Houston rapper Scarface and his Geto Boys crew are reportedly teaming back up for a full-fledged national tour and possible group album.
According to reports, legal paperwork is the only setback in Geto Boys putting together a follow-up to 2005’s The Foundation.
According to Willie D, the group is on board to craft another album, with logistics so far being the only delay. “We know that we want to do a record but it’s a situation where right now we’re at the point of getting the paperwork done right so everybody’s on the same page,” the MC told XXL in a phone conversation last week. “Once we get the paperwork done then we can do it.” (XXL Mag)
Check out why Scarface previously said he didn’t want to force a Geto Boys reunion on the next page…
A couple years ago, Scarface said the music industry had him too shook about putting out new releases.
“In all honesty, man, I want to drop an album but, I don’t want it to get lost in the wash,” Face said in an interview. “You know what I’m saying? Hip-hop is bumper to bumper now. Everybody got a record company and everybody is putting out albums. You know what I mean? And then you look at hip-hop 25 years from now and hip-hop will be rewritten. It’ll be, it’s suburban white kids now. You know what I mean? Seriously. You don’t see it? Aight, well, save the music. [A Mac N Brad album?] That’s not gonna happen. Like I said, I want to release an album but I’m scared to death. Yeah. It may not be right now but it’s coming.” (FUSE)
He also vowed to not cop out to a Geto Boys reunion album but did admit one final tour could possibly go down.
“No sir,” Face added when asked about a possible reunion LP. “No sir. No, no. No, no, no. It won’t be none of that. No Geto Boys reunions, none of that. You know what? We might tour. Maybe. We may tour one more time. As far as Geto Boys albums? No sir. No sir.” (FUSE)
Scar previously talked about working alongside Beanie Sigel for the collective effort.
“Man, Beans is a f*cking class act, man,” Scarface said in an interview. “I ain’t heard nobody f*cking with him, man. He’s a f*cking genius, dude. We’re got a relationship outside of f*cking radio or whatever the f*ck is going on. That’s my partner, though. I can’t wait for this sh*t, man. Me and Beans is doing some easy sh*t right now. Separate solo acts, you know, but eventually we’re gonna double back and do that Mac N Brad sh*t, you know. I just wanted to break that news on XM, Shade 45, I f*cking with it.” (Shade 45)
