The anointed King of the South, Scarface,fell ill on June 29 during the Geto Boys’ Office Space Tour in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and had to receive medical attention for undisclosed issues. Immediately returning to his native Houston, Face was hospitalized on June 30 and has since been released.
Scarface battled high blood pressure and was on the verge of a Diabetes diagnosis a few years ago before losing over 100 pounds. His partner in rhyme, Willie D, hit up the group’s Kick Starter page for their upcoming project, stating, “I am not at liberty to speak on his condition, and wouldn’t even if I was, as it is a private matter, but I will say that he is in good spirits, and sends his love to all who have supported him throughout his career, and personal life. Although I’m his bandmate, I’m also a Scarface fan, so I know it’s hard for you guys not having details, but I will try to keep you updated as much as I can without invading his privacy. Thanks and say a prayer for my homey!"
