[Review] Geto Boys @ Emo’s East 1.26.2013


14 years of patience and I FINALLY got to see legendary Houston hip hop trio and godfathers of Southern rap, Geto Boys. I can remember convincing my grandmother that she should take my brother and I to see Office Space in theaters (I was 12 and my grandmother was too sweet to think we would want to go to an “inappropriate” film). With artists like Ice Cube, Biz Markie, Kool Keith, and of course, Geto Boys, the soundtrack to that movie solidified my love for hip hop.

Though Willie D, Scarface, and Bushwick Bill are over 40, that didn’t stop them from bringing the house down at Emo’s East on Saturday night.

The show started off with each member coming out and performing some of their solo songs before they kicked it up a notch and tore up classic tracks like “Gangster of Love,” “Chuckie,” My Mind Is Playing Tricks On Me,” and, of course, “Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster.”

Willie D and Scarface even jumped off the set-list a few times to do some freestyles and beat boxes. But the best part of the night was Scarface’s awkwardly awesome facial expressions as he and Willie D tried to keep a leash on the incredibly drunk Bushwick Bill. Bushwick was downing Jagermeister and more or less stumbling around the stage, but, to my surprise, didn’t skip a beat when it came to his rhymes.

I would have hoped for better video and some good photos, but there was so much ganja smoke filling the venue that my Android camera was rendered almost useless. But here’s my video for “Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster,” any way.

Geto Boys 4 Life.
