    My favorite producer of all time is Johnny fuckin J. It’s a damn shame that he gets no respect from these idiots.

You have the Top Super Hip Hop Producers like Rick Rubin, Teddy Riley, Dre, Jermaine Dupri, Diddy(Puff Daddy), Timberland, Pharrell, Swizz Beats, and Kanye. Then there're the critically acclaimed legends like Larry Smith, Mantronik, Marley, Howie Tee, Bomb Squad, Prince Paul, 45 King, Dj Pooh, Dj Quik, Ant Banks, Dj Premier, Large Professor, Diamond D, Kay Gee, The RZA, Easy Mo Bee, Irv Gotti, Scott Storch, Mannie Fresh, Just Blaze, and Lil Jon. Not to mention a lot of production teams like Heatmakerz, Trackmasters, The Hitmen, Organized Noize, Beats By The Pound, and A Touch Of Jazz...and rappers who were also ill producers like Q-tip, Scarface, Eric Sermon, Warren G, Wyclef, Andre 3000, and J Cole. Oh and did I mention Boogie Down Productions? Kurtis Blow was actually a damn good producer as well. Anyway, I'm leaving a lot out but I kinda started losing track after the mid 2000's.

You may not have mentioned many of the more recent cats, but man you know your brought up A LOT! And you're right, the category is far too vast to name just five...far too much to consider.

                                                                            • lifestraight

                                                                              @Kory Green The eastcoast didnt fall off RIGHT after the deaths of Pac and Big but soon after yes. Remember on the eastcoast you had Mobb Deep that released Hell on Earth (1996), Wu-Tang Forever (1997), In My Lifetime Vol. 1(1997), It's Dark and Hell Is Hot (1998) all strong, critically acclaimed and commercially successful eastcoast releases. You can even include I Am (1999) and Murda Muzik (1999).

                                                                              But I would say after 1998 the eastcoast started to decline, the west was finished, and the south was bubbling with the like of Cash Money and No Limit although the south had a presence prior to 98 with artists like Outkast, Geto Boys, Luke, Goodie Mob, The Dungeon Family (like a supergroup). The commercialization and hypercommodification of Hip Hop gave birth to a less substantive, more materialist driven version of the genre with lyrical content taking somewhat of a back seat to the promotion of sex, wealth, the degradation of women, and more. You still had your conscious music via Black Starr, Common, and others but they were somewhat marginalized voices.

                                                                            • lifestraight

So the man (Preemo) comes from the south, but the sound was New York from the jump. It's similar to people who want to claim Eminem as one of the greatest rappers or Elvis as one of the best in rock n roll; but both got their styles and sounds from the foundation laid by Black artists.

Today the East Coast don't say much anything dissing any region. So what I typed something wrong nigga this isn't 5ch00l.
