It looks like Logic‘s forthcoming album, No Pressure, will be his last. The rapper, just a few days ago, announced his retirement from music over social media, stating that “it’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father.”
Officially announcing my retirement with the release of “No Pressure” executive produced by No I.D. July 24th…
It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father.

This isn’t where the story ends, however. Logic will have a new job, and that job will be streaming on Twitch, exclusively. In a press release, Twitch has announced that Logic has signed an exclusive deal with stream with them.

Even though neither Twitch nor Logic are disclosing the actual amount of the deal, The Verge (which Logic recently did an interview with) is reporting that it is at least seven figures. In that same interview, Logic claims that the pivot in his career is due to his love of nerdom and video games.
“I’m not fooling myself,” he told The Verge. “I’m a musician, I’ll always be one. I’m still gonna, like, rap on songs that probably won’t come out.”
