Influential Houston Hip Hop outfit, The Geto Boys are reforming after a 10 year break. Their forthcoming ninth studio album will be titled Habeas Corpus, but will not be released by their longtime recording home Rap-A-Lot. Instead, the trio of Bushwick Bill, Willie D and Scarface are looking to external funding via Kickstarter, with a goal of $100,000.
Incentives range from autographs and T-shirts to a golf outing with Scarface and a custom Geto Boys casket.
“We know what the fans wanna hear. We got it pretty tight,” Willie D told Rolling Stone.
He goes on to admit that there’s still tension between all three members.
“We f*ckin’ hate each other, man,” he says. “The Geto Boys, man, we’re that family that can’t stand each other, but love each other. That’s us. Family’s family, man. ‘I can’t stand that motherf*cker. I wanna kill him.’ Yeah man, but you can’t do that to your family.”
This will be their first new album since 2005’s The Foundation.
