I have noticed, being from New Zealand myself, that this generally more associated with following of musical tastes.
"G" is a shortened form of "Gangsta", and so it is more widely used by the fans of Rap and HipHop than by fans of other musical genres. Though I do admit that others have picked it up.
Scary thing is, I can clearly remember when it first started getting used... Does that mean I'm old?
