TimTheTatman, TSM Myth and more have paid tribute to rapper Robert ‘Logic’ Hall II, after the American announced his shock retirement from music on July 16. 

As far as rap music goes, there are few who have reached the heights of Logic. His 2013 mixtape ‘Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever’ performed so well it earned him a record deal, and the American has been on the ascent since then.

His final album, announced on July 16 and releasing on July 24, will be entitled ‘No Pressure’. This is a reference to his first studio album ‘Under Pressure’, which released way back in 2014. While a host of fans were expecting another album, few were anticipating the retirement announcement that came alongside it.

“Officially announcing my retirement with the release of ‘No Pressure’ executive produced by No I.D. July 24th,” he tweeted. “It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father.”

While fans were upset that Logic is permanently stepping back from making music, many were understanding about the reasons for the decision, and compliments flooded in.

Streamer TimTheTatman, who has vocalized his love for Logic on Twitch in past broadcasts, responded by saying: “You’re a legend bro”.

On a similarly emphatic note, TSM star Myth simply responded with a GIF of Leonardo DiCaprio clapping, taken from The Wolf of Wall Street.

Anthony Fantano, music critic and YouTuber, jokingly took responsibility for the news, retweeting a comment that accused him of being behind the shock announcement.

Fantano has, in the past, been critical of Logic’s music. ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’, the rapper’s 2019 album, was described by the YouTuber as “far and away” his worst.

In all seriousness, it doesn’t seem likely that Logic took Fantano’s criticism to heart. However, the facts remain the same: Logic is set to step away from making music for good, and a host of the community’s biggest names will miss him.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
