Ever See This 1991 Geto Boys Performance on ‘Yo! MTV Raps’? (Video)
Now that the hopes of a Geto Boys reunion album have been put to rest, fans of the Houston trio are undoubtedly disappointed, but thanks to the glory of the digital age, footage of them performing over the course of their career is perennially available. In this rarely seen clip, Bushwick Bill, Scarface, and Willie D perform “Ain’t With Being Broke” from their 1991 juggernaut We Can’t Be Stopped. The performance has all the details of an early ’90s Hip-Hop performance; call and response with the studio audience, dancers in scrunchies, and the high-energy of a crowd who is experiencing a culture coming into its own.
Nearly 25 years later, the Geto Boys remain one of the most beloved Hip-Hop groups of all time, despite being officially only a duo today, with Scarface stepping back. Bushwick Bill is the subject of a new documentary, and Scarface will be receiving BET’s prestigious “I Am Hip-Hop Award.” Check out the video below to witness Hip-Hop history happening a quarter of a century ago.
