I know this thread has been done before but fuck it.. You can do a top 10 if you want to or whatever.. For me at this moment my all time list would be:

RZA
Timbaland
Pete Rock
Just Blaze
DJ Premier

Neptunes are right there. My top 5 actually isn't really indicative of my overall taste.

    No love for DJ Quik?

    Havoc is one of my personal favorites. I think Mannie Fresh is severely underrated and I wish he had more spots nowadays.

    DJ Quik is stupid nice.

    Late Nite is one of my favorite beat by him and he's not too bad of a rapper.

    okok You know what the problem is with these producer threads? its almost impossible to say. Because If i say i dont like trackmasters for example, and they produced some of the best shit for one of the best rappers ( biggie tracks) but I didnt like most of their other shit after 2000 like bootylicious from destinys child/ or fiesta from Rkelly but I do see the music quality in that tracks, so does that make them topproducers? Well, it al comes down to opinion anyway. I would put it like this:

    Top usual suspects all time:

    1. Premo (legend, influence, guy is a blueprint himself)
    2. RZA ( Rules music from Z till A)
    3. Timbaland ( You know he can Always make fire)
    4. Kanye west ( impact, domination, influence)
    5. Dr. dre ( NWA sound- Westcoast Sounds- Chronic Sounds-Doggystyle sounds-Eminem sounds-2001 Sounds- 50 cent Sounds-and hopefully Kendrick Lamar sounds )

    couldnt keep it 5 -->
    6. Neptunes( overall they can do everything, with every sound).

    top 5 following right now:

    1. No ID ( with Common's latest album, he convinced me, he is at it, at top level)
    2. Hit-boi ( always) quality
    3. Mike Dean
    4. Diplo ( the guy from paper planes.. not really hiphop, but that Major Laser shit is crazy)
    5. Clams Casino ( Im God beat made me listen to lil B for more than 3 minutes, very impressive.

    top 5 underratedddd:

    1. Organized noize ( all outkast albums man, what more can i say)
    2. NO ID ( prolly not the best number 2, because people actually know him, while some producers that produced classics, are now frying chicken or flipping burgers, BUT in mainstream life.. NOID should be more respected.
    3.J Dilla ( .......)
    4. Mike Skinner ( dont let me get started on this UK guy, but he influenced more major people than most know)
    5. Just Blaze ( YOU DONT KNOWWWWWW what it is to be underrated)
