Scarface Releases Two New Songs, “Still Black” And “Same Ol Same”


Rap legend Scarface has never been a stranger to speaking his mind on politically-charged songs. He’s from the school of the likes of KRS-One, Willie D, and Public Enemy, who were fearless when it came to taking on social issues. Speaking of PE, Uncle Face re-created Public Enemy’s classic song, “Black Steel In The Hour of Chaos,” for his new track, “Black Still.”

The song’s accompanying visuals, directed by Dr. Teeth, contains footage of recent protests in cities like Charleston and Ferguson. The video also follows a young boy searching for informative books inside of a library.  As far as lyrics go, the former Rap-A-Lot MC speaks on an array of topics such as reparations, poor education, and culture vultures.

The South Side Houston native also released “Same Ol Same,” a penetrating foray into the life of a certified stand-up guy, who was raised by O.G.s in the streets.
