  1. God bless ๐Ÿ‘‘๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ
    I can’t wait to see Willie D’s coverage on this

    • ed gein Mf we already know about Willie D and Bushwick. You think you are educating mfs? STFU! Phantom of The Rapra is the best Bushwick album ever. That was this ish in 1995 you stupid mf bih. It doesnt matter if mfs will buy his new ish. That old ish will sell!

  2. Prayers ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป My friend just got diagnosed with the same thing ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    • Im so srry ๐Ÿ˜ขI hope they have love and support my brother died of Pancreatic cancer..God’s Kingdom will wipe away all sickness and death and heartache we all face very soon im going through health issues myself we all need relief..prayers for you my friend๐Ÿ’—

    • Binary-Technique Cancer can even just happen to healthy people. I had a customer several years ago who was a healthy young woman who only ate organic and exercised and she got a cancerous tumor on her head. She was married with a 3 year old. I hope she survived. I’ve heard of non smokers getting lung cancer

    • Same here bro. Not a good year so far for the hip hop industry. Hope it turns around and gets better

  3. Wow. Ghetto Boyz was the 1st rap group I ever wrote down every lyric to every song for off an album. As a 2nd grader on my cassette tape recorder. My parents had no clue! Damn ๐Ÿ˜‘

  4. Geto Boys one of the greatest groups of all-time top four but my number one group keep your head up Bushwick we all behind you and hope you can make this you got love behind you

    • Yโ€™all act like yโ€™all got stage 4 cancer they way people rude in the comments. Give your blessings and stfu, no one cares what yโ€™all think he can beat or not. Thatโ€™s people problem smh.

    • +Hershi Monroe yes ma’am it does allot. Remember prayers (plural)are stronger than one.

    • +African Girl he tried to kill hisself shot himself in the eye but came back. If im not mistaken he made his girlfriend at the time shoot him. Can’t remember exactly

  5. Get your bodyโ€™s ph to alkaline and CBD oil in high doses! You can beat this!

    • +Peyton Bell Sorry tard but we live in reality, not fucking lala-land

    • So sad how many of us can say the same. My heart goes out to you all. Lost my dad to it Oct ’18 as well. I tried to talk him into at least trying CBD but he refused.

    • I’ve probably researched it more than you have. I’m not saying it’s totally ineffective, I’m saying it’s not as magical as you believe it to be. I can agree with trying anything if you’re going to die anyway but don’t go into it expected a miracle recovery because 99% of the time it isn’t going to work. Sorry to rain on your parade.

  6. Wow! What memories he brings back ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I wish him well.

  7. Aw man.. I pray for him man another very important man in hip hop

  8. Just for some people wondering, this is really one of the worse types of cancer and in the furthest stages too… tbh, it is going to take a miracle for him to survive but people have beat stage 4 pancreatic cancer just not many.. as it does have a pretty low survival rate something like 3 – 5% and this is the exact same disease Alex Trebek from Jeopardy is fighting right now too in the same stage (4). If you look it up on YouTube there is even a few survivor stories of people beating this even at stage 4 but then it can still return too either way sending love and prayers to both Bushwick Bill & Alex Trebek. One of my first rap CD’s i ever owned was Geto Boys that was way back in 1993 I know a lot of people also may not of heard of Bushwick Bill but believe me he is very well respected in the hip-hop community and “Geto Boys” are on parr with NWA, Public Enemy, Bone Thugs, Wu Tang, just my opinion. ๐Ÿ™

    • Bushwick is a real one. Prayers for your health and also that your finish your projects your working on. God bless ya

    • I lost my sister to pancreatic cancer and her doctor said the same thing. She was stage 4 when hers was found also. Hers attacked her stomach and her symptoms mimicked depression.

    • Facts. My mom was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer in September 2015. It took her from us five months later, February 2016. The oncologist told us that it’s so aggressive that even with the most aggressive treatment they could throw at it, it would take a miracle to shrink the tumor. And even then it would likely be back within 2 years. Cancer sucks.

  9. He real asf… When he was in Cleveland.. He was outside in the front just chilling with everyone,, just talking & chilling….

    • What was he supposed to be doing flying or climbing walls WTF He’s human

  10. And Bushwick canโ€™t sleep…when everybody around me keeps falling six feet deep

  11. He’s so brave! Not sure he’ll be able to finish all his projects with stageIV pancreatic Ca. God give him & family comfort & peace!๐Ÿ•Š

    • Yeah my brother has stage 4 and he went so quick but any projects he finishes ill def support it hurts to see the pain a loved one goes through from this..

    • I SEE BOTH SIDES how is he brave? Itโ€™s not like he chose to have cancer

  12. sitting in my 4 corner room…..staring at candles!!! My mind is playin tricks on me. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  13. Keep praying honey I’m praying for you too ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡

  14. I love how positive he is about the situation. Prayers to him and his family.
