Tonight’s SummerStage show in Red Hook Park featuring Scarface is cancelled due to weather.
As a solo artist and member of Geto Boys, Scarface has always made sure to tell the stories he feels the world needs to hear. Whether it is speaking out against injustice, reflecting on his struggles with depression and his own mental health, or just telling the stories of the streets, he is one rapper you can always rely on to give you the real deal. In his video for “No Problem,” the first single off 2014’s Deeply Rooted, Face comes out swinging, literally, as he strolls the streets alone through his original hood, South Acres in Houston, TX. Dressed in a low key black sweater and some casual jeans, with Malcolm X style glasses adding an even greater depth to his dead serious stare, the first thing you notice is that he’s lost over 100 pounds. He starts things off by declaring that he’s the “Greatest ever done it, you can learn from it, dope game ran it, rap game run it, street cred hunnid, nerd turned d boy, not genetic makeup, baby I’m a G-boy.” It’s quite a declaration, but if you know the man’s history, you know that he earned the right to say, and mean, every line.
