Logic officially ends retirement and shares 'Intro'

Logic has dramatically cut short his retirement from music less than a year after he said he was moving on. The rapper has delivered an emphatic two-word statement: “I’m back.”

Last year, Logic said that he was planning to retire from the music industry following his sixth studio album ‘No Pressure’, which arrived in July 2020. Almost a year later, the Maryland rapper has had a change of heart and revealed that his retirement is over.

His retirement still saw him continue to make music, and Logic teamed up with famed producer Madlib to form MadGic and release a beat tape. On top of that, the rapper recently released two new songs.

Logic took to Twitter to officially put a stop to his retirement and shared the news with his fans by paying tribute to Michael Jordan’s infamous, ‘I’m back’, the announcement from when he returned to the NBA in 1995.

Captioning the statement with ‘Friday’, he’s dropped a new track called ‘Intro’, which captures Logic in a reflective mood as he looks back at how his life has changed over the last decade as he’s released music. The song finishes with the line: “I’m unretired, yeah, I’m back, that’s a fact, that’s that.”

The track arrives after Logic shared the following statement: “Washington, DC. (June 16, 2021) – The following statement was released today by Logic, through his attorney Paul Rothenberg, Partner of Rothenberg, Mohr & Binder, LLP located in NYC, in response to questions about his future career plans: ‘I’m back’.”
