Nas and Scarface after their "Hip-Hop" performance at last weekend's Rock the Bells showcase (September 2).

Dirty South icon Scarface is coming back a little harder and a little smaller with his new album Rooted. In Part 1 of The Road To #DeeplyRooted series the former Geto Boy offers a seek peek look at what went into his upcoming album and book (same title), both due out this summer.

“ The game the same. It don’t switch, said Scarface. “The same rules apply in this game as they did in the other game.”—Chris M. Garner
