Geto Boys Launch Kickstarter Campaign for ‘Habeas Corpus’ Album [VIDEO]
The Houston rap trio, which consists of Scarface, Willie D and Bushwick Bill, are seeking to raise $100,000 through July 15. There are plenty of rewards being offered for your donation. There's an exclusive Geto Boys Habeas Corpus T-shirt, advance digital downloads of the LP, limited-edition colored vinyl and an autographed Pieces of Insanity art book curated by Willie D. For the big spenders, there's an opportunity for you to play golf with Scarface and go bar-hopping with Bushwhick Bill.
"For the past 9 years, our fans have been pleading with us to drop one more album, and we’ve been having light and sometimes heavy talks about getting back in the studio," the Kickstarter page reads. "Well, we hear you; the wait is over! Like you, we see all the madness going on in the world from terrorism to the economic downturn, to the slew of police shootings, and brutality incidents."
"Our intent is not to fan the flames and divide, but to put out the fire, and unite," it further states. "But don’t get it twisted, we’re still not kissing no ass to be accepted. The new album is entitled, Habeas Corpus, and like past Geto Boys albums, no topic will be off limits."
The Geto Boys' Habeas Corpus album is scheduled for release in March 2016. This would the group's 11th album and their first since their 2005 effort, The Foundation.
