Logic has stated that his current album College Park is comparable to Eminem's 2002 smash 8 Mile.
Throughout a recent episode of STORY TIME, the rapper discussed the album's inspiration, which "takes place in 2011 with me and all my homies" on their way to an open mic night in Washington 'D.C'., and "the shenanigans they get up to along the route."
"It's like 8 Mile, except it's an album," he remarked, referring to the Curtis Hanson-directed film about a teenage Detroit rapper (Eminem) who battles with every part of his life while chasing his ambition of becoming a rap star.
“Expect it’s not B-Rabbit, it’s B-Racial,” he said, perhaps taking another shot at media personality Joe Budden, who earlier pleaded with the rapper to retire from music following his disputed vocal rendition of Ice Cube's "Ice Cube's "Ice Cube's "Ice Cube's "Ice" It was a Good Day."
“It’s a good album and I think you guys are really going to like it,” Discreetly trying to promote the release, he added.
Earlier in the program, the songwriter of "Sucker for Pain" shifted his focus to RZA, describing how he convinced the Wu-Tang Clan member to appear on his song "Cruisin' Across the Universe."
“This is back when the fucking album was half rock and roll,” Logic said around the two-minute mark, “I was like, ‘Alright, let’s start it out with some weird shit. So the album starts really weird and different, but it’s cool, though, and then it’s like some weird vocally [André 3000], OutKast vibe. I’m rapping, then out of nowhere the RZA comes in and starts rapping about COVID.”
He continued: “So he’s rapping and I’m like, ‘Okay, what the fuck is this song?’ Then I’m like, ‘Oh my God, what if this song is a dream sequence in a day in the life of me and my homies in Compton … driving in 2011 to an open mic night? Then I get to get away with this really weird intro that’s dope as fuck and make it a dream about how Logic is waking up?”
“I don’t know, man. Shit just happened and changed,” he said. “This shit is a masterpiece. College Park is crazy, bro. It’s special, man. It’s really dope.”
