Scarface just surprised me with a book that he is the author of. The book is called "Diary Of a Madman" and covers everything from his life with The Geto Boys and explores the roots of Southern rap. While Scarface is without the doubt the true King Of The South having worked with everyone from Dr. Dre to Jay-Z. He has carved a nitch in the game with no problems at all.

 

In my opinion he was the most lyrical one in the Geto Boys with no shade at Willie D, Bushwick Bill or even Big Mike. But it was something about him that made me believe what he was rapping about. He brought his fans into his world with the lyrics, manuerisms and topics.

 

He can now add Author to his resume with the book "Diary Of A Madman". The book talks about being a 70's kids who was first introduced to the hip hop culture by Run- DMC. He talks about being a label owner and actually being president of the now defunct Def Jam South which was the home of Ludacris. While the book does cover his life, it talks about southern hip hop as a whole and some of the movers and shakers in the game during the time when the South was truly on top of the game.
