Logic waves goodbye to sharing new music with fans after releasing final album No Pressure. The rapper officially announced his retirement from the music industry, but decided to give his dedicated fanbase one more project to enjoy before his official departure. The decision was explained to revolve around raising his son and being a father in general.
No Pressure is the Maryland rapper’s sixth studio album which offers a stroll down memory lane for listeners. It offers closure and clarity for fans who have been present and supportive since the very beginning and a clear synopsis of everything new fans may have missed. This particular LP seems to be well-thought out and incredibly sentimental. Logic pens a beautifully detailed thank you note and goodbye through 15 new tracks.
Without leaving any stone unturned, he addresses everything from critics to the most important things in life. It eventually becomes clear after listening to the first few songs that No Pressure is a full-circle ending to his highly successful career in a competitive industry. As it takes the role of a metaphoric sequel to his debut album Under Pressure, Logic makes sure to connect back to what listeners originally gravitated towards both sonically and lyrically when it was originally released in 2014.
In terms of content, this project spares no expense when it comes to integrity, recognition and respect. The “Everyday” rapper has never been a stranger to controversy and criticism, but No Pressure may be seen as some sort of redemption for his biggest critics. He addresses those who have never been in favor of the music he created or the messages he strived to share through his songs. Through brutal honesty and lack of a filter, Logic opens up in a uniquely vulnerable way through each track for a rollercoaster of a first-listen. Through lyrics referencing the hardships he has overcome and the challenges he has faced along the way, fans get to understand and see a different side of Robert Bryson Hall II.
This farewell album is a genuine finale to a career celebrated and criticized by millions. Logic returns to his roots and uses his platform to raise awareness on what human beings should focus on and put their energy into. While emotional, No Pressure is undeniably powerful and unforgettable.
