Scarface

  • His Legend: With his role in the notorious hip-hop group Geto Boys (“Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangster”) and his decades as a solo artist, this rapper’s rapper put Houston hip-hop on the map and defined Southern rap before the genre of Dirty South was even coined.
  • His Names: Brad Terrance Jordan (his birth name), Scarface, Mr. Scarface, Face Mob, Akshen
  • His Sound: unflinching autobiographical lyrics painting a gritty portrait of street life over rafter-shaking bass lines, delivered in a baritone that could be classified as a lethal weapon
  • His Stats: He’s ranked No. 16 on The Source’s 2012 list of Top 50 Lyricists of All Time, and has 7 gold- and platinum-certified albums.
  • His Sycophants: Rappers who’ve clamored to collaborate with Scarface include 2Pac, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Kanye, and Jay-Z, plus ‘Face signed and launched the career of Chris “Ludacris” Bridges.
  • His Hollywood Cameo: he played a pimp named Upgrayedd in 2006’s Idiocracy
  • His Latest: Deeply Rooted, Scarface’s first album of new material since 2008, featuring guest appearances from John Legend, Rick Ross, and Cee Lo Green. Vibe says it has “the kind of skip-no-songs cohesion every album should possess” while calling it “his best body of work.”

The Portage Theater

Most theaters in the 1920s were built to showcase vaudeville acts. The Portage Theater, however, was ahead of its time by focusing on film. The silver screen remained its specialty through 2001, when it closed due to dwindling audiences and countless actors leaving Hollywood to pursue animal husbandry. After extensive renovations, it reopened in 2006, this time to showcase a variety of performances—from movies to concerts to special events—and even star in one of its own: it was prominently featured in the mob-era film, Public Enemies.
