This Week's Panel: Preemo, O.N.E., Medicine Girl, Renzo, Yung Truth, Chane, Scooby, Kane, Kyle Hubbard, Mac, more.

Not Invited: The man who cried when he saw that other man die.

This Week's Prompt: Scarface is beginning to let loose information about his new album. Question: What is Scarface's best album?

Preemo: Untouchable. That's my favorite. Beats by Mike Dean. Followed closely by The Fix.


Yung Truth: Untouchable was Scarface's best album. It debuted at No. 1 and peaked on the chart for two weeks, and it had the best features (Tupac, etc).


Renzo: Scarface's best album is The Fix because you can play it back and forth without skipping songs. It sounds great sonically and all the songs blend well together. He also never takes too sharp of a curve to where you're lost or you mistake him as [a] normal rapper. Features were amazing, beats were amazing, singles were on point. Intro is haunting. It's The Fix, pimpin'.

O.N.E.: Made was Scarface's best album because being a Scarface fan for a long time, I could tell he wanted to do that project high content.


Scooby: I gotta say this: He got a few. Untouchable, World Is Yours, Fix; Face is Face, sir.


Medicine Girl: It's between The Diary and The Fix.


Rob Gullatte: That's a tough one. I'm torn between The Diary and The Fix, but leaning towards The Fix.


Kane: Untouchable. Raw, unscripted, good Southern hip-hop.

Chane: For me, it's a tie between The Diary and The Fix. Both albums are classics to me. Diary had that "Never Seen a Man Cry" song. That's when I first became a Scarface fan. I could play The Fix from start to finish no skips. Face is a living legend, I know his next album gonna be nice.


Show: Probably Untouchable; lot of evolution shown.


Kyle Hubbard: The Fix.


Mac: I loved all of them, but the ones that stand out the most to me are Untouchable and The Fix just because of the beat selection. Early, Scarface was influenced by Public Enemy and NWA.


D-Risha: The Fix. He was Def Jam South president, had Kanye West on production and Jay/Beanie features. Instant classic.


Eskabel: The Fix. Certified classic.

These yungstas need to do their research.  Nothing can ever top Mr Scarface is Back.  Murder by Reason of Insanity, Money & the Power, I'm Dead...Listen to 'Good Girl Gone Bad' and you'll think that you're watching a movie.  One of the best southern rap albums ever made.

If you like hip-hop, you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It’s a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives and a few songs that matter to them. Pretty powerful stuff. Check’em out here:

The Diary is my favorite, it's just solid all the way through. One album he took part in that I felt never got it full due was Scarface Presents The Product. That album is great, but it seems it was completely off most peoples radar.

To my knowledge, I don't ever remember Scarface albums being promoted to the extreme. If your a fan you'll check for his shit regardless. 

But that product album was almost ghost- I don't think I ever recall seeing anything review wise, promotion wise, etc. for that album. It dropped then just disappeared. But from front to back that shit stands up, even now. The flows, beats, the way the 3 played off each other. I'm not calling it a classic, but that shit definitely ranks up there.
