Double Life - SHANTARAM - 2021

CD - 2021 - Noble House 

 The Bay Area-based duo Double Life (L*Roneous & Gennessee) finally dropped their debut album on CD format, more than twenty years after releasing their legendary 12" "Revolutions" on Raw Elements Records.

Gennessee : "Back in 1997, we pressed 1K copies of our first single “Revolutions” and it became a cult classic! Stretch and Bob played it numerous times on their legendary radio show, somehow the record found life overseas, we toured the world, opening up for incredible emcees like KRS-One, Mos Def & Talib Kweli, De La Soul, Tha Alkaholiks, Black Eyed Peas and repped at just about every big function that came to The Bay in The Golden Era. We got a million views on YouTube before streaming even existed. Legendary cyphers with Freestyle Fellowship, Acey Alone, Bored Stiff....we were on the college radio charts when you had to mail away for them. Needles to say, it’s been a long time coming. 

Some of these songs have been in the vault for 2 decades. We went in and brought everything up to speed. Had to hit up our partner in crime @djrawb415 for those masterful cuts...It was like old times!!! I hope y’all enjoy this work."

300 copies only....

Mad Props to DJ Raw B.
