Scarface’s Deeply Rooted album is scheduled for release September 4 and in an interview with Rolling Stone published yesterday (July 16), the Houston rapper discusses why a The Geto Boys reunion album will not be happening.
Geto Boys member Willie D launched a Kickstarter campaign in June to raise funds for what would be the group’s eighth studio album, Habeas Corpus. The campaign ended yesterday (July 15) short of its $100,000 goal.
“In all honestly, I don’t know if that’s what the fans actually wanted,” Scarface says of the group’s failed Kickstarter campaign. “I feel like if that’s what they wanted, then that’s what we’d be doing.
“If talks of doing another Geto Boys album reappears, and that’s what the people want, make no mistake about it, I’m down with the people,” Mr. Scarface says.
The Houston rapper says he’d rather be producing his sons’ album if that’s not what the fans want. “I got three boys that’s extremely talented,” he says. “I got three boys that’s probably better rappers than I’ll ever be.”
Scarface acknowledges that Geto Boys had a good run and agrees with fans on not having a Geto Boys reunion.
“Man, we had a hell of a time, bro,” the longtime Rap-a-Lot Records rapper says. “We had a great run. And every few years we should tour. But I don’t know if that reunion is ever gonna be. If the fans don’t wanna do that shit, then I don’t do it. I’m with the fans on this one.”
