Logic – Cocaine (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)
“Cocaine” is the 11th track on Logic’s brand new fifth studio album ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’ released on May 10, 2019.
Logic teased a snippet of this audio in late 2018 on his Instagram stories and has stirred up quite the controversy since. However, the song is barely about any white powder, but more on white’s oppression of the blacks.
Logic does name drop some of the devastating drugs that have spread like cancer in society, killing and damaging millionss of youth. From cocaine to Molly or MDMA to Percocet (a drug taken to relieve moderate to severe pain) have all infected the society.
“Cocaine” does raise a lot of noise in support of the African American community in the world. Logic mentions ‘Freaknik’ party held annually for African American high-school and university students in the form of spring break in Atlanta. The party was stopped in 2010 and made a return in 2019. Logic also mentions Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino as a formidable figure in African American cultural icons.
In the second verse of “Cocaine,” Logic goes much harder at the injustice caused by the streets of America towards the African American populations. He talks about how the society inherently wants to see the Blacks fail. Then later, the society wants to jail them up because the Blacks turned to other means of living. As per Logic, the entire system is broken, with no green lights on a fix. So prayers are required!
