Log in. Anybody reading Scarface's book? Diary of a Madman Apr 23, Didn't know the book was out already. Love the song.
From Geto Boys legend and renowned storyteller Scarface, comes a passionate memoir about how hip-hop changed the life of a kid from the south side of Houston, and how he rose to the top-and ushered in a new generation of rap dominance. Jay-Z and "Smile" feat. In Diary of a Madman, Scarface shares how his world changed when he heard Run DMC for the first time; how he dropped out of school in the ninth grade and started selling crack; and how he began rapping as the new form of music made its way out of New York and across the country. It is the account of his rise to the heights of the rap world, as well as his battles with his own demons and depression. Passionately exploring and explaining the roots and influences of rap culture, Diary of a Madman is the story of hip-hop-the music, the business, the streets, and life on the south side Houston, Texas.
Brad " Scarface " Jordan is a hip-hop legend. Since he debuted in the late s as a member of the Geto Boys, Face made a name for himself delivering deep and dark reality raps. In the s he emerged as a solo star with tracks like "I Seen a Man Die" and "Smile" with 2Pac, then he continued to create classic works in the new millennium with his critically acclaimed The Fix LP. At the beginning of his career the Houston, Texas, spitter aimed to shed the ridiculous stigma surrounding Southern rappers and hoped to be considered amongst hip-hop's greats, regardless of region. Early on, Face did a lot to break Southern stereotypes and has long been regarded amongst rap's elite -- he's on my personal top 10 greatest rappers of all time list. Yes, Scarface has lived a life you can write a book on -- ummmmmm, correction, he's lived a life that he's already written a book on.
