Top Ten Greatest Hip-hop Producers

The Contenders: Page 2XW


Run The Jewels is easily the best rap group still in the game thanks to the phenomenal producing job El-P does for the group.

El-P should at least be in top ten.

Really rich experimental production from El-P. Arguably the king of underground producers actually - Shwyg

He crafted a whole new sound that inspires lots of experimental musicians even to this day.

23MF DoomDaniel Dumile, also known as MF DOOM, is a British-born hip hop recording artist who spent most of his life in the United States.

If you've listened to Doom, then you should understand the genius of the supervillain.

244th Disciple
26Swizz Beatz

Much higher on this list yo what?

27The Alchemist

This guy is dope he has produced lots of Eminem, nas, big pun and mob deep tracks just to name a few

28PharrellPharrell Lanscilo Williams is an American singer, rapper, and record producer. Williams and Chad Hugo make up the record production duo the Neptunes, producing soul, hip hop and R&B music.

Pharrell should be in the top ten he's awesome!

Should be top 3 after dre and premier

29Scott Storch

Why is he so far down the list? He is the only one on here who actually is a master at the piano. He has the most talent and has the best beats.

Dre is first, right? Well there is no 'Still Dre' without Scott Storch.

Lean Back, Candyshop, Cry me a River are just a few of the hits this genius has been behind.

Scott Storch is a genius. Over 50 smash Billboard Top 100 hits. And some classics like Still Dre, Candy Shop, Let me love you, which are played 10+ years later on radio and T.V.. He should be number 1 in my opinion.


my favorite japanese hip hop producer -

You can feel the soul in music produced by Nujabes. Not the case with many ranked above him. Top 3 easy if you know music.

Jun should easily be topping this list. Top five at least.

Obviously, the best producer of ALL TIME!

32Marley Marl

Should replace Dj Premiere. Although it's hard to wanna do that. But still!

33Mike Will Made It

He just does crazy bits, he is the best. Even dre can't top this kid.

Maybe the most misguided and ignorant comment regarding hip hop that I've ever encountered...

38Mike ShinodaMichael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.
39Michael 'Seven' Summers

Why is he down here so far. This guy is amazing! He is like a classical composer in modern day rap! Ain't no one with SEVEN! #1

He produces a lot of Tech N9ne and Twiztid especially Twiztid's Abominations. - KMJ
