The 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards were in Atlanta this weekend and the police made a guest appearance. Legendary rapper Scarface (Geto Boys) was honored with the “I Am Hip Hop Award” for his contributions to the hip hop/ rap culture. Immediately after receiving the award, law enforcement gave him a surprise visit and arrested the 90’s rap star and escorted him directly to jail for an outstanding warrant.
According to WSB-TV, Scarface was arrested for not making child support payments and his bond was set at $482,190. Bad news travel fast, this story has surfaced widespread throughout the hip hop community and is another attempt to humiliate the black man. I don’t know what type of father he is but I’m willing to bet that his children or child wouldn’t want to see their father detained during an honorable event.
I hope Scareface (Brad Jordan) can put this embarrassment behind him, rectify his situation and move forward. While you are here, check out his new video “God” from his Deeply Rooted album featuring John Legend and support real hip hop music! Free Scarface!!!!
