If you don’t know by now, Scarface is one of my favorite rappers of all-time. As a matter of fact, he’s my 3rd favorite right behind 2Pac and Nas, which says a lot. To me, Scarface has been consistent with his releases whether it’s solo or with the Geto Boys. His releases have spanned across 4 decades, which is amazing. 15 years ago today, Scarface released another classic with The Fix and it was well-received by the public & critics. Back in the day, it received a 5-mic rating from the Source Magazine, which was huge during that time. The album featured Jay-Z, Nas, Beanie Sigel, Faith Evans and WC with a couple of tracks produced by Kanye West. My favorite tracks off the album are In Cold Blood, Guess Who’s Back, My Block, Keep Me Down, What Can I Do, Someday and Heaven.
- The Fix (Intro)
- In Cold Blood
- Guess Who’s Back ft. Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel
- My Block
- Keep Me Down
- What Can I Do? Ft. Kelly Price
- In Between Us ft. Nas
- Someday ft. Faith Evans
- Heaven ft. Kelly Price
- I Ain’t The One ft. WC
- Fixed (Outro)
My favorite track has to be Heaven from the entire album and that says a lot because the album is filled with bangers. During this time, Scarface had become the President of Def Jam South and this was the only album he released with them. What more could be said is that Scarface really wanted to build that label full of the best artists from the south. During that time, he signed Ludacris, but also wanted to sign T.I., Slim Thug, David Banner and many more. Not only Scarface makes great music, but he also got a good ear when listening for and getting new talent.
