Scarface To Retire From Rap For Good?

Scarface’s Made, the southern lyricist’s seventh official solo album, almost never came out. Nearly two years ago, Face told SOHH he was quitting rap. He obviously didn’t. One album later, Face is singing a familiar tune, or is he?

“This is it for me,” Face told XXLMag.com. “That should end it right here. I ain’t making it my last album. I’m moving on to some different shit. It ain’t my last album that I’m gonna be a part of. You never know what’s next for me. I might go into making one of them rock bands.”

“Scarface, Emeritus, man,” he continued. “I’m always gonna be a part of the industry. I may just not be a part of the music industry as Scarface. Maybe, I don’t know. I ain’t saying nothing.”

Coincidentally, emeritus means retired with honor. Still, when queried about his next album being his last Scarface solo release, the Houston MC refused to elaborate.

“I’m not gonna say that,” he replied. “I’m gonna say Scarface, Emeritus. As time goes on, you will understand it.”

A date has yet-to-be set for Emeritus. As Face puts the finishing touches on the CD, he’s also promoting heregomydemo.com, a new site he recently launched to help up-and-coming artists put their music out.

“Every time I’m out on the road, everywhere I go, somebody got a demo for me,” Face explained. “Somebody’s gonna get caught without their music somewhere. It’s not myspace, youtube or iTunes, it’s all creative motherfuckers in one, man. You can post your own shit. You can sell your shit. You can audition musicians. You can audition singers. You wanna buy an MPC, you got pro tools for sale, there’s a classified section for shit like that.” –Carl Chery

      When were you born?I guess in the 90s.You need to go peep through ‘the world is yours’,'the dairy’,& the more recent’the fix’.After hearing these albums may be will realize why so many people on this blog thinks he is the true king of the south.But I will even go so far to say Face is a TRUE LEGEND and one of the realest/greatest song writers Hip Hop has ever had.Peace an Hip Hop head in Africa wrote this.

    Scarface a str8 legend. He really can’t say or do nothin he aint done, except finally start up that label that Death Row, and Bad Boy was spossed to become. He earnd the title “pioneer”. That man is mos def untouchable. No matter how much we bangin on each other reppin our hoods,blocks, cities, and states, I know we can all agree on Mr. Scarface as one of the greatest. Name a cat who truly dissed or threatend him. If so where they @ now? Scarface would be missed if he quit droppin albums, but we know he can’t just leave the game like that. He wouldve bounced YEARS ago. A prime example of dedication. Not dickridin (no homo) but Quadruple OG, if u ask me! To quote, “Last of a dying breed”…….

  • Jack

    he said he’s not saying nothing it seemed more like an idea so i don’t think its serious.

    OK WE NEED A HIP-HOP MORATORIOUM ON RAPERS “RETIRING”! EVER SINCE TOO $HORT SUPPOSEDLY RETIRED, EVERY RAPER NOW FEELS THE NEED TO RETIRE. THEY NEED TO CALL IT WHAT IT REALLY IS – “AN EXTENDED VACATION”, “A HIATUS”, “A NEEDED BREAK”. WHATEVER JUST DON’T CALL IT A RETIRING AND THEN HOPE TO MAKE A SPLASHY RETURN!!! I WON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK!!!
