The track is a re-creation of Public Enemy‘s classic song “Black Steel In The Hour of Chaos” and will appear on Face‘s upcoming 10-song EP, Deeply Rooted: The Lost Files, out on December 15 via Facemob/BMG. The collection is an extension of Face’s 2015 solo LP, Deeply Rooted and contains 6 new songs and 4 alternate versions.

Last week, Scarface launched his current tour at The Loft in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour features Scarface with a full live band and will go through December making stops in several major U.S. cities including Detroit, Cleveland, Dallas, Chicago and Oakland, among others.
Scarface has racked up millions of album sales over his multi-decade career, along with five Billboard Hot 100 Singles. From his earliest verses in the late 1980‘s as a solo artist and a member of the Geto Boys, to today, Face has always made sure to tell the stories he feels the world needs to hear. Whether it is speaking out against injustice, reflecting on his struggles with depression and his overall mental health, or just narrating the stories of the streets, Scarface is known for speaking the truth and tackling difficult subjects. Deeply Rooted: The Lost Files, will be the last release before Scarface’s 30th Anniversary solo album, due out next year.
Regarded as one of the pioneers of hip-hop, Scarface came onto the scene as one-third of the Geto Boys and brought the attention of the hip-hop community to his hometown of Houston, as well as to the South as a whole. Scarface went on to become the head of Def Jam South and launched the careers of several southern rappers, including Ludacris.
