Derek Minor is a member of a small, elite class of hip hop artists who are adept at MCing, producing, and running their own companies. Two of his albums, 2015’s Empire and 2013’s Minorville, reached Number 6 on the Top Rap Albums chart, and 2011’s Dying to Live achieved the Number 11 spot. His wordplay and relatable lyrics have made him an in-demand collaborator who has worked with the likes of Lecrae, Andy Mineo, and Colton Dixon. Minor is slated to release his next project, The Trap, on August 10th on his Reflection Music Group label.

A note from Derek Minor:
'This contest has been amazing. I honestly didn’t expect this many entries! There were so many dope beats submitted, I needed an extra week to actually pick a winner. But after narrowing it down to my top 10, I was able to make my decision. When coming up with the idea for this contest, I knew off the back that I wanted something completely different from the original track. Neodyne Project jumped out to me from the beginning. Thanks to everyone who submitted! The support for this contest has been mind blowing. I also included some of my favorites that gave Neodyne Project a run for their money.' - Derek Minor
