Scarface retires from the rap game to move on to bigger and better things.
In a recent interview with FADER, the legendary rapper revealed that his pivot to politics meant his retirement from rap. He was asked to elaborate on his 2017 interview where he said, “Scarface is dead” and whether that meant he was officially leaving rap. “I mean, for me it’s done. I like the idea of politics,” he replied.
His political announcement came shortly after the death of Bushwick Bill who was supposed to embark on a reunion tour with the Geto Boys but later pulled out. Reports initially stated that it was because Bushwick Bill thought the promoters were exploiting his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Scarface didn’t elaborate on the situation but he did believe that Bill wasn’t in a position to hit the road. “That’s something you’d probably have to ask Willie [D, of the Geto Boys],” he said. “But I’m almost certain that Bill was in no shape to tour, and I didn’t want to force him.”
