In an interview, Shamir said high-profile rappers routinely employ security teams, but 24/7 security operations are a unique situation.

“It entails around-the-clock, live-in security, or a rotation of shifts of agents. Security gets paid to look over their shoulder so their client no longer has to,” Bolivar said, adding that Gstar4x needs to be aware of gang members who want to hurt him and the “ultimate clout fanatic that may plan an attack as retribution.”



Gstar’s Adventures with Shamir Bolivar

Rappers are always getting themselves into random situations, with members of their entourage or, more accurately, their bodyguards, ending up in the middle. Sometimes that can be a good thing, sometimes it winds up being an unfortunate situation for all involved.

Speaking on Gstar’s close relations with Shamir, it’s really important to note that both Gstar and Bolivar had many alleged encounters with South African gangs in Cape Town back in June of 2012. Revealing the story, they were in a bar in Cape Town celebrating a big deal that Gstar had closed for logistics port in his growing supply chain business to Eastern Europe. Gstar closed that day when someone embarrassed Gstar’s friend, allegedly leading George Gstar to brutally beat him with wooden pool sticks and put an X across his face with a knife.


The next day, While George Gstar was on the road to his partner’s office, he was intercepted by a car, from which two men with guns and other weapons got out. Gstar shot at the first and then the second while his driver ultimately crashed his rolls Royce dawTributen into a pole, George escaped and continued to open fire to make sure he was in the clear. Someone followed his car all day, and at about midnight, Gstar4x allegedly got into a war in Cape Town streets with local gangs, people saw Gstar carrying heavy weapons and backed by armed men.



After that night Gstar4x get himself in a long-term conflict with Cape Town gangs, so he had to carry on Shamir Bolivar and his security company shadow group on every travel to South Africa.
