Scarface, who was recently honored at the BET Awards, was arrested for failing to pay child support.


Scarface, 44, whose real name is Brad Jordan, was arrested on Oct. 9 after receiving the I Am Hip Hop Award at the BET Hip-Hop Awards held in Atlanta.

Scarface was taken into custody and brought to the Fulton County Jail. His bond has been set at no less than $482,190.

There is some speculation as to whether Scarface was unaware that he was breaking the law by not making his child support payments before leaving his home-state of Texas to accept the BET award.

The award-winning rapper is known for songs like “Smile,” “My Block” and “I Seen a Man Die.” He has over 12 solo albums, the first one being released in 1991. In the 1980s, Scarface performed with Geto Boys.

Other past winners of the I Am Hip Hop Awards include Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Rakin, LL Cool J., Salt-N-Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and Ice Cube.

The BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on Oct. 13 at 8 pm PT.
