geto boys til death do us part

Every Wednesday we pay homage to the music that made us who we are and keep our local history alive to share with all those who grew up during it or might just be hearing some of these hits for the first time. This week’s Album of the Week is one that had a huge impact on me and really put me on to Houston rap. The Geto Boys 1993 release, Til Death Do Us Part. This was the first album missing Willie D, who was replaced with Big Mike and really holds his own alongside Scarface and Bushwick. This album features hits like Crooked Officer, Straight Gangsterism, Bring It On and so much more….
