Till the End

Album: Under Pressure (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Logic's debut album Under Pressure takes the listener on a dark journey chronicling his troubled past growing up with an absent father, an abusive mother and drug-dealing siblings. However, it ends on a positive note with this cut in which he spits triumphant verses about overcoming all he's been through:

    Okay, last verse I gotta make it count
    Won't speak on my bank account
    So many commas I'd have to pause and I can't afford to just waste the bars
    Every day boy I thank the Lord, I got a lot of problems but could have more
  • Logic told Revolt TV the song is "the most positive and nicest f—k you to the world." He added that it's his way of saying "I did it, I'm here, I'm not going to back down, I'm not going to forget where I came from, I'm going to work harder than I have ever worked in my entire life and I'm going to have a great f--king time while I doing so."
