Top 5 Producers IMO

I'm more of an instrumental kind of a guy. I hear the beat louder than the word. No disrespect
to acappella, but the beat keeps the rhythm and flow. It's basically the energy.
I don't blog much but I'll post my 5 top producers that have influenced what I look for in a beat.

5. Amp Live- His innovative and refreshingly energetic beats create a post West Coast hip hop sound. Songs like "Don't Lose Your Head" and "Coastin".

4. Just Blaze - He's been on game for the past decade and hasn't lost any game at all. Notable tracks like Fabolous - "Breathe" and Maino Feat. T-Pain "All the Above"

3. J Dilla - An enigmatic character in Hip Hop. Dilla's love-centric, creative productions, much like his behind-the-scenes approach, have an initially subtle appeal which perpetually grows the more you listen to it. Beats of "The Light" by Common and "Tainted" by Slum Village.

2. Dr. Dre - He mainly took over the past half decade and was pronounced the most successful commercial hip hop producer of all time. After starting his own label, Aftermath, Dre signed Eminem and later 50 Cent, producing for both on their way to multi-platinum statuses. His beats feature an addictive sound which is kind of like G-funk on blast. Notable Tracks like "California Love" by Tupac and "Nothin' But A G thang" by Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg.

1. Kanye West - Yeah, he's a douchebag and auto-tune abuser but his samples are on point. He's been on Billboard charts for the past decade not even rapping, producing for a variety of artists. West proves that sometimes quality wins over quantity. Produced beats like "Go" by Common, "Overnight Celebrity" by Twista, and Izzo (HOVA) by Jay-Z.
