Logic announces his retirement

Rapper Logic has announced his retirement aged just 30 and has also revealed the release of his sixth album which will be available on July 24th.

Since his 2014 debut Under Pressure, Logic has garnered vast commercial success and he scored number one albums in the States with 2017’s Everybody before following it up with 2019 effort Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

His most successful single arrived in 2017 in the shape of ‘1-800-273-8255’, a track which was named after a prevention hotline in the States, and peaked at number nine in the UK charts and three across the pond.

Speaking to the website Genius in 2017, Logic explained where the song came from: “Fans that I met randomly, they’d say things like ‘your music has saved my life’. And then it hit me, the power that I have as an artist with a voice. I wasn’t even trying to save your life – now what can happen if I actually dis?”

Now though, in a statement shared on Twitter, the musician has decided to announce his retirement. The rapper posted: “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.”
