Scarface Signs New Group Green City

(Akiit.com) Houston, TX legend Scarface’s record label Underground Railroad is preparing to release the debut album from the rapper’s latest discovery, Killeen-based seven-man collective known as Green City.

The group’s album Brand New Money is the second album from Scarface’s Underground Railroad imprint, coming on the heels of the label’s first album by The Product.

Scarface, born Brad Jordan, discovered Green City while he was working out in his local gym. Green City consists of 7 members – Spark Dawg, Mike Hee, Yung Texxus (Killeen/Dover, DE), MJ, J. Scott, Big Spade and G-Ni.

Two pro-boxers in the gym that day attended high school with members of Green City and happened to be working out to the group’s music.

When Scarface asked the boxers who they were listening to, he was shocked to find out that the group didn’t have a deal and attempted to sign Green City on the spot.

“I am the best in the business when it comes to finding raw talent,” Scarface said. “I brought Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, Lil’ Flip and TI to Def Jam, but they didn’t bite. I end up going to Killeen TX and found Green City. They are on some different shit, something you’ve never heard before. I stepped out of the box for Green City cause they bring a new flavor, they just do what they do.”

According to Scarface, Green City’s first single “Like A Porn Star (Party like a Rock Star)” featuring Mannie Fresh sums up the group philosophy.

“They party 24-7, for them it’s just a big ass party, but they get things done,” Scarface said. “They have the best presentation I have ever seen for a group trying to get signed, people have been sleeping on Green City. They are young and I don’t want anyone I need to baby-sit, but they don’t need a babysitter.”

The name Green City is slang that represents money, as well as the group’s extended family, which features over 50 group members.

“It’s surreal that we’re working with him – he is our hero, and a legend in all of our eyes,” group member Spark Dawg said. “No other person in Texas or even the South can give you such a big co-sign other than Face. We can’t lose with him backing us up/having our back, we are blessed to be working with him.”
