Bushwick Bill, a founding member of the Geto Boys, recently revealed that he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. 

Bill reportedly was informed of his diagnosis back in February, according to TMZ.

Bushwick Bill had gone to the doctor regarding a mass on his pancreas that was initially believed to be benign.

Ever since then, Bill has been undergoing intensive chemotherapy. He told TMZ that it’s still too early to tell how his body will react to the chemotherapy.

Bushwick Bill had been secretive about his diagnosis until now. He previously only told some of his closest relatives, but now he’s ready to share the news with the public.

“I feel like keeping it to myself is not really helping nobody,” Bushwick told TMZ. “And it’s not like I’m afraid of dying because if anyone knows anything about me from ‘Ever so Clear,’ I died and came back already on June 19, 1991. So I know what it’s like already on the other side. So that’s not what it’s really about. It’s about life and loving life and being there for family… I just want people to be aware so that when they set dreams and goals, they’re healthy enough to fulfill it and live.”
