I have come across four rappers with the name Logical, one is from the UK and the other three are from America. This particular Logical is from Philadelphia and here releases his five-track EP debut as a taster before he releases his first album 'Food For Thought'. The first song "Formal Introduction" gives the listener a bit of a biography ("I got a family that know me better than my relatives/A grand mum who loves me better than my mother did") which shows you some insights into his life journal. His flow reminds me of another rapper from America, the mainstream's Common. "Words I Never Said" reflects on his past with clever wordplay, "Threw all my tapes in the trash from Michael Jackson to Usher/You know I got it bad." The backing track includes soft rock and hip-hop and there is also a reverb effect on one of the last verses which unfortunately doesn't really work. "Role Model" carries a message that "everybody needs a role model" over an electric guitar and a lively piano, where Logical lays down his deep thoughts on a banging rap beat. The production is of a high standard and this is an above average EP which is well worth buying if you can find it.
