The Maryland-based rapper, Sir Robert Bryson Hall II best known by his stage name Logic has announced his retirement on social media on July 17, 2020. The reason for retirement?? “It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father.” We believe all of his fans could respect that!
Logic’s retirement comes with a brand new and final album due on July 24, 2020. Logic announced the album, titled ‘No Pressure,’ on Thursday on his social media.
The album artwork, done by Sam Spratt, is a wormhole of easter eggs.
– No. 6 on the speaker hints at the number of studio albums on Logic’s discography.
– The photo frame on the cabinet shows a picture of a baby, a possible reference to his newborn son.
– The two hands of Logic are portrayed in a very specific way. It resembles the hands of God and Adam in the painting ‘The Creation of Adam‘ by Michelangelo. This could possibly refer to the new life he created into this world with his spouse.
– The orange colour is related to the emotions of optimism, joy, warmth, confidence, and a whole lot of good things, signalling how Logic’s life is going to change with his son.
The title of Logic’s sixth and final studio album correlates to his debut studio album titled ‘Under Pressure,’ released in 2014. The two albums will signify the beginning and end of his illustrious music career, and how it has transformed him and his life.
