MY ALLTIME HIP HOP PRODUCERS

MY TOP 3 HIP HOP PRODUCERS ARE DJ PREMIER, RZA AND DR. DRE ALL IN THAT ORDER.  I DON'T THINK THERE ARE NO OTHER HIP HOP PRODUCERS PRESENT OR PAST THAT COMES CLOSE TO THEM. CHECKOUT WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT EACH.




DJ PREMIER IS THE BEST HIP HOP PRODUCER EVER IN MY BOOK.  IT WAS A TIME IN HIP HOP WHERE RAPPERS WEREN'T CONSIDERED HIP HOP UNTIL THEY GOT A BEAT BY PREMO.  WHEN I HEAR A PREMO BEAT I GET A CRAZY ADRENALINE RUSH.  I USED TO GET PREMO INSTRUMENTALS AND TRY MY BEST TO BE A RAPPER, THAT'S JUST HOW MUCH ENERGY I GOT FROM HEARING THE BEATS.  SOME RAPPERS DIDN'T EVEN SOUND NICE TO ME UNTIL THEY GOT ON A PREMO BEAT, IT MATTER IF THEY WERE RHYMING OFF BEAT.  PREMO CATALOG IS TREMENDOUS, I REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST HEARD NAS' "N.Y. STATE OF MIND" OR BIGGIE'S "UNBELIEVABLE" I WENT CRAZY!!! BUT YEAH PREMO HAS TOO MANY HOT ASS BEATS FOR ME TO MENTION CAUSE HONESTLY, I LOVE ALL OF THEM.






THE RZA IS MY SECOND FAVORITE HIP HOP PRODUCER OF ALLTIME.  I KNOW MANY MAY SAY I'M TRIPPING FOR PICKING RZA AND PREMO OVER DR. DRE BUT I'M FROM THE EAST COAST AND I WAS GETTING HEAVY DOSES OF RZA AND PREMO MUSIC.  THE RZA BEATS ARE LIKE ARTWORK TO THE EARS.  I MEAN HIS BEATS PAINT IMAGES IN YOUR HEAD.  SO I'M NOT SURPRISED THAT RZA IS SCORING MOVIE SOUNDTRACKS AND ACTING NOW.  RZA BEATS CREATED A TIMELESS SOUND FOR THE WU-TANG CLAN.  I WOULD HEAR A RZA BEAT AND AUTOMATICALLY KNEW ITS HIS BEAT WITHOUT KNOWING.  RZA BEATS WOULD HAVE ME ZONED OUT, SOMETIMES THEY WERE DARK AND  THEY WERE JUST SO DAMN HEAD KNOCKING.  I'M ALWAYS SATISFIED WHEN HEARING A RZA BEAT.










DR. DRE IS A LEGENDARY PRODUCER,  I MEAN DRE BEATS HAVE TAKEN HIM FROM BEING A RAPPER/PRODUCER TO A TOP BUSINESS MOGUL.  THE CRAZY THING IS, I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW DRE WERE MAKING THE BEATS UNTIL  THE CHRONIC ALBUM CAME OUT.  I JUST THOUGHT HE WAS JUST ONE OF THE RAPPERS FROM THE GROUP N.W.A. NOT ACTUALLY PRODUCING FOR THEM.  DRE BEATS COME WITH SO MUCH VARIETY OTHER THAN PREMO AND RZA.  I THINK THAT'S WHY HIS SOUND PROPELLED HIM TO  COMMERCIAL  SUCCESS SO EARLY ON.  DRE BEATS HAD THEM P-FUNK SOUL SAMPLES THAT MADE YOUR EARS HAPPY.  TO THIS DAY MOST WEST COAST RAPPERS GOT TO GET DR DRE'S STAMP OF APPROVAL BEFORE THEY GET THEIR RESPECT.  DR DRE  STILL REMAINS AS THE GO TO PRODUCER FOR A HIT RECORD, AND THAT IS WHAT TRULY SEPARATES DR DRE FROM PREMO AND RZA.  DRE WILL GET YOU A HIT RECORD,  DJ PREMIER WILL GIVE THAT AUTHENTIC HIP HOP SOUND AND THE RZA WILL PROVIDE A SUPER CREATIVE SOUND THAT'S HIP HOP.
