Not A Good Day For Logic

Logic is catching heat for his cover of Ice Cube's "It Was A Good Day", facing negative criticism from online users, Joe Budden, and Cube's son.

Logic recently released a cover of Ice Cube's "It Was A Good Day" online, with his rendition of the song putting more of an emphasis on vocalizations rather than the lyrics of the track. However, the Bobby Tarantino rapper is now facing backlash over his piece across social media, including from the likes of podcaster Joe Budden and Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr.

Many online have commented on Logic's biracial in their criticism of the cover, claiming that his complexion bars him from being allowed to use the N-word and his decision to do so as well as speak on the Black experience serve as examples of him co-opting Black identity.

O'Shea Jackson Jr., Ice Cube's son, had a more personal gripe with Logic's cover, however.

In a tweet referring to the cover, Jackson stated "I respect Logic. I think he can rap. And that’s all I really need...But bruh… if [I] ever hear you sing about my mother again… it’s gone be a misunderstanding lmaoooo."

Jackson's comment references a lyric in the cover by his father: "Got a beep from Kim, and she can f*ck all night."

Others, like podcast host Joe Budden, had harsher words for the College Park rapper.

Budden's response to the cover follows a history of the podcaster's jabs at the rapper, with the former calling on Logic to "Never step near a recording device again! Throw your phone in the ocean! Be allergic to microphones! Promise your fans nothing! Don’t go to the studio ever again!"

He continued: "Let me make my problem with Logic very clear, because people be confused. Logic is just not himself. I just think that Logic should be himself. He panders to the Black community every other second. Well, that’s the problem with panders, is that they always gotta find something new to pander to."
