Within the last decade, one of the best products to roll off Def Jam’s assembly line was Scarface’s The Fix. Released seven years ago, the album was revered as one of Face Mob’s best work. 636,000 fans agreed and The Source bestowed it with a 5 mic rating.
Aside from the poignant lyrics, what made The Fix so special was its escape. A colleague revealed to me that the album influenced him to get baptized. He said found he solace in tracks like, “Someday” and “Between Us.” For me, “My Block” transported me to Houston’s 5th Ward, while “What Can I Do” allowed me to roam the heavens. Add features from Nas, Jay-Z, and Beanie Sigel and The Fix turned out to be more than just a quick hit.
