Introduce the members of GCN.
All the members of GCN is from Dallas Texas, first we have Tommy T. who was introduce to music by his grandmother, who love to hear him sing, Tommy brings that R&B swag, and sound plus excellent writing skills to the group that set GCN apart from other groups. Lil O has hardcore gangsta lyrics and producer skills that’s second to none. And Lil C who conveys a unique and versatile flow that astonishing to hear. And last but not lease is CoFeezy who bring the energy and flavor that’s the group needs to maintain its edge in the music business.

How did did the label start?
South Dallas Records was created by Richard & John Jiles as an outlet for the neighborhood kids who didn’t play sports so they also could dream of being successful. South Dallas Records and GCN developed at this same time and has been a movement that won’t die. GCN didn’t start out as music, it started with our manager’s mother adopting all the kids in our neighborhood from the average kid to the Football team, Basketball team of Madison High school, and the kids started calling themselves Granny Crib Ni_ _as, which we later change to Granny Crib Nation to be politically correct. As Granny Crib cultivated Lil O met Tommy T. which was like getting that star quarterback for your favorite football team. He was the ingredients that make GCN an outstanding gumbo.

What’s something you wish you knew when you first started your career that you do know now?
The Internet!!! It has made us realize that we belong in this business, by performing at SXSW this past March, opening up for Rich Homie and Young Joc and the CJ Miles Basketball player Art & fashion show and now gigs opportunity are coming from all direction, even as far as St. Thomas.

What’s in the works?
In September of 2012 GCN release an EP title “The Commencement” which can be obtain on ITunes and our current album “It’s Our Destiny” is schedule for release August of 2014 with fifth teen top of the line cuts and will also be available on ITunes. The future plans for GCN and South Dallas Records is simple, Keep Grinding our way up that ladder until we reach the top. - Arron Cortez
