Logic Channels 'The Boondocks' In Promo Visual For New Album 'College Park'
Logic has withdrawn his previous announcement of retirement, promoted upcoming album College Park with a 2-minute animated visual.
Logic is taking himself out of retirement with upcoming album College Park. On Tuesday (January 10), the Maryland native dropped a 2-minute animated clip reminiscent of Adult Swim classic The Boondocks to promote College Park, starting with the rapper preparing for a show at "The House of Sound." At the beginning of the video, Logic's new track "Insipio" is played before him and his crew encounter a convenience store robbery.
Later, the Vinyl Days emcee appears on a radio show before its revealed that the animation takes place in 2011, the same year that his second mixtape, Young Sinatra, was released. The College Park trailer also teases the album's guest list, including RZA, Redman, Joey Bada$$, Norah Jones, and Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show.
College Park follows Logic's 2021 mixtapes Planetory Destruction and Bobby Tarantino III, and 2022 LP Vinyl Days, all which released after his 2020 album No Pressure, originally intended to be his final project.
“I just wanted to retire because I’m over it man," he said in 2020. "Not even in a negative way, I’m just over it. I love music and I’m gonna continue to make music on my own. I can’t not just make music. It’s a journal for me. It’s how I express myself. It’s how I heal, but with Logic, I’m stepping away."
Recently, the rapper also announced that he's scrapping his J Dilla album with unreleased beats from the late Detroit producer and rapper.
“I did a whole J Dilla album but that’s another story for another time,” Logic said on Twitch. “And it was nothing with the estate… everything was fine, I was like, ‘I’m straight.’ Like, I recorded this whole J Dilla album with all unreleased beats and s*** and I was like, ‘I’m OK.’ I’d rather see Boldy [James] do it, he’s gonna f*****’ kill it. The fact that I could even rap on it was really good. And who knows, maybe it’ll see the light of day one day. We’ll see.”
