Salute to my all-time favorite rapper Brad Jordan aka Scarface, who just released his new album entitled, Deeply Rooted, which is 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥!!!! I literally got goosebumps listening to tracks for the first time in the car this morning. This photo is a screen grab from a video interview of us meeting for the first time in 1995, at the Capitol Theatre in my hometown of Flint, Michigan. This dude has no idea how instrumental his music has been as far as helping me grow up, survive and make it out of my city. Then when I moved onto the big college campus, listening to this guy gave me the balance I needed during the transition. Michigan State University didn’t look or feel anything like home, but the music always took me where I needed to be. Every Face and Geto Boys album dropped at times in my life that I needed dude’s wisdom the most. I appreciate him for staying true to who he is, and not tripping on trying to “stay young” in order to be relevant in today’s music scene. Scarface always has been, and always will be legendary.
Go cop the big homie’s very first independent release if you haven’t already. Deeply Rooted features Rick Ross, Nas, John Legend, CeeLo Green, Avant, Papa Rue and Z-Ro. Shout out to Rico Allen for always holding our boy down. I’m looking forward to seeing him put in werk at the ONE MusicFest in Atlanta.
