Underrated: "When We Got Together, We Always Killed It..."

I came up in the era of [arists like] Public Enemy and A Tribe Called Quest. But Scarface had a major influence on my career. People who have met me and met Uncle Face say we are like brothers. One thing I learned back when I was in jail is there's a difference between family and relatives. He's my brother. He's been on my album and I've been on his. From the very first time we met we just connected.
I may not make music forever, but I make forever music. I've made songs that are still relevant, and Scarface and his music had a major influence on me as an artist in the game and even before I got in the game. I came from the school of Hard Knocks for real -- and graduated valedictorian. Just the other day some cat walked up to me talkin' about ["Mac n Brad"] the song I did with Scarface off my first album, The Truth. Just the way we was goin' back and forth ... when we got together we always killed it.
Me and Scarface spoke a while back, we was talking about music and telling me about an artist coming up out of Houston. I showed my respect for alot of rappers from the late 80's and early 90's when I made "B-Boy Stance", the track is a old track I recorded a long time ago that I just relesed.
Beanie Sigel is a former Roc-A-Fella Records recording artist from

Property", its sequel and "Paper Soldiers."
