Scarface Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Scarface & Beanie Sigel "Mack and Brad" (2000)

Producer: J-5
Album: The Truth
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam

Scarface: “Someone from the Roc-A-Fella office called me and they asked me to do that record. It may have been Dame, I can’t remember. But I know I heard it and I said okay, and we just went back and forth. Beanie sent all his parts. I recorded it during the time I was recording Last of a Dying Breed. I laid my part’s where he left blanks. But he had already laid his stuff out and we were on two different coasts at two different times but it just flowed.

“Still to date, Beanie is one of my closest friends. Outside of Too $hort, Q-Tip, or Busta, those are really my friend. They’re my people. I’m really close to those guys. I don’t have to talk to Q-Tip for five years and I don’t have to talk to Jay-Z for 10 years. But our friendship is so solid that when we do talk, we pick up right where we left off. Everybody knows when you have an authentic friendship with somebody. I ain’t got to see Kanye to talk to ‘Ye, but I know that we’re going to pick up right where we left off because we’re friends.”
