Rhyme Junkie Rating: College Park by Logic
For the sake of this article, let's briefly discuss how the track list is rated.
Each and every track is carefully dissected and given its own numerical rating in the following categories:
Think of this category as a "general rating". It refers to whether or not the song attracts interest throughout the entire track.
The content category refers to the lyrics of the given track. It's determined by the artist's lyrical competence.
This is a fancy way of saying beat, instrumental, or backing track. It refers to the part of the track that doesn't include lyrics or ad-libs.
Delivery encompasses a couple of things, but for the sake of Rhyme Junkie Ratings, it will refer mostly to the artist's ability to evoke the emotion they're attempting to explore from the listener.
Last, but certainly not least, is flow. Flow refers to the artist's ability to match the lyrics to the rhythm of the musical composition.
After each category receives a numerical rating between 1-10, the five scores are averaged, producing the track's final rating, starting from the lowest end and ending with the highest-scored track. After each track is rated the review will conclude with an overall rating of the entire album based on the scores for each track.

17. "Come on Down" by Logic rating
Musical Composition: 7.8/10
Final Rating: 7.48
"Come on Down" by Logic features Jordan Harris and Lucy Rose, and takes us on a light, bass-hitting trip into some of his motivations, sampling The Montclairs' "Dreaming's Out of Season" concluding with a brief message by Lil Keke. He goes on to touch on some of the pressures he felt at one point to trap and explore gang life. Lil Keke enters at the conclusion of the track with a powerful message:
"Most folks think gangsters like what they do- Lil Keke
Think they enjoy killin' their own brothers and sisters
By riddlin' our streets with bullet shells and narcotics
Most people think that shit cool, think again
Why you think they call it the trap, playboy?
We just tryna escape by any means
But we mostly end up escapin' through death"
