Everything Logic Did Last Month When You Were Busy Listening To His Music

What's happening with the Maryland rapper who's been taking the world by storm?

Nearly a month after releasing his “Bobby Tarantino II” mixtape — see my review of the project here — and making the shocking announcement that he and his spouse, Jessica Andrea, were getting a divorce, Maryland rapper, Logic, may be on his way to an entirely new level of fame — one that contains rap beef and, possibly, some eventual bad press as a result.

While Logic has been around for some years now, many rap music fans didn’t know who he was until his hit single, “1-800-273-8255,” rose to the top of the charts — then Logic, himself, followed almost right after.

He went from being a rapper who was living a very quiet, simple life to being known as well as almost anybody in today’s rap game, but a hit single wasn’t the only reason for that.

Logic dropped his mixtape, “Bobby Tarantino II,” a month ago and since then, it has already peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, though it currently sits at number six.

It’s pretty rare to see a mixtape reach the top spot on the charts so that’s an impressive feat accomplished by Logic — I just hope this newfound fame doesn’t go to his head.

While this month has held a number of successes for Logic, he has also suffered a heartbreaking failure — both for himself and his fans — when he announced that he and his wife, Jessica Andrea, were getting a divorce after two years of marriage.

The couple, though I guess you can’t call them that anymore, made their split public on Instagram just days after rumors speculating the divorce began spreading all over social media.

There have been plenty of rumors going around saying that Logic wanted the divorce because he didn’t want to be tied down in a marriage with the notoriety he has finally achieved and would just prefer to be single, but I’m not so sure it’s as simple as that.

Yes, Logic is insanely famous now and would probably like to show love to his groupies after performing shows, but according to both Logic and Andrea, being faithful was not the issue.

They “just didn’t work out” and are better off in more of a platonic relationship.

Perhaps a relationship consisting of two individual music careers and tours puts too much strain on a relationship — or just makes it feel like there isn’t even a relationship at all.

One thing we do know for sure, though, is that Logic is single for the first time in a while, and it’ll be very interesting to see if his music will differ from the projects released when he was still married.

On “Bobby Tarantino II,” we may have a caught a taste of this “new Logic” as he got more sexual with his lyrics at times and we even saw some anger come out as he addressed his haters on a number of songs off of the mixtape.

One of the people believed to be a part of the “haters” that Logic was referring to is Joyner Lucas — though Logic denies he was talking about Lucas, there is no one else hating on him on a grander scale.

I have personally followed this rap beef for many months and, up until recently, I was completely on Logic’s side.

The quick way of telling the tale of this rap drama, which has been going on for a little over a year now, is that Logic and Joyner were both on “Siracha” together, a song that was released on Tech N9ne’s album, “The Storm,” and Joyner felt as though Logic wanted no part of this collaboration.

Joyner gave the details behind “Siracha” and more when he appeared on Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” (before Joe Budden left so you may still find it entertaining).

Logic has yet to confirm if any of what Joyner said is true or not — and I really hope it’s not because it would make me think very differently when it comes to the kind of artist that I think he is — but Joyner Lucas has definitely made this an interesting beef regardless with the release of songs like his “Mask Off” and “Look Alive” remixes, where he made it very obvious he was coming for Logic.

Whatever the truth is behind Logic’s divorce or his rap beef, I just hope he continues to do what he does best: rap and preach “peace, love and positivity.” You can hear “Bobby Tarantino II” on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and more so be sure to check it out!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
