Logic has signed an exclusive agreement with the Twitch streaming service.

“I’m not this rapper, man,” he told The Verge. “I’m just a nerd. I love video games.”

The American rapper, real name Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, has been using the platform for years.

It is believed to be the first exclusive deal that Twitch has made with a musician, but it is unclear if music will be streaming.

It wasn’t until last week that Logic said he was leaving the music scene to focus on fatherhood.

Although now, he says he felt “forced” when he made that announcement.

“It’s not that the label made me feel like this. I was doing it alone, because I’m such a businessman and I was pushing myself to the brink of madness.”

Logic hopes to bring his fan base with him.

He said to The Verge: “I am going to bring new eyes to their service, they are going to bring new money to my bank account and … I am just kidding.”

He added: “I will not be on Twitch, I will have political debates. I will have on Twitch, helping people after they have had a day of protests or political debates, relax, laugh and smile.”

Logic states that the site was the “safest way possible” to interact with fans.

Recently Twitch was accused of not doing enough regarding the allegations about the abuse, as well as of not banning streamers from using racist or homophobic language.

He announced that he would start issuing permanent bans on certain streamers.
