    Some of my faves are the early 90s guys who got the jazzy thing down to a science, like Large Pro, Q-Tip, and J Dilla. Of the more recent ones, really only El-P stands out, especially on the Cannibal Ox album (Cold Vein). I guess you gotta throw Dr Dre in there for creating a sound that stuck around for what seems to be forever.

    Who are your favorite hip hop producers? Oh, and does anyone have any recs on the best J Dilla material? Thanks.

    Pete Rock, DJ Premier, J Dilla, RZA, Large Professor, Pimp C, DJ Quik, Organized Noize, Dr. Dre, Just Blaze, Jay Electronica... others, I am sure.

    Donuts, Shining, Best Kept Secret, Fan-tas-tic vol. 1 & 2 all contain great J Dilla material. Pharcyde remixes, too, come to mind... I have about 1.5 gigs of J Dilla so I am obviously forgetting some bangers. He was also a part of ATCQ LP 3s production team ("The Ummah", or, "community" in Arabic).

    Since most of the rap I listened to was in the 90s and I'm from the West Coast (specifically the Bay Area and Sacramento) and that was the rap I really listened to, all of my favorite producers come from there.

    TC & The Enhancer
    B.C.
    Sam Bostic & Mike Mosley (Steady Mobbin Productions)
    Khayree
    Dr. Dre
    Daz Dillinger
    D-Sane
    Syko
    Phonk Beta
    Brotha Lynch Hung
    Ant Banks
    DJ Pooh
    Killa Tay
    Ecay Uno
    JT The Bigga Figga
    Cricet
    Eazy-E
    DJ U-Neek
    Gangsta Dre
    Black C
    Studio Tone
    Rick Rock
    Johnny J


    Outside of the West Coast:

    Steve Pitts (he produced all of The Dayton Family's stuff)
    RZA
    QDIII
    Esham
    Krayzie Bone


    These are just off the top of my head (I know I'm missing some that I really liked), I'm going to have to think more about some of my other favorites.

    lol Metro forgets premier....the BEST producer out there.

    I like a lot of old gangsta west coast shit, but I wouldn't necessarily consider them among the great producers.

    Also, Hi-Tek is nice and he's fairly new.




    EDIT: with the classics you can't forget Eric B, Marley Marl, and (you guys will prob disagree but he helped create and produce for some of the greatest hip hop groups out of NY) Lord Finesse

    Hi-Tek's best work to me was on Reflection Eternal, lately he hasn't done anything that has really impressed me.

    Also throwing in Madlib
