Logic announced his retirement from music in July with his final album No Pressure, but he’s still experiencing problems with his label.

On Saturday (October 3), the Maryland rapper claimed Def Jam Recordings haven’t been paying his friends and collaborators for their work. Logic shared a long message on Instagram, along with a screenshot of his collaborator Kevin Randolph asking why he hasn’t received any payments yet.

“@defjam can you please pay my friends and musicians that have made my albums great this is ridiculous at this point!” he wrote. “I shouldn’t be getting calls from close friends of mine in the middle of dinner with my Wife about how YOU haven’t paid them from the budget you’ve given me for this album.

“My boy 6ix ain’t been paid all his money! Like who produced the intro hasn’t been paid all his money! Kevin Randolph who the RattPack know as the voice of Kai who I’ve worked with for years hasn’t been paid his money!!!!!! Lil keke hasn’t been paid his money! AND MY DJ RHETORIK, AFTER I HIT YOU UP 2 MONTHS AGO TO PAY THIS MAN HE STILL HASN’T GOTTEN HIS MONEY.”

The fact Logic’s collaborators aren’t getting paid is ruining his relationships with people, who have reached out to him in numbers to question why they haven’t been paid.

“These are just the calls I’ve received I don’t even know who else of my friendships you’re fuckin up!” he said. “This has got to be the 6th call I’ve received. You are ruining personal relationships here. This ain’t Noah my A&R this ain’t the core homies on the label that help me make my albums great. This is people deep in the company that I’ve never even met! Pay these people what is wrong with you! I pay all my debts. This is not my debt to pay. These are friends but they are hired musicians and I demand you stop fucking up my personal relationships what is wrong with you.”

He added, “I’m not trying to start a war with my label. But at this point it is utterly unfair. I mean to this day besides an advance I have never seen a single cent in the 8 years I’ve been signed to this label. But I don’t care about that money. I just want my homies paid. What’s going on here?!?!”

Logic says he’s even prepared to release one more album with Def Jam to make sure he doesn’t have to deal with them again.

“Y’all make me want to un retire and drop the last album I have under my contract just so I don’t have to deal with y’all no more man god damn!” he wrote.
