MTV News Hip-Hop Editor Shaheem Reid has discovered Scarface, whose purported final album Emeritus debuted at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 this week, is quite the duffer. "Doing what we do at MTV News, there are some things you have to see for yourself," a breathless Reid writes on MTV.com today.
Hell, Rocks Off, who accompanied 'Face for part of a round at Hermann Park last year (above), could have told him that. While he was in town for September's Ozone Awards, Reid joined Scarface on the links and even took a practice swing.
"After my go at it, [Scarface's instructor] Bruce said I was a natural," Reid crows. "Even better than 'Face when he first started. LOL!!!!"
Settle down there, Beavis. No reason for that fourth exclamation point. - Chris Gray
