3. Anything by Quentin Tarantino
Over the years, Logic has paid homage a gross amount of films, but “Metropolis” is by far the most jam-packed track with Tarantino references. “Metropolis” is the ninth track on Logic’s debut studio album, Under Pressure, which was released in 2014. In a true Logic fashion, he concludes the song with a skit in which he’s heard conversing with an anonymous woman about “the classics.” The dialogue opens with him questioning her: “I can’t believe you don’t like Tarantino.” He goes on to ask her if she has seen any of Tarantino’s most iconic films, including Inglorious Bastards, Pulp Fiction, Source Code, and Donnie Darko.
We think the purpose of this scene was to highlight some of Logic’s favorite films to his younger audience, encouraging them to dive into the world of Tarantino that so heavily influenced him as an artist; so much that he decided it was vital to mention it on his first official body of work.
