Summary
From Geto Boys legend and renowned storyteller Scarface comes a passionate memoir about how hip-hop changed the life of a kid from the south side of Houston, and how he rose to the top—and ushered in a new generation of rap dominance.Scarface is the celebrated rapper whose hits include "On My Block," "Mind Playing Tricks on Me," and "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta" (made famous in the cult film Office Space). The former president of Def Jam South, he's collaborated with everyone from Kanye West to Ice Cube to Nas, and had many solo hits such as "Guess Who's Back," featuring Jay Z, and "Smile," featuring Tupac. But before that, he was a kid from Houston in love with rock and roll, listening to AC/DC and KISS.In Diary of a Madman Scarface shares how his world changed when he heard Run-D.M.C. for the first time, how he dropped out of school in the ninth grade and started selling crack, and how he began rapping as the new form of music made its way out of New York and across the country. It is the account of his rise to the heights of the rap world, as well as his battles with his own demons and depression
