G.E.T.O.


Geto Boys - We Can't Be Stopped (Rap-A-Lot, 1991)

The most well-known event of Bushwick Bill's life was a shooting incident in which he lost his right eye. One night in May 1991, while depressed, drunk and suicidal, he went to his girlfriend's house and forced her to shoot him. As she refused, he threatened to harm their baby, after a struggle the gun went off piercing his eye and the bullet got stuck inside his head. He survived the accident, but lost his eye. The whole story is told in detail in the song "Ever So Clear" and there is also a visualising music video to the song. The song name is a reference to the grain alcohol Everclear he was drinking at the time of the accident. While in hospital, a picture was taken for The Geto Boys' next album We Can't Be Stopped. On the picture the two other Geto Boys Willie D and Scarface push in a gurney down a hospital hall and the bloodied swollen eye can clearly be seen. According to his MySpace page, is now a born-again Christian. He has completed a Christian rap album entitled Testimony of Redemption. Bushwick Bill stands at 3'8".

(well, im glad the little fella taunted his woman so, otherwise we wouldn't have had such a good cover)

Geto Boys - Till Death Do Us Part (Rap-A-Lot, 1993)

Willie D had fallen out with Bushwick and Mr. Scarface so theres no appearance from him on this one, instead Big Mike joined in the game. My favourite of all the Geto Boys stuff although for pure comedy value alone the earlier albums can't be beaten.

these are the Geto Boys 4th and 5th LPs, the 2nd and 3rd posted earlier are...

  2. This is, most definitely one of my top five favorite album covers. The scenery, the gear, the hideously swollen eyeball, the swagger... What a fucking story!
