Scarface Forced To Stop tour
« on: August 27, 2002, 12:29:13 AM »
Scarface plans to take a temporary hiatus from rap and recently canceled touring to support his latest LP, The Fix, after being hospitalized and diagnosed with high blood pressure. "I was 194 over 127, which is near stroke," Face told AllHipHop.com. "I was that close to cashin' in and it aint worth my health. I'm gonna sit behind my desk and do my job," Face said referring to his title as President of Def Jam South.

According to the American Heart Organization, high blood pressure, or hypertension is defined in an adult as a systolic pressure of 140 mm Hg or higher and/or a diastolic pressure of 90 mm Hg or higher.

High blood pressure directly increases the risk of heart disease and heart attacks, as well as strokes, and is particularly prevalent in African Americans, middle-aged and elderly people, obese people and heavy drinkers.

Face said that the high blood pressure was also affecting his kidneys. "This high blood pressure sh*t is cold blooded man," he said. "There aint no symptoms to it and you don't know that you have it. N*ggas need to be aware of this and get checked out, cause it hits us the hardest."

Scarface is enjoying success, as The Fix debuted at #1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Album chart. It has been at the top position for 3 weeks and is also in the top 10 on the Top 200 charts.

"Retiring aint in my blood," Face continued. "I just gotta refocus some things and get my health back."

Woah, thats some bad news. Good to hear he's taking the sensible route and concentrating on a more relaxing and safer aspect of his job though and not totally quiting. Could it be his weight that is causing his blood pressure to rise too? My nan has problems with her blood presssure too, so I know how serious it can get if it gets out of hand.




I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.
