I find it hard to believe Scarface and Willie weren't friends with Bill at all, outside of the studio; why then were they escorting him into the hospital after he got shot in the eye?

That really explains a lot to me. Geto Boys was really the first group from Houston I can remember that went national. Bill live last July.

Huh, I had no idea that none of the original members are left. They're kind of like Napalm Death in that way.

Why'd you shoot me in the eye/ I'da shot you in the body...

Still the best rap lyric complaining to your girlfriend about where she shot you. HANDS DOWN!
