Bushwick Bill is dropping out of the Geto Boys reunion tour, because the promoters made it sound too morbid.

Bill revealed that he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer earlier this month, and he was going on tour to leave some money for his kids if he were to die. 

But the tour, that was supposed to start today, is called "The Beginning of a Long Goodbye: The Final Farewell," which Bill said makes it seem like his condition is being exploited. The tour is now cancelled due to Bill pulling out.

The rap legend is will instead go on his own tour called "Phuck Cancer," which starts on June 8 in Dallas. He'll be giving 10 percent of the proceeds to pancreatic cancer patients in each city that he stops in.

What do you think about the name of the cancelled farewell tour? Is it exploitive?
