Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Geto Boys: Scarface, Bushwick Bill, Willie D. (vocals).
  • Additional personnel: Flaj, FACEMOB, Menace Clan, DMG (vocals).
  • Recorded at Lil J's Studio, Houston, Texas.
  • The Geto Boys returned from a three-year hiatus (in which its three members released solo material) with 1996's THE RESURRECTION. Though the rap game had changed since they last had a collective stake in it, it quickly becomes evident that the Texas Boys remain as gangsta strong as ever. Scarface, Bushwick Bill, and Willie D continue to do what they've always done well--spit tales of crime, sex, and the dark side of the street over hardcore beats. Adept at evoking a gritty world of mayhem and thug life, their charm and humor are still in abundance here, while their three distinctive personalities play off each other in a dynamic way--making THE RESURRECTION live up to its lofty name.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/16/96, p.68) - 3 Stars - Good - "...spare music backing the most richly textured, authorative voices this side of the original N.W.A...."

Entertainment Weekly (4/26/96, p.58) - "...What makes this their best work is the album's festive mood, despite its harsh subject matter." - Rating: B+

The Source (5/96, p.69) - 4 Mics - Slammin' - "...showcases the Geto Boys as more than just crime underworld storytellers....[They] were never truly pushed off their verbal crack slanging corner in 5th Ward by dope, new school rhymers. They just needed new guns and a rising Black backlash to motivate them..."

Melody Maker (4/6/96, p.41) - "...their break from each other has made their collective work stronger....A weird, brave and genuinely provocative album. Who'd've thought it?"

Musician (8/96, p.90) - "...Opens with urgent phone discussion of organizing street niggaz all over the country to vote (without specifying the candidates), then explodes into four minutes of chanting `Die Muthafukka!' (without specifying the muttafukkaz)....Ominous, depressing, and biding time at a fork in the road between nihilism and genuine rebellion..."

Rap Pages (6/96, p.29) - 7 (out of 10) - "...Willie D and Bushwick Bill...are irresistible when they're joined by Scarface....Reunited and it feels so good."
