Logic addresses one of the United State's ongoing injustices.

While Logic took a minute to flex with recent drop Bobby Tarantino 2, he's clearly gotten all the debauchery out of his system. Now, the rapper has set his sights on social issues, picking up where "1-800-273-8255" left off. This time, he's covering one of the year's biggest stories; families being torn apart at the U.S. Mexican border. In a clear attempt to capitalize on the same market his previous hit landed, Logic lays down a cinematic narrative written to tug at the heartstrings.

Weaving together interspersed moments of dialogue, the clip eventually ushers in a band of white supremacists, determined to take back the land they deem their own. Eventually, a wet floor leads to a serendipitous moment of racial harmony; if you can stomach the heavy-handed message, the video does deliver a positive message to be sure. Yet, at the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, one has to wonder if subtlety was ever on the menu? In any case, peep the clip now.
