The end of ‘Raddest Dad’ features a hidden message that is revealed when the section is played in reverse. In it, Logic addresses his retirement from music – a move he took after releasing his album ‘No Pressure’ last year.


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

“I mean if I did, I’d want to be independent. That’d be pretty cool, being a major artist and actually retiring from the industry instead of music in itself. I don’t know, I think about a lot. OK. Alright.”

The track follows April’s ‘Mars Only Pt.3’, which saw Logic rapping: “Logic and Madlib is MadGic, your catalogue tragic/ Fuck a underground, fuck a pop sound/ Made this whole album in a lockdown, hip hop is our town.” No release details have been confirmed for a full album at present.

Since retiring last summer, Logic has released more music, including September’s beat tape ‘TwitchTape Vol.1’ and the March track ‘Tired In Malibu’.
