Logic Discusses Not Speaking Out About Freddie Gray Killing & Black Lives Matter Movement (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Maryland-based rapper Logic is from the same state where Baltimore resident Freddie Gray died from injuries suffered while in police custody. The controversial death of Gray led to protests and rioting in the city as well as six Baltimore officers facing criminal charges.

Logic was a recent guest on The Breakfast Club, and The Incredible True Story album creator discussed why he chose not to speak out in public about the Gray situation or the overall Black Lives Matter movement against police injustice.

“It’s horrible man. Every situation involving harm of another human being – it hurts my soul. Let alone something as ridiculous as race, religion, or sexuality,” stated Logic when asked about the killing of Gray. “Certain people hit me up and said, ‘You should say something. You should speak on it.’ They’re trying to push me. And it’s like, ‘Yo, I’m an entertainer.’”

He added, “Some people were like, ‘How come you didn’t say anything?’ Because my music is for those people who are out there fighting the good fight. When they go home frustrated, tired, and feeling like they want to take a life themselves – hopefully they can find peace and escape in my music and fight another day.”

Host Charlamagne Tha God then asked the DMV representative what he was doing for the Black Lives Matters movement. Logic replied, “I’m being me. I’m surviving motherf*cker. Sh*t, I’m half black. I’m part of this culture.”

    COLE IS “HALF BLACK” ALSO AND I’VE SEEN THAT NIGGA TOUCHING THE STREETS A FEW TIMES!!!!! THAT WHY HE’S 100 TIMES BETTER THAN THIS LIL SUCKA!!!!!!!

    KILL YOSELF FOOL!!!!

    • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

      J Cole is the best half white/ half black rapper of all time

      • Anthony Mason

        Bizzy though?

      • Anthony Mason

        Just Cole is one of the most meaningful rapper. Forget race…

        He doesn’t need to kill or promote drugs to connect to people souls. He isnt on the devilish s*** either…..

  • Anthony Mason

    Logic keeps getting better and better…..His videos are awesome too….

    • bluelight74

      Are you serious, or was that sarcasm?

      • Anthony Mason

        Lol. Do I seem like a logic fan?

        If I wanted nerd raps I would write them and spit them myself. Lmao!

      • bluelight74

        Ah, ok . I didn’t think you would be.

      • Anthony Mason

        His interviews are soft like slim Jesus interviews. Mediocre and politically correct in person but fire breathing on records does not appeal to me….

  • swift

    “Im half black”? which really means “Im half-white and I dont wanna offend any potential white fans.”

    • swift

      I take that back, after looking on line. I actually thought he was white. Regardless of that, maybe he feels like its not his lane

  • MrNoName2K

    Logic is a good dude no doubt, but I just cant f*ck with his rap game

  • True_Fan

    I blame the hiphop community for making suckas like Logic relevant. I have never listened to him before and now I’m glad I haven’t. You would never hear J Cole say something like this.

  • Ionithus

    A real live walking contradiction. The name and what cane out of his mouth say it all

  • Markus

    Born and raised in Maryland and want the state’s support for your career but an issue like police brutality and murder arises and because it’s not entertainment related you don’t give yours? Dude is a coward for that.

  • Larry Sandwiches

    Im not saying every entertainer has to be ultra political, but when you got a platform, and you got people who listen to you, and something happens where youre from…….i mean, you gotta at least address it and say something or offer some kind of support or opinion….i bet this dude would do the ice bucket challenge tho.

    • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

      When you’re a white rapper you have to walk around eggshells and make sure you don’t say anything that could be misinterpreted. You’re not really free to simply “be yourself”. Usually they have to act either more or act less ghetto than they actually are. He may be way more about the cause than he’s letting on.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Thats just the Allhiphop comment section culture. True hiphop heads recognize bars and skills and True people respect anyone who speaks what they feel and uses their platform for good. I get what youre saying, but “walking on eggshell” is just a nicer way of saying “scared”.

        But hey, maybe his career and “being accepted” mean more to him.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        True but just for example though, what if he was outspoken about the Freddy Grey situation and people had “you didn’t grow up like that, FOH” type comments and accuse him of trying to ride that wave for publicity. There’s so much you have to consider. I don’t think that’s very far fetched.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        I get it, and Im with you, but there is a reason he said people are hitting him up to speak on it. Outsiders opinions on the situation SHOULD be irrelevent to him, but i get why its important to him. I just think that if Baltimore is his community, he has some sort of responsibilty more than just, “go home and pop my tape in”.

        Maybe not tho. I dont hate on the dude for not speaking out, but his reasoning when asked about it is kind of sh!tty.

  • Fresh

    What?

  • Brindle

    He’s an idiot… Used to be embarrassing to be unaware or incapable of speaking on your surroundings…

    • B.U.

      I don’t hink he’s unaware or unable. I think he’s just unwilling.

      • Brindle

        that just might be worse

      • B.U.

        Yeah, but I’m not surprised. Hip Hop hasn’t done a damn thing as a collective on social awareness since Self Destruction so there is no pressure on poplular artists to say anything.

      • Brindle

        EXACTLY

  • B.U.

    Translation: “99% of my fans are white and identify with my white side. No way in hell I’m gonna alienate them”

    .Everybody wanna be black until it’s inconvenient.

    • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

      I’m white and I identify more with his black side so f*** you

      • NoGoBoi

        Ur white, ur privileged by ur race and never encounter what his “black side” endures, so stfu wit that bs. He’s too weak 2 walk that line and ur too ignorant 2 understand reality by making a dumb azz statement like that. Fool

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        My cousin was shot and killed by the police and I grew up poor. Suck my dick.

      • Anthony Mason

        Lol! Tell em nigga….

      • NoGoBoi

        And if u co-signing him that shhhhiiitttt goes 4 u 2 clown.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Im co-signing him, cus you sound ignorant as f–k the way youre talking. You definitiley dont represent the majority of us. You can suck my d!ck too.

        Here comes the elementary school “youre gay!” comment.

      • NoGoBoi

        Nothing about me and u holds the same representation clown. I see how u tuck ur tail and agreed with all of his other comments, ur the worse kind of black person, probably had prayforfrance/prayforparis hastags everywhere. Ur a slave in the mind still, find ways to justify or reason with these ignorant white people, instead of holding down ur own race. Coon azz ni@@er. With the er puss

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Nope. Only you and a few idiots in these comment sections think the way you do. And if I was wrong, there would have been a race war A LONG time ago. Nope, sorry charlie, there are alot of race issues in this country, BUT:
        -Not very many white people are racist

        And

        -Not very many black people think like you

        Keep being spoon fed by the media tho. And suck my d!ck.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        I’ve never met any black like this guy in real life. Always online. I’ve never felt unwelcome or unsafe around black people. One time I drove through philly and some black was like “FOH Crackkka” and I just kept driving. That’s literally the only time I can recall something like that even remotely happening.

      • Anthony Mason

        Just be you. I don’t like like racism and people need to stop thinking like that. Smh….

      • NoGoBoi

        Brush up on ur understanding of particular words and step outside of ur suburban neighborhood. A coon will always be a coon and defend and fight for their master, as they wouldn’t give 2 fuks about ur ignorant black ass. Race war? Dumb azz what u think has been going on for decades? U stupid clown, open ur eyes and stop listening 2 everything they tell u, u ol ben carson azz ni@@er. U just as gay as ur white owner.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        You’ll never be able to stop me from liking most black people and at the same time wishing I could stab you. You lose.

      • NoGoBoi

        U would never meet up with any real black man face-2-face and speak as open as u do online. Facts. If so, u let me know.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        Define real black man. What if they are of mixed racial background ? Because I slapped the sandy vagina out of this biracial kid once.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        A real black man wouldnt speak to him the way you are either. MOST black people and white people get along. FACT.

      • NoGoBoi

        1st u wouldn’t know what a real black man would do because you never step foot in a black man’s shoes. Nothing about what u say or actions u display, is that of a black man, i feel sorry for ur kinfolk and bloodline. If u think white people and black people have this “bowl full of cherries” rapport with one another, u keep thinking that coon. Now I’m done with this convo with u 2 ben carson.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Youu must be real old or something

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Hahaha! Youre a ‘do nothing b!tch’

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Okay, you changed my mind. Dont suck my dick please.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        You heard his sister was better too ?

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Thats my girl youre talking about!!!

      • Anthony Mason

        Lol!

      • Anthony Mason

        You don’t want it with me bruh….Just keep it moving….

      • NoGoBoi

        I spoke and my stance hasn’t changed. Move “summin”

      • NoGoBoi

        I don’t care about ur cousin being killed by the police, nor do i care about u or u being so called “poor.” we have thousands of our black youth dying everyday by the hands of a police officer, so fuk ur pitty party. For any of u white folks, mixed or any other race that can’t speak up, open and honestly about what’s going on, fuk y’all. Trying to tell me about u being poor, bitccch u white, in the united states, if u poor u just lazy and if u grew up poor, ur parents weren’t shhhhhiiittt! That’s some facts for yo azz. Also, 2 tell another man 2 suck ur dicc shows how fuked up in the head ur race is, y’all always been on that gay shit smh.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        If you don’t care about my cousin then f*** you and yours. I don’t respect a God damn f****** living thing that doesn’t respect me. And you say some shit like that as if no black EVER said “Suck my dick” in the history of telling people to suck dick. You wrong for that. Oh yeah… SUCK MY DICK !

      • NoGoBoi

        Like i said… Fuk u and ur cousin and any other person who thinks from ur perspective. Point, blank, period.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        Like I probably should have said the first time. You’re an idiot. You don’t speak for black people. Thank God the overwhelming majority of them aren’t as f****** stupid as you. If they were, I WOULD be racist. Kill yourself

      • NoGoBoi

        U r, u just hide it behind subliminal lines and fallacies. I read a few of ur comments and every last one is from a white males perspective. Hints, u only have tunnel vision. U can’t take being called out on it, so u retreat. 1st u started with the disrespectful comment to homeboys post… 2nd, u get ur feelings hurt when i called u out on ur bullshhhiittt and resort to gay comments like y’all do… 3rd, u try to play the, “i feel y’all pain and where y’all come from” role, acting like the hardships were the same… 4th, u try and play the victim role, like y’all usually do. Like i said b4, fuk y’all, straight like that.

        Comments like this… “You don’t speak for black people. Thank God the overwhelming majority of them aren’t as f****** stupid as you”. This shows how fuked up in the head u r and how u truly feel. Ol’ Puss azz

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        I don’t know. Having to identify your cousin when half of his face is blown off was pretty hard. I’m sure you’ve been through worse though.

      • NoGoBoi

        Now u resort back to the pitty party smh. Tell that shhhhiittttt to oscar grant daughter, mike brown’s parents, trayvon martin parents, eric garner’s wife and kids, ezell fords family, john crawfords daughter… Should i continue? Fuk y’all boi. Straight like that.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        I’d like to tell it to all of them. They’re probably some of the only people who’d relate to it.

      • NoGoBoi

        I’m done talkin 2 u smh. Clown

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        Good. I hope you’ve learned something.

      • Anthony Mason

        Lmao!!!!….

      • Anthony Mason

        Good because nobody wants to hear you right now….

        It’s the middle of the week. Find something to be happy about….

      • NoGoBoi

        Like i said, move “summin”

      • Anthony Mason

        Move what? / I know some white dudes from my old hood that will get your whole crew bucked / you are lame/ Nobody gives two f***s / you got some screws loose bruh / wuuh saaa/ you are soft beef / osso buco…..

      • B.U.

        You identify with Forrest Gump, buddy. Never forget that.

    • bluelight74

      Everyone wants to leech and be a parasite without paying the cost.

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        Everyone wants to ride, no one wants to die

  • He sure likes to talk a lot but when it’s time to speak on a matter of value…..CRICKETS

  • ursocalledgod

    another artist that stands for nothing but making money and entertaining. that shyt happened in your hometown and you say nothing? even when they beg you to? I realize you aint black but come on lil fella. you have a voice that a lot of the homies and positive black people from there don’t. to not use it screams cowardice…

    • Larry Sandwiches

      Except he is black…not that skin color matters.

      • ursocalledgod

        He’s biracial.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        ….not that it matters

      • ursocalledgod

        True

  • DrakeDoesn’tWrite

    I heard dude talk one time and knew what he was about. He would have his black half surgically removed if he could. Forget everything else. THIS IS HAPPENING IN YOUR CITY! Even that non-writing ass fraud Drake has made some attempts in his music and he’s sucked enough d*ck to be higher up on the totem pole than this clown.

  • The Legendary Troll

    The headline is misleading. Logic only stated he makes music for the protesters when they need a break from reality.

  • So someone tells the truth and he gets stick, someone talks shit by pulling wool over your eyes and is hailed as a king?

    I don’t know about you guys but I respect him for saying what he truly feels as opposed to peeps that chant the slogan ” black lives matter” and treat another black person worse than human.

    Some of these rappers / peeps that chant “black lives matters” are the same ones that’ll will shoot another black person dead over petty beef.

    I seldom say this but, GTFOH, backward thinking peeps.

    All lives matter if you ask me, we’re human after all.

    • jswang

      No, black lives matter. All lives aren’t getting shot out on the streets for nothing. It’s blacks that are getting killed by these police officers. We are the only race that tell ourselves all lives matter when we are the ones getting killed. You have to shine the spotlight on black lives because it’s important that people know who’s out here getting killed by some ignorant police who fear our race for whatever reason.
      Artist have a platform to speak and people will listen. It’s his prerogative not to but that’s something he’ll have to deal with internally for not doing it. If you’re going to rep the culture in your rhymes you should stand up for it. That’s what’s wrong with our entertainers these days. They have no guts!

  • Celz

    If Macklemore and Tarantino can go on the record about what’s happening in your city.. I’m just going to stop.. And news flash lil home.. Ain’t no such thing as half black..

  • Celz

    This lame ass be trying to rap like he kicking knowledge.. His shyt still be coming off shallow..

  • bklyn representa

    he has his reasons for not getting involved because lets keep it real if he didn’t tell anybody he was half black everybody would have thought he was a dope ass white emcee
