Carolina Dirty {@carolina_dirty} – SEER’S OF THE TRUTH


A Per HiPPNOTT Records Press Release:

Just last summer, South Carolina emcee Carolina Dirty woke up the world with her debut EP, New Girl In Town. Now a year later she’s ready for her official HiPNOTT album debut. The album, STILLATIT, includes production from Amiri, DJ Shakim, and many more. It will be available for free download this Labor Day.

Here’s the first single off the album, “Seer’s of the Truth”, produced by T-Blenda.



Remember rapper Mr. Malik from Illegal?  Of course we do! But when asked about his sidekick, people instantly think of Jamal (“Fades ‘em All”). What most don’t know is that the rapper honed his skills working with a young female emcee, Carolina Dirty, who ripped through the State of South Carolina as a kid. Rumor has it that over the years Carolina Dirty rose to fame with potential deals with Left Eye (TLC) and a very close signing with Mr.Malik via Death Row Records.

Now, Carolina Dirty reenters the game with the help of the Dynamic Duo, Spectac & Amiri. Dirty brings a raw edge to the music with rhymes that go straight for the juggular. Get ready Hip Hop world… there’s a new girl in town!


The Regiment {@TheRegiment} Back at {@Hippnott} – Celebrate W/ Brand New Track Feat. {@SadatX} {@ElDaSensei}



Press Release From HiPNOTT Records:

It’s been 3 years since Detroit Hip Hop duo The Regiment released their album The Panic Button on HiPNOTT Records. Since then, OSI and IseQold have been busy building their brand and working with other dope people in the industry.  Today, we are happy to annouce that The Regiment is back home at HiPNOTT Records!

To celebrate today’s news, we have a brand new track for free download. Produced by Japan’s DJ Duct, the new single “Raise Up” has The Regiment teaming up withSadat X (of Brand Nubian) and El Da Sensei (of The Artifacts).  Trust us, the song is amazing and is indicative of the new music you’ll be hearing here at HiPNOTT. Grab the free download below.


Modern day hip hop has become a battleground where binged out 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 and Ise define the Regiment as “a number of people fighting for a common cause.” When the cause is something as vast as Hip Hop culture there are no individuals that can get the job done alone. OSI and IseQold now lead The Regiment and legions of music lovers wanting quality work are willing to join the battle. Dealing with the everyday struggles of trying to make it in an often brutal world, The Regiment leaves the gold plated fantasies to others. Taking cues from artists as diverse as KRS-1 and J-Dilla, the crew mixes the uplifting with the painfully truthful alongside production reminiscent of the days when people of all ages could listen and enjoy musical truth.
