Last spring, Scarface talked about wanting to re-make KRS-One‘s 1987 rap album, Criminal Minded.
“I haven’t really came to the conclusion yet of what I’m gonna do with it, but I know for a fact that I’m remaking ‘9mm Goes Bang’ along with ‘Poetry’ and sh*t like that,” he revealed in an interview. “I just feel like – and it’s not for a personal gain, it’s a respect thing. I’m [paying respect by remaking] [KRS-One’s] whole f*cking sh*t. I feel like he deserves that compliment. Like muthaf*ckas forget where it came from, man. I remember growing up in junior high school, and like my first couple years that I spent in high school, I f*cking had that rhyme scheme. I wrote my rhymes like that [mumbles cadence from ‘Poetry’]. I was that!” (Hip Hop DX)
A few weeks ago, Killer Mike named Scarface SOHH Underrated.
“Scarface should be called the greatest rapper ever, since 1987. That’s how long I’ve [been listening to him]. In 23 years I’ve never heard a wack album. Even the albums that weren’t sanctioned by him, they were just getting put out. You can’t argue with 23 years. There’s n*ggas that can say they’ve been in the game for 23 years but I can name five wack albums they put out. Get a n*gga that can say they’ve been in the game for 10 years and I can name one or two wack albums they put out. There’s n*ggas that’s been in the game for 20 years and I can name immediately some wack albums they put out. But when you talk about branching out with Scarface, you cannot grab an album and tell me it’s wack.” (SOHH Underrated)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
