Geto Boys co-founder Bushwick Bill has died. He was 52 years old.
The Jamaican-born rapper began his career with the Geto Boys as a dancer before he joined the group as a rapper. He’s known for showing up on the group’s 1991 album cover on a gurney after being shot in the eye.
Geto Boys influenced many in the rap game, including 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Eminem. The Rap God expressed his condolences via Twitter:
