When a hip-hop album leads off with songs entitled "Pimp Bitch" and "25 Hoes," its safe to assume we're not in socially conscious A Tribe Called Quest-style territory. Such is the case with Tela's Double Dose. For those enamored of the Dirty South style of rap, Tela delivers with a vengeance. His full-on, unapologetic evocations of the playa/hustla/gangsta lifestyle are what DOUBLE DOSE is all about. He brings these tales of livin' large and low to life with a rich vocal delivery and a gusto-filled production that utilizes infectious grooves and visceral synth tones.
