Fans awaiting new music from former Roc-A-Fellas Records artist Beanie Sigel and Houston legend Scarface have reason to get excited as both hip-hop heavyweights have united for a joint effort.
Following in the footsteps of his mentor Jay-Z, who dropped his Kanye West Watch the Throne collaboration last year, Sigel will share the mic with Face Mob for a joint project.
"Man, i was just on the radio with Beanie Sigel & Scarface announcing they are doing an album.... Mac N Brad album coming.... #HipHopMoment," DJ Statik Selektah tweeted March 29th.
"Shout the homie @djkhaled. Webster hall poppin. I see u @youngsavv" (Statik Selketah's Twitter)
Scarface also confirmed plans to put out a Mac & Brad-titled joint LP.
"Follow the real beanie @BeanieSigelSP Mac and Brad comin soon......," he tweeted Friday morning. (Scarface's Twitter)
A couple years ago, Texas rapper Devin the Dude talked to SOHH about the fellow Houston legend's greatness.
"He never left [rap], so he's not coming back from nowhere man, he's always been musically inclined and as long as there's some musical buttons around or a guitar or a piano or anything. I believe that's what he's always gonna be doing because he's very talented in those areas. He can play the bass, he can play the piano and he can rap and he knows choruses and melodies and everything. I don't think he's gonna quit anytime soon. I think the fans need him and the people need him to continue doing what he's been doing and let him know how genuine he is to hip-hop and how he can help other people mold their careers around what he's doing. I don't think he's gonna be going anywhere any time soon." (SOHH)
Outside of Face, Beans recently revealed his co-signing of Young Money's Drake.
"You can't front on him. Drake's gonna be around for a long time. His talent is going to outrun whatever you say about him," Sigel said in an interview. "His lane is so crazy. I got Drake's album. I bought his album like three times. Like, he got everything. Like, it's everything on there you can rock to. You can rock to everything -- he go R&B, he go hip-hop, he go lyrics." (Talk of the Town)
