Complete with unbridled lyricism, top-notch production and conceptual brilliance to tie it all together, Everybody is a hallmark release that further solidifies Logic solid standing in hip-hop.

Keeping track of whether Logic's writing from his own or someone else's vantage can be a challenge, but one doesn't need to be that familiar with his work to realize that this contains some of his most personal rhymes.

‘Everybody’ is a great album and although it re-hashes the topic of race, it does make some very valid statements on the issue. It has great production throughout and interesting narrative devices – even if you haven’t listened to ‘The Incredible True Story’.


Hip Hop’s gatekeepers will say that timing and the repetitive nature of Logic’s lyrics hurts Everybody but for Logic’s younger core fan base, especially those going through struggles of their own, his latest work will be the catharsis to keep them from plunging off the deep end.


Logic’s Everybody is the latest in a string of recent rap releases that consider race and perception—Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN., J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only, and Joey Bada$$’s All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ among them. But unlike those records, which are self-aware and mindful of their surroundings, this is nearly clueless and without subtlety.

A.V. Club

“Amiable” is sort of the operant word for Everybody, which, like Joey Badass’ All-Amerikkan Bada$$, strives to create a trenchant pop-rap polemic for the Trump era, but unlike that record—or any other record ever, for that matter—frequently gets lost in minutes-long spoken-word segues in which Neil DeGrasse Tyson speaks as a benevolent god about the nature of self-worth. That stuff is about as bad as a thing in our vast cosmos can be.

The Needle Drop
Logic's new album puts the "mess" in "message."
The 405
In general, the album feels like a grab-bag of 'button issues', others' ideas, and content truly desperate to bear high-minded importance, but proves little more than Logic has clearly heard some Kendrick. More simply put, its tactic of sticking to simple broad-strokes – and constantly beating his listener over the head with them – reads like BuzzFeed: The Album.

The All Lives Matter of rap music


The concept of having an album represent everybody in the world; every race, religion, colour, creed and sexual orientation represented and given a point of view in this singular album is certainly an ambitious one, but unfortunately one that seems destined for failure. Logic's central message of peace, love and positivity is in full force on Everybody, with lyrics discussing systemic racism in America, his issues with growing up and being biracial... and another song about that... another one ... read more


This new Logic LP reminds me of my highschool essays - Rushed, confused, and lacking any central meaning.


The music ain't even bad here. It's the absolute failure of the message and concept of the album that really bothers me. Like the concept is promising but the execution is just not good. You try to make a album for EVERYBODY and yet the album mostly talks about black and white issues and just american issues mostly. Idk man I don't think this is a album for everybody ya know. I doubt people in forgein countries could relate to this one bit. There really isn't any song lgbt people could relate ... read more




Logic's album of trying to spread equality is very messy & inconsistent to the point where you worry about the inconsistency rather than the actual message of the album.
