Logic Says He Was the Saddest At His Highest Point of Riches & Fame

Logic is currently on a promotional run for his new album No Pressure, and he's been opening up about how unhappy he's been.

He told Hard Knock TV this week that internet trolls forced him to retire. The DMV rapper, who signed a seven-figure deal with Twitch, said earlier this month that No Pressure would be his final album.

Logic's latest interview is with Big Boy on L.A.'s 92.3, where he once again made the connection between being famous and miserable. He said his unhappiness really kicked in after he dropped his sucicide prevention song "1-800-273-8255," because it made him a pop star. [Head to the 38:45 mark]

"The thing is, before '1-800' popped off on the Everybody album I was just a known rapper," Logic explained. "But I went from that to a pop, known... And then when you do that I'm like, 'Oh ok, now I get it Selena [Gomez], now I get it Justin [Bieber], ok I get it, Taylor [Swift]. Like, I get it, dog.' Like, ya'll get it, y'all get ripped apart."

"My lowest point, my deepest, darkest, depressed state that I've ever been in was my most famous, my most wealthy, my most known," Logic continued. "People don't understand that. Would I do it all over again? Yes, because I made it here and I'm still fighting and learning every day."

Is Logic totally insecure or is being super famous and heavily scrutinized as hard as he says?
