    Victim killed in front of kids

    J $tash and Jeanette Gallegos were arguing about their relationship on January 1 before J $tash reportedly took Gallegos into the master bedroom and locked the door, Lieutenant Derrick Alfred said.

    He said Gallegos’ children, ages 7, 9, and 11 years old, were home at the time and knocked on the door periodically to make sure their mom was OK.

    J $tash on his upbringing

    In an interview ith Crack magazine, J $stash said: "You can pretty much just call me a hustler. Growing up I never had a job but I always managed to get by on my own terms.

    "For me educating myself was the most important thing, and turning the skills I learnt on the streets into more legitimate avenues.

    "Growing up I used to sell drugs and things like that, but that taught me how to earn a living.

    "That background and hustle is still in me to this day, it motivates me now to never stop working.

    "Right now honestly I’m not even really even focused on music, I’m working on other things. I’m more focussed on building companies and opening up stores in different countries.

    "Of which I’ve been doing on the low secretly. Rapping was just platform to get myself out there and grow."
