iTunes Editors’ Notes

A groundbreaking group and the first to put Houston (and Rap-A-Lot Records) on the map, The Geto Boys stormed onto the scene in the late '80s, serving up a potent blend of Fifth Ward hardcore gangster tales, extreme-yet-comical misogyny, and riotously funky beats. The three core members—Scarface, Willie D, and Bushwick Bill—each sported a different style and persona. They were dope individually but even stronger together. This 25-cut compilation includes all their signature songs: the crossover smash "Mind Playin Tricks on Me," the Skynard-sampling "Gangsta of Love," the Child's Play–inspired horrorcore jam "Chuckie," and the low-key thugged-out anthem "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta." At their peak, nobody was doing it better than The Geto Boys. Insanely influential with hits for days, they are and will always be true hip-hop royalty. Whether you're an old head who remembers them from the golden era or a young buck with an ear for classics, this is absolutely essential listening.

Blocked from distributing their 1990 major-label debut by Geffen — who insisted that a track dealing with necrophilia as well as murder was a step too far — the group was saved by producer Rick Rubin, who arranged another distributor for the album, released on his own Def American label. The controversy,...
