Bill died Sunday night after going into a medically induced coma.

Update 06/09/2019 11:23pm – According to sources, Bushwick Bill has passed away after being in a medically induced coma.  Early this morning, Geto Boys members Willie D and Scarface reported that Bill had passed away, which was quickly disputed by Bushwick Bill’s family.  Bill’s daughter took to social media to announce that Bill was still alive but “fighting for his life”.  Later today, Bill’s organs began to shut down and he passed away. (VLAD TV)

A few hours prior, Bushwick’s family issued a statement shutting down initial death reports.

10:05 AM PT — Bill’s daughter says her father is “fighting for his life” and needs prayers and support. She also hinted at some friction between Bill and unnamed industry people. She said on IG, “Certain people have been so quick to write him off as dead so they can capitalize off it.” She stressed, “There is no Geto Boys without Bushwick Bill.” 8:55 AM PT — Bill’s publicist tells TMZ he is “still alive and fighting cancer” in a hospital. She says she spoke to hospital staff to confirm, and says some of Bill’s family members are by his hospital bedside right now. Others are on their way. (TMZ)

Massive 2008 Fire at Universal Studios Reportedly Damaged Master Recordings by Tupac, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige and More

A lot of priceless material from some of the most influential artists of the last decade was reportedly burned in a fire that at Universal Studios Hollywood’s archive building on June 1, 2008.

The New York Times reports that the master recordings from Eminem, 50 Cent and Tupac Shakur were among some of the materials burned in the fire. If this report is factual, the masters for every Eminem album from The Slim Shady LP (1999) to Encore (2004) is gone forever. This goes for every single album record by Pac and Fifty up to that point.

Other master recordings reportedly lost in the flames include offerings from Bobby (Blue) Bland, B.B. King, Ike Turner, the Four Tops, Quincy Jones, Burt Bacharach, Joan Baez, Neil Diamond, the Police, Sting, George Strait, Steve Earle, R.E.M., Janet Jackson, Eric B. and Rakim, New Edition, Bobby Brown, Guns N’ Roses, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Sonic Youth, No Doubt, Nine Inch Nails, Snoop Dogg, Nirvana and many more.

The Times clearly put a lot of effort into recovering this information but a rep for UMG told Variety that the publication’s report has “numerous inaccuracies, misleading statements, contradictions and fundamental misunderstandings of the scope of the incident and affected assets.”

The statement also says, “the tens of thousands of back catalog recordings that we have already issued in recent years – including master-quality, high-resolution, audiophile versions of many recordings that the story claims were ‘destroyed.’”

Royce 5’9 & Kxng Crooked Discuss Who Was Better On Renegade: JAY-Z Or Eminem (Video)

Kxng Crooked is the latest respected Hip-Hop lyricist to segue into driving dialogue in the music media. Recently, the Long Beach, California lyricist also known as Crooked I launched Crook’s Corner. Taking a concept from his hashtag of longstanding Hip-Hop discussions on social media with peers and fans, the MC has partnered with HipHopDX to host guests in conversations about Rap music and culture. Following a recent appearance by Tech N9ne, the C.O.B. O.G. welcomes his Slaughterhouse co-founder Royce 5’9 to the Corner. With the full episode arriving Saturday (June 1), a segment released previewing the discussion. “The most debated song, in my opinion, in Hip-Hop history, is ‘Renegade,'” Crooked I begins, referring to JAY-Z and Eminem’s 2001 Blueprint collaboration, embedded below. “That is a split down the middle: ‘JAY-Z had the best verse’ [versus] ‘Em’ washed JAY-Z on his own sh*t’ debate. That argument goes on forever.” Royce 5’9’s Most Powerful Song Of His Career Is A Call For Solidarity & Pride Crook’ points out that Royce 5’9 was originally on “Renegade,” before JAY-Z. That version of the Eminem-produced song is embedded below. “I was signed to Sony/Columbia [Records], and Marshall was executive producing my album. We were gonna do two songs that were gonna make the album.” The other song, “Rock City,” ended up on Royce’s debut LP of the same name, which eventually released independently in 2002. “Rock City” became a video single ahead of the album, even though both tracks had been recorded. “I just thought it was okay,” Royce recalls of “Renegade.” The track was made a few years removed from the pair’s Bad Meets Evil material in the late 1990s. “We had did so many songs together where we was just kind of rapping. I just thought it was okay, and it just one of them joints that was just kinda sitting.” Eminem called Royce some time later, expressing his desire to send the track to JAY-Z. “I’m such a fan of both. Jay is definitely one of those people that I definitely always wanted to see [Eminem] work with. So when he sent it to him, and he did it, that’s when it started sounding great to me,” Nickel Nine admits with a laugh. “I think what people are arguing is they’re arguing preference at that point. You’ve got two guys that do two different things, and they’re so good at what they do that they figured out a way to join the two worlds together. People who prefer JAY-Z’s content, what he talks about and the way that he approaches the beat, they’re always gonna say that he got the better verse—because they like his style of Rap better. But whether one is more lyrical than the other, like we said, it’s subjective.” Kxng Crooked Discusses The Times Hip-Hop Tried To Cancel Eminem & Defends Him At 2:50, Kxng Crooked asks Royce if he would like to “weigh in on that debate.” Nickel responds, “I don’t think it’s one of them kinda songs, man. I don’t think it’s one of those kinda songs ’cause it didn’t sound like they were trying to tear each other’s head off; they made a song. I mean, I prefer the way that Em’ attacked the beat a little bit better,” Royce admits. Crooked adds, “Yeah, his cadence was crazy on that.” Royce continues, “I’ve heard both of them go crazier, just on some super-lyrical sh*t.” Although 2018 saw the disbanding of Slaughterhouse, Royce, Kxng Crooked, and Joell Ortiz rapped together on the “Timberlan’d Up (Remix),” a free download supplement to Apollo Brown and Joell’s Mona Lisa album. Royce 5’9 Discusses His Relationship With J Dilla (Video) Notably, Royce 5’9 is currently producing a project from Kxng Crook’s proteges, Family Bvsiness (formerly Horseshoe Gang). Crooked confirmed the news during a recent and comprehensive sit-down with adam22 and the No Jumper Podcast. #BonusBeat: A playlist of JAY-Z and Eminem’s “Renegade” followed by the Royce 5’9 version:

Meek Mill Teases Project With JAY-Z and Eminem

Meek Mill is cooking up something and it involves JAY-Z and Eminem.

The Philadelphia rapper alluded that he was working with the two Hip Hop icons. “I’m making power moves wit jay & em #levels,” he tweeted.

The Dream Chasers head honcho has been apart of Roc Nation’s management since 2012. Additionally, Hov has been working closely with Meek on his legal issues. They’ve joined forces to launch the REFORM Alliance organization to advocate for prison reform. Plus, Jigga was featured on CHAMPIONSHIPS. So it won’t be left field if we hear that they’re working together.

However, Meek’s relationship with Em isn’t publicly solidified. Which has everyone wondering what could those three be up to? It can be a song or something non-music related. We’ll just have to play the waiting game at this point.

Ever since his release, Meek Mill has been making power moves of his own. He was awarded with his weekend in Philadelphia for all his work towards prison reform. “I want to thank the people here for the support because the support done mattered a lot,” Meek said while accepting the honor. “I’ve been in prison a few times for probation violation, but the one time that my city of Philadelphia showed me support was the one time I came out of prison, and I want to show the support back and do it for the people that actually stood up for me.”

50 Cent Calls Out “Lord Jerome” For Being An Eminem Hater

Brand Nubian Unsung - Lord Jamar

Source: TV ONE / TV One

50 Cent’s petty is infinite. He has officially jumped in the Lord Jamar and Eminem tofu beef.

As spotted on HipHopDX Fofty made it clear he has his mentor’s back even years later after their business relationship has dissolved. Curtis took to his Instagram to call out the Brand Nubian member for calling Slim Shady wack on a recent interview with Rapmatic. 

On Thursday, May 16 Fif posted an unflattering photo of the “Slow Down” rapper with the words “Clout chasing” written across it. His caption was especially rib-tickling as he dubbed him “Lord Jerome”. “Lord Jerome better sit his ass down, 🤨I thought you died already Ni***. Get the f*** outta here 🤔you ain’t Grand Puba anyway. I’m gonna need a bum ass nigga in one of my shows.I’ll be reaching out shortly. #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac”.

Jamar and Em’ have not been getting along since he said Blonde wonder will always be a guest of Hip-Hop because he is white. Slim eventually responded on Kamikaze which essentially gave the New Rochelle native a wider lane to crusade against him.

Video of the wack accusations below.
