Last year Logic talked being receiving tons of online hate after dropping his sucide prevention song "1-800-273-8255.”
At one point, the DMV rapper walked away from his career because of it.
He's now promoting his new Vinyl Days album and chopped it up with Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe. During the interview, Logic talked about online hate once more and why he took a brief pause.
“It’s difficult to see people tell you they hope your family dies, and your baby’s ugly, and X, Y, Z, and you deal with that every time you look on the internet,” he explained, according to AllHipHop.“I know, it’s messed up, man. Yeah, as human beings. It’s insane to know that a decade ago this isn’t how the internet was. It was actually a much nicer place."
"There were still trolls and stuff," he continued. "But everything now, how people even discuss or talk about music, ‘Yeah, this was mid.’ What does that even mean? Have an opinion. If somebody’s talking about an artist, ‘Yeah, this is mid. This is kind of ass' ... I’m like, ‘Is that how you talk to your mom?’ When your mom gives you breakfast, 'Yeah, Mom…' Who does that? So, I think for me, that’s something that I wanted to do. I wanted to step away from the negativity. Not like I’m trying to hide from it and this and that, but just like, ‘Dude, I need a break.'”
