Product Description

Amazon.com

What the world needs now is The Fix--a brilliant hip-hop album with the soul of a blues record. Dirty South iconoclast Scarface has never been afraid to get deep; at this point a lot of his young-man wildness has been replaced by a mature understanding of life's cyclical nature. Lyrically complex and leaning heavily on somber chords, acoustic guitars, and scratchy soul samples, The Fix is not a light and bouncy throwaway album, but one that demands repeated listening. Nonetheless, this is also no crossover attempt--all you get is superior hip-hop, accented with a touch of R&B vocals courtesy of Kelly Price, Faith Evans, and Tanya Herron. Standout tracks include "In Between Us," featuring an impassioned star turn by guest MC Nas (Nasir Jones), the Kanye West-produced "In Cold Blood," and the gangsta lean "Sellout." But there's no question that "On My Block," an instant classic, is hands down the best cut. --Rebecca Levine

And I'm glad I did, because The Fix is his best solo album since The Diary.
E.J. Rupert
Guess Who's Back (Featuring Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel) - GREAT beat from Kanye, Jay, Face, and Beans all come hard, hook fits so well into the track - 5/5 5.

What's so admirable about Scarface is that when he raps, he never tries to impress anybody. With his voice, social commentary, and wicked on-and-off again flow, you can feel him AND believe him, unlike most icy, studio gangsta rappers today. That's why fans like myself have supported him, even on his okay days. And I'm glad I did, because The Fix is his best solo album since The Diary.
While his last albums (The Untouchable, "My Homies" compilation, Last of a Dying Breed) each had a few hot joints on them, this album never runs out of gems. Scarface still brings those hood tales to us like on "In Cold Blood" and "Keep Me Down". On the latter, the music is just plain funky, and speaking of production, the diverse production from everyone from Kanye West and T-Mixx works in his favor more on this album than on Last of a Dying Breed.
The song that you've all heard already, "On My Block" (which uses a slightly chopped-up, sped-up sample of Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack's "Be Real Black for Me"), sounds just as good now as it did the other million times I played it. Hearing that song (and seeing the video) reminds me of 1994 rap, where there's just a gangsta beat and a gangsta rhyme, minus any pimping, jiggy dancing and popping Mo'. And while most "back-in-the-day" raps are played-out now, Scarface wins by telling original tales of how it used to be.
Though I was skeptical to hear Scarface with The Neptunes and Faith Evans on "Someday", that track actually works, as does "What Can I Do" with Kelly Price. On the latter, 'Face goes back to his low-key, "I Seen a Man Die"-esque voice, which is classic in its own way. The other guest star contributions are also stellar: check out "I Ain't the One" with W.C. (man, that even looks good on paper).

Simply stated, Brad Jordan has been putting in work for years, ladies and gentlemen. As a Geto Boy and as a solo artist, Scarface has been impressing many hip hop fans for awhile. Tracks like the original "Scarface", "Mind Of A Lunatic", "Mr. Scarface", "Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta", "Money And The Power", "A Minute To Pray And A Second To Die", "Good Girl Gone Bad", "Now I Feel Ya" and his best song of all time in my opinion, "I Seen A Man Die" are still classics to this day. Scarface put the South on the map and it's good to see that he is still holdin' it down. "The Fix" is an all around CD. There were some bad reviews about 2000's "A Last Of A Dying Breed" for some reason. It may have been that Scarface was trying to be more diverse than he had on past CDs and he had a lot of guest appearances from his Def Jam mates. 1998's "My Homies" couldn't be counted as a Scarface CD because it was mainly brought out to include his friends in the rap business and on some songs Scarface wasn't even featured on them. So to some of his diehard fans, 1997's "The Untouchable" was his last real CD. "The Fix" may be Scarface at his best, but that depends on what aspect of Face that you like. If you like the hardcore and dillusional Scarface from the early Geto Boys CDs and his first solo CD, you may not enjoy his new CD as much as I do. This release demonstrates Scarface's growth in the game and he clearly demonstrates that he has matured in many ways. First of all you get the Scarface that we all have come to know and love with the hardcore stories of the hood in the 1st two tracks, "Safe" and the Kanye West produced "In Cold Blood". Nobody can tell a story like Scarface and in most cases they are real stories that are brought into the light by a song.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
Okay i bought it about ten minutes ago. The packaging was ambitious, so ambitious that the title Fix can't even be found on the cover. And the cd comes with a mock foil-wrap like the ones Face sold in the early eighties before he started rapping. Don't ask me how that got past the censors.
Enough about the cd cover. How does this Face stack up? Good, somewhere between the poorly recieved My Homies and Face masterpieces like the Diary and The World is Yours.
The Beats are good, for the most part. These days my expectations for any release are pretty low. I've been burned too many times. If it has three listenable cuts i'm happy. Now that Brad has been taken under the Def Jam wing Russel taints the Texas sound with a gloss that works in some cases (IN Between us) and fails in others (someday). Female back-ups don't really lend themselves to Scarface but he triumphs in spite of Def Jam tampering. And this glossy R&B sound didn't really infect Face until the late nineties (on Untouchable).
There are seven or eight good cuts and newcomers who aren't quite sure why Scarface took home the Best Lyricist at the Source Awards would do well to listen to The Fix. Scarface's greatest virtue is his ability to ignore the jiggy/ big willy BS that so many rappers rely on, talking about what kind of cars they have, how much money they have, how many women they have. And he probably owes his longevity to this. He's been in the game for fifteen plus years and in rap years that translates to about 150. He is one of a few top-notch acts (among them Wu-tang and Outkast) that is consistently original. The Fix will do nothing to lower him or elevate him even higher above the plateau very few reach. In short it's good and will probably be one of ten hip-hop releases worth a listen as 2002 comes to a close.
