(AllHipHop News) Geto Boys member Bushwick Bill died on June 9. Just a few weeks prior to his passing, the rapper born Richard Stephen Shaw publicly revealed he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
Shaw's family, friends, and fans are currently mourning his death and celebrating his life in various ways. An Atlanta news team honored the late Rap-a-Lot Records artist on television during a local traffic report.
WSB-TV's Fred Blankenship and Mark Arum used lyrics from Geto Boys' songs in the telecast as a way to honor Bushwick Bill. Blankenship and Arum are the same newscasters that paid tribute to Prodigy, 2Pac, and Phife Dawg with lyrical eulogies in the past.
"Ah man, homie. That traffic's playing tricks on me," says Blankenship, referencing the classic 1991 Top 40 hit "Mind Playing Tricks on Me." Arum joined in by adding, "I-285's so tough, we triple teamed on 'em."
