My Homies is the fifth studio album by American rapper Scarface. The album was released March 3, 1998, by Rap-A-Lot Records. The album features production by Mike Dean, Mr. Lee, N.O. Joe, Scarface and Tone Capone. It peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number 4 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum by the RIAA on April 6, 1998. The album features guest performances by 2Pac, Master P, Ice Cube, Devin the Dude, B-Legit, UGK, Too Short, Do or Die and Willie D. Scarface appears solo on two songs, performs with others on twelve, and does not contribute vocals on sixteen, which was a similar format by Dr. Dre in his 1992 album The Chronic where he didn’t appear in three tracks himself. A sequel to the album, My Homies Part 2, was released on March 7, 2006.
Along with singles, music videos were produced for the songs: “Homies & Thuggs”, featuring 2Pac and Master P and “Sex Faces”, featuring Too Short, Tela and Devin the Dude. In the original of “Homies & Thuggs”, 2Pac’s verse was later added. The song, “Sleepin’ In My Nikes”, was originally released on the Seagram album, Souls on Ice. The solo track, “Boo Boo’n”, was later re-released on the Devin the Dude album, The Dude.
