Logic — Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Logic is back with some “Confessions.” The Maryland rapper follows last year’s YSIV with the official release of his introspective new track, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” As usual, frequent collaborator 6ix sits behind the boards for this one.
Over soulful production, Young Sinatra raps about comparisons in the rap game. “They always compare, they always compare me to others / And try to pit me up against all my brothers,” he complains. “Now why you think so many rappers be overdosin’ at the crib? / ‘Cause people just won’t let ’em live.”
Taking this further, Logic raps about the names he is often compared to: “‘You’ll never be Kenny / You’ll never be better than Drizzy or Cole / You’re losing your hair, you’re too fucking old’ / Yeah, these are the comments I’m readin’ on Twitter right now / They make me depressed and they pullin’ me down.”
Originally released as a teaser on Twitter, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” is the title track off Logic’s sixth studio album, according to the song’s music video. It is unclear when this LP will drop but the teaser claims that it’s “coming soon.”
“Confessions” arrives just days before Logic’s Supermarket novel hits retailers on March 26. Listen to his “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” below.

Jaquees feat. Lil Baby — “Your Peace”
Jacquees, who raised eyebrows last year when he proclaimed to be “The King of R&B, joins forces with Lil Baby on his newest single, “Your Peace.” Over $K’s production, the duo sing and rap about romantic relationships and serenity.
“I can’t find one who knows how to treat a man,” Jacquees laments on the track. “I’m just really trying to understand / Who really trying to know who I am / Right now, I can’t even trust my friends.”
Elsewhere, Lil Baby sing-raps about his own issues in a complicated relationship. “Everything I get, you get a piece,” he explains. “Why you can’t sit back and be my peace / Neck was looking dry, I bought a piece / Complaining about her smile, I bought her teeth / She can’t buy her own bags, I bought her three.”
Jacquees is currently working on Round 2, which he says is “OTW.” Listen to “Your Peace” below.
Megan Thee Stallion — “Sex Talk”
Rising newcomer Megan Thee Stallion keeps people talking with the release of her newest single, “Sex Talk.” After creating a major buzz with “Big Ole Freak,” “Freak Nasty,” and a series of freestyles, Megan keeps things raunchy.

Recently, Megan spoke out against critics who are quick to point out her sex talk on records. “You let the boys come up in here and talk about how they gon’ run a train on all our friends and they want some head and they want to shoot everything up, and they want to do drugs,” she told Rolling Stone. “Well, we should be able to go equally as hard. I don’t want to hear none of that, ‘That’s offensive!’ or, ‘All she talk about is pussy.’”
