Scarface Issues Statement Following Release From Jail

Scarface Issues Statement Following Release From Jail

Face says he was unaware of Atlanta arrest order.

Published October 19, 2015

Scarface won BET’s “I Am Hip Hop Award” at the 2015 Hip Hop Awards and while his win was announced prior to his acceptance, what came after was something he probably wasn’t expecting.

The Houston rapper and Geto Boys front man was arrested for alleged unpaid child support. Friday (October 9), he was released from prison and issued a statement in regards to why he was imprisoned and where he goes from here.

“First and foremost I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta," Face told AllHipHop in a statement. "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.”
