When Mr. Scarface talks, it always makes for a good listen. Sitting down with Hard Knock TV, he contemplates why "white contemporary singers" tend to sell more than their urban counterparts, his concerns for keeping the legacies of hip hop's legends alive and relevant, and much more.

    I'm not religious, I don't even say this phrase, but bless this mans soul. He should get some other legends together, make a lil movement or something, shit would pop off quick

  • sh

    dudes a little obsessed with his own legacy.

    Keep it moving and stop fucking whining! Real grown men - rappers or not, will just doing their own thing and move forward. Scarface sounds like an old ass man reminiscing on his old glory days and complaining about how kids today ain't the same, or how they don't have any respect... You can't hop on a song with a 2 Chainz or a Trinidad James and then bitch about how all the music today sounds the same, because then you just become a hypocrite and a pushover who doesn't have the balls to tell it like it is! If you're making dope music and it sells a million copies, or it only sells a thousand copies - it's still dope music regardless! And that should be enough to satisfy yourself as a rapper or a fan, or both...

    Itz like this dude aint heard of the internet and how the face of hip-hop is changing lol....either adapt or stay trapped in the past. That being said, If black ppl want hip-hop tp be "black", then black ppl need to support it starting with their wallet, simple as !

    Shut up Chris...He's right 100% and this shit is unfolding right in front of everyone. He's speaking his mind to reverse the trend so hopefully EVERYBODY will catch on because it's true. Hiphop is so bitchmade nowadays and too many artists are coming up tarnish the real shit. Fuck it and just start another genre called "Bitch Hop" and stay over there. We need this HipHop to survive originality

  • hiphop

    Why should he have to ADAPT to bullshit pussy music? The majority of hiphop now SHOULDN'T be considered hiphop. That's what he is saying. Keep the originality! Quit biting cause you all sound the same and your music SUCKS.

  • Sformusic

    Adapt by doing him and making music, he wanna make not what other ppl are doing. Bare in mind he was in a DJ Khaled album, the song was kool and nostalgic but it was on a DJ Khaled album period. What annoys me about legends sometimes is that they say all this and they make records dat not even good and we have seen this happen too many times, at the end of the day it's not about what you have done in the past but wat you are doing now, we all know that !!!

    @Stormusic Thank you!!

    I think one reason Scarface was on a Dj Khaled album is because DJ Khaled is a highly respected DJ. So when people talk down on people like him you also gotta keep in mind your talking about somebody who's a veteran in the game not some guy who just got in the game yesterday. My thing is this, if YOU aint willing to get involved in the culture artistically then I dont think you have the right to really speak down on the people who've put a decade plus in the game professionally. People still will talk down on people like a Dj Khaled of course because they dont like his music but from the perspective of Scarface, he probably been knowing Khaled for a long time and have dealt with him professionally in the past so thats another reason why he would do the record. I dont agree with everything Scarface says but im not gonna talk down on his opinion too much because Scarface has paid his dues and he made album after album so his work speaks for itself. Hip Hop is a loved culture that became a business. Now when you mix love with money then what happens? You open the door for the influence of money to be a factor in what you love and start to effect the craft. Thats that so you should already know that by now. You dont need to worry about hip hop at this point because everything goes in cycles. The real will always come back around so no need to get upset when you see some fuckery music start poppin. YOU still have a choice of who you choose to listen too so if you not fucking with Trinidad James guess what, there's other artists you can listen too. In closing I think Mos Def said it best in terms of these kinda issues. Mos: Fear Not Of Man -
    A lot of things have changed
    A lot of things have not, mainly us
    We gon' get it together right? I believe that
    Listen.. people be askin me all the time
    "Yo Mos, what's gettin ready to happen with Hip-Hop?"
    (Where do you think Hip-Hop is goin?)
    I tell em, "You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop?
    Whatever's happening with us"
    If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out
    If we doin alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doin alright
    People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin in the hillside
    Comin down to visit the townspeople
    We +are+ Hip-Hop
    Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop
    So Hip-Hop is goin where we goin
    So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is goin
    Ask yourself.. where am I goin? How am I doin?
    Til you get a clear idea
