  • Lyrics
  • "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" finds Logic venting feelings of self-doubt caused by hateful comments on social media. He grapples with dealing with the criticism he is getting for his vulnerable material.

    And every time you drop a song, they say that it's wack or it's hot
    And don't give a damn that it came from the heart
    They tear it apart like hyenas that's here for the dreamers

    Unfavorable comparisons of his work with prominent rappers such as Kendrick Lamar, Drake and J. Cole by internet trolls, leave Logic feeling insecure.

    I ain't good enough, I should quit, I should kill myself
    "'Cause you'll never be Kenny"
    "You'll never be better than Drizzy or Cole"

    It's killing Logic inside that people believe he'll never reach the same level as these artists.
  • The beat comes courtesy of Logic's in-house producer 6ix. He provided the instrumentation for most of the Maryland rapper's hit songs including "Everybody," "1-800-273-8255" and "44 More."
