Album: The Fix
Label: Def Jam South, Island Def Jam, Universal Records
Producer: Kanye West
Houston rap legend Scarface always found time to collaborate with rappers from other regions, but his 2002 album The Fix seemed like a concerted effort to get out of his comfort zone. It featured production from industry heavyweights like Kanye West and the Neptunes and guest appearances by artists from across the country. Album highlight "Guess Who's Back" pairs Scarface with Roc-a-Fella soldiers Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel for drug kingpin posturing over diced up soul from Kanye.
