LIFE - REVOLUTIONS/NO LIMITATIONS/REGIMANTS
Double life is
L*Roneous , Gennesee and Dj Raw B. The tracks from this group are less polished
as they are on an indie, they dont have that much scrill to spend on production
and I feel that this is definitely hamppering the group from making the
impact that they could. The emcees offer conscious messages to the feeble
minded, be it about the realities of daily struggles or info on the shady
industry and the way its poisoning the artform and corrupting the minds
of artists and consumers alike. REGIMENTS is where the moneys at, an underground
cut that is on point. The other tracks cover the same themes but the music
is less gripping and thats not helping when the emcees have such skill.
This is not a party but some serious shit!!!

DA VERSIFIER - "L" CHEMY/ IMPLOSION
Lots of major lable
emcees depend on their back tracks to disguise their lyrical deficiencies.
I get the distinct feeling that L*Ronny could rhyme off of rubber band twangs
and still come off doper than most. He's words seem to flow effortlessly
and homeboy doesnt use one of todays popular cliches, nah mean? The production
on the single is jazzy, like on IMPLOSION, a few bars on an Anita Baker
song get liberated for the honour of backing Da Versifier ,as he blends
words, phrazes and syllables. Its clear that he posesses some poetic flair
and the rhythms he uses changes thru out the verse. Not just the last words
of every line rhyme, but there are inner and outter rhymes. When it comes
down to technical ability L*Roneous is way above average. Bonus cut THE
"L" PERSPECTIVE is my favourite. L gets open with loose thoughts, bits n
pieces of symbolism and he's special slang twist to let us know where he's
at.This happens over some muted horns and a snare/ kick drum combination
that'll get your head nodding. All will not be clear at the first listen
but multiple listens will alleviate the hindrance of ignorance.
