With Bushwick Bill’s self-inflicted gunshot wound to the eye on the album cover and their uber-popular “Mind Playin’ Tricks On Me” dominating airwaves, Bill, Willie D, and Face’s most revered album helped re-define the term “hotter than July.”

The 14-track classic was certified platinum less than a year after its release, making Geto Boys a household name and allowing Brad Jordan to drop his debut album, Mr. Scarface Is Back.
