I can’t let the cat out the bag, but the one thing I can say is that I’m
very satisfied with it," Willie D. told AllHipHop.com. "The Geto Boys
is essentially a business relationship. Aint no sense in getting out here and
faking the s**t. One thing I cant stand it when mother f***ers get out here
and say, 'Yeah, everything is beautiful and we ain’t gonna break up.'
And they know that they have already split up. They lying to try and protect
their image, their careers. They already might shoot videos with new members

them are going to fail and lose all that they have. You gotta be a dumb mother
