In October, Logic announced his next album was going to be called AfricAryan.
“Scientifically proven, the first man and woman [are] from Africa, and over time, culturally evolving into a lighter and lighter and much more fairer skin. So the album is going to be called 'AfricAryan'. It’s about me being black and white," he explained at the time.The title and Logic's clunky description rubbed some folks the wrong way.
We now know Logic's third album is no longer the titled AfricAryan. Yesterday he announced the May 5th drop is titled Everybody. He explains why in an interview with Hard Knock TV.
“Yeezy changed his album like 16,000 times so it is what it is. For me, I really stand behind what that title means,” He explains. “The whole album leads up to that one song (AfricAryan) which is just to talk about I feel like I’m pulled in one or other direction. Black folks who don’t know that I’m mixed will treat me like I’m this racist person. As I created the album, it became more less about me and more about everybody else. It became about other peoples struggles. I discussed race on this album because I was so scared to do it before. I then realized that sometimes it's the things that we’re most scared to do that is going to help others the most.”
