Logic recently announced that the title of his next album will be AfricAryaN, and in an appearance on Dan Harmon's podcast, he broke down what the title means. "It's two words that I put together. It's basically, the definition of it is the evolution of man, scientifically proven the first man and woman from Africa and then how over time culturally evolving into lighter and lighter and much fairer skin. So the album is going to be called AfricAryaN."

According to Logic, he's going to use the project to discuss the nuances of his biracial identity. "It's about me being black and white and seeing life from two sides. And once again about that cultural evolution and how you can go from the darkest of skin to the lightest of skin," he said. "Or the Aryan brotherhood if you will who think their pure of blood when at the end of the fucking day we all have that in our blood and we all have so many different ethnicities in our blood no matter how pure we think we are."

The Maryland rapper went on to explain how he hopes the album's concept will promote understanding and positivity. "And at the end of the day life should be about peace love and positivity and equality for every man woman and child that walks the earth and that's what I'm saying on this entire album," he said.

AfricAryaN is due out sometime in early 2017. You can check out the clip of him explaining the title above.
