Double Dosage is a rap duo comprised of artists Loot and Juse. 2 Filipino Angelenos who met in middle school, where they found a common ground in their love and appreciation for music. Common influences and similar senses of humor, wittiness, and direction gives the two a dynamic chemistry that is apparent in their songs. Double Dosage released their first project “Loot, Juse, Respect Vol. 1” in 2009. This was a collection of songs they quickly put together to showcase their musical talents. The project title was a play off of the phrase “Money, Power, Respect,” as a statement used to explain their understanding of the need to pay dues to the game. Building their empire from the ground up, they logically decided to title their 2010 project “The Construction”, a self proclaimed street album, to signify the build up from their musical blueprint. Within those two years, Double Dosage has successfully managed to get themselves mainstream radio play on 93.5 KDAY, numerous satellite/online radio stations across the globe such as 210 West Radio, Soul Cole, The Ezentricity Show, and The Wave, to name a few.
They have been featured in XXL Magazine, The Source, and Kababayan LA. In addition, they’ve won numerous music competitions, the most notable being “2010’s I Run L.A. Competition” sponsored by Starr Strucc Entertainment; and judged by A&R’s of Interscope Records, Universal Records, and Konvict Muzik. Lastly, the two have been awarded on many occasions by recognition of different cities for their compelling efforts to assist with disaster-relief and fund raising. Hard work, independence, and dedication is the Double Dosage recipe for success. The following motives have allowed the two to film, direct, and edit their own music videos, successfully creating a huge online buzz. Double Dosage is becoming the new face of Los Angeles, aiming to 1) bring hip hop back to its roots; raw expressions and emotions in the form of music, and 2) serve as a voice for the people and community.
Double Dosage now prepares for their 2012 release, “Third Time Around,” an indication of this project being the third one they are releasing. Aside from the obvious, the title is a representation of the longevity of their career as musicians. A third journey down the risky road signifies their confidence and willingness to overcome the common obstacles of their artistry during this period of their music timeline. “Third Time Around” is a great display of Double Dosage’s true craftsmanship, with 100% original music, as they describe the world in their perspective.
