Throwback Thursdays: Geto Boys - Mind Playing Tricks On Me (1991)
Per email request. This song right here is not only a classic, but is probably a close second in terms of the most paranoid song I can think of. Number one, of course, would have to be this.
The members of the Geto Boys were Scarface, Willie D, and Bushwick Bill, who is probably the only midget rapper ever. Willie D and Bushwick Bill kinda disappeared after Geto Boys stopped making records, but Scarface is still around today. It's actually funny when you realize how different he both looks and sounds in this video.
While we're here, I might as well go ahead and point out that regardless of what anyone else thinks, Scarface is undeniably the King of the South. I know a lot of other rappers claim it, but let's be serious. If I were to rank them, it would probably be something like:
2. Andre 3000
3. Bun B
4. T.I. / Ludacris
5. Big Boi
And if your top 5 includes a rapper that refers to himself as "Mr. Lawnmower", you're buggin'.
