RIP Bushwick Bill (1966-2019)

A few days ago, I had heard some reports that Bushwick Bill of Geto Boys fame had died. However, for the rest of the day, it had been stated that he was fighting for his life. Then came the announcement that he had left this world for good.

I also remember having read that he had been suffering from Stage 4 pancreatic cancer since this past February. When I read about this, I was hoping that he would beat the cancer.

It was a shock to hear about this man’s passing. I mostly remember him as the diminutive member of Geto Boys. Hell, I even remember his appearance in the video for “Dre Day” from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. He even had some great verses in a lot of classics from Geto Boys. However, I haven’t really heard much of his solo stuff. From what I also had read, he also turned his life around much later and did a Christian rap album, which was his last solo album to date. Maybe one day I might have to look into checking out and covering his solo work.

REST IN PEACE
