Last time we heard from GC we where interviewing him at SXSW and learning about this Alaska-born Houston-living rapper. He kept the future of his music and future releases hush-hush, but he was able to tell us a project was in the works and that he had some plans to heat up the summer. GC definitely backed up his word with this new song, and compared to his last releases, it definitely sounds like he’s moving in the right direction. The beat knocks hard, the delivery is refined, and the hook will have you nodding your head and reciting his lyrics. Expect to hear more from Nick in the near future, and be sure to show some support via soundcloud and twitter if you like what you hear.

Gone – GC

Download Gone - GC

Regrettably I’m a little late getting to GC’s submission, but I’m finally here to show you what this underground Houston artist and engineer has been cooking up in the last month. With a a sample from Janet Jackson’s “Got Til’ It’s Gone” ringing out in the background over a soft piano melody accompanied by the kicks and the scratches this beat is absolute gold. GC takes the painful tone of Janet’s voice and talks about his gifts, the coming success, and the negativity that comes with it among other things. It’s another astounding testament to his skill, and if I know anything about GC it’s that this is what he is meant to do. Hit that play button, cop the free download, and show this man some love on twitter.

Today I stumbled upon this submission from Houston, Tx ¬†artist GC and even though he’s new to our library this young emcee goes human torch on the beat telling a story about his love/hate relationship with a beautiful woman. Luke White provides this classy piano driven instrumental which was perfect for GC to come in show off his vocals and flex his lyricism. While the song is very easy to vibe to (as well as sing along) the message is a little darker, and bitter.

“I was chasin’ my dreams then I went to sleep, saw you callin’ my phone so I hit the beep. Not tryna gas ya, yet you fina’ then china glass. If I ever get a chance make a pass like Pistol Pete. Thought you had class like history, come to find that you never even finished school. Had to play the fool like Mr. T, said you wouldn’t leave me hangin’ then you kicked the stool.”

We’ve all been played by someone beautiful before, this song is a reminder to be skeptical of the beautiful temptress (or handsome devil for you ladies) because it very well could be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Enjoy the free release GC, make sure to follow these two on twitter, peep the H-town artist’s soundcloud, and keep an eye out for his forthcoming project SOCIAL MEDIA.
