about

“Ground Control” is phase 1in Urban Mercury’s mission to elevate Hip-Hop to new heights and dimensions. This Mixtape is a genre expanding experience that takes the listener into the world of Urban Mercury. It’s a world full of the good and the bad that comes with fast living, big spending, and exotic women. The album incorporates their love of all music with influences of R&B with “Runaway” & “It’s You”, sixties rock with “Ground Control” & “Paid”, club bangers “Forget About It” & “Future”, and then to the after-party with “Famous” & “Middle.” Urban Mercury also stays true to their deep Hip-Hop roots with introspective cuts like “B.I.T.S.” & “Dreams.” Take off with Urban Mercury as they explore the universe of music.

Track Name: Runaway
Chorus 1: 2x
Hey!
U gotta do what U wanna do
Go where U wanna Go
Be who U wanna Be
U!
Be my runaway
Will U be my runaway?

Verse 1: A-Dub
Said she's leaving
She's out the door
She tired of grieving
She can't take no more
So, c'mon let's slide
Show me the feelings
That U hide
Tell me what U don't say
Baby, let's runaway
Vaca, in places they can't say
Concierge look at 'em like,
"U can't stay"
Waiting 4 the day
We hop in yacht
And just dock
In a far away spot
Far from the block
Don't turn back
Baby, don't stop
Like the wife of Lot
The city getting hot
U with me or not?
Wanna see what I see?
What kind of man would I be
If I didn't take U to the summit?
At the top like we won it
Look around U
We no longer running
Powder slopes
Let's elope
No tropes
No jokes
U been with me from the start
U deserve this spot
U ran away with my heart

Chorus 1: 2x
Hey!
U gotta do what U wanna do
Go where U wanna Go
Be who U wanna Be
U!
Be my runaway
Will U be my runaway?

Verse 2: Acee
Hustle at quicker pace
Grind for a better place
Sometime runaway
Long time plenty paid
Sand man, Sammie Day
Dark knight, in the shade
U love me, but U leave me
U hate me, but U need me
No matter how hard I try
I can't leave this world alive
Gone are the days
When love was free
I pay everyday
Baby, stand on me
I ignore all the hate
Put our backs to the fate
They rush, but I wait
They fold and they break
I give U all the finer type things
That U needing
My clockwork bleeding
Hearing that U leaving
This ain't a do me wrong song
This a hood poem
Loud in ya speakers
Chong with the Cheech - ah
6 after mid-night
Holding back the daylight
My star so bright
This a one-way flight

Chorus 2: 2x
Hey!
U gotta do what U wanna do
Go where U wanna Go
Be who U wanna Be
U!
Be my runaway
Will U be my runaway?

Verse 3: Keez
Can we take off
And land in a dream?
Show U different things
Hot thoughts
Bright scenes
Back against the wall
It's us against them all
Let's runaway from it all
Spring forward
Make the call
Find me in a dark place
No hope or grace
Need a place to hide-away
Better yet slide away
Always need the right of way
Baby, where we going now?
Time to bring it back
Lost in time space
Find me on the track
Right from wrong
I ain't never going back
So I'm on a mission
Time to get what we wishing
Take care of what we missing
So let's go
I wanna know
Are U going my way?
I wanna know
Are U down for me?
Let's go, let me take U away
Can we run and find our place?

Chorus 3: Fade out
Hey!
U gotta do what U wanna do
Go where U wanna Go
Be who U wanna Be
U!
Be my runaway
Will U be my runaway?

Verse 1: Acee
I can make U famous
Depends how the brain is
R U a brainiac?
Can U keep me coming back?
Built for the fame
Word is Bond, James
If I rested on this talent
That would be a shame
My life is heart stopping
Mixed with shopping
Flash bulbs popping
You dropping
Choose ya own adventure
Baby, where U wanna go?
Custom made clothes
Tell them tags where to go

Verse 2: A-Dub
New York in the spring
And Paris in the fall
Throw on that Vera Wang
It’s time to ball
L.A. for the weekend?
That’s so last season
Hands on my keys like,
“Baby, I’m leaving.
Let’s go. Do U really need a reason?”
Pocket full of Euros
I’m so European
Border hopping
U can say I’m fleeing
Catch me if U can
Blanks checks
Let’s jet
World tour
In couture
Channel, Laurent and/or Dior
U can tell if u want
Baby, it’s yours
I life without more
Um, that would be a bore
So let’s say, au revoir
Better yet, bonjour
To new shores
Time to go
Baby, check out like stores
Girl, I can make us famous for sure

Chorus: 2x
I can make U famous, girl
I can make Ur toes curl
Amsterdam, Paris France
I been all around the world
I can make U famous
Yeah, girl
I can make U famous
Yeah

Verse 3: Keez
I can make u scream
Yell yes while we shopping
Drive-by, wet
H2 with the drop screen
Call U rabbit with them carrots
Tell ya’ll hop in
Juggle these knots
Cuz there ain’t no stopping
U my warrior
So continue bopping
And we rotten core
While we riding fours
Bonnie on your feet
And shine on my wheels
Rollie with the cake
Welcome back Cartier
Watching U
Cuz U dime like the year
We doing it right
So they say it ain’t fair
Money stroll in like a baby in here
My ass makes money
So designer underwears
My vision ain’t clear
Cuz the shades that I wear
Mejor for these
Women I adore
Easy money
Land lord
Back packs
World tour
I can make U famous
In these places we explore
Track Name: It's You
Chorus: 2x
Girl it’s U
U stay on my mind
Like all the time
U just got to try my loving
Girl it’s U


Verse 1: Acee
Let me flap jack to your room
Baby in the AM
Turn me up
When U hear me
9-7 FM
Santa with a chain
I grind for my present
I move package
Give a fuck about a stizamp
Mr. International
Louie V, passports
Outfits optional
Anything U ask for
My sepentor
Serpentine
Your defend - dor
Hurting me
Love how U kept that
Diamond shine
Hello kitty cat
Now U mine
I will never let U go
And I will never let U go
It’s U I’m talking to
Sidewalk walking through
Kiss on the first date
Purse away, let me pay
Now it’s all nicey
Now U my wifey
Finger so icey
Just, just trust me

Chorus: 2x
Girl it’s U
U stay on my mind
Like all the time
U just got to try my loving
Girl it’s U


Verse 2: A-Dub
The pitty pat
Of little feet
Make her life complete
On a quest for the good life
I can barely sleep
Be with you for the rest of my life?
That’s a promise I can keep
Get the message?
Now wait for the beep
We in the Range
As I pull up the street
In my dreams
My team don’t push birds of raw
Or shop at Bergdorf’s
We own the store
Ain’t Warren, when I say “I want it all”
My G’s stand for generals
Wealth that’s generational
Baby, look at yourself
You’re so inspirational
School work, home work
Still got time to make that body work
Yea, you never really needed me
Wanna be what U see in me
My life never ever been better
Ever since I met her
I never give you up
I just got to give it up
Now let’s live it up

Chorus: 2x
Girl it’s U
U stay on my mind
Like all the time
U just got to try my loving
Girl it’s U

Verse 3: Keez
Or mayabe it’s just me
Put you on a different level
Different pedigree
And do you agree?
The future can U see?
Open doors for opportunities
And do U need a key?
Or maybe we a match
Duplicate our love
And bring it right back
And maybe we can celebrate
Toast to the good life
Make it a good life
Bet U a good wife
But I’m a wanderer
Can’t commit
Don’t want regrets
These thoughts I won’t forget
And take a chance
If U willing
The pain’s that’s killing
Show I got love for U
And I’ma always stay true
If U want me to
I’ma try and maintain with U
Should’ve known from the start
Nothing could tear us apart
Show U love from the heart


Chorus: 2x
Girl it’s U
U stay on my mind
Like all the time
U just got to try my loving
Girl it’s U
Track Name: B.I.T.S.
Chorus: 2x (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow

Verse 1: Keez
I was born to do something
Don’t tell me I can’t succeed
Momma said “do anything,
You just need to believe”
This is where the money come
No brain
Leave ‘em dumb
Backpack without school
Feed ‘em paper
Obey the rules
Don’t maintain with these Fool’s
Light it up
Ricky Flair
Just kids on the stairs
Can’t climb to my lair
Chemistry ain’t there
Robbery should be next
Fuck the game
Rough sex
No need for latex
Asking, who’s got next?
Put five on my stride
Bubble gum on the ride
Floss daily like I should
I’m a star in the hood
And you better treat me good
I’m a star in the hood
And you better treat me good

Chorus: 2x (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow

Verse 2: A-Dub
I’m heavy in the streets
Like a block of concrete
Stuck up on this spot
Like there’s glue up on my feet
Million dollar dreaming
I can see it in my sleep
And I know them boys scheming
I can see ‘em when they creep
Give a fuck about me
But hear my momma’s grief
So I’m riding with heat
Ain’t talking police (shhh)
Pigs on the wire
Why?
Cuz the cable basic
Food on the table, dog
I could only taste it
Said I’d never see this money
Claim I needed Lasik
And let’s face it
If my brother Nate was white
He would’ve got a light sentence
They talking like 20 years
Ain’t a life sentence

Chorus: 2x (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow

Verse 3: Acee
I was so damn embarrassed
When I pushed the wheel barrel
And my fly shit was burrowed
And my iPad wasn’t powered
And the diesel wasn’t sour
And my money never showered
Money get the fame
And the fame get the power
Flashing like train smoke
Devil red Range Rove
Laser beam
Ozones
Double check
Six O’s
Acee’s for the latch keys
Who wanna grow up like me
Till they see that light beam
And our momma’s cry and scream
Only for the hopeless
Who stay focused on the grind
I was born in the streets
‘Til the streets take my life
I was born in the streets
‘Til the streets take my life
I was born in the streets
‘Til the streets take my life

Chorus: Fade Out (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Track Name: Ground Control
Ground Control to Major ILL…

Verse 1: Acee
Beast of the garden
Slick like New Orleans
Oil got U boiling
Fresh world spoiling
Why should we care?
Homie, we don’t live there
Enjoy the cool breeze
Burn trees under trees
Mouth full of Ozone
Pocket full of grey stones
Or is it grey skulls?
Fuck the world to the balls
We on that shop'ahol
But U can’t blame it on
The weed and the alcohol
If U don’t want it all
The whole of the law is
I do what I wish
Juggernaut through this game
This famous pure road kill
Stick the side and let it bleed
Plant my money tree
Deep up on the steeps
Of Calvary

Chorus:
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feel
When all the lies seem very real
And that’s just how it feel
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feels
How it feels
How it feels
And that’s just how it feel


Verse 2: A-Dub
Yes, ill is us
And we so illustrious
Let me illustrate
All the fucking fuss
Sex drugs and Hip-hop
All up in the zip-lock
Keep the heat cocked
Or dodge shots through
Ur sheet rock
Hailing from Providence
More than confident
Leaning in the cock-pit
Moving through your block kid
U want a problem?
Come and get one
Shining in your hood
Do these stars look different?
The ozone got her dancing on the ceiling
Before my O’s gone
Nigga, I will be a villain
Call RICO
We only for that major dealing
Hip-hop police
Know we bout to make a major killing

Chorus:
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feel
When all the lies seem very real
And that’s just how it feel
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feels
How it feels
How it feels
And that’s just how it feel

Verse 3: Keez
And we here
Pass it along
The track we be on
Be the best
It’s, it’s on
And I call ‘em out
Point ‘em out
As I see ‘em
And I wouldn’t wanna be ‘em
Throw it out
Willie Beaman
And will he be a man?
Take initiation
Figure out why they faking
Need some motivation
Take a bite
While it’s tasty
Cold zone, top to feet
And my world can be
As hot as Heat
And U sitting
Too weak on these fools
Sipping to get a buzz
U sipping O’Doul’s
Handy man, no tools
Still ill and immune to the virus
Still spread out and still the livest

Chorus:
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feel
When all the lies seem very real
And that’s just how it feel
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feels
How it feels
How it feels
And that’s just how it feels
Ground Control to Major ILL
And that’s just how it feels
When all the lies seem very real
And that’s just how it feels
Ground Control to Major ILL
Take your ego pills
And my God’s love be with U
Star’s look different
When they all fall from view
