On “1-800-273-8255,” Logic shows that suicide is never the answer to anyone’s problems. He wants people to know that there is always help available, like the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, whose phone number is the title of this song. In fact, the song was released in partnership with the NSPL.
In an interview with Genius, Logic said that this song details the story of someone calling the NSPL wanting to commit suicide but after a conversation with the NSPL representative, the caller soon after decides he wants to live.
The new project, which consists of 13 songs, features guest spots from Killer Mike, Chuck D, Black Thought, Juicy J, Alessia Cara, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Khalid, who’s one of the fastest-rising R&B stars of today.This tracklist arrives just a day after Logic unveiled two trailers for his forthcoming Everybody documentary. In one of the clips, we hear what Killer Mike has to say about Logic’s upcoming album.
