She stressed, "There is no Geto Boys without Bushwick Bill".

Earlier, uncorroborated reports that Bill had passed away Sunday morning were incorrect, the rapper's publicist Dawn P. told Rolling Stone.

Bushwick Bill, one third of iconic rap group the Geto Boys, is dead after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.

The family were previously forced to deny the star had passed away after false reports about his passing began circulating while he was still alive.

Bill, born Richard Shaw in Kingston, Jamaica, got his start with the band in 1986, first as a dancer, when he was known as Little Billy.

"I'm not really afraid of dying because if anyone knows anything about me from 'Ever So Clear, ' I died and came back already in June 1991, so I know what it's like on the other side", said Bill, during a recent interview.

Unfortunately, Bill shocked the world last month when he announced he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The hip-hop community is hurting right now.

In the span of a decade, from 1988 to 1998 - including a three-year hiatus, from '93 to '96 - Geto Boys released an impressive six albums. "The cover of Geto Boys" classic 1991 album, We Can't Be Stopped, infamously featured a graphic photo of Bill in the hospital after losing an eye after being shot by his girlfriend while he was wasted on PCP and everclear alcohol.

"I been keeping it to myself, but I'm getting ready to tell Scarface and Willie D", Bill explained to the outlet. Bill was also beloved by many metalheads and metal bands, including the Deftones, who invited him onstage at SXSW in 2016; you can see video of that performance below, as well as tributes from Ben Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicidal Tendencies) and Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind. "And I'm like, 'Does benign mean it could be cancer?' And they were like, 'It's just a mass with no goal.' So it was insane to find out that pancreatic cancer is undetected until it's in the fourth or fifth state".
