MP3: 3rrdy Baby - "Dynamite Remix"

Third Degree AKA 3rddy Baby is 1/3rd of New England's hottest up and coming super group "DCFAM".

Hailing from the gritty streets of “East Ville,” 3rd is the kind of undeniable artist that the game has been missing. As he continues to grow he will surely be known for his fearless style that mixes an aggressive and flamboyant flow, with powerful punchlines and wordplay, with his signature melodic and infectious hooks.

Fueled by tremendous levels of adversity throughout his life, 3rd Degree has already made a tidal wave splash on the local hip-hop scene in the Greater Boston Area and plans to only elevate that in the future.

3rddy Baby has decided to release a pair of remixes in order to continue to build the buzz after the release of his single "I'm On Fire".

MP3: The Regiment prod. by Apollo Brown - "Battle Cry"



Fresh off their recent signing with HiPNOTT Records, Detroit hip hop duo The Regiment are ready to start 2011 off with a BANG! Teaming up with one of last year's hottest producers, Apollo Brown, The Regiment gives us a taste of what's to come with their buzz single "Battle Cry".  Fans of the Detroit hip hop sound from artists such as Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, and Royce Da 5'9" will embrace The Regiment as if they've been listening to them for years.

Look for their new mixtape, Back To Lyrics, dropping February 9th at Their album, Panic Button, will be released this summer on HiPNOTT Records. For more information, check their artist page at


About The Regiment:

Modern day hip hop has become a battleground where false messiahs of materialism have often gained the upper hand, but MCs OSI and IseQold of the Regiment are the positive force for change in music. OSI had originally formed the Regiment as a vehicle to showcase his skills along with those of his partner C. Reid. Based in Detroit, they had done several shows locally before being selected to be part of the Rawkus 50, a compilation selected by Rawkus Records that represented a who’s who of today’s hottest emerging Hip Hop artists. The project was a success and the Regiment stood alongside some of the best upcoming hip hop in the nation. And while that would’ve been enough for some, OSI wanted more.

After the departure of Reid, OSI connected with IseQold, another Detroit MC who also shared a desire to make music that could speak to more than the materialistic. The battle for the soul of hip hop has been ongoing, but rather than simply watch and complain, OSI and Ise redefined the Regiment as something more than just two men. A regiment is comprised of a number of people fighting for a common cause, and when the cause is something as vast as hip hop itself, there’s no way two individuals alone can get the job done.

OSI and IseQold now lead the Regiment, a collective of fans and music lovers who want more from their music and are willing to join the battle. Dealing with the everyday struggles of trying to make it in a sometimes brutal world, the Regiment leaves the gold plated fantasies to others. Taking cues from artists diverse as KRS-1 and J-Dilla, the Regiment lyrically mixes the uplifting as well as the painfully truthful with production that hankers back to the days when hip hop wasn’t a dirty word, when people of all ages could listen and enjoy musical truth.
