Rapper Scarface has announced he is running for Houston City Council District D. The council seat is currently held by Dwight Boykins, who announced that he himself will be running for mayor with the support of Houston firefighters.
For over 30 years, Houston, Texas has been a big player in the Rap music space. Crews ranging from the Geto Boys to Screwed Up Click to Swishahouse have led musical movements far beyond the city. Artists like Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, Lil Keke, Mike Jones, Trae Tha Truth, Slim Thug have paved the way for newcomers like Megan The Stallion and Tobe Nwigwe.
However, few H-Town MCs are as recognized as Brad “Scarface” Jordan. A member of the Geto Boys and Facemob, this Hip-Hop veteran has epitomized putting on for one’s city in four different decades. Now, the 48-year-old MC and H-Town stalwart looks to add yet another job title to his extensive resumé.
After teasing a run on June 5th via twitter, Brad Terrence Jordan, born of Houston’s South Acres, officially announced his run for Houston City Council in District D.
