A rep has confirmed that Bushwick Bill of The Geto Boys passed away last night. Bill, born Richard Shaw, passed away at 52 surrounded by his family in Houston, TX. He was suffering from pancreatic cancer and underwent intensive chemotherapy last month. The trio of Bushwick Bill, Scarface and Willie D were said to be planning a reunion.
Despite graphic lyrics that made radio airplay impossible, The Geto Boys 1991 album ‘Can’t Be Stopped’ went platinum. Honor Bill’s legecy by playing their iconic hit “My Mind Playing Tricks On Me.”
