No doubt the man name Scarface has a way with words. His mic presence
is undeniable as he raps with thick growl and menacing lyrics. The beats to this album were just right; not overly flashy but not mundane and sleep inducing. Scarface always talks that realness...so there is no question to his authenticity...he paints vivid pictures of ghetto street life with ease and makes one of the dirty south's best offerings to date. He makes you feel his pain.
Scarface definitely gets down on NO Tears where he claims of having a stoned heart. There is nothing soft on this album and aren't any gimmicks. Just that realness...the raw street lyrics...the raw beats. This is gangsta rap at its finest. Just Check Jesse James for more proof. Every song is banging on the real and there are no weak songs.
I Never Seen A Man Cry is a dirty south classic. Undeniable. Goin Down has that riding beat to it...straight gangsta. Hand Of The Dead Body, Mind Playin Tricks On Me...the classics never stop.
This album is in the category with Illmatic, Doggystyle, Me Against The World and Ready To Die. You can listen to it repeatedly and not get tired with it. Scarface...one of the greatest ever...must buy.

Scarface is something to behold in the world of hip hop. 1/3 of the infamous group Geto Boys, before releasing this CLASSIC album, he blessed us with his first album in 89, Mr. Scarface Is Back, an album that was laced with the three Gs: it was Gritty, Grimey, and Gangsta. Then, a lot of heads ignored the follow up The World Is Yours, and with good reason. But in 1994, a tremendous year for hip hop, Scarface let loose an album that is spine tingling AND creepy at the same time. This is the true Scarface is his purest form, and with The Diary, he truly showcased what he was all about. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: I dare ANYONE to say that this album has any filler whatsoever. It has NONE.
Production: Thumbs up. THIS is what production from the south SHOULD sound like.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up. Listen to "I Never Seen A Man Cry" and you'll see what I mean.
Originality: Thumbs up. No one was truly coming like Scarface around 94.
The Last Word: Just to sum it all up, this album is remarkably breathtaking, from start to finish. If there was any doubt about this man's creative juices, he displayed that and then some with this album. One of the greatest albums of time, The Diary represents Scarface in his prime, and you can't ask for anymore than that. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

"The Diary" (1994) is one of Scarface's best albums. A short release at 13 tracks (including intro,interlude and outro), I first got this album almost ten years ago as a gift. Sometimes a short release pays off as this one does, the first thing that grabs me on this is the intro which was original to me at the time, and the way it ended in gunfire. Scarface comes through strong on the next track "The White Sheet", I like the chorus to this track. "No Tears" is about looking for revenge on a friends killer. Face tells a story of murder on "Jesse James". The only guest appearance comes from Ice Cube on "Hand of the Dead Body" a dope hardcore collabration track. I have two favourite tracks on this one, both exceptional classic Scarface tracks "I Seen A Man Die" and "Mind Playin'Tricks". Both are excellent for there own reasons, both have Face exhibiting his premium dark storytelling skills. Scarface to me is definetly the best Southern solo rapper, and "The Diary" is an album for everyone who enjoys his music. People who are new to his music may want to start off with his best work of recent years "The Fix".

They say you should never read another person's diary because you just might find something you won't like. A fact that is clearly true, Scarface will have most people hating on him after they hear this demon-like album.

After going to Hell and back on Mr. Scarface is Back, Scarface returns the "real n1gga" and attempts to finish what he started with his debut album. His street poetry and fantasies depict the life of a real O.G. and brings out the best of him on this CD. Its hard to choose which song would shine the most on here as there are countless classics that have the word, classic, written all over it. If you don't have this album and you consider yourself a Gangsta Rap fan, I highly suggest you go buy it.

"The Diary", Scarface's 3rd solo album, is without a single doubt legendary the Houston rapper's best album ever. It came out in 1994, following the epic overreaching of "The World Is Yours" and it showed Scarface at his very best. The album is just perfect from beginning to the end. It feels like a movie, and a thrilling one at that. Scarface paints perfect pictures that you'll be able to visualise while you're listening to the songs. Even the interules feature great music and they fit the album concept perfectly! The one and only guest on the album is fellow veteran gangsta Ice Cube on one of the most powerful and truest rap songs ever "Hands on the dead body", which is actually about the rap game. The album features Scarface at his very best - you get the straight raw hardcore gangsta songs, you get a couple of songs for the playas, songs with a personal feel to them and of course songs with a social message to them. Scarface here once again offers a laid-back gangsta ballad, "I Seen a Man Die," that's as thoughtful and somber as the style gets and also perhaps the album highlight. It just doesn't get any better than this - Scarface just delivers his best performance ever, and this is the album which made him officialy a legend in the rap game. Production is by the usual Rap-A-Lot production team at that time - Mike Dean, N.O. Joe, Scarface - and it's just brilliant. The album is short (10 songs + 3 interludes) and just leaves you with hunger for more! It may make the album a short listen, yet it also makes The Diary Scarface's most solid effort, one where you never feel inclined to skip a song. And that's something you can't say about the work of most rappers, particularly ones as creative as Scarface.
