Logic Sets Record With $226,000 Pokemon Purchase


Logic recently retired from rap and he’s spending his riches on Pokemon! 

Enjoying a career of substance is something that few emcees have been blessed to have achieved. One that is lucrative … even fewer.

Logic seems to have been able to do both. Evidence of this can be seen in his recent purchase of a rare collectors’ item that ran him almost a quarter million bucks. The retired Def Jam artist paid $226,000 for a first edition Charizard with no shadow, setting a new Nintendo Collectibles record.

He also dropped $23,000 on a Pokemon box set that he shared on social media.

“Just opened a $23k Pokémon base set box! Only a few packs in but What did I pull?”


“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 was recently in the news for an in-depth conversation about mental health with NBC’s Carson Daly about this very important issue with an encouraging tone.

“Anything that anybody can be going through alone, in the depths of their mind, and they feel like they can’t get out of it — dude, you totally can,” Logic said. “And you will laugh later. It is a real thing. You can 100% get out of it, but it’s by making positive steps.”

On his Instagram, he directed his fans to the video of the work that he is doing to change.


In celebration of World Mental Health Day, which happened on Saturday, October 10th, Logic appeared in a video series entitled, “Mind Matters.”

The series sheds light and gives a face to mental health and wellness challenges, taking the social stigma out of the various conditions that often prevent people from getting help.
