Revealed: This Is What Killed Rap Legend Bushwick Bill

Bushwick Bill, a member of the veteran Houston rap trio Geto Boys, has died at the age of 52, his rep confirmed

Reports that the rapper had died began circulating early Sunday after fellow Geto Boy Scarface wrote in a pair of Instagram posts “RIP Bushwick Bill “You will be missed, big fella.” However, some of his relatives including his sister denied the death of the rapper.

The rapper, who was born Richard Shaw, revealed last month that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in February.

When revealing his illness earlier this year, Bill told TMZ, “I figure keeping it myself is not really helping nobody, and I’m not really afraid of dying because if anyone knows anything about me from [his 1992 song] ‘Ever So Clear,’ I died and came back already in June 1991, so I know what it’s like on the other side,” the rapper added, referring to an incident where he accidentally shot himself in the eye while tussling with his girlfriend over a gun.
