Bushwick Bill did pass away yesterday, although his death came about eight hours after his Geto Boys bro Scarface RIPed him on Instagram.

Bill was suffering from Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, so it wasn't a big surprise.

The Hip Hop world mourned the 52-year old on social media.

Bushwick Bill wasn’t supposed to be a star according to our society. He defied every odd and became an institution. Along with Face and Willie D, he became the voice of a generation. The Geto Boys put the realities of the violence and mental illness we deal with in the Hood right in our faces long before we started saying “woke.” Who else would get shot in the eye and then say “let’s do the album cover photo shoot right now!” Rest in power to Kingston Jamaica born, Bushwick Brooklyn representing, Houston Texas raised, Bushwick Bill. A legend.
