(AllHipHop News) Bushwick Bill has died. He was 52.
Born Richard Shaw, the rapper had been suffering from stage 4 pancreatic cancer, which he revealed he had back in February.
Geto Boys group members Scarface and Willie D. erroneously broke the news Sunday on Instagram, which lead to a furor of misinformation.
Bushwick Bill's family immediately responded that he was still "fighting," even though family members were summoned to the hospital.
“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 told TMZ.
AllHipHop sends deep condolences to the family of Bushwick Bill.
