This depends. A "gram" is a measure of mass, while a "cc" is a measure of volume, so this can't really be answered. The two measure different things and basic dimensional analysis teaches that you cannot convert between measures with different dimensions such as these without additional information.

As a simple mental exercise, consider a cm3 of air and of water. They will have very different masses.
