GP Penitentiary Life – Wes Watson
Prison channels are blowing up on YouTube at the minute. I’ve already discussed them briefly before, but now the niche is maturing there are some new cats on the block. GP Penitentiary Life – Wes Watson is one of them. His message is important and his delivery authentic. Trust me when I say you need to start listening to him.
Although Wes’s image is perhaps that of a tough guy, you couldn’t ask for a more thoughtful individual. However, by his own admission, he hasn’t always been that way. The ruthless California prison system no doubt paid a big part in tge San Diego resident changing his ways for the better. Not because the system broke him, far from it, but he realised that he had so much more to offer the world.
You can also catch him on Instagram where he posts pics of his immaculate physic, but his aim isn’t to show off. Inspiring others is his ultimate goal and by the comments on his channel, you can see he’s hitting the bullseye.
Where’s Your Paperwork, Homie?
One thing that Wesley Watson is proud of is his paperwork, that’s why he won’t mind me showing the link here. It’s on the Internet anyway so I hope he doesn’t think I’m dry snitching!
You see California is unlike the East Coast of America, where different races mix with one another. Cali is racially segregated, not by the prison staff, but by the inmates themselves. Whites run with whites in what’s called a car and Blacks run in the Black and so on. Even if you aren’t racist you have no choice.
As soon as you land in a Californian prison yard the man with the keys – the shotcaller – will send one of his sidekicks to ask for your paperwork. If you’re a chomo (child molester) or something equally disgusting then your days are numbered. Obviously they don’t want those types dragging the car down. If you don’t move off the yard yourself you’ll get dealt with. That means a severe beating and possibly stabbed or slashed.
Robbery With Violence
Wes Watson started off selling weed as a teenager and soon established himself in the game. With big money comes problesm, that doesn’t matter whether you’re a legal business owner or a big-time weed dealer. Only thing is when someone owes you money legally you can take them to court. The dealer on the other hand doesn’t have that luxury so the only option is violence.
Sadly for Wes this ended up with him doing ten years in the penitentiary. Check out this video on how it all started. Such is Wes’s popularity he’s in big demand and I recently saw him on another podcast of Simon Rex. Again it’s well worth watching.
Dealing With Incarceration
One thing I can relate to totally is how Wes felt the need to change while he was incarcerated. When I was in prison myself, I did something similar. It’s been fifteen years since I was released and haven’t been back since, but it was where I actually learned how to write properly. Let me explain.
I’d been to college previously, but wasn’t a serious writer. Getting on the prison magazine is what started my love for writing in general. I got on great with the poet who come in once a week – Andy Croft was his name. He really helped me take my writing and grammar to the next level, something which I’m forever grateful.
You don’t realise how important good writing is, whether it’s for a job or just writing a professional-looking CV. Good writing can make the difference; it’s the equivelant of dressing like a boss, but showing your worth in words. Your first impression really counts and if you can’t go in person a letter or email is the next best thing.
Freedom is All in the Mind
The real point I want to make is that while incarcerated I got this supreme hunger. It was a desire stronger than I’d ever felt before. Perhaps it was because I’d started eating healthily and was at the gym seven days a week, but the sense of drive that I felt was better than any drug purely because it was natural. It felt good, even though I was incarcerated.
One thing I used to say to myself is that if you don’t want to go home you are free. Naturally if they gave me the keys I’d gladly walk out of the door, but in the position I was, it made sense to me to think that way.
Wes’ World – Watson Fit
If you’re lucky enough to live in beautiful California and San Diego especially, you can hit Wes up and get some personal training in with him. I’m sure that would be an amazing experience, just to learn from him first hand. You can get the same intensity that he drilled into people on those Cali yards back in the pen. The nice part being you can go home after an hour, rather than sit on your scratcher on twenty-three-hour lockdown.
Head on over to Wes Watson’s Watson Fit website and sign up with the rest of his soldiers. Learn all about self accountability. There’s no room for excuses with WW.

The Watson Fit Mindset
Once you’ve seen your first GP Penitentiary Life upload, you’ll become addicted like me. In fact the first time I saw WW was on Big Herc’s channel – Fresh Out Series. I just knew that this dude is authentic and I need to see more of him. Not because he was a bad guy, but because I liked his real talk.
Wes’ message is that there’s plenty of fake tough guys, but in reality they’re weak. It’s not tough to punch someone in the face, because you’re giving in to peer pressure or your feelings. The real tough guy is the man who walks away, who can talk things through like a real man. The dude who gets up at 4.30 am to catch the bus to work to feed his family. They’re the real heroes and tough guys. Not some idiot who couldn’t control his feelings.
Life is about learning from our mistakes. Those who don’t learn anything won’t progress. If you want to change your life for the better or you just want to watch a cool mo-fo YouTube channel, please listen to me if it’s just this once. Head over to GP Penitentiary Life now and enjoy the ride.
Wes uploads every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Make sure you set the reminder so you don’t miss out!
One thing that made me laugh while reading the comments section. Dude says: “Wes’s so savage he hasn’t even got any trolls!” That was certainly true last time I checked.
Until next time, homies. Peace. #StayFocussed
