Rewind - The Source February 1992 issue featuring The Geto Boys



Jo has come through for us again. Earlier this week, he sent me this issue just as I was going through that Wordpress madness. This is yet another issue that was stolen from me in college and there are some interesting articles in this issue. I remember being very East Coast biased during this time and I was heavily into BDP, Lord Finesse, and Tribe when this issue came out. The Geto Boys were one of the few non-East Coast groups that I was listening to and that was mainly because I always enjoyed Willie D’s straight forward approach on the mic. He wasn’t a lyrical beast but you always knew exactly what was on his mind. Honesty is truly missing in hip-hop today.


And don’t forget to send a little thank you to Jo in the comment section for scanning this. He’s busy scanning a few more ‘91/’92 issues that will be posted here as well.


Record Report:


Juice OST (4 broken records)

Lord FinesseReturn of the Funky Man (3.5 broken records)

Sir Mix-A-LotMack Daddy (3 broken records)

The Future SoundThe Whole Shabang (3.5 broken records)

Chi AliThe Fabulous Chi Ali (3 broken records)

  1. A big big THANK YOU to Jo for putting in all the work on this one! I'm so happy I got a first class ticket to enjoy this wonderful blog, so thank you to you too, Vincent.

    I never read the Source over here, since a while I've noticed them in the news stands but they don't sell them from the nineties :-)

  5. Thanks for the throwback edition. Maybe it's the D.I.T.C. fan in me but Lord Finesse deserved 4 records for ROTFM.

  23. Much thanks for this mag! After reading the first few articles it's easy to see they were definitely much more on the knowledge tip back then. I was looking at the most recent Source mag out now and I know everyone says this BUT IT'S JUST NOT THE SAME! Oh well, looking forward to reading the Geto Boys article. They're one of my all time favourite groups.
