Scarface's Emeritus, released earlier this month, has been rumored to be his final album. Now, Scarface has confirmed it. Sort of. In an interview with 112's Slim, he said that the alias is done, but the man won't stop rapping.
"Scarface is dead," he said. "The artist formerly known as Face is going to produce some sh-- on Slim's album but it won't be Face no more. Face is dead."
Scarface also said he "grew up in a band," plays "everything" and might bring it back. If he does, he wants George Clinton to "direct the horns section." Clearly, the respect for the past generation is there, but what about the next generation of hip-hop? Not so much.
In a separate interview with YoRaps, Scarface dismissed what he referred to as "fruit snack rap" and "ringtone rap." What would he get rid of? "Anything that punishes hip-hop. Anything that does not add to the art form and that takes away from what hip-hop is. Hip-hop is a feeling man, it's a way of life. Anything that radio plays is wack. All the great records don't get played."
Face showed love for Jay-Z, but a mention of Soulja Boy got him fired up again. "I think Soulja Boy had a brilliant idea, what he did with it was great. He took what he had and made money from it. If he's that smart he's going to be a billionaire. So I got a lot of respect for Soulja Boy. I don't have respect for all the sh-- that gets like 50,000 spins a week for eight months, and then when their record comes out they sell like eight copies the first week. They're six months into their album and they only got 3000 records, but they sold 150,000 ringtones. How do you face your momma?"
