Rapper Scarface, best known as a member of Geto Boys, is running for a Houston City Council seat. Scarface, 48, whose real name is Brad Jordan, announced his candidacy over the weekend on Instagram Saturday, saying, "I'm offering myself for service as the next Houston City Council member for District D."

Jordan grew up in Houston and gained fame in the late 1980s with the Geto Boys before launching a successful solo career. The announcement follows news that Bushwick Bill, fellow Geto Boys member, died Sunday of pancreatic cancer.
