Scarface has drawn the curtain on his hip hop career to wholly face politics. “For me it’s done, I like the idea of politics,” he said. MC Scarface, whose real name is Brad Jordan, emphatically stated his rapping days are over as he pivots to politics.
“This is gonna be my start in politics,” he explained. “I wanted to get my legs up under before I run for governor, before I run for mayor.
“Growing up, I got a chance to witness a lot of struggle in my neighborhood,” he said. “A lot of people struggled, myself included. As I got older, I noticed that there was still a lot of struggling going on. If it wasn’t drugs, it was no jobs. If it wasn’t no jobs, it was people out loitering, hanging out, getting into trouble.I’m 48 years old and that’s been going on before me. I wanna take it upon myself to fix the situation. I think I have some new, fresh ideas. I think that the traditional way of doing politics is over now. Let’s come up with some real solutions.”
For now, Scarface is preparing for the Houston City Council race and coping with Bushwick’s passing. “He was smart, and he was very difficult to deal with. He was extremely set in his ways, and you had to respect Bill. We gon’ miss him.”
