There is a groundbreaking first for Twitch today. The streaming platform is announcing a deal with Logic. It is the first time that Twitch has made an exclusive deal with a musician.

And in case you don’t know who Logic is, he is a rapper who is now retired.

Retirement is going to leave Logic with many hours in the day to fill. That might explain the deal with Twitch. In other words, the deal means that he will stream for a set amount of hour per week.

However, Logic still has some music business to take care of before retirement. That includes the release of his final album on Twitch on July 21.

There is no need to worry that Logic’s retirement from music is permanent. A lot of musicians retire. However, a lot of musicians then decide that they do not have enough to do while retired. As a result, they often decide that maybe they would like to make music again.

Still, Logic’s decision is because doing what was expected of him made him unhappy.

In the meantime. however, Logic will be active on Twitch in a different way.

“This is the place where if you want to interact with me, you’re going to do it here,” Logic told the Verge. “I’m not going to be on Twitch, having political debates. I’m going to be on Twitch, helping people after they’ve had a day of protesting or political debates, unwind and laugh and smile. And if you want to know how I feel about the world, you listen to my music.”

Also, Logic’s real name is Robert Bryson Hall II. Furthermore, Logic told the Verge that he is going to be paid “seven figures” to be active on Twitch.
