His albums were often plagued with filler, his lyrics were simply too harsh for radio, and his uncompromising devotion to producer Mike Dean led to a stagnant, albeit trademark, sound. Still, likely because Scarface never crossed over and remained aligned to the streets, his influence never waned, making him one of the few veterans able to sustain in the here-today, gone-tomorrow rap game. In the early s, Def Jam Records rewarded his staying power with a lucrative contract, a wealth of industry connections, and a powerful marketing push.

Scarface consequently enjoyed the most successful album of his career, The Fixand a revival of interest in his back catalog, which his former label, Rap-a-Lot, repackaged that same year on Greatest Hits. Before Brad Jordan became known as Scarface, he called himself Akshen. As such, he began his rap career first as a solo artist in his native Houston during the mid-'80s for James Smith's then fledging Rap-a-Lot label.

Smith was trying to launch a group he tagged the Geto Boys, and he eventually asked Akshen to join the group in the late '80s. The Geto Boys' debut album -- Grip It!

On That Other Levellater repackaged and re-released that same year simply as The Geto Boys -- shocked many with its vivid depictions of violence and its overall extreme nature.

This album featured the song "Scarface," which introduced Akshen's alter ego, a title he would keep from that point onward. The ensuing controversy surrounding the group's debut put the Geto Boys on the map and set the stage for the impressive We Can't Be Stopped In the wake of the group's national success came solo albums, one of which being Scarface's debut, Mr.

Scarface Is Back The album made it evident who the group's most talented member was, and the acclaim showered on Scarface resulted in bitter tensions among his fellow Geto Boys, Bushwick Bill and Willie D.

By the time Scarface returned with his follow-up album, The World Is Yourshis reputation overshadowed that of his group's. Willie D consequently departed, and the the Geto Boys never again rivaled We Can't Be Stopped, releasing half-hearted, albeit Album), efforts with a new lineup before later reuniting in the late '90s. In the meantime, Scarface continued to funnel his efforts into additional solo efforts: The Diary and Untouchable He then released the double-disc My Homiesa bloated effort laden with guests, many of the South's leading rappers.

It wasn't untilthough, that Scarface won substantial admiration from the greater rap community with Last of a Dying Breed, his most personal and focused album in years. The powerhouse East Coast label wanted Scarface to helm its Def Jam South subsidiary division, and the rapper obliged, first signing Ludacris, who became an overnight superstar, and then releasing his own album, The Fix Rap-a-Lot furthered Scarface's newfound coast-to-coast acceptance with the rapper's first best-of collection, Greatest Hits A year later he introduced his new crew, the Product, with the album One Hunid and released a second volume of My Homies.

Also landing in was 2 Face, a collection of tracks featuring Scarface and the late 2Pac. Godfather of the south introduces the future of Texas with Green City His Label — Underground railroad has put out 1 album on Koch in — name of group: The Product — did same deal with SMC for Green City He formed the label to discover new talent and develop it just like he did with Ludacris and with Devin the Dude.

Green City — 7 members. Heard music when he was at a gym and found out these guys were not on a label and spoke to them that day and signed them on the spot. Album features Manny Fresh, Scarface 2 semi-pro boxers from Killeen that went to high school with the guys and they were playing the music at the gym in Houston. Group was his dream, he brought the guys together in high school to form the group. Green City — what does it mean — it represents the name Killeen, it rhymes with the city and it also represents money.

All the members attended Killeen high school and became good friends, Spark made grills for people in school, that is how he met the others. Green City is also a click, and a movement — there are other people that are in the click, but not as rappers. Killean is a Milatary town and it is connected to Ft. Hood the biggest millarty base in the world.

Have a sound that is mixed with Texas influence with a whole national feel. Nothing like the Houston sound. What is it like working with Face? Face is not Hollywood at all, he is well respected, and is very down to earth. It is surreal that they are working with him — he is a hero, a legend in their eyes, Face makes it real easy by being real and acting like a regular dude.

No other Texas person can give you such a big co-sign is Face. Killer Mike. It boasts 10 quality tracks submerged in Hip-Hop with different sounds from around the world. The song encapsulates Black Britanyaa as the second and third generation of migrants, forging a new identity that can contain their Britishness and Blackness.

The final track Libation is the ancient African ritual of pouring out of spirits to honour the ancestors and this ancient tradition is recreated in music.

With the unique vocals of UK living legend Omar, this song makes for a strong follow- up single. All of which gives the album an organic and rounded touch. At a time when Hip-Hop has almost been strangled by the bling, this album is a refreshing tonic as it pushes the boundaries of Hip-Hop both musically and lyrically. Buy it at: www.

Pastor Troy. Upon first listen, it becomes clear that Troy is no longer preaching to the choir. Instead, he takes aim at the unconverted -- the nonbelievers -- and gives them a deliciously devilish dose of their own medicine. Boasting the talents of much-touted producers Cooley C, Drumm, P. NO and Shawty Redd. Stay True finds Troy mixing it up with a new crop of music makers.

The sound is still recognizable, however, and stays true to the renown, get-crunk-represent-the-dirty-south style that he introduced with his debut We Ready- I Declare War and 's Face Off.

But like most kids on his block, the young Troy was also exposed to street life. It is that dichotomy, that contradiction of influences, that continues to be reflected in his music today: the respectful preacher's kid who knows better but can't resist indulging his naughty side; the gentlemanly boy next door who seems oblivious to the wiles of his street corner friends but, in actuality, is far craftier than they could ever be. On Stay True, Troy flirts with religion in one breath, embraces street life in the next and somehow manages to treat them with equal reverence.

Recording the album proved to be a cathartic experience for the rapper. As a result, emcees with devout Hip Hop followings like B Legit, suffered in the way of allotted money, time and attention from the major label. One hundred and thirty five thousand units later, the satisfied independent moved to push Hard 2 B Legit a September release. Arguably one of his best albums to date, Hard… sold a modest 75, units.

A relative success for the indie, B was forced to momentarily sever ties with Koch due to bootleg CD purchases i. He delivered meaningful messages to youth in the Oakland California School District, spoke at various high schools and never missed an opportunity to stress the importance of education.

Additionally, he coached youth basketball, dropped science as a panelist for a Hip Hop forum in San Francisco, and sponsored youth baseball and health educator athletic teams. Now I got a chance to really put on my CEO hat. Complete with producers from various regions of the country, Block Movement hits on all cylinders, beginning with the sonic movement down south. Anybody that has a background from the South or the church, you can just feel those Album) hymns and certain notes: the soul.

You get you a nice pair of shoes and a nice clean truck, drive off and listen to some feel good music. Louis and Gold Fingers Dallasdo their part on the production side as well, delivering respective bangers in their own right.

Beeda Weeda. You may have heard him rhyme on a number of Bay Area compilations and collaborations. This was unexpected Cream Of The Crop - JT The Bigga Figga - Puttin It On The Map (CD for both labels considering they march to beat of a different drum, for lack of better words yet both have had great independent Cream Of The Crop - JT The Bigga Figga - Puttin It On The Map (CD.

Young Beeda Weeda hails from the notorious Murder Dubbs neighborhood in East Oakland, which sets the backdrop for his raw and uncut lyrics. Even without such impressive stats, it is easy to see that Beeda is talented and exudes a captivating swagger. He is also versatile, prolific and produces classics. Beeda plans to further build his legacy in and beyond. Since dropping TurfologyBeeda has featured on numerous albums and made several TV appearances.

The latter is in heavy rotation online and generating major views. All of this is done in preparation for the release of his opus, Turf Radio Clearbeat,which promises to be another classic. Yes, the boy is busy!

Obviously a trendsetter and not a follower; Beeda Weeda is definitely on his way to superstardom. Scarface quickly became the South's most admired rapper and remained so throughout the '90s after breaking away from the Geto Boys to launch his solo career in Even if he never scored any national hits or stormed up the Billboard charts with any of his numerous albums throughout the '90s, no one could question his clout throughout the South.

He essentially defined what it meant to be a Southern thug rapper years before anyone even coined the term Dirty South. This became glaringly evident in the late '90s when a massive wave of young MCs arose from Houston, New Orleans, and Memphis emulating his style of hard-boiled, ghetto-bred, straight-up hardcore rapping.

Besides serving as the father of Southern thug rap, it seemed as if every hardcore rapper wanted to align himself with Scarface during Album) '90s -- everyone from Ice Cube and Dr. Dre to 2Pac and Master P collaborated with the former Geto Boy -- all in an attempt to foster credibility among the loyal Southern rap audience.

Yet despite his unquestionable influence, Scarface never crossed over to mainstream acceptance. His albums were often plagued with filler, his lyrics were simply too harsh for radio, and his uncompromising devotion to producer Mike Dean led to a stagnant, albeit trademark, sound.

Still, likely because Scarface never crossed over and remained aligned to the streets, his influence never waned, making him one of the few veterans able to sustain in the here-today, gone-tomorrow rap game.
