Concert preview: Texas rapper Scarface continues to deliver decades on

Staff Writer

On MTV’s “Cribs” we learned countless rappers consider Al Pacino’s “Scarface” a DVD essential. The Fix, the seventh album from Houston rapper Scarface, released in 2002, deserves equal footing in every MC’s record collection.

Scarface, born Brad Jordan, cut his teeth with the Geto Boys before launching a solo career in the early ’90s, marrying his evocative baritone to street-level tales of hopelessness and desperation. Over his decades-spanning career he’s remained remarkably consistent, stoking optimism for the long-in-the-works Deeply Rooted, which should (hopefully) drop this year.
