Detroit hip hop duo and HiPNOTT Records recording group The Regiment have linked up with Big Noise Radio and KevinNottingham.com to bring their new mixtape, Back To Lyrics, to the streets. The duo comprised ofOSI and IseQold blasted into 2011 with their Apollo Brown-produced “Battle Cry”. Now The Regiment is taking it Back To Lyrics with a new mixtape that pays homage to some of hip hop’s greatest duos such as Twinz and Outkast.
The project is based around an interview The Regiment recently did with Big Noise Radio, broken into three parts. The rest of the mixtape includes 11 tracks of raw, unadulterated hip hop with OSI and IseQold going in hard over beats from Ghostface’s “Daytona 500”, Jay-Z’s “Dead Presidents”, and Big Pun & Fat Joe’s “Twinz (Deep Cover ’98)”.
The Regiment will be accepting beats from producers from now through August, for a chance to be featured on the duo’s official HiPNOTT album release, The Panic Button, due out this fall.
