Joyner Lucas and Logic have a murky history. Over the past year, Lucas has accused the bespectacled rapper stealing his concept for his suicide prevention anthem, “1-800-273-8255,” and blasted him for his work on Tech N9ne’s “Sriracha.” Now, it seems Logic might have finally fired back, at least that’s what Twitter is hypothesizing.
After Logic dropped his Bobby Tarantino II mixtape on Friday (March 9), several bars in the song “Yuck” raised a few eyebrows.
“Talkin’ shit ’bout Logic, I never respond/ I’ll let success talk, ’cause a word advice/ More achievements for yourself and less talk/ Cats beef with Logic, yeah, they prayin’ I respond/If I ever did, I dead you in this game with no respawn, Peace, love, and positivity that’s all I want with you/ But you push the issue ’cause I give you more press than your publicist could ever get you.
“Hell nah, fuck rap, fuck beef, anyone that hate me, I wish you success/ I wish you look in the mirror and ask yourself why you suppressed/ If feelings self-hatred that you wan’ project on me/ Bet if I never picked up the mic then we might be homies/ But you jealous, you look at my life and you feel envy/ Constantly comparing yourself to me and feel empty/ Most people that don’t fuck with me ain’t ever shook my hand.”
Joyner denied dissing Logic on his Future’s “Mask Off” remix last May but labeled him “a corny guy” three months later. Then, on Joyner’s “Look Alive” freestyle, he seemed to have dropped a subliminal aimed at the Everybody artist.
Once fans started to dissect the lyrics to “Yuck,” multiple Twitter users came to the conclusion that the song is, in fact, a diss track aimed at Lucas.
