Willie D

Originally a member of Houston horror-rappers the Geto Boys, Willie D (born William Dennis) released his first solo album, Controversy, in 1989. Willie parted ways with the Geto Boys in 1992, but shock tactics of his former group are in full force on "F--- Rodney King" from his second album, I'm Goin out Lika Soldier. Willie's next album, 1994's Play Witcha Mama, featured a guest spot from Ice Cube on the title track. A Geto Boys reunion in 1996 titled The Resurrection resuscitated the career of the group, but Willie D wasn't heard from again until 2000 with Loved by Few, Hated by Many -- which may have referred to the disproportionate slant against Willie among rap fans. The suggestive title was changed in 2001 when it was re-released as Relentless. Despite near-universal disregard for his talents, Willie D returned with yet another album in 2003, Unbreakable.
