The Last of a Dying Breed [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Although Scarface has enjoyed success as an original member of the controversial rap trio the Geto Boys, and as a platinum-selling solo artist, the Houston native apparently still has a score to settle with the mainstream. Long before Master P. and Juvenile represented the Dirty South, Scarface and the Geto Boys helped put Southern rap on the hip-hop radar with the tortured masterpiece "Mind Playing Tricks on Me." And, as Last of a Dying Breed confirms, the gravel-throated Scarface still has one of the greatest voices in gangsta rap. Picking up where his 1998 double disc, My Homies, left off, Scarface continues to entertain with his reflective and often violent portrayals of ghetto life. On "Watch Ya Step," he ...

Picking up where his 1998 double disc, My Homies, left off, Scarface continues to entertain with his reflective and often violent portrayals of ghetto life. On "Watch Ya Step," he explains, "Music is a therapy to ease the mind, but therapy to me is to squeeze a nine." Redman and Kurupt join the mayhem on the ominous tracks "And Yo" and "O.G. 2 Me," respectively. Scarface also trades rhymes with Jay-Z about a drug-related heist on the spooky, organ-accented "Get Out" and gets explicit with Houston newcomer Devin on "In and Out." Not bad for an O.G.

All Music Guide - Michael Gallucci
The sixth album from Scarface doesn't stray too far from his usual subjects: pain, murder, mayhem, and vengeance are all well-represented on this sort-of concept album involving a life in turmoil. It's certainly Scarface's most personal album, with the rapper taking more responsibility for his actions and accounting for his words and actually providing some well-deserved introspection on a few tracks. But this is still a street album, and Scarface still often takes a lazy street stance. Nonetheless, it's a good representation of a gangsta's development into conscientiousness.
