Ghetto Boys: Be Down from (Rap-A-Lot, 1988, 12″)

I’ve been reading Scarface’s new memoir and by coincidence, also picked up this early Geto Boys 12″ the other week, back when 1) they were called the Ghetto Boys and 2) before Scarface had joined the crew. This song, for example, is pretty much a Willie D Johnny C. solo track.1 Nice use of “Slippin’ Into Darkness.”

365 Days of Soul, #157

  1. Oops. For some reason, I thought Willie was originally from NY but either way, clearly I can’t tell people’s voices apart.

  1. I don’t think that’s Willie D rapping. May be Prince Johnny C. Willie hadn’t been in the group yet. Ya slippin O-Dub. Greetz from Hamburg, Germany
