DOUBLE LIFE - REVOLUTIONS/NO LIMITATIONS/REGIMANTS
PROD: DJ ZEPH. RAW ELEMENTS RECORDS

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!!!

L*RONEOUS DA VERSIFIER - "L" CHEMY/ IMPLOSION
PROD: DJ ZEPH. OCEAN FLOOR RECORDS

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.
