Scarface Says DJ Premier Still Owes Him A Beat

During an interview Scarface also recalled linking up with Guru and DJ Premier on the song “Betrayal” from Gang Starr’s 1998 album Moment of Truth. According to the Houston emcee, he contributed his verse in exchange for a Premo beat, but the H-Town producer has yet to lace him with production.

They sent me a verse, and a beat for me to write my part on,” he said. “I did it on strength but by the end of the day, Premier still owed me a beat. He still owes me a beat 20 years later. And every time I talked to him he’ll be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, but I didn’t forget about you.’ Bullshit, you forgot about me. That’s my boy though, that’s my partner. H-Town native.

In addition to his collaborative effort with Beanie Sigel, Scarface is also working on his 12th solo album Rooted. Who knows!
