The Geto Boys‘ second album, but the first one with the ‘realest’ line-up: Scarface, Willie D & Bushwick Bill (plus DJ Ready Red). This album is as groundbreaking as NWA’s Straight Outta Compton in many ways – with it’s violent and misogynistic topics. The beats are excellent and the emcees are dope as well. The album that put Houston Hip Hop on the map.

So they hadn't developed their own sound yet, having just added Scarface to the band, but their bars are still fantastic. The LP also features several famous classic rock and disco/funk samples that were uncleared and not legally used; so, we got "Geto Boys", a remix album of these, next. 'Scarface' is one of their best.

Clear upgrade over their last album but I'm still not really fucking with it. "Gangsta of Love" is a banger.
