He deserves a break and dedicate himself to being a father.
Logic plans to walk away from his rap career. The Def Jam artist has announced that he will be retiring after releasing a final album titled No Pressure on July 24.
“Officially announcing my retirement with the launch of the executive ‘No Pressure’ produced by No ID on July 24,” he wrote via Instagram. “It has been a great decade. Now is the time to be a great father. Art by @samspratt.”
Logic’s retirement announcement comes a few months after he reappeared on social media to update fans about his life. The rapper who sold several platinum records confirmed the birth of his first child and told his followers that he had been busy working on new music.
“Breaking my social media rule for a second to tell you guys i love you so much and just been in such a creative zone working on everything to come,” he wrote on Reddit. “you know me, im five projects and two movies ahead at all times lol/ i hope youre all being safe during this pandemic. know that my heart is with you. i love you all and am excited for no pressure. bars on bars on bars.”
He added, “but this next one is back to the roots for sure and i cant wait for you to hear it when the time is right. little bobby boy is so cute and the most adorable little man in da worlds! lol seriously tho, keep supporting and know im always here to be that voice. I LOVE YOU ALL FOREVER.”
The upcoming No Pressure LP shares the same name as a 2019 freestyle that he released to reveal that he and his wife were having a baby. The project will be his first studio album since Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind of 2019, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200.
Logic’s career officially began with the release of his first mixtape Young, Broke & Infamous in 2010. He finally signed with Def Jam, staying with the label since he released his debut album Under Pressure in 2014.
