstrate Logic’s technical skill in rapping. This song was Logic’s flex-fest with his typical versatile and agile flow that was complimented with infectious instruments. This track is the one for you if you need to turn it up a notch.

Overall Bobby Tarantino II delivers simple yet refreshing songs that you can enjoy at any time of the day. The tracks on this album don’t necessarily convey any severe message like the usual Logic stuff, but it is important to realise that the mixtape successfully displayed Logic’s technical ability and creativity in creating music that makes his material more entertaining every time you have a listen.

Final Verdict: 3.5/5
