Legendary Houston rapper Scarface has surprised fans with the announcement that he will be releasing a new album within the month. The former Geto Boys MC said that his 12th album, 'Dopeman Music' will be in stores May 4, via his Facemob Music label.

Though Scarface previously claimed that his 2008 album, 'Emeritus' would be his last, the rapper told MTV that he was ready "to move on to another stage" with his music.

"I got a lot of s--- and I'm using about three percent of what I know about music." Scarface said. "I'm not using it all. I'm music. I can play that s--- long enough for a real musician to catch it and feel me, where I'm going, and we make magic like that."

'Dopeman Music' will be in stores on May 4. Check out a sampler here.
