When it comes to the best gangster rap ever produced,Scarface automatically comes to mind.
The thing I personally love about ole Face is the fact he’s real with his raps. Only takes one listen to hear in his voice the agony of trying to do right by God and still make his money.
Scarface’s Music Was and is Enjoyed Because of His Mental State
The man was torn in his music and had to tell his story despite any type of “crazy” labels that the industry might place on him over the years.
But if you ask me, the critics are crazy if they ever try to deny that Scarface put it all out there for us to experience.
Between his battle with anxieties, the love for the streets and his devotion to place God across his messaging, Scarface has proven to us that he was not scared to produce his music this way.
If you’re not familiar with gangster rap, Face took us down the dirty streets of Houston Texas and let us peer into old country ghettos dressed with torn wallpapered walls, no-furniture dilapidated dens and hints of crack dust on tables where them street boys cut up their dope.
Scarface Gets Props Because He Was Really From The Ghetto
Scarface is the original gangster of the southern rap. He started it. In addition, this guy knows how to play various instruments. This places him in an elite group of rap artists. The artists who understand the music industry not only in terms of rap, but making the music behind the raps. Not many rap artists are inclined to have both skills.
My last note is a lot of people do not realize that Scarface appreciates Pink Floyd. The cool thing about this guy is, if you listen to enough Scarface long enough you will recognize the influence that Pink Floyd had on his music.
