During a recent interview with 107.5’s WGCI, Scarface explained why he left Def Jam and announced his new album. Face shared that he had to part ways with Def Jam after providing what he considers to be “everything that’s hot right now.” He added that he wanted more but that Def Jam was unwilling to supply that. He also announced his next album, Rooted, which he added would be coming soon.
“I needed a bigger part of [Def Jam] and they wanted to play like I wasn’t bringing business,” Face explained when asked why he left label. “Everything that’s hot right now is what I brought to Def Jam from Rick Ross to T.I. because you know, Def Jam wouldn’t touch T.I.”
Face then shared that he has an album title, Rooted. However, he was tight-lipped about a release date, only revealing that it would be coming “soon.” However, as DX reported, Face also recently tweeted that his album was set to drop in the summer.
