Ben Givon Announcement: Evaluate: Common sense’s “Bobby Tarantino 2” makes up for lackluster “Everybody” album | Arts & Leisure

“Bobby Tarantino 2” is a continuation from Logic’s previous mixtape series “Bobby Tarantino.” Logic is coming off his most mixed album release so far, “Everybody.”

Half of the people hated the album because of its really mainstream songs and the constant mentioning of Logic’s race.

However, “Everybody” also gave him one of his most popular songs to date, “1-800-273-8255” featuring DJ Khalid and Alessia Cara.

Logic’s big success was leaving people to see what else he has up his sleeve with his next project.

Enters “Bobby Tarantino 2,” which is different Logic’s recent albums. The album feels more like a mixtape as Logic raps about his wealth and his recent success in the music industry. So the big question is did Logic bounce back with this release?

Yes, Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino 2” has an album full of bangers and some really so-so pop songs.

The album starts with a promo from cartoon characters Rick and Morty, one of Logic’s favorite TV shows.

In this promo they are making the comparisons between album Logic and mixtape Logic, which is constant topic throughout the music industry. Rick says he prefers mixtapes because they talk about tits and ass, which is not what this album was about, amusingly.

The album’s single “44 More” is an absolute banger. The beat switches in songs are dope. It begins with a chill distorted beat then it switches to a crazy bass-heavy beat similar to the one in Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA.” Then he tones it back down with a really calm beat.

Logic delivers lyrically with lines like “I’m supply the wood like Elijah” and “They say life is a bitch and if that is the case then I’m finna surprise her.”

Then, he talks about his success when he mentions, “Sold more albums my first week than Harry Styles and Jonathan Siennicki.” Overall, “44 More” is one of Logic’s best songs to date and shows his versatility in his flow.

Logic then proceeds to slow it down with the song “Indica Badu” featuring Wiz Khalifa. This song is about one special thing: weed. A vague topic in itself, but Logic is very soothing throughout the song over a beat produced by 6ix, the main producer of the album. The beat also pays homage to producer J Dilla.

Logic starts talking about how relaxing smoking weed is, and the things he does while doing it. He says, “Riding round the city with homies blowing trees / Wavy like the seven seas, living life.” Then, Wiz Khalifa comes in with a surprisingly good feature, switching to a faster flow for a nice change of pace.  

Lyrically, this wasn’t better than “44 More” or his other tracks, but the subdued beat and flow make the song worth listening to.

Along comes the controversial song “Yuck.” With a dope, trap beat behind him, Logic sings his own hook, which isn’t the best thing, but his voice works for the song. Soon, the lyrics take a turn when he starts to talk about his haters.

He mentions, “Talking shit bout Logic I never respond. I’ll let success talk / ‘cause a word of advice / More achievements for yourself and less talk … If I ever did I dead you in this game with no respawn.”

The clapback track was likely aimed toward rapper Joyner Lucas. Joyner has consistently attacked Logic with claims that the Maryland native stole his idea for the popular song, “1-800-273-8255.”

In every song, Joyner throws subliminal shots at Logic and always tends to release songs after him for some reason.

“Warm It Up” is the best song on this album, including an old school beat. Logic plays the two face on this song. This song features Young Sinatra, his first mixtape.

Basically playing with the idea between mixtape Logic and album Logic. On this flow, Logic’s lyricism surprises combined with his auto-tuned singing.

The glaring negative on this album would have to be the really pop-induced songs, which don’t add anything at all.

“Overnight” and “Everyday,” while the production is there, Logic just doesn’t create quality pop songs. Any artist can do better, especially people who belong to that genre. His auto-tune falls flat, and they were worse than some of songs on his “Everybody” album.

Overall with this album’s production, lyrics and funny topics, Logic definitely bounced back from his last album, but still shows room for improvement.

3.8/5
