Protégés of Scarface, Facemob formed around the talents of five rappers from five different states, with no connections that didn't involve the former Geto Boy. Florida native Devin originally performed with Rap-a-Lot's Odd Squad; Houston's Smit-D was a childhood friend of Scarface's; 350, the only female member, was invited after passing him a tape at a show in Cleveland; from St. Paul, DMG originally impressed Scarface so much he gained his own solo album (1993's Rigormortiz) for RAL; and Chicago native Chi-Ray, who the group formed around, wasn't so much a rapper as a veteran of area talent shows. The group released a heavily hyped 1996 debut, The Other Side of the Law, on Rap-a-Lot, and returned (surprisingly) in 2002 with Silence. ~ John Bush, Rovi
