Song of the Day: “Numbers” – Logic

At what point do similarities become more than mere coincidental likenesses? This is an important question when discussing Logic’s Paramore-sampling “Numbers”. I won’t mention whose music “Numbers” resembles, but it should be obvious to anyone who has listened to mainstream hip hop within the past couple of years. When do these stylistic resemblances turn into forms of imitation, and consequently, when does imitation lose it’s credibility as “art”?


(For the record, I like the song)
