Scarface said he was hanging it up after his 2007 album, Made, and then again after 2008’s Emeritus (which, by the way, means retired professor). “This is it for me,” he told XXL. “That should end it right here.” The Houston vet picked the mic back up two years later, releasing his first mixtape in 2010.
