Willie D & Scarface Could Both Become Houston City Councilmen
Last month, Brad Jordan (aka Scarface) announced his campaign to run for Houston City Council. With that step, the legendary lyricist and Geto Boys hit-maker revealed that he is putting his Rap name to bed, and beginning a trajectory that Jordan believes could go as far as the White House.
Now, it appears that fellow Geto Boy Willie D is running too. “What’s better than one Geto Boy running for City Council? It’s on family,” the 52-year-old captioned in an Instagram announcement. “This is the next step in my evolution to serve and I need your help!”
The two 30-plus-year H-Town MCs are running in different districts, making a potential council filled with two Rap O.G.’s this fall. In Willie’s social post, Brad offered his blessing. “Congrats Will!! What better way to make change in our community From it, of it and love it!”

Willie Dennis is running for District B. Meanwhile, Scarface is campaigning for District D. Currently seeking campaign donations, he has until August 19 to register to appear on the November 5 ballot. Sixteen council seats in Houston are up for election.
In recent years, the veteran MC has remained active in music. Earlier this year, he released video “Single Mothers” on his Relentless Music imprint. In the last few years, Willie has worked with Killa Kyleon and Beyoncé, among others.
Previously, Willie has a pursued career in professional boxing during the 1990s through 2000. During that time, he was active with the Geto Boys in addition to his decorated solo run at Rap-A-Lot Records.
Less than a month ago, Willie and ‘Face’s band-mate, Bushwick Bill (aka Richard Shaw) passed away after a bout with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. According to Pitchfork, Willie and Face will do a Geto Boys set at the upcoming Adult Swim Festival in Los Angeles, California on November 15 and 16.
