Logic is always good with putting great visuals with his tracks and once again he’s proven he’s able to keep that consistency going. This time, he’s spittin’ ill bars with the great Big Lenbo and he’s coming with blazing lyrics as well. It’s the only way especially when you’re apart of the Ratt Pack. After pressing play the first time on the music video, I was mesmerized not because of the visuals at first but by the truth and rawness displayed by Logic’s lyrics. Hearing him speak on being a tenant in College Park and also sharing his thoughts on where he wants you to go immediately when the song comes on reminds you of an ill Big L flow from the early 90s.
Now when Logic mentions this in the beginning you already know this going to be a heatmaker “Okay, now take a trip inside my mind like you was off to Venice / It’s me and B-I-G L-N-B-O cooking like chemist” moving on to speaking about Big Lenbo’s verses when this man says, I’m unscannable, young cannibal / Eat wack MCs like Hannibal / Cause Joe Pesci’s my spirit animal, like let me say that one more time so you can understand the significance of those lines, I’m unscannable, young cannibal / Eat wack MCs like Hannibal / Cause Joe Pesci’s my spirit animal. How in the hell can you not deny this man ain’t nice with putting together bars on a sick beat. Anybody that says he’s eating whack rappers like Hannibal and declares his spirit animal is Joe Pesci is not to be played with on the mic.
Still can’t believe I didn’t get a shorty pregnant / Man. that’s the definition of a life sentence
When a man is speaking like that he deserves that life sentence Logic dismissed earlier in the track. Now one of the more remarkable things in this video is the cameo’s. I’m sure there were a ton of them but off the top the one I noticed the most was Jesse Boykins III possibly because his hair and style is so noticeable. Not to mention seeing Logic and Big Lenbo be the main stars throughout the video is simply amazing. S/O to Logic directing his own video and having a team of badasses around him to make it all come together.
