In 2006 I coined the phrase "G'Ville" for this Greenville NC area. Born and raised in the projects of NYC I noticed how many G's were here, and a lot of old G's (O.G's. original gangsters). If you know the Nicky Barne's story you know the surrounding area is where he and his family came from. Many soldiers and lieutenants of Nicky are left around in the Greenville (G'Ville) NC area, who will go unnamed here.
The real G's here do not go around like SC bragging and shooting Black on Black, trippin at clubs. They're very low key and for real and just do wha they do!
Name also given to the Greenville uptown area city proper. The area has coffee shops, dining and plenty of eclectic fashion shops reminiscent of NYC's East Village back in the late 60's heyday.
Where you originally from? I'm from The Bronx NYC, but now I live in G'Ville!
