Scarface has been chronicling the recording process and the thoughts behind his new project, in January explains his thoughts about the state of Rap music.
“The Rap s*** [is] sounding stupider and stupider, and Country music is sounding more brilliant. Rock music is sounding more brilliant and Alternative music is sounding way more brilliant. Shit sound good as fuck. Everybody [in Hip Hop] wants to turn up now, even in R&B. Who stole the soul? The soul is gone. Twenty-five years ago it was called soul. Thirty years ago it was called soul. Then they turned it into rhythm and blues, R&B. What is it now? Is R&B gone, too?”
