The legendary rapper Bushwick Bill of the legendary Geto Boys, passed away and fans are still feeling the effects. However, there have been people trying to capitalize on his passing with phony GoFundMe campaigns.

The family has started the official GoFundMe campaign with the hopes of raising $100K to help his family with expenses as well as his children. They wrote, “This is the official fund established in honor of the late Richard Shaw, better known as Bushwick Bill. This was created in response to the hundreds of people that have reached out and inquired about how they can help, as well as to combat the recent fake/unauthorized memorial events being promoted and claiming to donate proceeds to the family. ALL donations will be contributed toward his family’s expenses, as well as carry out Bill’s final wish that his 4 kids are financially taken care of. Whether you’re donating or sharing this page, we thank you, and we appreciate your support.”
