Tef Poe Pens Open Letter to Hip Hop Hero
by DeWarren Smith
Top of the S.L.U.M. FEST pyramid one day, and today, at the top of the internet and major blog sites such as ‘2Dopeboyz,’ and ‘The Smoking Section,’ is where you will find Tef Poe. After releasing “Dear Mr. Scarface,” an open letter to hip hop legend and his one of his personal hip-hop heroes, Scarface aka Brad Jordan,
Tef pays homage with Chicago producer Dave the King. The song started a serious buzz once Scarface (@brothermob) himself heard the song and tweeted it for the masses to listen.
“Dear Mr. Scarface the people really need you a man of conviction understanding what I’ve been through. Lames staking over, sign of the times. The southern rappers used to have pride in their rhymes. Nowadays actin’ like they never seen coke, so every rapper is placing it inside of their quotes, and actin’ like that sh*t, is the illest sh*t that he wrote. I’m from the ghetto but I’m trying to get up out that b*tch…”
This level of attention is nothing new for the XXL Magazine Breakthrough artist, Source Magazine, and retired 106 & Park Freestyle Friday Champion Tef Poe.
Earlier this year, Tef Poe released ‘Cheer for the Villain,’ produced entirely by DJ Burn One (Now Available on ITunes) and is expected to travel across the pond to Europe this fall.
