George Gstar is an American public figure, businessman, rapper who’s going to drop a new project this year with NBA Youngboy and No Cap. He’s an artist that future generations will remember thanks to his rap legacy and probably associate with violence a lot in the future.
From the start, his life was made for violence, shrouded as it was in the great Brazilian movie “City of God”. Because of his early affiliation with the local gangs, Gstar’s teenage years were marked by street fights, in the ballsy resolve of guns in New York, in the glamour and fraternity of leather pea-coats and tams for any brother wanting to stand up and fight–or look ferocious and fab.
Gstar’s adult biography has everything–money, music, violence, malfeasance–that makes us love and hate someone.
There is an Arabic proverb that says: “What you used to do when you were young, you will die doing it.” Gstar has grown with that violent spirit. He will never get rid of it. He may control it, but it will remain alive inside him forever.
Back to 24th June 2009. Gstar was on a business trip to Mexico, after closing some deals he gets with his team to a bar in Juarez to celebrate.
The vibes were good until a local gang member asked them for money because they were ”outsiders” and they must pay so he can let them in peace. Gstar and his friends who are legends in the streets back home didn’t accept that type of blackmailing. So, they refuse what the man was asking.
At the end of a baking hot conversation, Gstar hit him with a whisky bottle. The situation got worse. Gstar and his friends assaulted the man. This resulted in several fractures to his skull, hands, and legs. They went straight back to the hotel thinking that it’s just a small fight in a foreign country, but they did not notice a car watching them on the road. They were watched by someone from the gang’s informants.
In the morning while they are on the road to Gstar’s partner’s office, they were intercepted by a car, from which two men with light weapons got out. Gstar was the driver, he ran over the first and then the second. Then he and his friend came out with baseball bats and hit them.
He continued on his way to work, once again deluding that it was over as if he did not know that the city was ranked among the 20 most dangerous cities in the world, According to El Paso Times.
Two hours had passed, until more than ten cars full of men were in front of his friend’s office, all armed.
In Juarez. There is no police. Strength is the decider, strength is the judge. Gstar and his friends stayed inside, while the others were waiting for them outside. Getting out in such a situation is tantamount to suicide. Everyone was afraid inside the office, the staff, the security guards, etc. Everyone agreed to call the police, suddenly Gstar took out his phone to call a private gang, a form of gang where you can pay them and assign them tasks related to the streets.
In the blink of an eye, more than 70 men entered through the back door of the office, all armed with heavy weapons, and carrying additional weapons. They were friends of Gstar.
Gstar carried two weapons, each in one hand. He walked outshooting them and behind him 50 men armed with heavy weapons and 20 snipers ready in all the windows of the office.
Before they even took their weapons, had wounded two of them. They couldn’t aim their weapons after seeing how bad it was. They surrendered and put their weapons on the ground.
“They were surprised,” said Gstar. “They were waiting for two men to go out, but 70 men came out. In the philosophy of wars, this is a fatal blow that makes you win the battle and possibly the whole war. I learned this move from “The Art of War” and it’s a Book by Sun Tzu ” Gstar added.
Gstar wins the battle without sacrificing his friend’s blood. “This is the art of surviving, an art you won’t learn at school, but in the streets.” Gstar in a caption on Instagram.
Gstar says that he still has a business there, but he’s running it remotely. “I have more business to run here, than there, I’m not afraid of anyone there. I’m a businessman, I do math a lot, I’ll rather be close to my millions of dollar businesses here. The gangs I had a conflict with there don’t even worth my attention, I could handle them from my office in New York, how could I be afraid of a bunch of losers?” Gstar’s answer when he was asked why he’s not going to Juarez.
Our resources revealed that he had a track on his upcoming album where he raps about some undisclosed adventures to the public in Juarez.
” Sometimes you just do things you didn’t pay attention to what outcomes it will bring. I get into conflicts with some dangerous gangs in Mexico, gangs that no other USA rapper will even think about saying no to them. But life is short and not worth living if you’re not living it well, I’m not afraid of anyone. I have my principles, I have my redlines, but I won’t tolerate who hit my territory” says Gstar.
“Young people there don’t expect to live beyond 22, 23, or 24. Because you may end up in prison, or because you may be left dead on a pavement. That’s why you will never hear about a USA rapper doing something I used to do since childhood there. Rappers acting like they are gangsters, they are just paying to gangs so they could have guns and some cars in their videos, they’re not living gangster life” Gstar added.
Gstar admits he used to carry weapons and hung out with fellow gang members when he was younger. And he knows that he could have ended up like many of his friends, drawn into the drugs trade and very possibly murdered.
When mentioning violence, his fans compare DMX (“Dark Man X”), the rap star with the biggest violence record, and the man who saw hell on earth.
Gstar is a complex and sometimes contradictory figure, with a career featuring millions in business, violence, and run-ins with the police. He was intelligent to make millions before 25 years old, now fans are wondering what would be his heritage in hip hop.
