Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote On THE DIARY, rapper Scarface creates a powerful, almost operatic progression of characters, portraying the different roles as they derive from the rapper's own persona. So he speaks either as Scarface or as Brad Jordan (his real name), as the cold-blooded gangsta or as a shrewd, compassionate observer of the mean streets of warring colors, doomed youth and innocents caught in the crossfire.
Muze PNote THE DIARY is a graphic, powerful, unwavering look at the day to day violence that has become brutally commonplace for far too many urban citizens, as underscored by the romantic strings, martial rhythm parts and automatic gunfire of "Intro," and the funky kill-or-be-killed braggadocio of "The White Sheet," a gangsta anthem with a series of menacing, deadly hooks.
Muze PNote Scarface anticipates all the usual criticism such a hard-edged approach would engender. He responds to such acrimony with indignation of his own on "Hand Of The Dead Body" (with Ice Cube). But a more telling response comes on "Mind Playin' Tricks," where Scarface delineates his own simple aspirations for family and self, and on the poignant, chilling "I Seen A Man Die," where he underscores a litany of tragedy and death by observing that "I never seen a man cry until I seen a man die...If you ain't at peace with God you need to patch it up...Here lies a man who ain't scared to die, may he rest in peace..."

Engineer: Mike Dean

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/29/94-1/12/95, p.178)
- "...Scarface kicks unrepentantly...and still effectively....[These songs] are notes from the underground that ring terrifyingly and all too true..."

Q (7/01, p.91)
- Included in Q's "50 Heaviest Albums of All Time".

Q (3/95, p.103)
- 4 Stars - Excellent - "...full of funky bass, whining synthesizers, and dramatic strings, the lyrics choked with bitter pathos, it roars away like an epic tragedy."

Vibe (12/94-1/95, p.144)
- "...THE DIARY is the sonic equivalent of a fists-in-the-air, blood-on-the-wall, helicopter-detonating, action-adventure flick. And he's the anti-hero..."

The Source (1/95, p.88)
- 4 Stars - Slammin' - "...Scarface is business as usual lyrically...this Geto boy has tapped into something new and has laid the foundation for an even brighter future..."

NME (Magazine)
(12/3/94, p.41)
- 8 - Excellent - "...a high-minded, haunting attempt to find some sense to the debris of the projects....an album that deserves to be heard; a sustained argument against the supposed irresponsibility of gangsta..."
