Music Review: 'The Resurrection' (1996)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: The Geto Boys; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

The Houston trio Geto Boys must be the most durable group in hip-hop, having survived Bushwick Bill's self-inflicted gunshot wound and a bitter breakup. Now, five years later, the original lineup is back, heaving the mike with familiar heavy-handed vocal styles and graphic lyrics about ghetto life on The Resurrection. What makes this their best work is the album's festive mood, despite its harsh subject matter. B+
