So me and Vik went to Portland on a road trip last week, and of course on the way their, my ipod hit up Glass Candy’s track Geto Boys, a homage to the rap trio Geto Boys and their song Mind Playing Tricks On Me. I then mentioned to Vik how I keep on expecting NXNE to book these guys for their Sunday rap show, since in the past few years they have had Del La Sol, Pharcyde and Digable Planets on the bill. Similar acts from a similar era.
I don’t need to wait until June. Today it was announced that Geto Boys will be playing the Red Bull Sound Select Party in SXSW. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Geto Boys are a rap group from the early 90s best known for a few hits, namely Mind Playing Tricks On Me and Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster. The songs are hilarious and also, sound great. So basically I’m pretty excited about this announcement.
Also, someone made a youtube video with Geto Boys and Muppets a few years ago. How do you beat that?
