Scarface - Mr. Scarface Is Back
Part of the great early southern crew Geto Boys (who I'll probably post something from in the near future), Scarface had his solo debut in '91 with this gem. Pretty funky stuff, with a bit of the west coast flavour in both the beats and gangsta styling. Some of the samples are just fucking great too.
Strange that he's not really that well known, seeing as this is a really good debut, and he was a part of a solid crew; though I guess they were overlooked too. Also, he did the whole dying on the last track thing a few years before biggie did it.
