"Kind of trigger happy like the Geto Boys!" Speak on it Cube. The Geto Boys never really got their just due. By extension, Scarface has been perennially underrated since forever, but I'll tackle that later. If you grew up in the south, you knew how to appreciate what these guys were bringing to the table. To the uninitiated, get a taste of some southern cooking. Holla. GO LAKERS!!! lol
Big Mike - Playa Playa
"You slingin' them dollars but you ain't slingin' that dick right." Big Mike solo joint? Isn't he biting off more than he can chew? At least that's what I thought before I peeped it. When my boy Sebastian played this particular jam, I found out that beans and rice go well with crow. All praise to the Muthafuckin' Pita Man.
Willie D - Bald Headed Hoes
The most ignorant song title ever? Maybe. But coming from William D, author of "Play With Your Mama," what do you expect?
Bushwick Bill - Ever So Clear
"Why did you shoot me in the eye?" Um...because you wanted her to. Bushwick was a little nuts, and by little I mean holy fucking shit was this guy insane. This song made me promise to never drink Everclear in my life. Jager just makes me lose my memory. It's never made me want shoot my eye out like Ralphie. Psychotic, murderous, drunk dwarfs. God bless 'em.
Scarface - Hand Of The Dead Body
"So fuck Bill and Hillary..." Cube never hesitated to stick to Bill, did he? lol Anyhoo, here is another classic from Freshman year. My neighbors played "The Diary" religiously. I couldn't go to sleep without hearing gun shots and 'Face. Hand Of The Dead body isn't a lullaby but it's still pretty dope.
Scarface feat Too $hort, Tela, Devin The Dude - Fuck Faces
I wanna take this beat behind the middle school and get it pregnant.
Geto Boys - Crooked Officer
Even though my mom used to be a cop, I'm not all that enamored with Five-0. I've met some cool cops, but I've also encountered more dicks than Tera Patrick. I wish no ill will or harm towards onetime. I just wish they'd dial the assholish-ness down to about a 5 or a 6.
Geto Boys - Mind's Playing Tricks On Me
"And if I die, then my child a be a bastard." That line always cracked me up. Here is the video that introduced the Boys to the world. I remember watching Rap City in frothy anticipation of seeing this video. Before youtube, you had to wait a minute when it came to seeing your favorite videos. When it finally came on, the warm and fuzzies soon followed. At the time, I think I liked this joint more than red kool-aid. Yeah, I know. That's a bold statement.
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
Dusty Springfield - You Don't Have To Say You Love Me
Dusty Springfield had some tremendous pipes. It's too bad she isn't that well known to cats nowadays. She got it done during her time. For real.
