Logic is officially retiring.
The 30-year-old rapper broke the news of his retirement on social media this Thursday (July 16) with the announcement of his upcoming album, No Pressure, which will be his last.
"Officially announcing my retirement with the release of No Pressure executive produced by No I.D. July 24th," he tweeted, explaining that he's dropping the mic to focus on fatherhood. “It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father."
The two-time Grammy-nominated musician, born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, is a father to a son named Bobby with wife Brittney Noell, with whom he tied the knot in September 2019.
Logic got ahead of the tabloids by breaking the news of his future son in August 2019 on the self-produced track, “No Pressure Freestyle.” On it, Logic closes out the record with: “And I'm havin' a little baby/ Surprise, it's a little baby boy/ F—k TMZ, they can't get the scoop on that s—t/ Welcome little Bobby to the world one time.”
As fans know, the lyricist previously married Jessica Andrea in 2015 before the couple announced their divorce in 2018.
No Pressure will be the recording artist’s sixth and final album after last year’s Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, which topped the Billboard 200, making it Logic’s third album to do so after 2017’s Everybody and the 2018 mixtape, Bobby Tarantino II.
Since making the announcement, fans and fellow rappers have been sending Logic words of love and support.
