Houston rap veteran Scarface has stepped forward to clear the air on his publicized arrest earlier this month during the BET Hip-Hop Awards taping in Georgia.
Face Mob released a statement this week and said he resolved the legal matter.
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 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. -Brad Jordan AKA Scarface Mr. Jordan was released on Friday, October 16th. (Statement)
