Scarface Is Awarded His Own Holiday In Houston By Mayor
Scarface is a legend in the rap game. As a member the Geto Boys, Scarface put Houston on the map and pioneered the Texas sound that we are familiar with today. Along with Bushwick Bill and Willie D., Scarface painted pictures Houston that were vivid and ten grotesque, but their descriptive style influenced several hip-hop legends. Born Brad Terrence Jordan, Scarface was honored by the city Houston on Tuesday. Mayor Sylvester Turner and members the city council and the NAACP awarded Scarface with his own holiday.
According to KPRC, Scarface day will be observed on June 26.
