WATCH: LOGIC REMINDS US TO HAVE FUN IN 'SUPER MARIO WORLD' MV
Bi-racial rapper Logic has always portrayed himself as a character of multiple identities; constantly commenting on having a black father and white mother. With a fair complexion himself he hasn't held back from making many social commentaries on modern America.
But Logic just made Super Mario World for fun.
As I have covered in many of my articles, whilst the artistic integrity of modern rap can get diluted by meaningless lyrics, ghost writers and copy-cat artists, Super Mario World doesn't really harm the genre.
Everything about this song, from the abstract connection to Mario, the cliches in Logic's lyrics, to flow can be considered a banal and lazy attempt to make a 'hit'; But in reality this song was made to poke fun at all that.
In the background you can hear him say "that's lit, that's lit, that's gonna be the hook right there,' when he first sings 'Oh my goodness/Oh my goodness/Oh my goodness/Oh my goodness/Oh my god.
The point is, there is no point. By using these motif's of modern rap Logic is saying he doesn't really give a f**k about what people think of him;
The actual connection to Mario is reminiscent of Logic's childhood where he used video games as an escape from the stresses of his rough upbringing. His message is that sometimes, even with all the serious s**t that goes on in the world, sometimes we need to let go.
