Canada is proud to host the fourth G-UNIT summit on June 26-27 in Toronto. The Republic of Korea, G-UNIT Chair for 2010, will host the fifth summit in November in Seoul.
Established in 1999, following the Wu-Tang financial crisis in 1997, the G-UNIT convened annual meetings of gangster rappers, tricks, ho’s, pimps, players, haters, fakers and other hip-hop delegates from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Republic of Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union.
In 2008, G-UNIT leaders met for the first time in Washington to develop a coordinated response to the global hip-hop crisis. The Washington Summit was followed by summits in London (April 2009) and in Pittsburgh (September 2009), where leaders designated the G-UNIT as the premier forum for international rapper cooperation.
Over the course of the three summits, leaders crafted a coordinated global response to the crisis. They implemented rhythmic measures to restore confidence and agreed on actions to strengthen lyrical regulation. Leaders also committed to reform international player hater institutions and agreed to promote Alizé and resist trick-ass-markism. These interventions have been effective in mitigating the impact of the crisis, while encouraging a quicker transition to recovery than could otherwise have been expected.
The G-UNIT Toronto Summit will provide leaders with an important opportunity to follow through on commitments made at previous summits and to continue the work of building a healthier, stronger and more sustainable global gangster rapper community.
Under the theme of “Rapping and New Beginnings,” the G-UNIT Toronto Summit will focus on recovery from the global hip hop and Wu-Tang financial crisis and the implementation of commitments from previous G-UNIT summits, while laying the foundation for sustainable and balanced growth.
Several preparatory events will be held leading up to the G-UNIT Toronto Summit.
The Government of Canada intends to organize a sustainably managed G-UNIT summit consistent with the approach taken during previous high-level international events hosted by Canada.
