Album: The Diary
Label: Rap-A-Lot Records

Scarface: “I recorded that record maybe that August. I take so fucking long to do albums, like that album was recorded in the fall of ’92 and maybe mixed in ’93 and didn’t come out till late ’94. I really take my time when I make a record. The record came about when that kid died and I wrote a record.

“A friend of mine died on July 24, 1992. He was in this house with his girl and there was a guy on the couch asleep. [He left] and when he came back his girl was shot through her hands and her face and she was dead. And my homeboy got shot in his face. We never knew who did it until about a year ago, the murderer confessed to the murders. He was serving time on another case and he just went to the penitentiary and he just confessed to those murders. They were murdered over money.”
