In 1991, Bushwick Bill of the multi-platinum rap group The Geto Boys, forced his girlfriend at the time to assist his suicide attempt, but, as a result, she merely shot him in the eye.
Luckily, Bushwick survived with one less eye and now he calls the experience a momentary lapse of reason.
Although it isnt exactly known what led to Houstons suicide attempt, Bushwick says struggling to get a foothold in the rap scene and financial problems with his mother led to his.
He says he was shocked to hear about the eye- gouging incident on the news, but adds its very hard to make money as an up-and-coming rapper and can get very lonely, especially if your career is taking off like Houstons was.
As he puts it, Its crowded at the bottom, but lonely at the top where you dont know who to trust.
