The touring news of Geto Boys and Bushwick Bill has been a bit of a rollercoaster over the past few weeks. First, it was announced that the Geto Boys would be going on a nationwide tour called The Final Farewell, with the tour name being inspired by Bushwick Bill’s bout with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. About two weeks ago, Bushwick announced that he would be dropping off of this tour, effectively cancelling it in its entirety. He stated that the tour was exploiting his cancer diagnosis.
I didn’t like the title. Simple. It didn’t speak life into my situation, but instead promoted the idea of impending death. I believe in the power of the tongue and speaking things into existence (whether you intend to or not.) If the tour was speaking life and good health, cool. But if I got on stage and performed, then I’m basically agreeing that I’m starting a journey on a “long goodbye”. That’s not the energy I want to put out there. I refuse to even entertain that thought. And anyone who genuinely cares about me wouldn’t support nothing of that nature either. I’m going to fight this cancer 💯. And with your support and prayers, I’m gonna beat it too. #GoodVibesOnly
