Los Angeles – Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as the Logic to fast rap enthusiasts everywhere, recently popped up on an episode of Dan Harmon’s “Harmontown” podcast and explained what the title of his forthcoming album AfricAryaN means. Growing up as a biracial male, he’s experienced first-hand the discrimination and stereotyping that often comes along with it.
“Scientifically proven, the first man and woman [are] from Africa, and over time, culturally evolving into a lighter and lighter and much more fairer skin,” he said. “So the album is going to be called ‘AfricAryaN.’ And it’s about me being black and white and seeing life from two sides.”
He went on to say, “It’s about me being black and white, and seeing life from two sides, and about that cultural evolution and how you can go from the darkest of skin to the lightest of skin,” but apparently failed to grasp “cultural evolution” has very little to do with skin complexion. Twitter, naturally, had a field day with this. Below are a few reactions Noisey’s original article on Logic generated.

Logic’s last album, Bobby Tarantino, was released back in July of this year.
AfricAryaN is expected to arrive sometime in early 2017, as Logic told HipHopDX on Twitter.
