Bushwick Bill May Face Deportation
Yesterday (July 15), Geto Boys member Bushwick Bill was in Atlanta Immigration Court, possibly facing deportation.
In the last few weeks, there have been rumblings about Bill, who was born Richard Shaw, being in trouble with the law. He did not show up at last month’s VH1 Hip-Hop Honors, where the South was being recognized and Bill was slated to perform.
Bill, a native of Jamaica, grew up in Brooklyn before moving to Texas and becoming a member of the seminal Houston group Geto Boys, along with Scarface and Willie D.
XXL reached out to Bill’s manager for comment but as of press time were unable to contact him.—Adam Fleischer
