CHOWTIME REMEMBERS THE LEGENDARY BUSHWICK BILL

Houston rapper Bushwick Bill, a founding member of the pioneering rap crew Geto Boys, died on Sunday evening in Colorado, his publicist, Dawn P., confirmed with NPR. A cause was not given pending a medical examination; the rapper was diagnosed earlier this year with pancreatic cancer. He was 52 years old. 

Known for his brash persona and performative storytelling, Bill's unhinged, engaging bars on Geto Boys classics like "F*** a War," "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" and "Mind of a Lunatic" were central to the group carving out its place as a pioneering Southern rap unit in the late '80s and early '90s. While Scarface was hailed as the lyricist of the group, Bushwick Bill's appeal lied in his erratic, say-anything verses. In hip-hop's Golden Era, Geto Boys is credited with putting Houston on the map by pioneering horrorcore — a rap subgenre rooted in nightmarish imagery, physical abuse and psychological horror. Many of rap's current stars, from Jeezy and Lil Wayne to Juice WRLD and 21 Savage, have cited Geto Boys as an influence.
