Logic ends retirement and teases new music with Michael Jordan press release

Less than a year after announcing his resignation, Logic has hinted to fans that he will return to music this Friday with the release of new material.

The Maryland rapper went to Twitter Wednesday night to share the news with a statement that paid homage to Michael Jordan’s 1995 “I’m back” announcement that confirmed his return to the NBA.

“The following statement was released today by Logic through attorney Paul Rothenberg, a NYC-based partner at Rothenberg, Mohr & Binder, LLP, in response to questions about his future career plans: ‘I’m back,'” the press release said .

Logic has labeled the picture of the statement “Friday” which appears to mean that it will post something new on June 18th.

At the end of his last single with Madlib, “Raddest Dad,” which was released in May, Logic explained why he was still releasing music in retirement.

“I retired, but I’ve been making music every day since I retired because I love it,” he said in the message. “And then I think I realized that I don’t like the industry. I think I want to retire from the industry. That’s why I want to make this music for free. Sometimes I want to come back, but I don’t know if I should come back. “

In July 2020, Logic announced his retirement along with the release date of his sixth studio album, No Pressure. “I’m officially announcing my resignation with the release of No Pressure Executive, produced by No ID,” he tweeted on July 16 as he shared the release date, “… It’s been a great decade. Now is the time to be a great father. “
