According to the rapper, Logic, when he was at the height of his fame, he was the most depressed. Hot New Hip Hop picked up on comments from the recently-retired artist today in which he talked about how brutal social media users are when a performing artist becomes a public figure.
Logic just dropped a brand new project, No Pressure, which he claims will probably be his last. However, even though it’s his final album – or at least he claims – the rapper has continued doing interviews and press to promote his record.
During an appearence on Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Logic explained how becoming famous was actually a horrific experience in many ways. Fans of Logic know he dropped a song called, “1-800-273-8255,” which is the hotline for National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
The song made Logic a massive success, but it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows, the artist admitted. You can check out the YouTube video in which he talks about his experiences below.
Logic said before the song became very successful, everyone knew he was in the rap world, but “1-800” made him famous in the pop world as well. The performing artist went on to say that he now understands when celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift, complain about online hatred.
The rapper said this point of his career was definitely his worst, at least in terms of emotional wellbeing. With that being said, however, Logic admitted he’d do it all over again because it made him the person who he is today.
As it was previously reported, Logic announced he was going to retire after releasing No Pressure this year. The news was met with disappointment by many of his fans, but not everyone was unhappy about it, including media personalities like Joe Budden.
Joe Budden said on his podcast that Logic should’ve retired a long time ago. Fans know the podcaster hasn’t liked Logic ever since he gained in popularity. Ebro Darden, however, another podcaster, had Logic’s back, stating it was stupid to hate on a guy just because he was a “nerdy dude.”
