Geto Boy's Announce final tour as a group !

Veteran MC, dancer, and producer Bushwick Bill has recently revealed that he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The Jamaican-American artist born Stephen Shaw joined Rap-A-Lot Records’ Geto Boys as a dancer some 30 plus years ago. Eventually he moved on to the role of rapper, it was then he became an integral part of the dynamic Houston, Texas crew’s most successful lineup alongside Scarface and Willie D, as well as late DJ/producer Ready Red. In total, Bill has released seven studio albums with the squad assembled by Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince, as well as solo material and compilations.

With Bill’s serious health condition, the Geto Boys have reunited for a series of tour dates. The trio will begin the just-announced The Beginning of a Long Goodbye: The Final Farewell Tour in just a few weeks time .According to a Pitchfork report part of the proceeds will support pancreatic cancer awareness.

See below for The trio's announced four dates for now:

05-24 Pontiac, MI – The Crofoot
05-25 Cleveland, OH – Agora Theatre
05-29 Washington, DC – Howard Theater
05-30 New York, NY – Sony Hall

Last week, Bill told fans, “I figure keeping it to myself is not really helping nobody. And, it’s not like I’m afraid of dying, because if anybody knows anything about me from ‘Ever So Clear,’ you know I died and came back already on June 19, 1991, so I know what it’s like on the other side, so that’s not what it’s about. It’s about life and loving life, and being there for family, and not just starting a dream or getting married or getting your first house and then finding out you’ve got pancreatic cancer, so you can’t even live out the rest of your dream. I just want people to be aware, so when they set dreams and goals, they’re healthy enough to fulfill and live.”

Our well wishes are with you and your family Bill !
