Geto Boys member Bushwick Bill passed away on Sunday after battling stage four pancreatic cancer.
There was some confusion on Sunday as several outlets had reported that the Houston legend had passed, but his publicist was forced to release a statement to say that he was still with us and reports that he had died early Sunday morning were false and that he was “still alive and fighting cancer” in a hospital.
But late Sunday night, Bushwick Bill's publicist, Dawn P., confirmed to Rolling Stone that he had passed:
“Bushwick Bill passed away peacefully this evening at 9:35 p.m. He was surrounded by his immediate family,” she told RS. “There were incorrect previous reports that he had passed away this morning. We are looking into doing a public memorial at a later date. His family appreciates all of the prayers and support and are asking for privacy at this time.” She also shared the news on Instagram.
Our condolences go out to his family.
