Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as rapper Logic, has revealed he’s set to become a full-time Twitch streamer after retiring from rap. Speaking with The Verge, the star revealed his new Twitch partnership, saying: “I’m not this rapper guy, man. I’m just a nerd. I love video games.”
Logic has been on Twitch for a while now, but will soon stream exclusively on the platform with set streaming times and hours. The announcement comes just days after he revealed plans to shelf his rap career.
“I’m blessed enough to have millions of fans and followers,” he told the publication. “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 deal is reportedly a seven-figure sum, though the exact amount hasn’t been disclosed.
“I think it’s a powerful platform that allows me to connect with my fans in the best way possible,” he said. “This is the place where if you want to interact with me, you’re going to do it here. I’m not going to be on Twitch, having political debates. I’m going to be on Twitch, helping people smile after they’ve had a day of protesting or political debates, unwind and laugh and smile.”
At the time of writing, Logic currently has just shy of 80,000 subscribers on Twitch, though it’s expected that he’ll be seeing a lot more before the month is out.
Logic’s first official stream as a Twitch partner will take place on July 21 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. He’ll be debuting his last rap album, No Pressure, on Twitch before it drops on July 24.
