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.
A memoir by the Geto Boys front man credited with the establishment of Southern rap describes the influences that inspired his career and music hits, his disadvantaged youth, and his strugles with depression.
