MissTheda: Your did a tribute to Oakland rap veteran Too $hort at this year’s Hip-Hop Honors show. How do you think you’ll feel when the day of your induction comes?
Scarface: That’s a good question. I really haven’t put much thought into it, but when that time comes it will mean a lot to me.

MissTheda: Is it important for you to be respected and acknowledged?
Scarface: Shit yeah, I ain’t gotta be acknowledged or even spoken to, but respect me. If a person can’t look at you in your eye, then you know they don’t respect you. During the first debate between Obama and McCain, McCain didn’t look at Barack not one time to address him, that’s how you know he doesn’t respect him.

MissTheda: You’re called a legend, it terms of magnitude, how does that make you feel as a person?
Scarface: Define as a person.

MissTheda: You’re a person and many call you a legend, does it make you feel anyway, like overly confident or thankful.
Scarface: I’m thankful. I remember when I was little and we was so broke that all I would get was socks for Christmas. It’s memories like that, that keep things in perspective and a nigga focused on what’s important.

MissTheda: If Scarface is the street wordsmith, who is the real Brad Jordan?
Scarface: A father.

MissTheda: Few people know that you’re a family man. How do you balance being a father and urban legend on a daily basis?
Scarface: I just do it. Rapping will always be in me, but being dad is the real deal.

MissTheda: Who would you count as some of the biggest influences in your career from start to present?
Scarface: KRS1, Kool Moe D, N.W.A.

MissTheda: Your new album Emeritus has sparked a lot of talk about your unimaginable retirement from music. What is the album about and who did you work with for its creation.
Scarface: It’s my last album and it brings the understanding that I’ve done enough. I worked with Bun, Wayne, Z-Ro, Slim Thug and, she’s from Virginia. I can’t call her name. [Shateish, his manager says] Yeah Shateish, I had her name right there.

MissTheda: If this is your final album, what is the everlasting impression that you want to leave on your fans?
Scarface: I put it all on the floor and in time they will realize that Emeritus is not my end but another transition as an artist.

MissTheda: Away from music, what new chapter lies ahead for you.
Scarface: Golf! I want to bring golf to the inner city. I don’t think anyone is doing that.

MissTheda: When does the album come out?
Scarface: December 2nd.

MissTheda: Any parting words for your beloved fans.
Scarface: Just don’t forget to get Emeritus December 2nd and go out and vote.
