Geto Boys Rapper Bushwick Bill Is 'Fighting for His Life' Amid Pancreatic Cancer Battle, According to His Son

Bushwick Bill, a member of the legendary rap group the Geto Boys, is in the hospital battling pancreatic cancer.

According to TMZ, Bill’s son says his dad is “fighting for his life” and needs prayers and support. It had been misreported that Bill had already passed away, but that’s not the case.

TMZ broke the story … Bill was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in February. Just last month, he told us he was undergoing intensive chemotherapy, and had hoped to get back on the road.

Bushwick Bill, Scarface and Willie D became the Geto Boys in Houston back in 1988 and signed with J. Prince’s Rap-A-Lot Records. The group was instantly controversial for its graphic lyrics which made radio airplay almost impossible. Their 1991 album “Can’t Be Stopped” still went platinum, though, on the strength of classics like, “Mind Playing Tricks On Me.”

Just a few weeks ago, the rap trio was trying to put together a reunion, but it fell apart at the last minute.

Prayers up.
