Hard Knock Tv's Nick Huff Barili sits down with Logic for his first in-depth interview about his new album EVERYBODY. You have all been asking for this one and here is it!!! Hard Knock Tv EXCLUSIVE! Logic breaks down "Acceptance" aka the hidden track on Everybody by J Cole. Logic and Nick actually bonded over their mutual admiration for Cole the first time they meet. In this video Logic recalls how their friendship has grown over the years since meeting his idol J Cole at No ID's bday party, to playing Dead Presidents 3 for him at the studio ( where 6ix snapped a picture of Cole when he wasn’t watching lol) to running into him at festivals over the years to playing the new album for him to having Cole write him a personal voice note rap about his reaction to their conversations and what a dream come true it was for his idol to be on his album in such a personal manner.
"I said, 'Bruh, you are my Hov. You are my Jay Z. I waited outside for you. You're the only rap concert I've ever been to.' I told him this. Ever. Ever. To this day. I've only ever been to a J. Cole concert that I went to. That I wanted to go see. When I told him that, he was like, 'Bro, this is crazy.' I was like, 'You don't understand. What you wrote, it could make me emotional right now. Like, I'm trying to keep it together. It is beautiful, it is poetic, and it's just what I needed as a man, and I'm going to be honest, you can say no, no problem, but I believe this is perfect, just like this, not on the record, not me and you but this. And this isn't about the public, and this isn't about trying to milk it and do all this other shit. Like, I'm not going to tell anybody the shit like this. The die-hard fans are going to see this and that's who it's for and obviously your community. I was like, 'I'm not going to put your name on it, I'm not going to market you, I'm going to make it a secret because this is about us and I need you to know this is so full circle for me.' And I was like, 'So I'm just going to ask, would you please let me use it.' He says, 'What I'ma say, no? After a speech like that? What the fuck I'ma say, no? I see how much this means for you and how much it means to you. Of course.' And I almost cried."
