After 25 Years, Scarface Is Still Making Music For Your Mind (Audio)

His name may not be mentioned as often as some, but Scarface has earned the right to be a perennial contender on any top 10 MC list. Whether as part of The Geto Boys or solo, Brad Jordan has been a consistent storyteller, metaphor flipper and straight spitter for the better part of a quarter century.

After a Summer of fits and starts, with aborted Geto Boy tour dates, a book tour, a stalled Kickstarter campaign and more, Face is preparing for the release of his first solo album since 2008’s Emeritus. His new LP, Deeply Rooted, will hit stores on September 4. Now, Scarface has released “Steer,” track number 6 on the album, and as with several of his classics like “Smile,” “On My Block” and “Mind Playing Tricks On Me,” it’s a dark and pensive song with the Houston MC taking a look at life through an introspective lens. The song features a hook from singer, Rush Davis, which touches on familiar Scarface themes like suicide and the struggle with life.
