Director Greg Roman in attendance! A tribute to Bushwick Bill (1966-2019).
Censorship couldn't silence him, size couldn't limit him, and a bullet couldn't slow him down. BUSHWICK BILL: GETO BOY is a raw, cinematic documentary chronicling the life of one of the most notorious gangster rappers of all time.
He stood 4' 2" tall, had one eye, and was an integral part of the The Geto Boys' seminal album "We Can't Be Stopped," and their hit songs "My Mind Playing Tricks On Me" and "Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster." As a character study, the film reveals a more mature Richard Shaw (aka Bushwick Bill) reflecting on his highly controversial life, his rise to cult stardom, and the exploitation at the hands of record companies that left him broke, homeless, and even suicidal.
Take a once-in-a-lifetime journey as Bill recounts his most memorable triumphs and failures, both public and private. This film has taken on new meaning with the recent and untimely passing of Bushwick Bill.
