The reunion tour and possible new album of legendary Houston rap group The Geto Boys is on hold indefinitely as one of it’s members recuperates after a sudden trip to the hospital.

A rep for the group confirmed to Billboard magazine that Brad “Scarface” Jordan was taken to the hospital shortly after the group had finished a recent show in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Though those close to the situation are keeping pretty tight-lipped about the matter, some are speculating that  ‘Face’s health issues may stem from him being diagnosed with high blood pressure back in 2002.

Group member Willie D addressed fans on Face’s condition via their Kickstarter page:

“I am not at liberty to speak on his condition, and wouldn’t even if I was, as it is a private matter, but I will say that he is in good spirits, and sends his love to all who have supported him throughout his career, and personal life. Although I’m his bandmate, I’m also a Scarface fan, so I know it’s hard for you guys not having details, but I will try to keep you updated as much as I can without invading his privacy. Thanks and say a prayer for my homey!”

The Geto Boys are currently attempting to crowdfund their next album titled Habeas Corpus. So far the group has secured about $32,000 of their goal of $100,000.

The campaign comes to an end on July 15.

    some of these old groups are struggling because rap is not what it use to be its more geared towards 22 year olds hip hop to dance to music with a jamacian flare to it ., no more tupac and bigger or jayz real lyrics and a story behind the rap., its just a bunch of garabage , and to loose pimp c , fat pat , easy e ,and some of the best lyricist we lost a whole generation of rap .. no more existence.
