Editors’ Notes

A legendary lyricist who commands respect from coast to coast, Scarface was a founding member of Houston hip-hop pioneers The Geto Boys and is among the most influential wordsmiths in the game's history.

Originally released in 1994, The Diary is one of Scarface's best solo albums. It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, easily went platinum, and includes the hit singles "I Seen a Man Die" and "Hand of a Dead Body," featuring Ice Cube and a very young Devin the Dude.
