Bringing verses like a Holy
Bible, my flow is tribal
This is one of the strongest lines in Logic’s career in terms of meaning and flow. First off, Logic alludes to the early, primal music of hunter-gatherer tribes, and asserts that his flow shares in that same rhythm. It’s a nod to the roots of hip-hop culture. It may also reference the group A Tribe Called Quest. Logic is frequently compared to Q-Tip from that group which is a huge compliment.
There’s a paradox here: when we think of tribes in relationship to the history of the Christian church, we don’t frequently think of them as following the Bible. Logic contrasts Western religion to older religious traditions: a juxtaposition.
The Holy Bible is divided into Books, Chapters, and verses. Logic makes a pun here with the break in the flow: he draws attention to the homophone “wholly,” entirely, implying he brings verses like the entire Bible, which contains 31,103 verses. Tight!
