Scarface has come out of retirement - the rapper is releasing new material one year after announcing plans to hang up his mic.
The star, real name Brad Jordan, announced in December 2008 that he would "quit" after releasing album Emeritus - meaning retired professor - saying at the time, "I don't retire, I quit. It feels real good. The Emeritus record, the reason I'm so proud of it is because it's my last. I'm done, man. If you leave it up to me, I quit."
But it appears the hip-hop star isn't ready to disappear from the rap scene - he's confirmed plans to put out his first independent mixtape later this year (10).
He says, "I love music, I eat, sleep and s**t music. I always wanted to drop a mixtape on my own. So I just said, 'Let's drop an independent mixtape.' I feel that I should be an adult and musician and pioneer - that's what they call me. I feel that I need to move on to another stage with the way I deliver my music to the public.
"I got a lot of s**t and I'm using about three per cent of what I know about music. I'm not using it all. I'm music. I can play that s**t long enough for a real musician to catch it and feel me, where I'm going, and we make magic like that."
