Geto Boys’ Bushwick Bill Facing Deportation To Jamaica
Geto Boys rapper Bushwick Bill was in an Atlanta courtroom last week (July 16) for proceedings in an ongoing case where he could face deportation.
According to the ATL’s Creative Loafing, the rapper (real name: Richard Shaw) appeared in Atlanta Immigration Court and is facing deportation to Jamaica, where he was born in 1966 before moving to New York and later Houston.
Some reports indicate that Bill was arrested and charged with soliciting, but we could not confirm this as of press time.
The rapper rose to fame as a member of the pioneering southern hip-hop trio, the Geto Boys, who have released six albums throughout their careers as a group, and several other solo projects.
