Back tracking to last week, when Scarface was receiving a lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards, he was arrested. Well after a little over a week of silence, the legendary Houston rapper has released a statement.
Reportedly, Brad Jordan, bka Scarface was cuffed because of an outstanding warrant due to failure to pay child support. According to Scarface, 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.
