Scarface Details Nas Joint LP, Questions Rap Fans' Loyalty
Scarface confirms that a Geto Boys reunion will not happen, says his new music will be "malicious."
Although Scarface again confirmed that a Geto Boys reunion will not happen during his interview with DJ Whoo Kid, the Houston rapper did reveal that he and Queensbridge lyricist Nas have nearly completed a joint project they’re working on.
Scarface revealed that the project, which he says has been in the works for at least 10 years, “probably will happen,” but he's unsure of who would release the project and when it would become available to fans.
“I talk to Nas probably about once or twice a month,” he said. “Maybe more than that. And we always talk about doing an album together and shit…We probably 99.9999 [percent done]. It’s gonna happen…It probably will happen, but where and who puts that shit out is the debate. You feel me? You know what I’m saying? Like me and Nas definitely in talks. And it’s not even a money thing with it. It’s like some shit that’s got to be done. We been talking about this shit for 10 years or more.”
After being questioned about the possibility of a Geto Boys reunion, Scarface spoke on the loyalty of Hip Hop fans versus rock n’ roll fans. He questioned why rock groups decades out of their prime still have loyal followings while Hip Hop artists don’t.
“It ain’t really no issue with me, man. I don’t have no problem with the youth or the old folks,” Scarface said. “I’m good. I look at the loyalty in the fanbase of rock n’ roll and then I look at the loyalty in the fanbase of Hip Hop. And I realize, you know, ‘God damn’…Why the fuck we don’t got no fan following like that?”
In regards to his own music, Scarface says fans can expect “malicious intent” on his upcoming songs.
“Every song that you hear from me from now on is gonna be meant with malicious intent,” the rapper said. “Every fuckin lyric that comes out of my mouth…I’mma be straight up fuckin real with you, man. It’s gon’ be tough to fuck with that boy, man.”
At the top of this year, Scarface criticized Hip Hop during an interview with XXL magazine, stating that rap music was becoming “stupider and stupider.”
“The Rap shit [is] sounding stupider and stupider, and Country music is sounding more brilliant,” he said in January. “Rock music is sounding more brilliant and Alternative music is sounding way more brilliant. Shit sound good as fuck. Everybody [in Hip Hop] wants to turn up now, even in R&B.”
