"Turn it up!"



VERSE 1 (Royce Birth)
I used to daydream all day in front of speakers/
Keeping double decks set tapes eager new feature/
Played once for the day gone before-fore you dub it/
"Just remember where you heard it first!" man you got to love it/

Like momma’s cooking from the oven sticking to your stomach/
Cause back then what stuck was music with substance/
But now you can't trust it like politician statements/
and more reason keeping 'mute' on constant rotation/

See when I was young, being in my room, pumping up a tune/
Used to want to get my song up on Power Move/
Masterplan, Mr. Magic, Future Flava, now tragic/
I got a habit to say, "the thrill is gone, never coming back"/

Before the music dies, I hope it gets a little soul/
I'm speaking to the masses not the ones in control/
Bringing back the mold that would bridge both the new and old/
and if you need it now, make it known let it be known-

CHORUS (Tracey Soman)
You like the cuts, you feeling us/
It’s GBC and where we be (Radio)/
Ohhh like the cuts, vibe with us/
It’s GBC that’s who we be-

VERSE 2 (Mikeraphone)
Globally Broadcast Channeling HipHop/
KISS airtime good bye JACK’d like picked locks/
Don’t got to spit pop to bounce of satellites/
Outcomes to fall flat if all you rap is Sprite/

You can’t match my height CN Tower over you/
Even changing station can’t hold your tune/
Like soldier boot camps programming kills/
Pay for play list bills they be jamming skills/

Now our plan’s fulfilled first track on radio/
Block wack signals like antennas laid low/
FLOW’s amped 93.5 volts/
SIRIUS as cancer with no antidote/

Boasting you’re hype like rush off cocaine/
But ENERGY faded away like 108/
We’re ‘bout to run home plate off of Bassman’s bass/
Jones for soul on radio yo take a taste Eh!-

CHORUS (Tracey Soman)
You like the cuts, you feeling us/
It’s GBC and where we be (Radio)/
Ohhh like the cuts, vibe with us/
It’s GBC that’s who we be-

VERSE 3 (Matrix Logic)
FM to AM, AM to PM/
Weekday and weekend we guaranteeing/
Audio blocks to knock your socks off talk soft/
Better yet close your mouth shut your voice box off/

We talk fast on our broadcast/
You better listen close and take notes or get exposed as a fraud fast/
Your podcast and MP3s/
Might as well be empty files of blank CDs /

Next to GBC’s EPitome of instant classic/
EPs so hot it couldn’t be wrapped in plastic/
Like Chapstick my lips bomb/
Explosive Energy never needed fake applause like bad sitcoms/

So turn your radios on and get yourself tuned in/
Turn the volume up and things will soon begin/
To make sense again like Spanish to a Mexican/
The language loud and clear GBC will be the next to win-
