Before there was a "Double", there was Ronnie Rolon. A young man from the inner city of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Growing up in the inner city, Ronnie saw what the streets had to offer. As Ronnie matured he weighed the pros and cons of the streets, and compared it to the pros and cons of what God offers. Seeing that there were no cons with siding with God, Ronnie was reborn as Double. Double later on moved to Atlanta, Ga, where he still resides, and decided to take his gift of music to the masses. He became a member of Victory World Church, where Pastor Dennis Rouse is the overseer, and began to furthermore read his word and get closer to God. As Double continued to grow, he became an Urban Missionary with Freestyle, headed by Scott Free, and started to take the gospel where it needed to be heard the most which is the streets, detention centers, and everywhere else God leads. Double's music is honest and pure, and with the help of God, it's being used as an instrument to bring change to not only a dying culture, but a world as we know and see it. Takeback Records saw this in Double and recently offered and signed a deal with him with worldwide distribution. Double has the support of his fans globally, Takeback Records, 3HP Records, as well as his newly formed label, Norf Up Music. As far as the name Double goes, it speaks of the double portion God has given him and comes directly from the scriptures of Ephesians 3:20 which states; Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. In closing, Double is an instrument that God is using in multiple areas to bring glory to himself, and to bring music back to it's original format which is, God's Word.
