Geto Boys’ Bushwick Bill Speaks On Dying & Coming Back To Life [VIDEO]
Nardwuar today brings us another humorous episode featuring Bushwick Bill of the Geto Boys. In it we find out the rapper once died and came back to life.
The self-proclaimed breakdancing genius, who was into graffiti, b-boying and deejaying before he ever found out he could rap, admits he started out as a dancer in New York at the “Swatch Watch” competition (whatever that is). After explaining the covers on a few vintage vinyls, the Jamaican MC reveals he’s the only person in the world with both a birth and death certificate.
“Yeaaa. When I lost my eye, I died in June 19, 1991 at approximately 4:35. And I didn’t come to [life] ’til [I was] in the morgue after 7 o’clock.
Once the pint-sized lyricist resurrected, he urinated on the cop that was standing beside his casket. Because who doesn’t have to use the bathroom after a good night’s rest, am I right?
