Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon has decided to help ring in Scarface's return to the rap game by announcing a forthcoming collaboration with the rap veteran.
Writing via Twitter, the "Chef" broke the news to his followers.
"@darealscarface facemobb check ya dm," he wrote late Tuesday (February 16) night. "#realn*gganews Me n @darealscarface collabo is in the making as we speak.... Follow my dude @darealscarface!" (Raekwon's Twitter)
Producer Mike Dean recently revealed Face Mob is working on a new album.
"I'm working on Scarface's album, mixing some pop/R&B stuff and sh*t like that. Working on a song with Drake right now, too," Dean revealed in an interview. "It's sounding good. We just scored a feature from John Legend on there. I hooked him up with John, making sh*t happen. I don't know what's up with the album or a release date or anything, we're just working on a few songs right now. For the last few albums, I haven't had much on his albums because we haven't been in the studio together. He'll do music somewhere else and bring it to me." (Hip Hop DX)
In late 2008, Face Mob said he was ready to hang up the microphone for good.
"Scarface is dead, yeah, he's dead," Face said in an interview. "The artist formerly known as Face is going to produce some sh*t on Slim's album but it won't be Face no more, Face is dead. I wanted to broaden my horizon in music, I grew up in a band, I play everything. As influential as I am in the music industry, it would be wrong to stay in the music and not bring it back."

Rap veteran Busta Rhymes also shared his thoughts on rappers retiring last May.
"All them dudes that talk about retirement and sh*t, God bless 'em," Busta said in an interview. "I'm not one of them dudes. When you're in this business as long as me, you're gonna retire and do what? I love what I do so much, I don't foresee retirement ever. I'ma probably be one of the first motherf*ckers on some Quincy Jones sh*t. I wanna be able to put out a Q's Juke Joint when I'm 65 years old. But the difference is, when I do that, if I do that God willing, it would be me wanting to do it because I'm not really obligated to a contractual agreement with a record company and I'm not just putting music out because I just feel like [it]. I wanna make music with some friends that I done had relationships with over the years." (Hip Hop Official)
