Houston rapper Scarface is one of the most recognizable, respected voices in hip-hop. When he was just 17 years-old, Scarface was recruited to join Bushwick Bill and Willie D in the Geto Boys. The group was one of Rick Rubin’s earliest rap signings for his post Def Jam label, Def American.

On today’s episode, Scarface and Rick reminisce about working together, and Face talks about how his recent experience with COVID was eerily similar to his classic verse on “Mind Playing Tricks On Me.” Scarface also talks about the Miranda Lambert song that makes him yearn for his childhood Texas home.
