Geto Boy Alum Big Mike Breaks His Silence with New Album

Big Mike will always be linked to his ephemeral stint in the Geto Boys. When Willie D left the Geto Boys in 1992, J. Prince called on Mike to replace him. Mike left L.A. and a potential deal with Suge Knight's Death Row to join Scarface and Bushwick Bill in Houston. He featured prominently on 1993's gold-selling Till Death Do Us Part. He left when Willie D rejoined the group on the next album.

Still, Mike would cash in on his new fame. His robust performances on Till Death standouts like "Crooked Officer" and "No Nuts, No Glory" paved the way for a strong run. He kept the momentum rolling, starting with 1994's Something Serious. His last LP, Serious as Can Be, dropped in 2009.

After a three-year layoff, the New Orleans native returns with a batch of new songs, Bayou Classic: Love.Faith.Honor.Loyalty. It hits shelves and digital outlets on December 13th.
