George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People. Does Trump Though? Inquiring minds want to know.
Logic released an album this month that did first week numbers of 247,000 equivalent album units and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Not only that, but it did 196,000 in traditional album sales. As in, people bought the physical copy, like the CD. That’s near unheard of in 2017. But, what caught people’s attention even more is what he had to say about Kanye and Donald Trump on track 6 of ‘Everybody‘ called “America”.
Logic is not pleased with what he has seen from hip hop icon Kanye West and his views on Donald Trump. We remember Kanye West being vocal about his support of Donald Trump during his tour last year. We remember him meeting with Donald Trump before his nervous breakdown, as well. This rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, fans included and, Logic decided to join J. Cole as another rapper to talk about it on a song. Listen to the song below.
This Monday, Logic elaborated on his thoughts on the matter in an interview with NPR. He said of Kanye West, “[In] 2005, Kanye West called out George Bush and said, ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ And that’s how the community felt at that time, with what was going on with Katrina, it was horrendous. And you have Kanye, who dared to stand up and say how he felt. Now here we are, 12 years later, and he’s not really being that voice that we know him as.”
He claims that there is no beef between him and Kanye. However, it seems as if people are more concerned about where the hip hop hero’s head is at, rather than if he has beef with the people calling him out. Logic, like J. Cole, seems to be echoing A LOT of people’s sentiments. Kanye is allegedly in the middle of nowhere, Wyoming cooking up his album. The rest is to be continued…
