  1. If this is truly the end for Scarface then Emeritus is a backdoor exit, an unassuming, professional album that quietly gets the job done.

    As a Houstonian, Face has always been proudly regarded as one of Hip-Hop's Juggernauts, amid the outsiders' opinion of the south. As a Houstonian, Face has always been proudly regarded as one of Hip-Hop's Juggernauts, amid the outsiders' opinion of the south. Emeritus confirms that greatness can ascend and not plateau. Amazing production paralelled by astounding lyricism. Scarface is top five dead or alive! Full Review »

    Subdued and a little too low-key for my liking. Face at no point reaches the heights scaled in previous albums 'The Diary', Subdued and a little too low-key for my liking. Face at no point reaches the heights scaled in previous albums 'The Diary', 'Mr Scarface...' and 'The Fix'. The three highlights are 'Still Here', 'Unexpected' and 'Emeritus'. The pointless Intro is again ruined by Lil J's boring and dull rambling diatribe. Not bad, just not as good as we've all come to expect from the big man. Full Review »

    Stands alongside Bun B, Outkast and Lil Wayne as a rare talent in southern rap.
