The Shing Shing Regime was formed over time in the geographical location that is now known as Canada. Having all been raised and brought up under the study of ”Golden Era” Hip-Hop, all members of the group took a first hand interest in the various expressions of the culture (i.e. rhyming, break-dancing, graffiti and dj-ing) at a young age. Further, being exposed to other genres of music (ex. Reggae, Rock, Funk, Soul, Jazz and R & B) helped shape what would eventually become the “Shing Shing” sound.
The group consist’s of MCs Cee Self 7, Born “Absolute” Truth & “The Future Buddha” DJ Akiin (pronounced Ah-keen). “Shing”, as described by the group, represents a “sharp mentality” and is the exemplification of an individual’s best parts or talents. An acronymn, representing this idea, “Shining His (or Her) Innate Natural Gifts” further illustrates this ideal.
Tired of the same old, the group’s purpose is to bring back a certain level of civilization and love back to music. Shing Shing Regime have been featured on mixtapes in both Canada and the U.S. They have opened for Vast Aire (Cannibal Ox), Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek), Hell Razah (of Sunz of Man) and the GZA (Wu-Tang Clan).
Their debut full-length EP(Edutainment Project) THE INVINCIBLE SWORDPLAY has been slated for 2011 release and anticipation is high on both sides of the border and abroad.
