Overview: This album is simply perfect. In my opinion, the best ever. It’s wholesome, it’s very harmonic, and it has a diverse tracklist the comes together very well. This album is about Scarface reminicing, soul searching, and reflecting on his life. With the heavy soul, legendary lyricism and knowledge he packages it in. Can’t forget where you came from. This album took you on a journey of his life and his mindset. From chilling on his block, to seeing the negative of his block, to reaching deep into his soul, to keeping it G and keeping it moving. Face really opened up and shook our world. The features fit his message perfectly. Faith and Kelly added a soft touch to the strong, soulful words of his. Nas gave more perspective to the one Face was portraying. Jay and Beanie let people know he’s back. WC helped him wrap it up on a gangster tip. Having some great producers complementing the words of Face makes this masterpiece a timeless classic. I loved it.
