After a health scare took Scarface out of the Geto Boys reunion tour, he took some time to get his health back and has recently spoke with Rolling Stone about the ordeal and his future plans.
I was really doing bad out on that road, man. Eating truck stop food. I put on like 10 pounds
Scarface was hospitalized on June 29th, Willie D had fans in a panic when he made the announcement without specifying exactly why he was hospitalized. It turns out that Scarface had come down with pneumonia.
“I think it had a lot to do with sweating my ass off and not completely drying off. Just onstage, offstage, hot, cold, hot, cold,” he says. “Right when I got off the stage in Nebraska [on June 21st], I was feeling a little funny, man. ‘Damn, I’m getting the chills, man. Am I coming down with the flu?’ It kind of went away but I started coughing up mucous. The shit I was coughing up was damn near the color of some good-ass weed, maybe some spinach or something — it was that green.”
Scarface admits that he is not back to 100% touring health. He has worked on his next solo project in the mean time, Deeply Rooted which is scheduled for release on September 4th via his own label, FaceMob Music.
