Bushwick Bill terrified a vice president’s wife into regulating song lyrics, released album art of himself bleeding on a gurney with a gunshot wound to the eye, and helped put Houston into the global hip-hop archipelago.

Cancer is one of those things that I hear about so much, I am almost immune to the word. Like I almost feel it doesn't have meaning anymore.

Sometimes it is a simple cold or in other cases, the treatment itself.

RIP though. Sad times.

You would think cancer wouldn't be a thing anymore considering there is talks of commercial space travel happening in the next 10 years.
