"Album review"

These young men have broken through the conventional molds of hip-hop. Bred in the
heart of the musical mecca, they have cultivated there sound with classic soul, jazz ,as
well as this era's hip hop. They epitomize the word "Soul Bearer". I personally have
experienced the energy of a Soul Mafia show and have been blown away time and time
again... Hand crafted and forged with the intricacy of
a Steinway piano this offering shows the depth and the struggle of this group.... the most earth shaking song in my opinion is " Fire & Ice",, the way G.C. described how he and his woman go through the struggles of their
relationship, while contemplating ending it, is pure genius. I felt like i was in his shoes
going thru the same thing.... a classic example of what hard work and determination will bring to fruition... between G.C.'s rhyming and saxophone
playing, Lex's vocal prowess, and Prizm's keyboarding you get a feeling of greater things
to come. I would play this Cd wherever i go.... The heart and soul of their music is laid out thru these melodic tales of
struggle, success, pain and triumph. I suggest you go out and cop this Cd today. - soultruthmusic.com

Versatile GC and Soul Mafia provide a refreshing sound to an industry that is scared to take risks. GC is his own triple threat by rapping, playing the sax on many of the tracks on this CD, and putting on a strong live show. - Whomag.net/dvd magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


Hailing from Ft. Greene, Brooklyn, G.C. and Soul Mafia offer a vision of music looking towards the future, drawing from the past, but firmly entrenched in the present. Their sound reflects influences as varied as Coltrane to Jay-Z, Coldplay to Prince, while ultimately landing within the graffiti tagged walls of hip-hop. The result is a Molotov cocktail of adept wordplay and searing saxophone riffs; hard beats and lush orchestration; technology and soul.

Born in Boston, raised in the Midwest, and now based in Brooklyn, music has always been a constant in the life of G.C. At the age of four he played harmonica along with his dad on guitar. At the age of nine he got his first beat up saxophone and along the way he picked up guitar, flute, piano, and drums. His love for rap was cemented after hearing the highly melodic approach of Dr. Dre on The Chronic.

Since landing in New York City in 2001, G.C. has become a strong presence on the underground through a trial by fire of open mics, battles, self promoted shows, and guerilla marketing tactics. His performance, a blistering live hip-hop set, immediately sets G.C. apart from his peers. Backed by Soul Mafia, the hard hitting ensemble led by producer/keyboardist Prism, G.C. has graced stages from Joe’s Pub to The Copacabana to Hot 97’s Festival Stage at Summer Jam 2006. Welcome to the future of hip-hop.
