Scarface Released From Prison, Already Working On New Music

UPDATE: The Geto Boys founder has been released from prison after nearly a year behind bars.

While reports of public figures heading to jail are far from uncommon, it is quite unusual for such news to be concealed for almost four months. It was confirmed on Thursday that Texas rapper Scarface was incarcerated last October, and has been held in the Montgomery County Jail since, for failing to pay child support.

According to XXLmag.com who spoke with a representative of the jail, the veteran rapper is facing charges in four different child support cases. Even more unusual, he is also facing additional federal charges that have not yet been publicly disclosed.

Before the incarceration, Scarface had been working on his twelfth album, The Habit, said to be featuring both John Legend and Drake. There is no update yet on the specifics regarding the federal charges, bail, or when he is scheduled to appear in court.

[February 3]

UPDATE: After nearly a year in prison, Scarface is reportedly a free man. According to HHW, 'Face was released from Harris County Jail where he remained incarcerated for failing to pay child support. "Face is home and he’s already busy working on releasing new material," says a representative. "It’s not going to take him long to fall right back into the swing of things."

    Hey 'FACE...I'm glad you're back...I remember reading an interview you did right after releasing "EMERITUS" where you said you were retiring to go start a rock band (NO BULSHIT) with you on the Bass guitar...I laughed sooo hard...it pissed me off...I said to myself...everbody got ANDRE 3K SYNDROME (dope emcees who want to do everything else but what they're the best at: EMCEEING)...that "EMERITUS" LP was sooooo disappointing & then a ray of light came in the appearrance of that DOPE MUSIC mixtape you put out....BUT you had to many WHACK, SO-SO, MEDIOCRE RAPPERS on damn near every track...You PISSED ME OFF AGAIN...now with all this child support, broke-drama that's been a part of your life, UP-CLOSE...I just know that 'FACE will not only explain his side of the child-support issue in rhyme-verse...BUT we'll be getting a CERTIFIED BANGER of an LP from the boy...T from Da BAY...yeah

    The God of the south. Somethin like KOOL G. RAP status. Please Scarface eliminate these skinny jean wearin lil wayne fags...PLEASE!!!! But damn pay that child support or wrap it up or somethin, cause i know you aint gonna stop fuckin. LOL!!

  • Powerphi

    As long as he's living and breathing, he's the King of the South, at least in my opinion. As for these kids, well damn - if this is accurate, dude needs to step up and take care of business.

    • realtalk101

      I think K-Rino's the king of the south, Scarface even has said hes the MC that inspired him to rap. Hes more underground then face but hes highly connected through out the Texas rap scene and respected by all. I'm not sure if you're aware but he has a click called "South Park Coalition/Killa Klan" and literally it consists of like 100+ rappers like Point Blank, Ganxsta Nip, 20-2-Life, Street Military, Klondike Kat, Bam and many other rappers that were on the Rap-A-Lot label in its early years all the way up to Z-Ro & Trae Its the center group that connects all Houston rap clicks and even branches to outside Texas cities, possibly even other southern states. Hes definitely the spearhead of the southern rap movement, groups like Three 6 Mafia were using their voice samples for their underground tapes before they made it big. Hes considered in many circles to be a top 5 lyricist of all time, those that have had an opportunity to actually hear him.

Hope these fools get it together and maybe release a fucking album or get a job flippin burgers. God bless these idiots.

    If Jay-z snitched on Rap-A-Lot, how come J.Prince allowed Jay-Z to be feautured on Bun-B's "Trill" album? How come Rap-A-Lot allowed Bun-B to performed with Jay when Jay had a show in H-Town?

      Man, stop. The illumanti were nothin more than 8th century, hash smokin middle eastern assassins. That was tha name of their order, just like a simple social club. They got together &talked about how special they were & outsiders weren't. They're not tied to Freemasons or any chickenshitworld take over.

      Study how every celebrity is wearing all black.look at all these album covers and magazine photos of people covering one eye.Thats them signing to the elite(or illuminati).Watch the handshakes,everything!Open your eyes!The more you say it aint true the faster they get your mind thinkin they aint out here.Aint no coincidences either.

    • Its real

      Ye it exists. Eminem has a little illuminati chain on his neck and jay z makes a triangle shape with his hands and both of these rappers worship the devil and put spells on their albums so they can sell millions

  • Atl2Trill

    Damn they jamming Facemob up over bs. The Feds some dirty sons of bitches.

  • Mindplayingtricks

    Don't assume Scarface aint paid what he shoulda. You just gotta look at the hoe Kelis and what she tried to take Nas for to know that it doesnt equal justice what rappers pay for their baby momas. Scarface aint Prez down South of a label anymore. That finished before. Chances are he's been asked to pay way too much for what his papers been for more than a minute. Respect to Scarface tho he got 50 Cent wrong. That was about allegiances more than reality. As for anonymous posters talking shit about Rocafella - get your facts up, Kareem Burke got busted for weed and hash, not coke. Rocafella done started on coke money thru a real dealer, not a lil foot soldier Jay Z. Jay Z been snitching from back in the day, talking bout he ran drug rings from Brooklyn to Maryland. That was De-haven, Emory and others, he just went along to be looked after like a girl. The Feds don't need shit to follow your ass around and then when they get shit on you, you're gone. So Rocafella shoulda went the way of Murder Inc, Death Row, and RapaLot at the time but didn't. That tells you something, tells you Jay Z and them helped the Feds in one way or another to save their own asses or Jay Z snitched to the Def Jam white owners to get the competition out the way. Either way he's a snitch.

  • RM

    sucks man! These bitches see money and want all of it...dont get me wrong , dude should be supporting his seeds but sometimes the amount that one has to pay is BANANAS. They expect you to stay sane and live a regualr life when all the hard earned money you've made is going to the trifling whores! Thats shit eats at a man hard! fucks you up man. Ive been thru that shit...going thru it now. And what sucks the most is that there are fathers out there that spend LOTS of time with their kids (myself) buy them whatever they need and these bitches still find something to complain about...seriously the laws need to change..if a bitch can work, put that bitch to work!

  • achpe

    Much respect for Face as a MC, but when are niggas going to learn to strap dat thing up? I like to fcuk too, but the HIV and children I cant take care of are not for me. If you know she a hoe or you know you not going to be wit her for the long haul, then why have children with her? I know things happen and women change so I can be cool with one time, but four different counts that's all on FACE no matter how you look at it. Real Talk.

  • Mindplayingtricks

    Damn, anonymous talking ol shit bout 50 Cent that aint true needs to hear Professor Griff on just why Irv Gotti, Suge Knight and J Prince got their labels raided and those charges put on em. 50 Cent mighta done some talking bout Preme etc in interviews but it aint anything the Feds didn't know. Scarface's problem with 50 Cent was based on a perception but that perception aint what it seems. Professor Griff says the reason the Feds went after Irv etc and their labels was that they wanted to start their own Black music company together and Jay Z snitched on em to stop it. He knew that any competition out the way meant he was getting that wealth and attention. Think about it. Why was Rocafella which was funded by drug money (no it wasnt Jay Z's money)and whose big rapper Jay Z was supposed to be paranoid about cops cause of his drug dealing shit but was and is always boasting about shifting weight, LEFT ALONE by the Feds but there was more evidence than the shit they said about Murder Inc, Death Row and RapaLot? Do the math. Get your knowledge up. Scarface aint in trouble cause of 50 Cent.

    50 Cent was dry snitching on Murder Inc. and then Death Row and Rap-A Lot came falling down after that. The feds asked J. Prince what was his business affiliation with Suge and he plead the 5th. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmg2aVb6sHE Troy "Lil Troy" Birklett is snitching just ask J. Prince and Pimp C was the first person to call Lil Troy out. Troy was suing Face so you already know he will snitch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD4XelnlPuQ THE CHILD SUPPORT IS WHAT THEY GOT HIM ON BUT THEY WANT HIM ON THOSE FED CHARGES!!!

      There was talk around before Professor Griff, he just opened up the discussion for more ears to hear. Now tell us again why your lame anti 50 Cent ass aint want to answer about Rocafella. Fact - Rocafella's money to start off was claimed to be from Def Jam but they hadda prove themselves and they did their start up shit from drug money. That money aint come from Jay Z but a real dealer who spent time in the pen. This is what happens when you deal drugs for real, not just lil bags of crack. This is why Jay Z never went to the pen for drug dealing, all the 'Roc boys' shit is just borrowed from real life of others. Now as we know the Feds want to shut these music labels down when they think there's a drug connection and Jay Z never stopped talking about shifting weight once Rocafella was made. Why hasn't Rocafella been shut down/investigated by the Feds? Two reasons - ol bullshit (minor drug shit he did, not major) and value as a snitch.
