Here's the daddy of them all at his absolute best, the dirtiest cuts from the Don of the Dirty South. Though Scarface's influence hasn't been matched by commercial sales, he's been enormously influential by simply refusing to budge from what he does best throughout his decade-plus career--sticking (literally) to his guns with gritty, violent, profane vignettes of life as he (and many others) know it and live it. Keeping It Real has been the name of the game for Scarface from Day One, and just the titles of these cuts are testament to his success. "Money & the Power" is thug life 101, an irresistible rap set to an inexorable rhythm, while it's up to the seductive "Mary Jane" (yes, you've guessed it--a drug reference!) to show perhaps the only sensitive side Scarface has.
Despite the mad subject matter, the rapper knows how to put a track together like few of his contemporaries--the beats are to the fore, slow, heavy and danceable, and the instrumentation is spare but never rudimentary. GREATEST HITS is a fine introduction to the work of this seminal figure in Southern rap.
Artist Overview
A member of famed Houston gangsta rap group the Geto Boys, Scarface is one of the most respected southern MCs of all time. As a solo artist, he is by far the most successful member of the Geto Boys and is often credited with bringing southern hip-hop, and the Houston scene in particular, out of the underground and into the mainstream. In the early 2000s, Scarface claimed that he was retiring from the solo MC game, but stated that he would continue to work with the Geto Boys and record and produce for other artists.
