In January, Scarface spoke about the state of Rap music.
“The Rap shit [is] sounding stupider and stupider, and Country music is sounding more brilliant,” Scarface said at the time. “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. Who stole the soul? The soul is gone. Twenty-five years ago it was called soul. Thirty years ago it was called soul. Then they turned it into rhythm and blues, R&B. What is it now? Is R&B gone, too?”
