Grip It! On That Other Level

Grip It! On That Other Level is the second album by Houston hip hop group the Geto Boys, then known as the Ghetto Boys. Following the disappointing results of the group's first album, Making Trouble, Rap-A-Lot Records replaced MC's Jukebox and Johnny C with Scarface and Willie D, who joined previous members Bushwick Bill and DJ Ready Red. Grip It was considered the group's breakout album, and caught the attention of super-producer Rick Rubin, who remixed the album's tracks for the group's 1990 album The Geto Boys. Grip It includes two tracks not remixed for The Geto Boys, "Seek & Destroy" and "No Sellout". The album features the single "Do it Like a G.O.", as well as other popular tracks like "Mind of a Lunatic", "Size Ain't Shit" and "Gangsta of Love".

The album caused controversy because of its extreme violence and misogyny. Attention increased with the release of the remixed The Geto Boys album, which saw activist groups unsuccessfully trying to ban the album.

"Do it Like a G.O." was also released on the Willie D album Controversy.

In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source magazine's 100 Best Rap Albums.
