Downlow Records is an independent Record Company From Richmond B.C. Started up in 2000 By Dan Foley , Downlow Records brought originality to the music game . Dan thought rap music was getting to poppy at the time and needed to stay true to it's streets roots more . So Dan Foley Created Downlow Records in 2000 with " Richtown Eastsider " being the first album of the company's history . That album was composed by the one and only Duece . Dueces debut album " Richtown Eastsider " was a gangsta album straight from the heart . " Heaven or Hell " was Duece's 2 nd album which features one of the greatest rap songs in Richmond history " Eastside Creepen " . I love that song and can always listen to it , no matteer what year it is . And then he released his 3 rd album " Pray 4 A Playa " which had the huge hit " Shycko Sh(t " . Then Crazy K released his classic classic debut album called " Playaz Life " This album was a huge hit and had 3 big hits on it " Freak Tonight " , " Richtown's Loadin Um Up " and " Jus Anotha Day " . I love this album man !! Downlow Records had 4 albums released in 2000 , their first 4 . " Double Duece " was released in 2001 . It was Duece's 4 th album and the first and only Double album from Downlow Records . The Double C.D. was full of hits and also saw Step Daddy J make his first appearance on Downlow Records . Duece's 5 th album later came out called " Final Destination " . Then Duece's 6 th solo came called " Downlow 4 Life " . Later on Crazy K came out with his 2 nd album called " Nation Wide Threat " . The last Downlow album for 2001 was a compilation album called : " History Of Playaz " . Downlow Records had 5 albums released in 2001 . Real R.I.C.G'z , a group compised of Crazy k and Duece , started 2002 off for Downlow . It was a real tight album !! Crazy K then came out with his 3 rd album called " Welcome To My World " . Then another tight album came out 4 Downlow , it was Duece's 7 th solo release called " Year Of The Duece " . Later on came the hit compilation album called " The Hatalation " where Duece and his homiez where hating on everyone . In one classic skit , Duece and Mr. Locko invade Priemere Gordon Campbell's house . Man , it's funny !! Then EM came out with the tight lacin' album called " Str8 From The Rich " Later on J Da Ripper came out with his debut album " J Da Ripper " It was a bumpen classic ! Duece's 8 th album " Richtown Eastsider 2002 " came out to end the great year of 2002 . Downlow Records had 7 album released in 2002 ! . Real R.I.C.G'z came out with their 2 nd album : " Kingpenz " in 2003 . Another chartopper , there was a lot of cool tracks in this album . Then EM came out with their 2 nd album too called " EM 4 Life " It was another smash hit . Duece's 9 th album came out " 5 C Made " and it was one of his best offerings !

In 2005 Duece's 10 th Downlow Album ( 11 th solo ) was called " Deeper Than Blood " It was a cool album , with great songs . It was Duece's 11 th solo as his 10 th album ( Duece's 1 st Jugovich Records Album ) " Eastside Creepin " came out in 2004 under Jugovich Records . The Deeper Than Blood album would be the last from Downlow for 2 n half years . 2005 had 1 album released only . There was no albums released in 2006 from Downlow . .
