X-Military Featuring Mike C ‎- Mind Blow / Slippin' - 1996

12" - 1996 - One Life Records 

Let's talk about X-Military, a hip-hop group which was founded in Oahu Hawaii shortly after the Gulf War. X-Military was comprised of Keith Wallace (Wally-D) and Cedric Mason (Ceddy-C), Mike Chesser (Mike C), Burtom Astrum (BA) and Big T, all members of the armed forces. 

In 1996, they dropped their first and only one 12" on One Life Records, composed of two tracks titled "Mind Blow" and "Slippin'" produced by Mike C. Both tracks were also released on Cassette and on CDr format. 

Wally-D : "We all are from different cities. I'm from Indianapolis, Ced is from New York, and Mike is from Chicago. BA and Big T were Body Guards, but not sure where they were from...
The connection happened while we were in Hawaii. Mike C was in a production group called M&M Soundtrax's with his partner Myke Booker (Casen). I met Booker while visiting Kaneoa Marine Base. We began recording at our studio on Hickam AFB. Ced and I were about to separate from the military, so we decided to form X-Military and produce some hip-hop music.
X-Military performed all throughout Hawaii; at local clubs, military bases, outside park and beach venue's, eventually performing as the opening act for Teddy Riley at the Blasedale Arena, the biggest venue on the island of Oahu at the time.

Mike was then transferred to his second duty assignment in Hampton Virginia, and Me and Ced soon followed. This is where One Life Records was formed. The Founders of One Life Records were Mike Chesser, Keith Wallace, Cedric Mason, Kirk Lewis, Ray Paige, Adam Gibbs and Joey Cypress."

Wally-D : "We distributed approximately 1,000 copies of "Mind Blow / Slippin'". We produced a compilation album soon after that featuring X-Military and a host of local artists. We traveled throughout the east coast performing in Philly, Atlanta, Florida and even New York's Apollo theatre.

Soon after returning from a tour in Florida, Kirk decided to move to Arizona. Mike C and Adam moved to Maryland and later formed the production team of the Platinum Brothers. This new production team worked with several major artists such as Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, J-Lo, Keith Sweat, and was even nominated for a Grammy with the RnB artist J. Holiday. I moved back to Indianapolis to open a commercial recording studio in Downtown Metropolitan area called Skrewface Entertainment. There I would work with artists such as Hit Skrewface, Mike Epps, Freddie Gibbs, Young Plat and JT the Jugganaut. Ced decided to take his talents to Australia and become an independent artist named Keelo. Ray now owns several apparel and ethnic beauty stores throughout Williamsburg VA, and Joey has a commercial studio in Hampton VA. We all still stay connected through multiple social media platforms and continue to produce timeless music."

Mad Props to Keith Wallace aka Wally-D
