Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Logic’s fifth studio album, came during a time of great creative productivity for the MC. Just two months before the album’s release, Logic unveiled Supermarket, which served as a soundtrack for a novel of the same name. That album was announced as an alt-rock detour for the artist, and the surprise release Confessions of a Dangerous Mind quelled any fears that his diehard fan base may have had about any long-term dabbling in the rock genre. The album features rap heavy hitters like Eminem, YBN Cordae, G-Eazy, Wiz Khalifa, Will Smith, and Gucci Mane, in addition to vocals from Logic’s dad, Smokey Hall, who is credited on the album as “My Dad.” Though looser in structure than some of his headier concept albums, Logic spends the runtime of Confessions of a Dangerous Mind reckoning with the dangers of social media. He took its title from the 2002 George Clooney film of the same name, which deals with the fictional adventures of game show host Chuck Barris. Logic expands this story, examining how people can hide behind facades to build worlds around lies. On the Eminem-assisted “Homicide,” Logic jumps at the chance to go bar for bar with one of rap’s greatest. He mimics Em’s signature rapid-fire flow, spitting, “Yeah, there's a time and a place/But if you ain't comin' with the illest of raps/Callin' yourself the greatest alive/ Then you don't deserve to do that/ No, no, oh no, no, please do not do that.” The rap game has been infiltrated by crooks and frauds, hiding behind fake narratives on bogus social media pages, and Logic is calling the deceptive practice out. On the sharp and incisive “clickbait,” the rapper looks at the dangers of addiction, examining fictitious worlds and the way internet users can get hooked on keeping up with online personas. He raps, “All these comments got me lost in my mind/All these thoughts that I'm having are not mine/I always post that I'm having a good time/So my life looks perfect online.” It’s a vicious cycle—one that Logic warns against repeatedly on Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.
