The Geto Boy and Houston rap originator Scarface is one of the greatest rappers of all time — any era, any region, any subgenre, no qualifiers. Face announced a low-key retirement after his last album, 2008’s great Emeritus, and other than a few guest appearances here and there, he’s mostly stuck to it. But Face is evidently finished being finished, and he’s announced that he’ll have a new LP called Deeply Rooted coming out sometime soon. This is great news for us, since Scarface is the rare rapper who has managed to reach middle age while losing barely any of his vitality. He’s now shared a video for “No Problem,” the first song we’ve heard from the album, and it’s really just a gritty, nasty, no-chorus harangue. Director Mr. Boomtown films him with zero frills, stalking through a Houston neighborhood while images of online news headlines flash on the screen. Watch it below.

No release details on Deeply Rooted yet, but it’s supposedly coming sometime this summer, with an autobiography following in the fall.
