Geto Boys Free for Throwback Thursday

The Geto Boys was the first hip hop group that caught my attention many years ago. The group originally consisted of Bushwick Bill, DJ Ready Red, Sire Jukebox and Prince Johnny C. Following the release of Making Trouble, Rap-A-Lot Records dropped Sire Jukebox and Johnny C from the group, and added Scarface and Willie D. The rest is history as they became one of the greatest rap groups of all-time. Throughout the years, there have been different variations of the group. Till Death Do Us Part was their fourth album and Big Mike replaced Willie D for this one. Bushwick Bill, Scarface, and Willie D reunited for the next album called The Resurrection.

Two and a half years later, the Geto Boys dropped their sixth album called Da Good da Bad & da Ugly. Bushwick Bill left the group to pursue his solo career so it was only Scarface and Willie D. All three reunited in 2005 with their final album called The Foundation. Unfortunately, Bushwick Bill has passed away while Face & Willie D started a podcast together. With the 50th anniversary of hip hop, Face & Willie D aren’t on good terms because Face performed without him. Either way, let’s look back at their 6th album. Da Good da Bad & da Ugly was a really good album and actually reached #5 in the country. The album featured the Outlawz, Devin the Dude, Yukmouth, Tela and a very young Beyoncé. There are many great tracks, but my favorite is Free. Free is my featured Throwback Thursday track. Check out the track up above and below you can view the track listing and stream link.
