The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!

"Straight Gangsterism"

Yeah...I know Mike ain't in that pic but goddamn when those four motherfuckers were together they put the South on the map for a Southerner. We knew we had talent when these boys dropped.

Fresh off a split with original member Willie D, the Geto Boys didn't miss a beat. In fact, the addition of Big Mike added more lyrical ferocity to the group. Mike had already proven himself as a member of The Convicts ("Free World" anyone? Don't sleep on "the Pita Man"). With another artist added to the group who focused on a balance of delivery and lyrics, Scarface only stepped his game up further.

All three members, Bushwick, Face & Mike, ripped "Mr. Officer". On solo efforts, they brought heat to the track. But, it was when you hear Mike & Face paired up that you see the true power of these two, on some Twin Towers, Olajuwon & Sampson, 'Zo & Zeke type shit. "No Nuts No Glory," "Straight Gangsterism"...Mike doin his do...."Raise Up"...'Face solo..."Murder After Midnight"...woohoo.

Dare I say, 'Face owes part of his legacy to Mike pushin him on this particular album.
