Logic Compares Drake to Tupac With 'Incredible True Story'

(Radio.com) Just ahead of Logic's Late Night performance, he stopped by Play.It's Rap Radar Podcast to spread the word about his latest set, The Incredible True Story, and the tales behind it.

The Maryland-based rapper used to be frequently compared to Drake; his sophomore set (released in November) sees him establishing his own voice a bit more, but Logic used Drake to illustrate a point about rap fans who refuse to embrace the new.

This came up when Logic was discussing comments made by Vince Staples to Time about his preference for post-90s hip-hop. 'The '90s get a lot of credit, I don't really know why," Staples said, while giving Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac credit for their contraptions.

"I get where he's [Vince] is coming from," Logic said, before quoting a line from "City of Stars" off The Incredible True Story. "F- all these cats on the internet/ I love hip-hop and I hate hip-hop / 'Cause people who love Tupac hope Drake gets shot/ 'Cause he raps about money and b--es for heaven's sake / 'Pac did the same s-, just on a drum break"

"That's not to discredit what Tupac stood for," Logic explains. "He literally changed hip-hop. He helped change this world. It's not like everything he was talking about [was] 'I got my bitch'' He's got 'Keep Your Head Up' and songs about his mother and single women. At the same time, Drake comes with heartfelt s- like 'Too Much' and so many more records.

"But just because Drake might have a different vibe or sound, let's not pretend that Tupac didn't touch on a lot of the club happy-going aspects that Drake is doing currently." Read more and listen to entire podcast and watch his performance on the Tonight Show here.
