KRS-One & Smif-N-Wessun Return With The ‘Seckle… Once Again’ Visual

As the legendary production duo known as Da Beatminerz prepare their first new album in nearly 20 years, Stifled Creativity, they return with a lyric music video for the remix of the album’s lead single “Seckle.” With verses from KRS-One and Smif-N-Wessun, “Seckle…Once Again” is available on all digital streaming platforms via Soulspazm.

Da Beatminerz defined the dark, gritty sound of underground Hip-Hop in the ’90s. Formed in 1992 by brothers Walter “Mr. Walt” and Ewart “DJ Evil Dee” Dewgarde, the production duo pioneered Hip-Hop’s brooding vibes, a tonal shift that came with the release of Black Moon‘s classic debut album Enta Da Stage. As producers of the seminal 1993 project in its entirety, Da Beatminerz set a precedent for hardcore Hip-Hop

Their sample-heavy, gutter tracks laced with heavy basslines, and hard kicks and snares helped reshape the music genre. In 1995, along with a third official member, Baby Paul, Da Beatminerz produced the entirety of Smif-N-Wessun‘s classic debut album Dah Shinin’. Their production credits eventually extended to records by Naughty By Nature, Eminem, D’ Angelo, MOP, Heltah Skeltah, Busta Rhymes, Next, Eightball & MJG, Nas, Dave East, Remy Ma, Styles P, Ghostface Killah, among others.
