Scarface, born Brad Jordan, cut his teeth with the Geto Boys before launching a solo career in the early ’90s, marrying his evocative baritone to street-level tales of hopelessness and desperation. Over his decades-spanning career he’s remained remarkably consistent, stoking optimism for the long-in-the-works Deeply Rooted, which should (hopefully) drop this year.
