Logan, one of the top rising stars of Chicago's hip hop scene is back with new material. He has gotten right back to the grind after recently being the victim of a shooting on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Logan was one of three victims targeted in the shooting and had a shot graze his head mere centimeters from potentially taking his life. All victims thankfully survived and once Logan returned home he was ready to let his fans know he wasn't letting up.
The new track is titled "Far Away" and was produced by Flight. Flight, as always comes through with a fantastic beat that meshes absolutely perfectly with Logan's flow on the track. For this one, Logan took the opportunity to let fans see into some of his emotions and things he is feeling as he grows up. Hearing what the rising artist is saying and how he is feeling after this recent tragedy makes the lyrics even all the more powerful. He raps about being "at a loss for words" at times and the stress and pressure he feels as a "young lost soul" searching for a meaning and a way to take care of himself and his loved ones. On the hook Logan raps, "I don't know what to do, where to go. But I know that its gotta be far far away. Home ain't feeling like home to me so I think it's time for me to go far away. I don't really know where to go but I know it's gotta be far far away. Home ain't feeling like home to me so I think it's time for me to go far away." This chorus holds even more power after the recent event in his life and shows us just how real this pressure he is feeling is. The visual for this was directed by J. Krown and is shot in a way the perfectly coincides with the raw emotion on the song. The video features shots of Logan going through daily motions walking through his city or getting off of public transportation but always comes back to shots of Logan on his own in some isolated area whether it be out on a dock looking over the water, posted up in the woods dealing with his thoughts, or maneuvering around the city to find an isolated spot for him to go ahead and get "far away". This is a must watch video for any true hip hop fan. It is more than a video, Logan, Flight, J. Krown have all teamed up to create this piece of art, make sure you give it a watch.
Prayers go out to Logan and all of FEOMOB from the Prime Fortune Team. Let's stop the violence Chicago.
