Rapper Scarface Issues Statement after Release from Jail
On last week rapper Scarface, real name Brad Jordan, was arrested for failure to pay child support after accepting an award at the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, Ga. After his release on Friday, the Deeply Rooted MC spoke out about the ordeal, and released a statement exclusively to AllHipHop where he cleared up misinformation about his arrest.
“First and foremost I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta. While we have resolved the issue I would like to correct some misinformation,” the rapper told AllHipHop. “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.”
After Jordan was honored with the “I Am Hip-Hop” award, law enforcement officers were reportedly waiting to arrest him after he accepted his award, which according to multiple media sites delayed the show.
I’m happy Scarface was able to get his personal situation cleared up and is back out and able to continue promoting his new book “Diary of a Mad Man,” and his latest album Deeply Rooted.
