HistoryEdit

The Regiment[2] was founded in 2006 by O.S.I and C.Reid. Both grew up on the same neighborhood on the westside of Detroit. After a year, they released their first major release in 2007, The Come Up[3] with the Rawkus 50 of Rawkus Records. Some years later, the two parted ways. In 2008, a college classmate of O.S.I.'s, IseQold, joined up with him. In 2009, the duo released their first LP as a group, called A New Beginning.[4] Apollo Brown produced their first single, "Old School Vibe".[5] "Abstract" from A New Beginning was featured on iTunes’ Indie Spotlight and was ranked at #8 on their Best of 2009.[6]

In 2010, they released A New Change, a collaborative EP with Soulution. In 2011, they had several releases. They released a mixtape, Back to Lyrics; an EP, First Mondays, and an LP, The Panic Button. The Panic Button was released under HiPNOTT Records,[7][8] and it received an honorable mention from DJ Premier for their album.[9] "Battle Cry", their first single from The Panic Button,[10] was produced by Apollo Brown.[11] In 2014, The Regiment released their most recent studio album, Live from the Coney Island.[12]
