Album: Won't Be Denied
Label: Big Boy
Long-time No Limit soldier Fiend is one of the more underrated energy rappers, as displayed on his early hit and mission statement "Baddest M-F Alive." He wasn't yet rocking with the "Whomp Whomp" adlib that he rode to success with No Limit, but his potency was fully formed on the DJ Precise-produced classic. Today Fiend's career is experiencing an unexpected, but welcome, third act on the heels of Curren$y's stoner rap success.
