Rappers paying proper homage to the legends who helped pave the way is something Hip-Hop can never have enough of. Especially when it comes to the unabashed ghetto poetry of Mr. Brad Jordan, a.k.a. Scarface.
While Rashad channeled his machismo to mirror Uncle Face’s persona on his record, Tef Poe directs his lyricism in open letter format.
Over a ruminative sound bed composed by Chicagoan Dave King, Poe expresses his thoughts on the current landscape of Hip-Hop–while asking his “ghetto Shakespeare” to step up and save it.
“St. Louis DJ’s play nothing but Atlanta music/Atlanta DJ’s won’t never play St. Louis music/And I know [you] see the same thing happening in Houston,” Poe exclaims.
The irony of the urgent record is the same complaints Tef Poe aligns with the reasoning for Scarface’s extended hiatus from recording albums.
And sometimes the students can inspire the teachers. Scarface took to his Twitter humbled saying, “Wow….. A MUST PURCHASE I’m humbled my dude. Please listen and retweet this kid is saying it.”
