Logic Replaces Eminem & Goes Berserk On A New Remix With Royce 5’9 (Audio)
Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlists with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.
Last week, Royce 5’9 released Book Of Ryan, one of the best Rap albums of the year and the best of Royce’s storied career. With the LP, came “Caterpillar,” a fiery reminder from Royce and Eminem that they are still two of the best MCs in the world. The theme of the song is that, often in Hip-Hop, not enough respect is paid by the current generation to those who came before them.
Just over a week after “Caterpillar’s” release, Royce has now shared the remix and Logic takes the place of Eminem, adding a blistering verse. From the very outset, the Maryland MC makes it crystal clear he has a few bones to pick, kicking things off with “Sold a quarter million records in my first week, and BET still don’t want to let me perform. Maybe it’s ’cause my pigment. Maybe I’m being ignorant. Maybe it’s all a figment of my imagination…” However, Logic quickly shifts to a message of positivity where he champions Hip-Hop as a culture with the power to unify people of all races, and says “I just want to be remembered as a good person, dispersing a message of hope while the world worsen.”
In addition to new music from Royce 5’9, the playlist features recent music from Nickel’s group PRhyme, Phonte, Kanye West, J. Cole, Drake, Logic, Kendrick Lamar, Black Milk, Eminem, Lute, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Statik Selektah, Brent Faiyaz, Freddie Gibbs, Arin Ray, CyHi The Prynce, Saba, Scarface, Rapsody, Sylvan LaCue, Evidence, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Big K.R.I.T., Nipsey Hussle, and a host of others.
#bonusbeat: In a new interview, Royce opens up about the clarity given to him by sobriety, his focus on music and family, getting “murdered” on Caterpillar and more.
