Scarface Is Coming Out With A New Album And A Book
"What's Going On"Artist: Scarface featuring A-G-2-A-KE
Release Year: 1998
Song Sampled: "What's Going On?"
Sample Release Year: 1971
Sample Effect: Marvin's hook on his most iconic song gets reinterpreted for Face's version.
Why The Song Is Dope: It's a laid back feel that doesn't feel laid back; Face and A-G spit venomous bars over a funkified groove, arriving back at Marvin's hook to ask the same question Gaye asked nearly three decades before. —DR
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
