Geto Boys' Greatest Hits, Video Style
[Ummm... I feel like I should point out that, unless you were literally born yesterday, you should realize many people could consider the following content extremely NSFW. Like that's going to stop you. Carry on, then.]
I have to say, as someone who hasn't listened to much rap in the past few years, I'm pretty damn excited about tonight's Geto Boys show at Warehouse Live. Since I've already said my piece about the group, I thought a fun way to preview the show - tickets are still available at www.warehouselive.com - would be to compile a bunch of their videos. Gotta let your nuts hang, as it were. - Chris Gray
