Logic has addressed the recent backlash to his viral cover of Ice Cube's 1992 hit single "It Was A Good Day." The rapper spoke about the negative reaction in response to a fan on TikTok, who asked him to make an entire album featuring covers of songs from the 1990s. In the TikTok, Logic revealed that he got support from Ice Cube himself afterward.
"You know it's funny you should say that," Logic said in the post. "Um, it's funny you should say that because I thought about doing that. Wouldn't that be cool? Everybody's all pissed off at me because I did a fucking Ice Cube cover. Meanwhile I texted Ice Cube and he's like, 'Man, keep on doing you brotha,' like what the... who gives a fuck. Who gives a fuck."

He added: "But you know what would be great? Is if, you're right. I should do a whole fucking album, and just do a whole album of fucking hard ass 90s records and call it Logic Greatest Hits, and get all them paid, and publishing, and take care of all the legends and the goat's and the great's from the 90s. And fucking do a covers album, who gives a fuck.. whaaat."
As for the hate Logic received, many were unhappy with the heavy use of guitars in his version. One of the most prominent voices to complain about the cover was Joe Budden. Speaking on his podcast, Budden called on Logic to retire from music after hearing the song. "Logic, I beg of you, I'm pleading with you: please join me in retirement," he said. "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! You are the worst, yo! You are really, really bad!" Check out Logic's comments about the situation on TikTok below.
