Rapper George “G” Yamazawa’s sister has been viciously attacked leaving her with a fractured skull. The Japanese American rapper, who came into the spotlight with his hit song “North Cack”, posted on his Instagram a picture of his sister in the hospital.
He wrote, “yesterday morning my sister was assaulted by a random stranger and was sent to the hospital with a fractured skull. fortunately there was no internal bleeding and she was discharged with ten stitches last night. she’s in high spirits. huge thank you to the friends and family who sent recovery vibes her way.
my sister has always been a protective force for me. my growing appreciation and respect for women began with her warmth and wrath. she gave me ruff ryders ryde or die volume one for my 10th birthday lol. she wore a traditional kimono to her senior prom and wedding. she teaches ESL to refugee students at a community college. she’s the mother of a child with special needs. she’s a fucking beast. I love you Em see you soon 😩”
Luckily she’ll be okay, needing only stitches, but still, the picture is hard to look at. She must be going through a lot of mental anguish and fear. Hoping and wishing she recovers fully because she seems like such an awesome person. She teaches ESL to refugees and helped G Yamazawa become the man he is today.
G Yamazawa has been someone I’ve been following since I heard “North Cack”.
He just radiates positivity and it’s been nice to see him grow as an artist and a person. G Yamazawa got his start in poetry and has won several awards. He transitioned into rap as a full-time career and he’s done an amazing job balancing being Asian in a black art form. In his song 1990, he raps, “It’s black art, black culture, black music. It’s heavily influenced all these white, brown and yellow faces.”
Every song he puts out seems so genuine in capturing who he is and his experiences in being Asian American. So check out his music and everyone send some positive vibes to his sister.
