"I Don't Wanna Die Today, I Don't Wanna Die"

Few artists truly appreciate and harness the power they have in their voice. It's easy to dismiss the messaging in a lot of Hip Hop tracks because "it goes hard" or "it's dope", but for every ignorant Hip Hop track there are inspirational tracks like Logic's 1-800-273-8255. What's the significance of the phone number you ask? Well, that's the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline that Logic decided to make the song title in hope that it would make a difference in someone's life. Before you listen to the track, please watch his explanation of the story he told on the track.

The use of different perspectives on the song escaped me the first few listens, but given the amount of impact it could have on people, it's genius. Chances are we'll all find ourselves in one of the roles he detailed in the track either fending off our own thoughts or helping someone else step back from the edge. I gotta admit, I'm extremely impressed by the amount of thought and care Logic poured into the creation of this track. He's truly setting the bar how to use your voice as a positive weapon in the fight for social good. For those wanting to support Logic and his pursuit to help Everybody, you can do that by grabbing a copy of his album when it drops tomorrow...#18002738255
