In part 2 of Hardknock TV’s interview, Face talks to Nick Huff Barili about the current state of Hip Hop saying that he loves Kendrick Lamar but that older white executives that are in control of Hip-Hop are not in touch with the streets and don’t care about the culture. Scarface goes on to say that he thinks its a conspiracy to make black people look stupid and brainwash a generation of hip hoppers with “this crud”. Scarface’s advice to upcoming artists is to uphold the integrity of the craft and not to let the executives dictate our culture. Scarface references how Chuck Berry and Robert Johnson helped found rock and roll and blues but how now both those genres are predominately white and have forgotten their black roots. He goes on to point out that its hard to name many all black rock bands making music today.

As the conversation topic changes, Face talks about recording and touring with Tupac who used to open for him. Scarface says Pac would have rode on a lot of people out now like Mitt Romney and that Pac was going to politicize his fan base before he was killed. Part 2 of this interview ends with Facemob sharing a story of the last time he spent time with Pac which was when they recorded the track Smile.

    lol. It’s not a white black thang now. Those people running labels only care about the money and that’s what most rappers care about too. All pop music is dumbed down, white or black. Also, I don’t see how he is saying that the music is making some of the black community look stupid. There are plenty of ghetto people that act as stupid as these rappers.

  • Tom says:

    haha. I just heard the rest of the interview, so basically he wants music to be segregated. He hates it when white people put their hands in black music, and black people created rock and blues, so white people can’t play it either. lol.

    I believe part of what he is saying/commenting on is who is in control of what we see on TV or hear on the Radio. I know yall remember in the late 80s early 90s, there was a blend, yup you still had ignant ish, but for the most part you could easily have/find positve music. Also, use as a case study: Little Richards Tootie Fruity compared to Pat Boones Tooty Fruity. I cant tell you how many times I have been listening to Rock and someone White or Black is suprised Im listening to White music, and I also gotta educate, Rock music is Black Music. Im about 7 minutes in right now.

    As a long time Scarface fan, I’d like to remind everybody he is an admitted manic depressive/Bi-polar who refuses to take medication. Just keep that in mind when you listen to him speak. Dude gets miserable and starts talking shit, its part of what makes him a great artist but you also have to take his opinions with a grain of salt, there coming from a man with a mental illness who refuses treatment.
