As the coronavirus pandemic impacts all walks of life, legendary rapper and former Texas candidate Brad Jordan, who performed as ‘Scarface,’ opens up about his coronavirus diagnosis and implores people to take the risk seriously, stressing that the risk is “not a hoax” and his doctors told him he was supposed to be “one of the 80,000” people who died from the virus. Jordan appeared with reporter John Stanton on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber,” and also discussed why the rags to riches story in the movie “Scarface” resonated with him and so many other artists, including Da Baby, Lil Baby, Notorious B.I.G., Lil Kim and more. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 5/15/2020.

  1. republicans don’t care who dies as long as we blame democrats.
    democrats want to save everyone’s life, even if we credit republicans.

    that’s the difference between the parties.

      Politicians are not to be trusted, generally. It just so happens that the current incarnation of Republicans are really just fascists. Democrats are the lesser of two evils but they aren’t to be treated as saviors

      @Norm alice oh yeah the fox news response.i don’t watch them either but at least they kinda had it right not like this t.v entrainment and u are a victim of mind control and it’s funny to me that I all say exactly what u where trained to say and it’s all the same answer

    • @toddburress68 “i don’t watch them either but this is what they said” omfg, you’re bad at scamming..

      When Republicans and rural red state citizens start dying en masse, they’ll care then, and only then.

    • @Slutty McTits bet they won’t. They’ve been trained to be sociopaths since birth. Indeed, they might even get off on the idea that all the old people they don’t like in their neighborhood are dropping off..

    There was no false news until we got a fake president

  3. Dang, if only Fred Trump had bought a Trojan back then, we wouldn’t have this embarrassing problem today!!! ☹️ Stay Safe Scarface.

  4. The joke is on the unfortunate Americans who are drinking Trumpublican koolaid, not wearing face masks, not taking precautions. The projected numbers keep getting revised upward because of the actions or lack of action by Trump. What number will be high enough for Americans to wake up? 100,000? 200,000? 300,000? This is a Tragedy that could have been avoided if Americans had been told to wear masks and social distance starting in January. Trump has blood on his hands.

    • @Dale Blake
      Thank you. Couldn’t agree more. All facts.

      Zoo man no that is not my source btw there are many many more doctors but if you could read I no for a fact the numbers are a lie and I know for a fact that hospitals get 30k for day a person had c19. Not to say I’m 50 and never have I seen my state shut down much less the world. Dude common sense will let you see what is going on. Oh most people don’t have that thing called common sense. Really I just want to help people from letting this B’s distort there work family and stress. Not to mention that vactionations are very bad and causes problems. If you want to believe the B’s it’s your right you will see truth in the future. Good luck my fellow friend.

    • @HIGHER ENERGY soooooo…no research or evidence then? Just your common sense now? FLIP FLOPPING like a beached fish.

    • Thing is under trump we will end the CCP invasion and stop globalism dead in its tracks. See more here https://youtu.be/jMeC1bsOVTA

      you have yet to provide any proof for your claim. You know for facts …?
      Well, your facts are just that. Yours, not everyone else’s.
      “Vaccinations are very bad” …..oh goodness. What next ? That earth is flat?

    People need to take this more serious!!!

    • notfalling forbullshit | May 16, 2020 at 12:58 AM | Reply

      @Bimbola Goddey Its not spreading fear it’s spreading caution. The fear will come if you are one of the unfortunate ones that catches it. Simple

    • @Bimbola Goddey No, when you are serious you take precautions. precautions doesn’t always mean fear

    • Pam McCumbers | May 16, 2020 at 8:35 AM | Reply

      Shirley Fretty Trump refuses to take it seriously, therefore his supporters don’t, just because you take precautions doesn’t mean you live in fear.

    • Christine Venner | May 16, 2020 at 8:43 AM | Reply

      @Bimbola Goddey Fear is a necessary response.
      It’s part of our survival kit.
      Just because there is fear, doesnt mean you buckle beneath it, just means you take notice, and take necessary precautions to safeguard yourself from the object of that fear.
      To live with no fear means you are never prepared to deal with those things that will hurt you or your family.
      Case in point, Covid19.
      Being brave doesnt mean you have no fear, it means you have the bravery to carry on in the face of fear.
      Its called courage.
      I really dont understand why you wouldnt understand that.

      NIH began to develop a vaccine on Jan 11th. Trump even said this in his speech on May 15th. This is proof the government knew this is not a hoax way back then.

  10. Hang tough brother – praying for you blood.

    No joke. That dialysis will be 4 times per week for the rest of his life, and it takes hours each time. Take this virus seriously and protect yourself and your family.
