Rich hip-hop artists tend to have expensive hobbies. East Coast rapper Logic is no exception as he proved recently when he reportedly spent over $200,000 on a very rare Pokémon card.
Logic Spends A Quarter-Million On Pokémon Card
Despite recently announcing his retirement from the hip-game game, Logic is still going hard on his favorite card game. His purchase of the rare 1st edition Charizard Pokémon card is a new record for the highest bid on a Nintendos collectible, topping the $216,000 that YouTube personality Logan Paul spent on a Pokemon box.
“When I was a kid I absolutely loved Pokémon but couldn’t afford the cards. I remember even trying to trade food stamps for theirs and now as an adult who has saved every penny he has made being able to enjoy something that I’ve loved since childhood now as a grown man is like buying back a piece of something I could never have, it’s not about the material it’s about the experience.” -Logic’s Instagram
Logic Shares What He’s Been Doing During Rap Retirement
Logic is keeping his hand in the music industry during retirement. The hip-hop star – who recently dropped the mic for good – has teased fans about still getting to hear his contributions to the rap game even if he’s not recording new tunes. The hip-hop heavyweight went to his Twitter page to reveal he’s grinding in the beat-making world. What started off as a small tease has turned into an unexpected and much-appreciated new TwitchTape Vol. 1 beat tape.
“Hey guys! I’m live making beats! Come join me!” -Logic’s Twitter
Logic Addresses Joe Budden Disses
Recently, Logic didn’t hold back on discussing rap artist Joe Budden‘s past decisions to single him out publicly. Log even went as far as to blame Joe for helping contribute to his battles with depression as a mixed race rapper.
“He doesn’t like me for whatever reason. He wants to say I’m not Black enough, I’m not good enough. He’s a person who’s led to part of my depression, some of my darkest spaces – your words, they make people want to kill themselves, bro.” (Hot 97)
In July 2020, Logic went to a livestream to share his thoughts as his No Pressure farewell album prepared to drop. His teary-eyed reflection on his rap career sparked a slew of positive co-signs, memes and proof Budden might be wrong about Log’s fanbase.
