The world has two new musical genius's to the hip-hop throne, Johnathan (Mackamillion) and Jarred (Mr.Mackmore) aka, Double Vision (DV). Double Vision are twin brothers that have been compared to duos such as Kriss Kross, Camp Lo, Little Brother,Outkast and the recent Chicago based duo The Cool Kids, for their impeccable style of dress code. 'We like to set trends for what should and shouldn't be. We are not gangsters, we are more like a funky twist of backpackers and macks,' Mackamillion says. With being born in a city with such artistic energy and cultural diversity (Venice, CA), and then living in between cities throughout the mid-west and the south, it's no wonder these baby faced men have such old souls and insight (which reflects in their music). Rhyming since the tender age of 7, they first emerged as Reflection, later on changing their name to what is now known as Double Vision (DV). From there they hooked with long time partner Bill Blast aka Motion Plus as their main producer, who eventually hooked up with Jia Davis formerly of the infamous STL duo Bits N Peices, who is also featured on their debut album: NO EXPLANATION! When asked about theire genre of music they so proudly claim as their own, Mr.Mackmore explains, 'we speak for the men and women who seem to naturally attract the opposite sex without what some people call game or the use of pick up lines. As for the backpacker part, we're talking about those independent artist and entrepreneurs who's got their own hustle, no matter what genre of music or business they're involved in'. Mackamillion holds no cut cards for any song, topic, or issue. Especially on the somewhat controversial song 'Mental Chains'. Creatively, rap is at a stand still, and Double Vision brings an end to the stagnation with songs like, 'So Cool' and 'Backpacker', that showcase the group's intriguing personalities and personifies their 'ahead-of-our-time style. There is no question as to why their music is so magnetizing. Double Vision addresses the issues of the common folks, not the 'iced out jewels' or drug dealer stories that our ears are currently saturated with. Double Vision represents the real issues we all go through. It's obvious these guys just want to bring the fun back into music. Sit back, relax and be prepared. Double Vision is solely interested and dedicated to making innovative and creative music.'at the end of the day, we make music for those who actually have a brain', says Mackamillion.
