Default Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers

found this jolly nice list on about.com - Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers
In ascending order for that unbeatable suspense...

50 - Ant Banks
49 - Buckwild
48 - DJ Scratch
47 - Scott Storch
46 - Stoupe
45 - Scott La Rock
44 - Dan the Automator
43 - The Beatnuts
42 - Daz Dillinger
41 - Mannie Fresh
40 - Q-Tip
39 - MF Doom
38 - P.Diddy & The Hitmen
37 - Madlib
36 - DJ Jazzy Jeff
35 - DJ Shadow
34 - Grand Master Flash
33 - Jam Master Jay
32 - Trackmasters
31 - Ski
30 - RJD2
29 - Lord Finesse
28 - Erick Sermon
27 - Swizz Beatz
26 - L.E.S.
25 - Organized Noize
24 - Da Beatminerz
23 - DJ Clark Kent
22 - DJ Muggs
21 - Easy Moe Bee
20 - Salaam Remi
19 - The Alchemist
18 - Just Blaze
17 - Diamond D
16 - Hi-Tek
15 - J Dilla
14 - DJ Quik
13 - Havoc
12 - Prince Paul
11 - the Neptunes
10 - Rick Rubin
09 - Timbaland
08 - Kanye West
07 - The Bomb Squad
06 - Marley Marl
05 - Large Professor
04 - RZA
03 - Dr. Dre
02 - Pete Rock
01 - DJ PREMIER

Thoughts? Favourites? Anything missing? Provide youtube evidence please.



For me El-P is the most obvious omission, you can keep all that noisy off-tempo stuff this is my minimalist choice
And personally I'd kick Kanye off the list and bring Madlib way up to the top 10. Not a big fan of good ol' G-funk these days either but Dre would probably have to stay at least top 20 simply because I couldn't think of any more producers, ha. Also I'd put Pete Rock below the Bomb Squad because jazz rap is already well represented. And where the f*ck is Eric B??

Anyway... sick 'em musicbanter!

Yeah, no Eric B is a big ommission. I'm a little suprised Dilla isn't higher. Not that I don't think you have it right, it's just that everyone's jumped on his dick since he died.
I'm not a Neptunes fan, so I gotta say that's awfully high.
I also think Swizz Beats is too low.
And no Ant? No love at all for him?
Emancipator would easily make it on my top fifty list, but I guess I could see him being left off a best fifty all time.
I would have put Boots somewhere on there, same with Timbaland.
Good list. I was just thinking of making one of these recently.

Edit: found Timbaland, I'm dumb.

Yeah, Swizz Beats can make some hot tracks.

Anyway, that list is pretty tight. Flash is wayy low which is weird since everyone loves him or soemthing.

Not including El-P on this list is downright criminal.

yeah this guy has it a bit mixed up... El-P definitely belongs in the top 20 for being totally unique and progressive along with the handful of other more recent producers on here I am familiar with.

The top 10 seems to focus on the producers that laid the styles for the modern day which is maybe why Flash isn't there I'm guessing... again why Kanye West is there I do not know, his productions aren't exactly a revelation, whereas Timbaland changed things for better or worse.
Rick 'fat beard' Rubin is overrated too, the 'heavy metal/hip-hop fusion' thing being a novelty, so kick him right down the list. It's really interesting that Pete Rock is chosen for number two... I'd replace him with Prince Paul or Eric B

Dan the Automator at only 44? He deserves to be in the top 10 for Dr. Octagonecologyst and Deltron 3030 alone.

Tell ya what, you guys go ahead and re-arrange the list according to your own preferences, and it will be just as true as the list you found on about.com.

whoa... it never occurred to me that musical preference was subjective before ... guess this is no place for idle conjecture or banter on topics of a musical nature
