This Week's Album
Young Sinatra:Welcome to Forever by Logic
After receiving hype from his signing to Def Jam or being on the XXL Freshman 2013 list, Logic released his fourth mixtape Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever. Is Logic or the mixtape worth the hype? Let's find out.
I was pleasantly surprised by this tape. I only heard about Logic through r/hiphopheads and a lot of people there liked his new tape, so I decided to check out the hype... and it was worth it. This is a really solid mixtape and I hope for good things in this guy's future because he really deserves it. He had a lot of shit happen in his life as a kid/teen and to see him rise up and become a success, I'm really glad for the guy. Anyways, back to the tape itself. For the most part, Logic has a really good beat selection, great flow, and decent lyrics (nothing too special, but not annoying *cough Macklemore cough*). There lies some problems though, mostly just kind of small things, but need to be addressed. Corniness is one problem. And as an expert of being a corny cac, you definitely have those moments of corn on the tape, but that's something that happens with a lot of white rappers (*cough Lil Dicky cough*). Also, the tape suffers from going on longer than it should. He could cut a couple of tracks or maybe make the tape feel like one long song/story (see good kid m.A.A.d city). Other than that, really solid tape and can't wait to see what Logic does in the future. I'm gonna give this album an 8/10.
THINGS I LIKED: Nice beat selection, good use of features, good flow, decent lyrics, oh, and the "Randolph Returns" skit was kinda funny.
THINGS I HATED: Some corny lyrics and the album being a little too long.
STAND OUT SONGS: Welcome to Forever, Roll Call, Break it Down, Feel Good, Walk On By, Ballin, Common Logic Midnight Marauder, Just A Man
OVERALL SCORE: 8/10
