Exclusive in-depth interview with Scarface backstage at Paid Dues. Part 3 of the interview starts with Scarface asking why white contemporary singers sell more albums than their black counterparts. Scarface proceeds to say that he heard an executive at a tv network that deals with music say that they are now going to target the network for a young white audience. Facemob is concerned that the new generation doesn’t know who Kool Herc is and soon wont know who people like KRS-One and himself are because they are being written out of Hip Hop history. “If you gave a fuck about this culture in any shape form or fashion you would not put the shit out that you put out. You would slam the door on artists that came in there with that shit!” Check out the interview for the rest of what Facemob has to say!
Scarface voiced his anger towards the current state of hip hop in an interview with HardKnockTV. The Southern rap pioneer explained why he feels White music executives have tainted the genre. “I feel like we losing it,” Face said in the clip. “I feel like the people that are in control of what Hip Hop does is so f**king White and so f**king Jewish and so they don’t give a f**k about what the culture and the craft really is about.”
“Let me say this sh*t right because I want this to be as offensive as I can f**kin’ make it for these old-ass punks that’s running these record labels that’s in the powerful positions to dictate what the Black community hears and listens to. I f**king hate that sh*t. That sh*t pisses me off,” he added. “There’s no f**king way that you can tell me that it’s not a conspiracy against the Blacks in Hip Hop. You put out f**king records that make us look stupid. You make us look dumb. You brainwash a generation of Hip Hoppers with this f**king crud and then when these other rappers come out, splitting it down the middle, these other rappers’ sh*t sound like ‘Wow!’ Y’all look great!’ ‘Y’all look stupid!’ … Then motherf**kers start going over here and pretty soon, Hip Hop is White now.”
Remember this picture of Beyonce, which she posted to her instagram? It was clearly inspired by her new buzz songs “Bow Down / I Been On.” The Houston, Texas native is rumored to be cooking up an all-star cast of Texas rappers to represent for the Lone Star State on the official “Bow Down” remix. According to ‘My Fox Houston’ reporterIsiah Carey, the Hit-Boy produced banger, is set to feature verses from Slim Thug, Willie D, Scarface, Bun B, Kirko Bangz & Lil Keke. Carey reported that when he was told the news of the rappers in the studio working on the remix, he was asked to remain silent, but when photos from the studio session started to surface, he let the cat out of the bag.
