Logic Reviews Anthony Fantano’s Review Of Chance The Rapper

Reviewers can be pretty harsh, especially when they're as notorious and well-known for their opinions as Anthony Fantano, also known as The Needle Drop on YouTube. However, he's also shown an earnest and fun personality despite his blunt takes, something other artists appreciate beyond feeling criticized. For example, Logic just did a Fantano-style review of his own video about Chance the Rapper's The Big Day. While this is one of the more negative reviews on his channel (I mean, he gave it a 0), it still has some pretty fun moments. As such, Logic had some fun of his own breaking down The Needle Drop's opinions and video style.

In fact, the two have a solid rapport and relationship, despite Fantano's own negative reviews of some Logic albums. Moreover, the Internet's busiest music nerd appeared on Logic's album Vinyl Days, both in an interlude and in the MC's lyrical content. As a pretty online person himself, Logic seems to have a similar sense of humor to the music reviewer. Also, the Maryland rapper isn't a Chance hater, either. The two have an old SoundCloud song together titled "Upcoming" and nowhere in Logic's video does he dig at the "No Problem" rapper himself.

Still, most of the video is dedicated to asking Fantano to chill out regarding his takes on The Big Day. For example, the YouTube star took issue with Chance's lyrics on his 2019 album, whether for his punchlines or topics. One lyric he pointed out was "Pretty sure I need you in this season like a flu shot." Logic had to step up to defend his fellow artist here. "Pause that," he said in the middle of Fantano's review. "That's a bar. Okay, that's dope. What the f**k? Hatin' ass..."

Overall, the Under Pressure lyricist acknowledged how much passion and effort Fantano puts in, however negatively he may feel. Not only that, but between the funny edits and memes throughout his video, the MC balanced empathy as an artist and understanding that external opinions don't matter for them. Maybe that's reading to deep into it, but let us know what you thought of Logic and Anthony Fantano's reviews. Also, if you haven't seen it, check out Logic's full review of The Big Day review above. Y'all know those are just their opinions, right?
