Why Have A Farewell Tour Now?
Scarface has had a couple of health scares over the last few years, especially after testing positive for covid-19 in 2020. The Houston native revealed the positive test during a live stream with another Geto Boy, Willie D.
“It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs, and three or four days later, my kidneys failed,” Scarface shared. “I’ve been to the point where I felt I was gonna die.”
Eventually, Face was covid-19 free, but the effects of the virus left a lasting impact. The rapper was put on dialysis due to his kidney failure. The problem got so bad that Scarface needed a kidney transplant, and the kidney came from his son. The transplant has given Scarface enough energy to create a Farewell Tour.

Scarface could be slowing down because of these health scares. The Farewell Tour will be the last time rap fans will get to see Scarface perform his solo hits.
A Glimpse At Scarface’s Rap History
Scarface started as a solo artist in the rap game, but he gave that up to join the Geto Boys. The rap group formed with Bushwick Bill, Willie D, and Scarface at the end of the ’80s. The Geto Boys dropped hits like “Mind Playing Tricks On Me,” “Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta,” “Yes Yes Y’all,” and “City Under Siege.” The Geto Boys had controversial lyrics that they never altered even after facing pushback. Now, the Geto Boys have a significant influence over gangster rap.
