Geto Boys (originally spelled Ghetto Boys) is a rap group from Houston, Texas, consisting of Scarface, Willie D, and Bushwick Bill. The Geto Boys have earned notoriety for their lyrics which cover controversial topics such as misogyny, gore, psychotic experiences, and necrophilia. The Geto Boys broke new ground with their soulful southern sound (a precursor to the Dirty South style).[citation needed]
About.com ranked them #10 on its list of the 25 Best Rap Groups of All-Time, describing them as “southern rap pioneers who paved the way for future southern hip-hop acts.
