After much speculation on the status of Geto Boys legend Bushwick Bill’s status, the rapper was confirmed by his rep to have passed away 9:35 pm last night.
Previously many were going to social media giving their condolences after rumors spread of the rapper passing that later was confirmed to not be true. The rapper’s daughter also hinted at some friction between Bill and unnamed industry people and stated on Instagram “Certain people have been so quick to write him off as dead so they can capitalize off it.”
Once Bill’s rep confirmed he was alive it sounded as if it was his final moments as his family and friends were gathering to come to his bedside. Unfortunately, it looks as though the rappers battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer took its toll with Bushwick peacefully passing away at 52 on Sunday (6/9/19).
According to TMZ his son Javon says Bushwick’s final words were “I Will Love You Forever.”
