As many of you know, I’m a huge No Limit Records fan. This dates back to when I use to tear out the album posters from the Source Magazine and hang them on the wall. Fiend was one of my favorite rappers on the label and his style was addictive. 20 years ago today, Fiend released his debut album, There’s One In Every Family. Master P, Mystikal, Snoop Dogg, Silkk the Shocker, Mac, Soulja Slim, UGK, Big Ed and Kane & Abel were featured on the album. The legendary Beats by the Pound handled the production on the project. Take My Pain was the first track on the album and it featured Master P, Silkk the Shocker and Sons of Funk. This is one of the best tracks off the album. Take My Pain was one of many standout tracks from There’s One In Every Family.
The final track, Live Me Long is another favorite track from the album. One thing I’ll say about Fiend and that he’s a soulful and deep dude. Whether he’s spitting lyrics or singing the hook on the track, Fiend brings soul to it. Live Me Long was a solo cut with a fast pace beat, but Fiend killed it as it was once featured on my Throwback Thursday. Other standout tracks include: Do You Know, Big Tymer, Who Got That Fire, Only A Few, Streets Ain’t Safe, Slangin and What Cha Mean. No Limit Records released a plethora of albums and this is one of the better albums that came from the label. Make no mistake, this isn’t just a great No Limit or southern album, but a great hip hop album. Fiend has also been featured on projects from Jadakiss, Currensy and DMX.
