“Black Spiderman” is a song by American rapper Logic featuring singer Damian Lemar Hudson. It was released on April 13, 2017, through Visionary Music Group and Def Jam Recordings, as the second single from his third studio album Everybody.
It was awarded a 2017 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Fight Against the System.” The song was produced by Logic, 6ix and DJ Khalil.
“Black Spiderman” is Logic’s way of telling people to be themselves and be proud of it and also to respect other people’s opinions.
He wants everyone to know that race, religion, color, creed, and sexual orientation shouldn’t be able to separate us because we are all human.
In the liner notes for this song, Logic said:
This song is the celebration of unity and a world built upon division. People say things like I don’t see color, I just see people. To which I retour you should see color, you should see a black man, a white woman, a brown little girl or any other color of the rainbow.
This track features vocals from Damien Lemar Hudson.
Logic officially released this song on April 14th, 2017 as the second single from his third studio album Everybody.
This song was first teased on December 1, 2016 via Logic’s twitter:
Spider-Man should be Black. James Bond should be gay if he wants. If we want to make a gay James Bond, fuck it. Why not? It’s 2017, why not? Who gives a shit?
Accept diversity. That’s what I always say. People will say things like, “I don’t see black. I don’t’ see white.” But you should see color, ‘cause I think the color is beautiful. And those are the things that make us different. But it’s the things that make us different that should not separate us.
My point of what I’m saying on this song, it’s the fight against stereotypes.
I’m used a nerdy white dude from New York City who plays Spider-Man cause that’s how Stan Lee created him but I’m just saying the Internet should not explode when it’s suggested that Donald Glover should play Spider-Man. That’s fucked up and it shouldn’t happen.
