Last week, moments after receiving a lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards, Scarface was arrested. The Houston rapper has issued a statement regarding the matter to clear up what he says have been some misconstrued facts.
Reportedly, Scarface, born Brad Jordan, was pinched because of an outstanding warrant due to failure to pay child support. According to Face, he was unaware that he was a wanted man.
“First and foremost I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta,” said Face Mob via a press statement. “While we have resolved the issue I would like to correct some misinformation. The amount reported that was owed is inaccurate and I had no knowledge about there being an arrest order for me as I have traveled to Atlanta many times; with the latest trip being in September to perform at the One Music Festival. Due to the nature of the case (having a minor child involved), I will make no further comment at this time.”
Scarface was released on Friday, October 16.
