The Source Magazine Picks 20 Greatest Producers

In 20 years, there have been some great Hiphop producers. For their 20th Anniversary, The Source magazine has named their top 20. I've put the list below. What do you think about this list? And why the hell isn't my name on it?! Or yours?! LOL!

Anyway, I can pretty much agree with the majority of the producers on this list. Who would you put on the list and who would you kick off? Here it is in alphabetical order:

  1. Bomb Squad
  2. DJ Paul and Juicy J
  3. DJ Premier
  4. DJ Quik
  5. Dr. Dre
  6. Erick Sermon
  7. Jermaine Dupri
  8. J Dilla
  9. Kanye West
  10. Lil Jon
  11. Marley Marl
  12. Mannie Fresh
  13. Pete Rock
  14. Puff Daddy & The Hitmen
  15. RZA
  16. Scott Storch
  17. Swizz Beatz
  18. The Neptunes
  19. Timbaland
  20. Wyclef Jean & Jerry Wonder

Mello Melanin, The Hot Instrumentalist

Start making beats for $39.00! That's part of the problem with music these days.... "Anybody" can do it.... Don't buy this shit

Steven Brinkley said...

Half of that list was on some industry political bullshit anyways

Mello Melanin said...

Well, Steven, you sound intelligent enough. Why not offer a comment adding to the blog by saying who you think should be on the list like Mike did? This blog post was like 5 years old? I'm just saying... And what's the point of using cuss words on my blog man???? People kill me how they get ballz online. LOL!

I'd add Warren G in there.

Steve willow said...

Suge Knight didn't make it? He'll be pissed, most of the guys on the list have tried to have him killed.

Steve willow said...

How about 131/2? I don't think there's any regulations stopping us from doing that. Warren G is now at 13.5 on this list, nobody else moves any ware he just slips in.

Steve willow said...

Steven must still be hiding huh? He's a Lil' Ronnie fan I bet. Girls know Steven by Lil' Richard Stevie or Who?
