The Diary is the third studio album by American rapper Scarface, released in 1994 on Rap-A-Lot Records. Produced primarily by Scarface (under his birth name Brad Jordan) and past collaborator N.O. Joe, it is the first Scarface album to feature production work by Mike Dean, who would later produce on nearly all of Scarface's future albums. The album's only guest appearances are on the single "Hand of the Dead Body", which features Ice Cube and a hook performed by an uncredited Devin the Dude

The album was released to widespread critical and commercial success. It peaked at #2 on both the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, and was certified Platinum in sales later in 1994. It is one of the few albums to receive a perfect rating from both The Source and XXL. Its two singles, "Hand of the Dead Body" and "I Seen a Man Die", also achieved chart success.
