    Emeritus concludes Scarface’s tenure as one of the genre’s favorite artists actively recording. It’s a depressing thought, yet this is an album that stands proudly among an already hugely influential back catalogue.
  2. No one will forget after Emeritus, an album that proves Scarface deserves accolades and titles just as much as we deserve for him not to retire.

    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', '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.
