I love logic, but YSIV, supermarket, and Coadm were so ass

This is so deserved. Logic has made an effort to reach out to every person no matter what race, religion, color, creed, or sexual orientation they belong to. If he is ever kicked off this #1 spot the rap game will have lost. Kendrick is the better rapper, but Logic has what Kendrick doesn't, a personal relationship with every single fan that listens to his music. I've never felt better than when I'm listening to Logic. Even if it's watching his gaming channel or anything of that nature, you just feel like he's your friend and you've known him for years. Just a great guy man.

Best rapper in the game. Its close between him and Kendrick but I believe Logic has a slightly better catalogue. His best albums are: Under Pressure, Young SInatra: Welcome to forever, and The Incredible True Story. Not to mention other good projects: Bobby Tarantino, Young Sinatra: Undeniable and Everybody. - m18230
