A publicist for rapper Bushwick Bill says the founder of the iconic Houston rap group the Geto Boys has died.
Sources say that the 52-year-old was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in February. He had been planning to go on tour around the time he was hospitalized.

The rapper had only told his close friends and family about his cancer battle; he had not yet told his fellow Geto Boys Willie D and Scarface.
“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,” Bushwick Bill said, referring to the incident where he accidentally shot himself in the eye.
