The Geto Boys’ association with controversy was far from over, though: hip-hop groups were a hot topic for moral-minded politicians during the early 1990s, and several leaders used the Geto Boys as an example to decry the state of modern pop-oriented music. The fires were fanned in 1991 with the release of the group’s third proper LP, We Can’t Be Stopped. Before the release of the album, Bushwick Bill had lost an eye in a shooting incident with his girlfriend, and the cover featured Willie D. and Scarface wheeling Bushwick Bill into an emergency room, with a prominent shot of the damaged eye. Inside the album, proceedings were among the most extreme in the history of American recorded music. Obviously, radio airplay was non-existent, but We Can’t Be Stopped was still certified platinum by the RIAA in early 1992—thanks to the underground hit “Mind Playing Tricks on Me,” one of the most effective inner-city vignettes in hip-hop history.

By 1993, all three members had begun solo careers, although Willie D. was the only one completely separated from the band, citing artistic differences. Scarface and Bushwick Bill continued with new member Big Mike, releasing Uncut Dope in 1993 and Til Death Due Us Part the following year but split late in 1994. Just one year later, Willie D. returned to the fold for another Geto Boys release, The Resurrection, which showed the group in fine form. Now it was Bushwick Bill’s turn to leave the group. DMG took his place for 1998’s Da Good Da Bad & Da Ugly but returned for the group’s 2005 reunion album, The Foundation.
