Scarface - The World Is Yours (1993)Standouts: "The Wall" "You Don't Hear Me Doe" "Now I Feel Ya"
I promised myself that I wouldn't include more than one Scarface album, and if I wanted to stretch the truth a bit it could probably be done, but anybody that's familiar with 'Face's discography knows that he could easily hold five spots on this list. Early on, it became clear that Scarface would be the standout artist within the standout crew on Rap-A-Lot, and so a run of outstanding albums began with Mr. Scarface in '91.
Brad expands his ability to look at an uncomfortable image in the mirror and come to terms with himself on his sophomore album The World Is Yours, despite how much of a struggle self-evaluation can be. The album seems to build to a climax in "Now I Feel Ya," a mellow ode to the wisdom that elders once tried to bestow upon him. It's the kind of song that not only emulates, but embodies the experience of transitioning from a carefree youth to a responsible, mature adult. 'Face sounds like he had to make the adjustment way too early, but every listener is glad that he did, or else we might not have gotten so many classic albums from the man.
