  • Mac

    Lots of rapers on this list, but in order to be a hip-hop producer, don’t you have to produce beats for real hip-hop artists? The name Jeezy got dropped way too many times for me to take this article seriously. The watering down of the genre at it’s worst/best.

  • skunk ape

    Drumma Boy is fire. His work with Pattah is next level.

  • Johnny Headbusta

    WTF, this is garbage pop rap, not Hip hop. think again…

    • Brandon


    • ProdByReidDixon

      I see what your saying but you gotta understand hip hop is changing into something that is less talent based weather it’s for the good or bad….mostly bad

      • LordDiggaDaMicrofoneMutilata

        NO!!!! There maybe a new pop rap genre that appeals to the masses of peeps who dont even like or know about real or authentic hiphop so to speak, But hiphop is not changing!! It’s just that this pop wave I huger than the authentic wave nowadays. Thats what you see in the media and thats what sells records for record labels. Rap has always had a conflict with labels, the labels are winning because now you don’t even need authentic talent to make a hit song now. Joe bloggs accept whatever is drip fed through the radio. That’s what you see in the media!! Who buys these pop rap songs? think about it!! The authentic hiphop fan isn’t even the target audience for labels anymore.

    • BirdBolt

      lmao niga…

  • Kekos

    Where the fck is Zaytoven???

    • Brandon

      He would’ve been top 10, but just didn’t make the cut for top 5. He was definitely kept in mind when compiling this list though.

  • disqus_uqFj75sE3v

    How on earth did you miss out Araabmuzik??? Mad

    • B Don

      Araabmuzik is dope but he hasn’t produced much lately. This list is as of RIGHT NOW, as in 2014.
