Late October Music: Defies logic with Rubik and rapping skills

Mura Masa, Sylvan Esson and Big Thief complete a strong line-up

Logic, a 27-year-old rapper from Maryland famous for solving Rubik’s cubes on stage, has just released his third album, Everybody, a densely-packed 70-minute album tackling a myriad of social and political hot topics.

“Everybody is about mental health, domestic violence, mass shootings, drug abuse, racism, indigenous peoples, anxiety, depression, suicide, happiness, money, education, upper and middle and lower class, fear, hate, acceptance, fame, religion, childhood, individuality, peace, love and positivity,” applauds Rolling Stone. So maybe ‘Everything’ would have been a better title.

In case you haven’t guessed, this tour and album is for ‘everybody’, as it will unify all individuals by recognising the flaws of our world and the power of the human condition. And the logic dictates that everyone should buy it.
