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.
