The Houston-raised rapper praises his city’s mayor but criticizes the President of the United States.

(AllHipHop News) It’s impossible to talk about Houston Hip Hop and not mention Brad “Scarface” Jordan. The Geto Boys member is one of the pioneers of Texas rap who also helped usher in the South’s stranglehold on the culture.

With the tragic events caused by Hurricane Harvey taking place in his hometown, Face would surely have a lot to say about the situation. Rolling Stone spoke with The Fix album creator.

“Some people are still flooded in, some people lost everything. I feel like this is the worst storm among my friends because we had some friends who took on some real damage,” said Scarface. “My buddy was evacuating his house in the inner city and he stepped in a manhole! If he wouldn't have caught himself from falling all the way down, he would've died. He lost everything.”

Thankfully, Scarface stated he and his family are safe. He praised Houston's Mayor Sylvester Turner for showing “immaculate leadership skills in a crisis.” However, the "My Block" performer had harsher criticism for Donald Trump.

“I think he still feels like he's on a presidential campaign. He walked to the shelter like, ‘Oh, look at this crowd! Thank you!’ The people weren't there to see him. The people were actually in a shelter,” Face offered about the POTUS. “With all due respect, Mr. President is an egotistical megalomaniac narcissist.”

Scarface is planning to assist the other citizens of Houston, but don’t plan on seeing him posting about it on social media. He added, “The relief that I pass on to people is out of love. It's no photo op.”
