Songfacts®:

  • "Keanu Reeves" features Logic boasting about private jets, women and writing movies as well as taking aim at his haters. The Maryland rapper also compares himself to the actor's character Neo in The Matrix. He brags:

    I am the one, like Keanu Reeves

    In The Matrix series of movies, Neo is referred to as "The One," an especially powerful human who will free humans and end the war. Logic is saying he is also "The One," as he's on top of the rap game.
  • Logic's braggadocious rhymes are balanced out by lines where he pokes fun at himself.

    Did you know I'm mixed like Obama?
    It ain't a project if Logic ain't talkin' 'bout being biracial


    The rapper was born to an African-American father and a Caucasian mother.

    When them soccer moms pull up in they van while I rid
    Like, 'Oh my God, children, it's the 1-800 guy!'


    Logic's 2017 single "1-800-273-8255," featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, was made in partnership with the Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It rose up the charts to become his first crossover hit, bringing suicide and mental health matters into the mainstream. Many people had been unaware of Logic before the release of the song and he was dubbed "the 1-800 guy."
  • The track was produced by Logic's frequent collaborator 6ix and A.G. who previously worked with the Maryland rapper on his Bobby Tarantino II track "Yuck."
  • The track was first performed by Logic during his summer 2018 Bobby Tarantino vs Everybody tour.
