After 10 months behind bars for failure to pay child support, Scarface was recently released from Harris County Jail in Texas and is now prepping an album for the end of the year, a rep for the Houston rapper confirmed to MTV News.
The Geto Boys rapper (born Brad Jordan) was jailed October 13, and it was reported by XXLMag.com that ’Face owed more than $123,000 in child support on four separate cases. Bonds were reportedly set in each case with separate amounts: one for $93,376, another for $50,000, a third bond for $30,000 and the fourth and final one for $500, bringing the grand total to $123,372.
It was also reported that the “I Seen a Man Die” MC was being held on unspecified federal charges, but MTV News has not been able to confirm that information.
Scarface made his mark as the leader of the Geto Boys, the Texas group that broke out with the 1991 single “Mind Playing Tricks on Me.” Soon after, ’Face embarked on a solo career and dropped his own debut, 1993’s Mr. Scarface Is Back. In the years that followed, he continued to release well-regarded albums, including 1994’s Diary and 1997’s Untouchable, which featured his Tupac-assisted single “Smile.” In 2008, Scarface released what he called his final album, Emeritus. He then followed up in 2010 with his mixtape Dopeman Music before being locked up later that year.
