Fredde Gibbs isn't happy about Logic's similar album concept as his.
In case you missed it, Logic just announced the title & release date to his next album Everybody on Wednesday, along with sharing its trailer (and album cover) in the process, but it looks like someone isn’t happy about it. That someone is Freddie Gibbs.
On Wednesday night, Gibbs took to Instagram to call out Logic for “blatantly jocking” his cover & trailer concept for his upcoming comeback album You Only Live 2wice. “Dear @logic301 I hope you purchase my album on Friday due to the fact that you just blatantly jocked my shit. Blessings. #ESGN #YOL2 3/31” wrote the ESGN emcee.
From the look of it, both covers do have a lot of similarities with each taking inspiration from historic European paintings. Meanwhile, both trailers feature the same concept of having tourists visiting museums looking at their album covers, however I think this could be a wild case of coincidence though.
It’s been known that Logic has been working on his album cover for the past six months, as told by the painter Sam Pratt himself on Wednesday on Twitter (see below). Pratt says the artwork was inspired by Logic’s trip to the Louvre museum in Paris.
Let's hope these two quickly work out what looks to be one helluva coincidence.
Check out both album trailers & evidence (below) and let us know what you think. Does Gibbs have a right to be upset or is this pure coincidence?
Damn. Thank you so much for the comments on the cover. Here's just a small bit of the story of how it came to be. So much more to share. pic.twitter.com/IH2kcY67yi— Sam Spratt (@SamSpratt) March 29, 2017
