Logic’s “Black Spiderman” Casts A Vote for Glover

While Logic’s forthcoming third studio album Everybody does share some distinct similarities in album art with Freddie Gibbs‘ latest release, the message of unity and diversity being conveyed by the Maryland rapper is entirely different.

After releasing the album’s title track “Everybody” two weeks ago, Logic dropped a second single on us today. “Black Spiderman”, the piano-driven track is produced by DJ Khalil, 6ix and the MC himself featuring Damian Lemar Hudson along with some feel-good visuals directed by Andy Hines.

In the video Logic speaks passionately about his mixed-race heritage, posted up atop a parade float on what looks to be the sunniest day of the year. Accompanied by a gospel choir and some soothing piano keys, the artist proceeds to rap his ass off in a tune that’s sure to feel right at home on any springtime playlist. The track also makes a bold statement with the lyrics “Spiderman should be black, I vote for Glover instead” a reference to the upcoming film Spiderman: Homecoming in which the Atlanta star will play a part—though it’s not yet clear which.

The liner notes read “This song is the celebration of unity and a world built upon division. People say things like I don’t see color, I just see people. To which I retour you should see color, you should see a black man, a white woman, a brown little girl or any other color of the rainbow.”

Logic’s Everybody will be available May 5th, pre-order it here.
