Rapper Scarface running for City Council

10 Jun 2019

Go Geto Boy!

Rapper Scarface is running as a City Councilmember in Texas.

The Geto Boys star first hinted he might stand for office in Houston earlier this month and on Saturday he confirmed the news.

"It's official," he wrote on Instagram. "I'm offering myself for service as the next Houston City Councilmember for District D. Join our movement!"

Scarface's announcement came one day before reports surfaced suggesting his Geto Boys bandmate Bushwick Bill had died following his battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. However, Bushwick Bill's family and representative have since dismissed the reports, insisting he is still alive.
