Guess Who’s Back

Scarface

Yes y’all, I’m back in action after my brief hiatus, ready to go. Thanks to everyone that offered their love and support while I was away.

Let’s start things fresh with one of the illest collab tracks hip-hop has to offer, Scarface featuring Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel “Guess Who’s Back” (for obvious reasons) off the Houston veteran’s 2002 album The Fix. A pre-College Dropout Kanye West is on the beat, flipping “Sunrise” by Motown collective The Originals.

All three rappers spit the real here, as Hov reminisces with lines like  “Straight from the oven wit it, came from the dirt/ I emerged from it all without a stain on my shirt” while Face hustles hard rhyming “Gotta see my feet dude, you do shit a fiend do/ The fire get too hot in the kitchen, I hit the streets fool” and Beans parallels the struggle “Play them corners like a safety, watch the traffic switch/ Young’n never pump fake, and you’ll get past the blitz.

Not many MCs possess the kind of chemistry heard here, as inflated egos often get in the way of making great music. “Guess Who’s Back” is an ideal collab, as each verse feeds off the other’s energy while sending a different message. A truly coherent, perfectly-executed classic.

Shouts to Nappy Afro and The Mark Out for the linkage, Enjoy!
