Scarface Gets Busy on the Guitar

The Geto Boys member is more than just an emcee.

Scarface picking up a guitar might be the best thing you see online today.

The legendary emcee is much more than "just a rapper." The former member of the Geto Boys recently sat down with Noisey to discuss how classic rock & roll music has been extremely influential throughout his extensive career.

In addition to being a DJ, a producer, a published author, a golfer and a record executive, the Texas musician is also a long-time guitar player.

In a new interview, Scarface picks up a guitar and talks about how his musical family, including being related to 1970s soul singer Johnny Nash, inspired him to get into music at an early age. He also talks about how disappointed he was when his mother would not buy him KISS' 1977 classic record, Love Gun.

Take a look at Scarface masterfully playing the guitar in the feature below.
