“Keanu Reeves” by Logic Lyrics Meaning
This track not only serves as a homage to legendary action star Keanu Reeves. But more importantly it touts the superiority of its performer, Logic. Reeves played a popular character famously referred to as “the One”. Likewise, Logic is saying that he is also “the one”, as in the most-dominant rapper.
This track is split into three major topics. First are Logic’s personal experiences that have resulted from him being rich and famous. For instance, there are a number of popular memes based on his character and his heritage. He also sold out Madison Square Garden, one of the greatest concert venues in the United States. And in terms of women, he has on-hand both professional shorties and models who he chills and pops bottles with.
Secondly, keeping to the Reeves-centric theme, another major topic discussed is violence. Logic does not insinuate that he personally busts shots. However, he makes it abundantly clear that he got homeys who, when the occasion calls for it, will resort to a murder-inducing response.
Logic also delves briefly into his parentage. Indeed one of his claims to fame is his biracial background, and he acknowledges such in “Keanu Reeves”.
