Rapper Robert Bryson Hall II, known professionally as Logic, has announced that he is going to be a daddy. The rapper, 29, dropped the news in quite an original way on Monday in a new freestyle rap called No Pressure, in which he also shared his feelings about the music industry, according to USA Today.
The famous performer announced at the end of his song that he was expecting his first child, a son. “And I’m having a little baby!” he raps. “Surprise! It’s a little baby boy, f— TMZ, they can’t get the scoop on that s—!” Elsewhere in the song, Logic appears to reference his upcoming child through the words, “I wear this 24-karat solid gold rollie for my son as an heirloom.”
Apparently, the child will be named Robert, a name shared by both Logic and his father, as he raps, “Welcome little Bobby to the world.”
Since Logic is in a relationship with clothing designer Brittney Noell, it's pretty safe to asume that she is the one carrying the rapper's child. The mostly-private couple first met in early 2018 and by April of that year, Noell was traveling with the rapper to his show in Las Vegas by private jet, according to TMZ. In June, Noell appeared to celebrate her bachelorette party and was captured in a friend’s Instagram wearing a white robe with crystal embellishments on the back and a ring on her left hand.
The following month, TMZ reported that Logic and Noell had obtained a marriage license and were preparing to tie the knot in the coming days — which seemingly explains his dig at the media outlet in his freestyle rap.
Logic and Noell were first linked shortly after Logic split from his wife of two years, Jessica Andrea. The former couple released a lengthy statement on social media in March 2018 about the end of their relationship, which also came four days after TMZ broke the news.
“After two years of marriage, we have come to the loving conclusion that we are much better as friends. As entertainers, we have made every aspect of our lives public, yet we would appreciate your respect and privacy on this issue,” the pair wrote in a joint statement.
In May 2019, Logic released his fifth studio album, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, which he is currently on tour promoting. The rapper also launched his own label, Bobby Boy Records, as a joint venture with Def Jam Records at the beginning of the year.
