Just when Logic fans thought he was finally snapping back at Joyner Lucas on his latest release Bobby Tarantino II, the rapper claims he had no one specifically in mind when he unloaded on "Yuck."

"It's not a diss song. If it was a diss song, I'd say somebody's name... this is probably the closest [I'm] ever going to have," Logic recently told Hard Knock TV. "I would never do that. It's not who I am. This is the closest I would ever diss the entire industry that talks shit about me. Every single person in one, that's it. I would never focus on one person, or one thing or one that because I feel sorry for anyone who would try to beef with me. It's like, what's the point? It's funny to me. Me and my homies, we just clown, like, I don't even know any of these people."

Until Bobby Tarantino II dropped, the feud between Logic and Lucas was one-sided, with Lucas firing countless shots at Logic since the two teamed up with Tech Nine on "Sriracha" in 2016 (Lucas called Logic's verse "wack"). Among plenty of other comments since, Lucas' most recent shot took aim at Logic's Bobby Tarantino II track "44 More" on March 4.

Naturally, when Logic fans heard the lines "Talkin' shit 'bout Logic, I never respond/ I'll let success talk, 'cause a word of advice/ More achievements for yourself and less talk/ Cats beef with Logic, yeah, they prayin' I respond/ If I ever did I dead you in this game with no respawn" in "Yuck," they assumed it was a reference to Lucas' disses. Even though the lyrics do seem to fit the narrative, Logic stressed that he's not looking to get involved in Lucas' beef.

"To me it's just not important, it's not worth it. I'm just happy, and I'm not going to live in that life. I'm just so fucking positive," he continued. "This was just a fun opportunity to every journalist, every fucking rapper, every this, every that, in my entire career that has said something about me -- I wish you the best."

Whomever the lyrics apply to, Logic does remain true to his positive outlook on life in "Yuck," making sure the haters know he'll kill them with kindness: "Peace, love and positivity, that's all I want with you/ But you push the issue 'cause I give you more press than your publicist could ever get you/ Hell nah, fuck rap, fuck beef, anyone that hate me, I wish you success/ I wish you look in the mirror and ask yourself why you suppressed."
