Legendary rapper and music tycoon Scarface recounts his rise to fame from his roots selling drugs in the South Side of Houston Texas to his groundbreaking music, which has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
About Diary of a Madman:
Diary of a Madman is the passionately told story of how Scarface’s world changed when he heard Run DMC for the first time; how he dropped out of school in the ninth grade and started selling crack; and how he began rapping as the new form of music made its way out of New York and across the country. It is the account of his rise to the heights of the rap world, as well as his battles with his own demons, and depression. For fans of Jay Z’s Decoded and DMX’s E.A.R.L., comes this eloquent, heart-felt, and insightful memoir from the legendary godfather of Southern rap about the roots and influences of Southern hip-hop, and how he rose to the top of the burgeoning rap scene. Featuring 20-40 photos, Diary of a Madman is the story of hip-hop—the music, the business, the streets, and life on the south side of Houston, Texas.

He is a producer and record executive, former president of Def Jam South (where he signed the now-multi platinum Ludacris), and for years, the face of Rap-A-Lot Records, which was one of the most successful independent rap labels of all time.
