It’s been just a week since Logic released his highly anticipated album Everybody, and he’s went as far as selling new merchandise for an affordable $25 (which includes a digital copy of the album), and announcing a nationwide tour that brings along Joey Bada$$ and Big Lenbo. As a hip-hop enthusiast and a ‘woke’ citizen of the United States, Everybody’s Tour is the greatest collaboration of rappers this year, thus far.

Everybody is a body of work that focuses on Logic’s slogan – peace, love and positivity – while tackling his struggles as a bi-racial person in America. It features Juicy J, Alessia Cara, Khalid, and J. Cole to name a few, and gives everybody a glimpse of the Ratt Pack leader’s viewpoint of racial discrimination from both whites and blacks.
Pair this album with Joey Bada$$’ overshadowed (reason being it got released in the midst of several projects like Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN.), yet amazing project that tackles Joey’s views of American society from the perspective of a black person, All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, you’re getting one hell of a political statement from two of hip-hop’s most underrated lyricists in a time when America is in turmoil.
Additionally, Everybody’s Tour will feature Ratt Pack rapper Big Lenbo, who was introduced in Logic’s 2nd studio album The Incredible True Story on ‘Young Jesus.’ Since then, Big Lenbo has released singles from ‘Stupid,’ and ‘Ice Cold’ featuring Logic, and has an upcoming album Strange Days with no release date.
Let’s not forget the fact that Big Lenbo is also of Latino/a descent. Talking with hip-hop enthusiasts who are of Latino/a descent, there’s a stigma that follows rappers of synonymous roots, explaining that they try to ‘sound’ black. This tour looks to break that stigma.
Peace, love, and positivity is what Logic went for in his past tours, and the Everybody’s Tour unquestionably has the will to do the same. Tickets will go on sale for the general public on May 16th at 10:00 AM PDT. Presales will begin on May 15th through All About the Fans Store, Live Nation, and APE.
