Logic's forthcoming brand new album is no longer entitledAfricAryaN—he changed the title to Everybody—but that doesn't mean the Def Jam emcee shied away from talking about being bi-racial.

In a vlog posted to his YouTube channel on Monday, which breaks down the concept of Everybody, Logic explained why, for the first time in his career, he decided to talk about his own race on an album.

First and foremost, let me preface all of this by saying, the only time I talk about myself on the entire album is when I discuss my own race and experience. That's it. And I don't do it very much, at all. It's only a few songs where I discuss it and talk about it because I'm proud to be black. I'm proud to be bi-racial. I'm fucking proud to be who I am. And I've never said that on an album. Some people who say, 'You always talk about being black and white.' Well, that's not really true, other people always bring the shit up, and now I'm finally here to say, 'Yeah, I am fuckin proud to be me, fuck you, cause you made me feel like I should be ashamed or can't be myself.

Everybody, which features guest appearances by Black Thought, Juicy J, Killer Mike and more, is due out on May 5. Check out the full tracklist below.
