RECORD RACK

In Brief

October 23, 1994|Heidi Siegmund

Scarface, "The Diary,"(***) Rap-A-Lot/Noo Trybe/Virgin. "The Diary" is just that, an aural journey through the mind of an ex-Houston street con--a hard mind flooded with thoughts of funerals, tears, drugs and confusion. The 23-year-old Geto Boys member, whose lyrical tautness on songs such as "I Seen a Man Die" is frighteningly powerful, stays unapologetically true to the real origins of gangsta rap, never once straying from his hellbent mission to toss off a pop song.

New albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
