Logic has announced he is releasing his final album as he retires to be a father to his newborn son
Rapper Logic, whose real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, has announced that he is officially wrapping up his work with a new album and is retiring from the music industry. The sixth and final studio album 'No Pressure' will mark the end of his career and is scheduled to release on July 24.
The 30-year-old rapper took to social media to make the announcement. Logic revealed that 'No Pressure' was executively produced by No ID, who has worked with numerous hip-hop stars including Jay-Z, Drake, Kanye West and more. “Officially announcing my retirement with the release of “No Pressure” executive produced by No I.D. July 24th,” he wrote on Twitter.
Along with his message, Logic shared the album's cover art, designed by Sam Spratt, showing the rapper floating and disintegrating while furniture and a Hifi system gets tossed around him. For those wondering why the retirement, Logic gave a short and apropos explanation. “It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father," he said.
Fans have been more than supportive of his decision and are looking forward to his final musical treat. "Can’t wait to listen man ur such an inspiration to many," said a fan while another wrote, "We love you forever wont stop supporting." One fan said, "Ur a legend bro."
One fan noted, "Say what you want about Logic but the dude has one of the best mixtape catalogs I’ve ever heard." The comment refers to Logic's mixtapes such as 'Bobby Tarantino' (released 2016) and its followup 'Bobby Tarantino II' (2018), among others. The former debuted at number 16 on the Billboard 200 while the latter debuted at number one on the chart.
Among many gifs and comments with fans expressing their sadness at his departure, one fan wrote, "I mean, can’t be mad at your decision, but mannnn it’s going to feel weird without you in music!! much love bobby." Another shared, "I’m very sad he’s going but he’s going to be a father so I’m happy with it."
In August 2019, Logic and his wife, Brittney Noell, announced they were expecting a son who would be their first child.
Regarding his music, the rapper shared that he was working on the new album, which is a sequel to his 2014 debut album 'Under Pressure'. He said, “It talks a lot about really dope shit." He explained, "It’s very hip-hop and very dope, but not like my album ‘Young Sinatra 4’, which is kinda boom-bap hip-hop. This one is more modern hip-hop."
“I’m talking about a lot of shit. I’m talking about life, things I’ve gone through and having a child. All types of stuff," Logic added.
