Bushwick Bill Passes Away From Cancer at Age 52

Bushwick Bill lost his battle with cancer over the weekend, and passed away at 9:35 last night with his son and daughter by his side. He was 52. The Jamaican-born MC grew up in Brooklyn, and a made a name for himself in Houston as one third of the Geto Boys. His unique cadence made his lyrics some of the most quotable of all time, and fueled many a skate season over the past three decades. Bill was also known to pop up at skate events, and became friends with many pros and industry personalities. Our condolences go out to his friends and family.
