Scarface 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 1991. It seemed as if every hardcore rapper wanted to align himself with Scarface's style of hard-boiled, ghetto-bred, straight-up hardcore rapping during the '90s -- everyone from Ice Cube and Dr. Dre to 2Pac and Master P collaborated with the former Geto Boy, or as he's been called, the father of Southern thug rap.
