Scarface Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Scarface f/ Too $hort, Tela, & Devin the Dude "Fuck Faces" (1998)

Producer: Scarface & Mike Dean
Album: My Homies
Label: Rap-A-Lot Records

Scarface:“I did that record originally in the studio by myself and it was called ‘Knocked Hard’ cause everything that came out of the motherfucker knocked hard. I originally did the record solo but then Too $hort was in town and he came in. I made the beat right before I went to a Too $hort show and then I wrote the verse and laid it while Too $hort wrote and laid his verse that same night.

 

Me and Raheem—you might remember his album The Vigilante—we wrote the hook to that. Raheem used to be on Rap-A-Lot records. He may have been the baddest motherf**ker to come out of Houston besides K-Rhino.

 

“Me and Raheem—you might remember his album The Vigilante—we wrote the hook to that shit. Raheem used to be on Rap-A-Lot records. Raheem may have been the baddest motherfucker to come out of Houston besides K-Rhino. Raheem was a bad motherfucker, and that shit gets over looked. He was probably the best rapper, but he wasn’t actually from Houston. He was from New Jersey, but if you type in some of Raheem’s shit you will be like, ‘Wow!’ He was the shit, he was the shit! So we wrote the hook to ‘Fuck Faces’ and I started with Devin the Dude.

“It was originally me, Devin, and Too $hort. When I finished the record and turned it in, I heard it again and Tela was on my shit. When Jay had an artist that was just ready to come out that artist was going to be on your album whether you wanted him on there or not. Nothing against Tela, but it was good. I been over it, there wasn’t nothing to get over. You can’t take the motherfucker off it now, it's already in the story. But notice that Devin said ‘Let me holler at you B. Short, check this.’ He didn’t say anything to Tela.”
