Logic has had an early retirement. The 30-year-old rapper has signed with video game streaming platform Twitch following his retirement from making music. His deal contains a seven-figure.
The company wrote in the press release, “Logic will stream weekly on his Twitch channel which will include a mixture of in-studio sessions, special guests, AMA style formats, and gaming.”
According to The Verge, Logic - whose real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, signed a seven-figure deal with Twitch, though he did not disclose the exact amount.
He said to the media outlet, “I’m not this rapper guy, man. I’m just a nerd. I love video games. I’m blessed enough to have millions of fans and followers. So it is a great partnership…I’m going to bring new eyes to their service, they’re going to bring new money to my bank account, and — I’m just kidding.”
The former rapper married Brittney Noell in 2019 and had revealed they were expecting a child together in August 2019. The birth of their son was announced in July 2020.
And just last week he had announced his retirement from music to his millions of fans worldwide to be there for his wife and son.
“I would like you to meet LB as we call him, Little Bobby. And my beautiful wife Brittney [Noell] who is an incredible mother. These two make me the happiest man in the world and it’s a happiness nothing else has ever been able to fulfill,” Logic had announced. “I know the news of retirement may be bittersweet when understanding the motives behind it. But worry not dear listener. I will still be here for you.”
His final album No Pressure will be released on 24 July.
