5.0 out of 5 stars Geto Boys Rock! August 8, 2008
By XXll
Format:Audio CD
Today we all know Bushwick Bill from his charistmatic late Friday night variety show that plays on Christian Broadcasting Network (Bushwick Bill's Gospel Hour - CBN, Friday 11:30pm Eastern). Many of his fans are completely unaware however that, before finding his calling in spreading the Gospel, in the 90s, Bill performed with the Geto Boys, perhaps the liveliest "Hip Hop" group of the era.

While the Geto Boys certainly were criticized for their excessive use of cuss works and racial epithets (come on guys, wouldn't "Trigger Happy African American" gotten the same point across) no one can disagree that they set the standard for all the performers who followed them. It is safe to say that, were it not for the Geto Boys there never would have been a "50 Cent."

In any case, as much as I love their first album, I think that "We Can't Be Stopped" is their strongest work. My kids all agree. It plays continuously in the minivan on the way to school, church, Walmart and the Saturday morning soccer games.

Now that the kids are "tuned in" and "turned on" to the Geto Boys, they are far more receptive to Bushwick Bill's evangelical message. We never miss the show. Our minister even TIVOs it and replays it for our Wednesday evening devotional. Before the church league softball game last week against the loathed Episcopalians, we even serenaded them with the complete verion of "Read My Nikes." It was great.

God Bless Bushwick Bill and the Geto Boys!

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it just for "My mind is playin tricks on me" April 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
They were definitly pioneers. In my mind they were the only Ol Skool Gangsta Rappers that you could say were equal to NWA. I love "Mind playin Tricks" It has the best beat ever

4.0 out of 5 stars True Hardcore S**T February 9, 2006
By T. Gore
Format:Audio CD
If you want good, angry, hard old school hip-hop, then The Geto boys should be right up your alley. Like other reviewers said, these guys are for real, and they probely laugh at guys like 50 and D-12. They have such an edge, that even though some of it is a bit sloppy at times, it is 100% from the heart, and its a great listen for hip-hop heads. If you see a midgets eye hanging out on the cover, that would be Bushwicks Bill eye that got a bullet in it from his girlfriend. When they were in the ER, they thought they should take a picture of it hanging out, and put it on their album cover. NEEDless to say, some record retailers banned the LP, and this even fueled the Geto Boys hate even stronger. This is one hard CD and not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome...hardcore, startling rap music (4.5/5) December 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Geto Boys 1991 album "We Can't Be Stopped" is a great listen. It is one of the albums that pioneered both gangsta rap and southern rap. They were the first rap act to gain national attention from Texas, and the Houston trio of Scarface, Willie D, and Bushwick Bill also helped gangsta rap reach the mainstream. However, this album is often forgotten today, eclipsed by albums from their contemporaries like NWA. I think this album shows the Geto Boys at their controversial best. Later on in their careers the group would embrace a different sound, but this album is simple, in your face, angry hip hop. Over fourteen tracks, the Geto Boys challenge mainstream America, dealing with such topics as war, poverty, and ghetto hostilities. They create stunningly violent and crazy depictions of ghetto life and paranoia, and the way in which they voice their problems and concerns was never duplicated. All three MCs have distinctive and compelling characters. Scarface is a lyrical master, one of the greatest rappers of all time, a voice of the ghetto who has lived through everything. Willie D is a wild, angry man who often sounds crazy. Bushwick Bill is one mad midget, who is not afraid to lash out at government and power and is behind all of the group's horrorcore. Production is very simple, utilizing rough and raw drumbeats and bass and sparse instrumentals and sampling to create a focused musical sound. It has a gritty, underground feel. One of hip hop's finest songs, the legendary "Mind Playin' Tricks on Me," makes this album worth the purchase alone. This album is simply entertaining from start to finish. "We Can't Be Stopped" is a compelling, fun listen that I recommend to all rap fans. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad quality CD March 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this cassette back in the 90s and the music and group was awesome so I decided to get the CD to go back in time and listen to them again but I was disappointed when I got the CD in the mail. It just looked fake. The cover looks worse than a scanned copy of the original and the sound quality is just horrible. It's too low, full of hiss and it says on the cover digitally remastered. I don't know if I got a bad copy but this CD is just horrible. I would've given 5 stars had the quality been good so the 1 star goes to the CD cover and the quality of the music. I also got another CD from them and that one is fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars For crying out loud PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM!!!! April 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dear buyer,

Be warned before you buy! In case you didn't know; anything that is "screwed" or "chopped" is just a remake of the original album...but not in a good way. "Screwed" is like taking the entire album and slowing it down so that the song sounds like it is being played in slow motion. This is especially creepy on Chuckie. "Chopped" makes the song sound like the CD is skipping on every other word; which is just plain annoying. I don't know why anyone would produce an album like this. Oh wait, yes I do. Money.
