03 August 2015: Gemini - Casualties Of Life (digital re-release)

"Casualties Of Life" was one of the very first projects that we've reviewed and was one of the reasons eventually was brought to life. This project was released back in 2002 by an 831 area code representative by the name of Gemini (today known as Tha GrindHouse); you can read our interview we did with him a few years ago. Despite an underground exterior of the album it was packed with some well known figures as Yukmouth, Mr. Kee, Young Droop, Smuggla, Yun-Gun, Key Loom and a lot more local artists. Tha Grindhouse is preparing to bring the project back to life and put it on digital market sometime around mid September. He's also working on a new material - an EP titled "Fish And Spaghetti" that is scheduled to be released around the same time.
