As far as legends from the South go, you don’t get more connected and respected than The Geto Boys. Scarface, Willie D, and Bushwick Bill have been making groundbreaking records for nearly three decades, and now with the help of crowdfunding, they want to get back in the studio again. A Kickstarter page for the new project, called Habeas Corpus, has appeared online with reward packages like barhopping with Bushwick Bill and a one-of-a-kind Geto Boys casket. Seems like those two probably go together more than you’d know.
Talking with Rolling Stone about the upcoming record, the group admits that things aren’t all easy for their first project together in 10 years:
“‘We f*ckin’ hate each other, man,’ he says. ‘It’s like, ‘Motherf*cker, I don’t even wanna be onstage with you. Can we put up three stages, man? I’ll sing my verse, you sing your verse.” He laughs. ‘The Geto Boys, man, we’re that family that can’t stand each other but love each other. That’s us. Family’s family, man: ‘I can’t stand that motherf*cker, I wanna kill him.’ Yeah man, but you can’t do that do your family.'”
Sounds like it’s going great! But really though, when these three get their heads together and make records, it can be some of the illest music to ever bless a pair of speakers. Hopefully, they can keep it tight and raise the funds to make this album which will feature production from Mike Dean, Tone Capone, N.O. Joe, as well as from Scarface and Willie D. Ice Cube is also slated to make an appearance which, if any Scarface fan knows well, should make a dynamite collab.
