Logic’s Debut Album ‘Under Pressure’ Officially Certified Gold
Logic will be getting a plaque to celebrate the succes of his first album, but his next LP is causing some controversy. The album's title, AfricAryaN, has drawn the ire of some observers like OG Maco. During a recent interview on Dan Harmon’s podcast, Logic explained how he came up with title.
"The first man and woman [are] from Africa, and over time, culturally evolving into a lighter and lighter and much more fairer skin. So the album is going to be called AfricAryaN," he said. "And it’s about me being black and white and seeing life from two sides."
Logic's use of the word Aryan has sparked most of the criticism. But Young Sinatra has a reason for using it that goes beyond being an attention grabber.
"[It's] about that cultural evolution and how you can go from the darkest of skin to the lightest of skin," Logic told Harmon. "Or the Aryan brotherhood, if you will, who believe that they’re ‘pure of blood.’ When, at the end of the day, we all have that in our blood, and we all have so many different ethnicities in our blood, no matter how pure we think we are. At the end of the day, life should be about peace, love and positivity and about equality for all – every man, woman and child that walks the Earth. And that’s what I’m saying on this entire album."
That might not be a suitable reason for all the critics, but it does show that Logic put serious thought into the title.
