The Regiment have teamed up with graphic designer RF3RD to create a new project which merges 2 of the 5 elements of Hip Hop: MCing and Graffiti. The new project, S.O.U.L. (Sound Of Us Living), is one of the first to utilize our new platform — HiPNOTT Certified, an outlet of HiPNOTT which allows us to showcase specific brands represented or sponsored by the label. HiPNOTT Certified, over the coming months, will bond with and promote individuals/brands within the industry such as graphic artists, DJs, videographers, and clothing designers. It allows us to focus on other aspects of the industry and push the HiPNOTT brand even further. RF3RD is an extremely graphic designer and we are proud to label him HiPNOTT Certified!
Beginning today and each Friday at the top of the month, The Regiment will release a track from S.O.U.L. along with original artwork from RF3RD. Here’s the first cut, “S.O.U.L.”, produced by Sinitus Tempo.
The Sound Of Us Living (S.O.U.L.) is a story about a boy’s journey to find out about his past, and more importantly, shape his future. The story takes place on Earth, present day. A boy and his father are trapped in a battle of apoplectic proportion with a force known as Legion. Legion is an army commanded by his father’s former friend and mentor. The setting is urban cities and suburban country side. Using the spirits of warriors who lived long ago “S.O.U.L.’s” the boy and his father wage war with Legion.
Legion was first created in Africa; where the boy’s father is from. Due to his father’s mysterious nature, the boy has no idea what S.O.U.L.’s are at the onset of the story. Until he is able to clearly control his mind, body, and spirit, he is oblivious to the hidden world around him.
Later, the boy is thrust into a war without warning and must trust his life to S.O.U.L. guardians of his own. With new found power, encouragement, and curiosity the boy voyages the world to find answers about who he is and how to interprete the Sound Of Us Living.
