  • The term "Clickbait" refers to content that is designed to attract attention and encourage users to click on a link to a particular web page. In this instance Logic is using the word to call out Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne Tha God, who he accuses of provoking controversy during interviews in order to increase viewership.

    I don't do the Breakfast Club 'cause Charlamagne is shameless
    That's the only one I leave out when I run my bases
    Do your research 'fore you call somebody homophobic
    You make a living off of controversy and you know it


    Logic's issues with Charlamagne date back to October 21, 2014, when the radio host asked Logic who raped his sister. He says he now avoids Breakfast Club interviews during his press runs.
  • Logic also brings up the death of rapper Lil Peep, who passed away from an accidental overdose of fentanyl-laced Xanax back in November 2017.

    RIP Lil Peep, let that young man sleep
    Let that young man death teach
    The youth, the streets
    To beat addiction


    Logic says the media exploited Peep's death as a way to gain clicks for themselves.
