As many of you are aware, I was involved in an incident last night. While supporting another band, at their show, I was involved in an altercation with some unknown people. While defending myself, I was stabbed. I was hospitalized and have been released. I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love. I am recovering and will be back soon. My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable. I want to thank all of my fans, followers and friends for their inquiries, well wishes, prayers and love. I love you all back and I’m always going to love my city. -G FYI – I lost my phone and will get my new one tomorrow. Much love Anwan Big G Glover
