Produced by Scarface. Album We Can’t Be Stopped. Mind Playing Tricks on Me Lyrics. I sit alone in my four-cornered room Starin' at candles Oh, that shit is on? Let me drop some shit like this here, real smooth. This year Halloween fell on a weekend Me and Geto Boys are trick-or-treatin' Robbin' little kids for bags 'Til a law man got behind our ass So we speeded up the pace Took a look back and he was right before our face He'd be in for a squabble, no doubt So I swung and hit. the nigga in his mouth He was goin' down we figured But this wasn't no ordinary nigga He stood about six or seven feet Now that's the nigga I be seein' in my sleep So we triple-teamed on him Droppin' them motherfuckin' B's on him The more I swung,.

when your mind is playing tricks on you. Verse two: willie d. I make big money, I drive big cars Everybody know me, it's like I'm a movie star But late at night, somethin ain't right I feel I'm being tailed by the same sucker's head lights Is it that fool that I ran off the block Or is it that nigga last week that I shot Or is it. the one I beat for five thousand dollars Thought he had 'caine but it was gold medal flour Reach under my seat, grabbed my popper for the suckers Ain't no use to be lying, I was scareder than a motherfucker But they're laughing.
The Geto Boys Mind Playing Tricks On Me may be the greatest rap record of all time. An anthem of pain and anguish for the ages, Bushwick Bill, Scarface, and Willie D’s portrait of mental illness over a haunting Isaac Hayes loop is equal parts beautiful and disturbing. Utilizing the sample-as-chorus technique that Scarface perfected on several of his early records, Mind Playing Tricks showcased delivery, lyrics, and production that were all years ahead of their time. Before appearing on The Geto Boys sophomore album We Can’t Be Stopped and gaining the group national attention, the song started out as a record for Scarface’s solo debut Mr. Scarface is Back. I gave it to a buddy of mine named Lil’ Silver, and he died.
Geto Boys managed one more minor hit, the "Six Feet Deep" in 1993. Scarface was the group's leader and became a successful solo artist and record company executive, heading Def Jam South. Bushwick Bill, who is a dwarf, is best known for being shot in the eye after a drunken altercation with his 17-year-old girlfriend. A photo of a bloodied Bushwick after the incident appears on the cover of the We Can't Be Stopped album. The Geto Boys were very real. They were formed by 22-year-old James "Li'l J" Smith, who wanted a group that would represent the violent. Geto Boys returned to Rap-a-Lot to release the album, which benefited from the publicity and helped make this song a hit. More songs from Geto Boys. More songs about being paranoid. More songs about insanity.
