Scarface Released From Jail; Issues Statement Concerning Child Support Problems

Posted By on October 19, 2015

Last Friday, (October 16) rapper Scarface was released from jail after being arrested moments into celebrating him being given the “I Am Hip Hop” award at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. The arrest was based on unpaid child support and the MC has released the following statement:

“First and foremost I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta,” Scarface says in a statement to AllHipHop. “While we have resolved the issue I would like to correct some misinformation. The amount reported that was owed is inaccurate and I had no knowledge about there being an arrest order for me as I have traveled to Atlanta many times; with the latest trip being in September to perform at the One Music Festival. Due to the nature of the case [having a minor child involved], I will make no further comment at this time.”
