Da Beatminerz share the video for their De La Soul, Rasheed Chapell, Pharoahe Monch,  and Corey Glover-assisted “My Year.” The ’90s star hip-hop production duo is releasing their first album in 20 years. Brothers Mr. Walt and DJ Evil Dee have spent more time producing for others including their seminal work with the Boot Camp Clik and Smif-N-Wessun. They worked outside of their Brooklyn crew producing beats for Nas, Eminem, Rah Digga, and others proving that they had much more up their sonic sleeves than the jazz-funk sound they debuted on Black Moon’s first album. The boom-bap architects were recently heard on an episode of Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga. “My Year” is the second single from Stifled Creativity and the video looks like a moving painting of all the artists. Mr. Walt explained how the single came together in a press release. 

“Been friends with De La since 88 and Monch since 87 so the relationship  was already there. I met them all at the record store I worked at (Music Factory in Jamaica, Queens) and this is the second song I did with both (De La “The Hustle” & Monch “Tight [REMIX]”). “My Year” was one of the first songs we worked on when we started the album and the order you hear them in is the order we made. It took a minute to get Dave’s vocals because of his health. When we got them, We were so grateful and  appreciative. He didn’t have to do the song but he came through & that the world to me.I met Rasheed through Kenny Dope. When I heard him, I automatically wanted to work with him, so when we put the blueprint together for the song, I knew he would fit perfectly. The icing on the cake was Corey Glover (Thanks to Guy Routte). Everything came together just how we wanted.” 

Stifled Creativity will be released on June 20th via Soulspazm. It can be pre-ordered, pre-saved, and streamed now.
