Da Good Da Bad & Da Ugly is the sixth studio album by the Houston hip hop group the Geto Boys, released in late 1998 on Rap-A-Lot/Virgin Records. Following the short-lived reunion of the group's three core members, Scarface, Willie D and Bushwick Bill, for 1996's acclaimed The Resurrection album, Bushwick left to pursue a solo career, leaving the group as a duo for the first time. Unlike past Geto Boys albums, this one has a guest rapper on nearly every track. Most guest appearances were provided by the group's Rap-A-Lot record mates, including DMG, Yukmouth, Tela, Devin the Dude, Outlawz and Ghetto Twiinz. Following the release of Da Good Da Bad & Da Ugly, the group split up for solo careers, until returning over six years later with the reunion album The Foundation.
