Houston has proclaimed June 26 Scarface Day in honor of the veteran rapper (born Brad Jordan). Mayor Sylvester Turner and Councilman Dwight Boykins delivered the proclamation. “Brad ‘Scarface’ Jordan is a true example of the saying, ‘It’s not where you start, but where you end up’,” Boykins said in a statement.
Beyond his musical career, Jordan is a founding partner of the Positive Purpose Movement, a non-profit providing programs for under served community members. In his acceptance speech, Face said, “I want to let y’all know I’m getting ready to make a super impact in the community because that’s the most important thing to me right now, that’s my passion—to make sure everybody is treated equally, to make sure we get equal justice, to make sure that everybody is on the same level playing field and I hope that you will stand behind me in my positive purpose of making this happen.”
