Performer Notes

  • Scarface once again quickly follows a Geto Boys album, Till Death Do Us Part, with a solo release, The World Is Yours, just as he'd done two years earlier with his brilliant solo debut, Mr. Scarface Is Back. The circumstances are otherwise quite different, though. Scarface had been on a roll in 1991: fresh off the breakthrough success of "Mind Playing Tricks on Me" and its similarly well-received Geto Boys album, We Can't Be Stopped, he unveiled a cinematic, somewhat conceptual solo debut that made him a bona fide national superstar. Furthermore, much changed within the rap world between 1991-1993, specifically the end of free-for-all sampling and the widespread proliferation of gangsta rap. Scarface thus delivers a follow-up that's a huge leap forward from his debut, both in terms of production and rhetoric. He works here mostly with producer N.O. Joe, who crafts a G-funk style distinctly modeled after the West Coast sounds of the moment … la The Chronic, and he favors personally introspective rhymes rather than his heedful narratives of the past. The heartfelt seven-and-a-half-minute "Now I Feel Ya" showcases this new lyrical approach best, as Scarface rhymes at one point about his new son and how in turn he's had to alter his lifestyle. The significant changes Scarface has made here on The World Is Yours showcase his unwillingness to revel in the past, as glorious as his past may have been, yet they at the same time may frustrate fans of his early work, as his new style moves him further into the gangsta rap mainstream. ~ Jason Birchmeier
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (9/17/93, p.88) - "...Scarface has a husky, slightly twanged cadence that always seems to border on breathlessness...his voice adds a dollop of remorse and ambivalence to the mix...this tension saves THE WORLD IS YOURS from becoming just another rote exercise..." - Rating: B

Vibe (10/93, p.116) - "...the best moments on THE WORLD IS YOURS [twist] gangsta rap inside out to use its rhetoric of violence to narrate inner turmoil..."
