Scarface’s “Steer” is both soulful and topical. In a first person narrative, the record looks at a particular circumstance that may be different than meets the eye. Although specific in the verse and video, perhaps it is designed to be universal. For the video, that subjective circumstance is exactly the theme. ‘Face, who is not always one to test his dramatic chops in visuals, acts the part of a protagonist simply trying to get over. Things go wrong, and values are challenged. Like the lyrics to the song, there’s a story here.

The paranoia, fear, and lessons that have always been at play in Brad Jordan’s music are still there, just presented differently this go-round.

Like his music, Scarface appears ageless lately. Deeply Rooted releases on September 4.
