Scarface Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Jay-Z f/ Beanie Sigel & Scarface "This Can't Be Life" (2000)

Producer: Kanye West
Album: The Dynasty: Roc La Famila
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam

Scarface: “I was in New York and I was working at Def Jam. Jigga had called me over to the studio to finish a record with him and Beanie. I was on my way to the studio in the car service and I'm riding as I get the call. It just broke me down. That was the worst news I had ever heard. That’s a real life, a heart beating moment. Spontaneous pen. Writing what you see, writing what you hear, writing what you thought.

“If people tapped into their emotion and their heart when they write and wrote their soul and left it on the page I think that there would be a lot more dope artists. The rap game wouldn’t be in the state that it's in. Like I tell my football players, leave it on the field.”
