Geto Boys, 1996

“THE COMPOUND” - RAp-a-lot headquarters (houston, tx) PHOTO BY deron neblett In the mid-90s rap music was at a crossroads where the generally underground genre was starting to receive not only larger mainstream attention, but acceptance. It was also a time when rap groups proved to have equal if not bigger voices than soloists. Scarface, Willie D and Bushwick Bill opted to put their differences to the side, reuniting with their 1996 classic The Resurrection. With rap slowly trading in political stances for jiggy dances, the Geto Boys kept the reality rap flag flying with songs like “The World’s A Ghetto,” “Geto Fantasy” and “Point of No Return.” The reunion would be short-lived as GB’s next album dropped sans Bill, and the one that followed was only done to fulfill contract obligations. Either way, even though it came out that none of the members of GB were the closest of friends, they still put out music that proved a fist is stronger than a finger. 80 // OZONE MAG
