Earlier this month, Logic dropped the track list for his upcoming eighth studio album College Park. The album will include features from stars like Joey Bada$$, RZA, Redman, and more, Additionally, three of the songs will include guest verses from a rapper named C Dot Castro. For most of his die-hard fans, C Dot is a well-known fixture in Logic’s music. Dating back to “Disgusting” in 2012 and “Ballin” in 2013, C Dot has been alongside Logic for his entire career. So, it was no surprise to see him and the Maryland MC reunite for College Park.
Ahead of the project, the 33-year-old put out the LP’s fourth promotional single with C Dot Castro titled “Lightsabers.” “Lightsabers” follows up a slew of excellent pre-released tracks like “Wake Up,” “High Life” and “Paradise II.” Additionally, “Lightsabers” will likely be the final single Logic puts out before releasing the full album. College Park is slated to release later in the week on Friday (Feb. 24)
Logic And C Dot Castro Collide
“Lightsabers” is produced by not only Logic, but his career-long right-hand man 6ix. 6ix has practically executively produced all of his collaborator’s studio albums. So, it comes as no surprise that he offers an excellent, two-part instrumental on “Lightsabers.” The first portion of the track consists of solely Logic, rapping about the ups and downs of every day life. Over the synthy, bass-infused trap beat, his up-tempo flow is captivating.
After a drawn-out beat switch, Logic is met with a new piano-infused instrumental. However, not much changes in terms of approach for the veteran rhymer. Utilizing his slick-tongued bars, his final verse on the song transitions into an elite display from C Dot Castro. Finishing the song, Castro spits about his determination for a better life and the trials and tribulations he has fought through. Yet again, this storied duo has provided their fans with another excellent display of songwriting and execution. Stream Logic & C Dot Castro’s “Lightsabers” single on Spotify or Apple Music below. Additionally, tune into Logic’s new album College Park this Friday, February 24.
