Royce Da 5’9″ Feat. Logic & King Green Caterpillar Remix
Many fans were surprised to see Eminem appear on Royce Da 5’9″‘s “Caterpillar” after it was rumoured Logic would be fitting the slot. Turns out, Logic appears on the remix of the track, which arrived along with Royce’s new album Book Of Ryan as a bonus track. With many calling Em’s verse the best he’s written in some time, Logic has big shoes to fill, but the boom bap beat is pretty much home turf for the Maryland rapper, who spits rhymes about inclusion and unity. Rather than keep things to a concise 16, Logic gets comfortable in his closing verse, only stopping when he’s said everything he needs to. After going on a tangent where he discusses the complexities of his biracial identity in a half-spoken mock dialogue, he shouts out a few of the rappers he feels are doing things the right way: “Fuck the rap ego shit, just be a good person now that’s the spirit / Shoutout to true emcees that love the culture / From Duckworth to Chano, Jermaine and Joey / And Aubrey and can’t forget Bobby.”
