    My opinions .. dont hate

  • http://rapradar.com Blakout615

    @ boom

    Beats by the pound are my fav producers of all time but Paul&J have been doin that “3-6 sound” since around ’91. And Mannie’s sound was more influenced off of new orleans bounce which Beats by the Pound mainly didnt do. If anything I would say Lil jon took bits and pieces from all of em.

  • ’97 Cheech & Chong

    dr dre will win in the end

    just Johnny J should win

    hes produced whole albums for tupac

  • dan_tha_man832

    no mike dean?

  • Franklin d Bush

    where my nig madlib

  • Oj Da Cornball

    Ok, i just see many wrong things in there already.
    how they got Daz against Eric Sermon FOR SOUL SAMPLES?
    Who did this list?
    Have they listen to Dogg Food, All Eyes on ME?
    Not one soul sample from Daz. Dude had nothing but live music and hard tracks. That need to change.

    CAl me stupid but who’s LArry Smith? Some dudes there not even known or put in enough work to be considered. SMH

  • jlabella11

    Would you people read the thing before commenting things like “where is 9th wonder”? Jesus. Its all fan voting, so the rankings don’t mean a whole lot. My only complaints are that Nottz should be on, and pete rock should be #1 ahead of yeezy. This is def better than last years mc bracket.

  • HOVA!!

    How are Rick Rubin and Timbaland not 1 seeds
    Kanye is great but he should still be a 2 seed
    I’m just sayin…………….

  • AVasta

    No Chris Webber?

  • Toya

    Now this is a good bracket challenge because in order to accurately vote in each head-to-head, one has to know what records the two competitors have produced to make a sound judgement. I admit that in order for me participate in this challenge, I would have to Google several of these people if I wanted to avoid picking based on simply the names that I have heard. Unfortunately I’m pretty sure that a lot of people will vote for people based on the familiarity of the person’s name.

  • http://www.game7world.com Fahey

    and what about, DRUMMA BOY, Alchemist, 9th wonder, Vybe, SuperStarO, J.U.S.T.I.C.E League, The Runners, Eminem, Jermaine Dupre…who the hell made this list

  • http://www.mauricegarland.com Maurice Garland

    hollup man…no Shawty Redd either? and Jeezy is on the cover…..ummmmm hahahaah

  • BOBBi_G

    YO FUCK THAT SHIT EDITOR!!!!!!!!!!! E. WILSON OR NOT!!!!!!!

    KANYE = GREAT ARTIST/PRODUCER THAT SHIFTED THE SOUND OF MUSIC 1x

    DR. DRE = GREAT LEGEND THAT SHIFTED THE SOUND OF MUSIC @ least 3x (the N.W.A. sound, the Death Row G-Funk sound, That next level shit that he started after the Death Row era & that sped up next level shit he does for eminem), has the most anticipated album I can recall in my 23yrs on this earth & has put on so many cats it’s crazy.

  • j

    Madlib??

  • supermalt

    damn no Madlib, Buckwild or DJ Scratch?

  • cory

    it’s dope to see the Dust Brothers on here

  • http://slangrap.wordpress.com aqua

    If I was Toomp I’d feel a ways about being a 16 seed. That’s scrub status.

  • Cudder

    WHO THE FUCK ASKED WHERES 40?

  • InternetSoldiers

    Got that, Joe Budden.

    You fuckin’ faggots. I should sit on the roof while you bitches get sniped.

  • The Truth

    ORGANIZED NOIZE!!!!

  • devante

    why is toomp a 16 and juicy j is a 5

  • Fat boy

    I’m not Gona lie i rather have Vibe do a best rapper alive or producer list then MTV SMH lol they put gucci in the top 10 but left eminen out lol

  • kofi

    I might get killed for this but how is Will.I.Am a 16 seed? At the very least you have to put him a head of Polow Da Don.

  • Dashing

    Decent list but yeah Timbo should be a 1 seed. JD should be higher than Trackmasters too. Just Blaze should be ahead of Erick Sermon (even including EPMD days) but overall not too bad.

    It’s def too soon to include DJ Khalil, The Runners, Danja 40, Bo1da, or Justice League but give it a year or 2 and they’ll be on there.

    Homegrown sound should go to Dre pretty comfortably.
    Mass Appeal should go to Timbo in a hard battle against the Neptunes.
    Soul Sample is probably the most stacked category with Dilla, Ye , Pete Rock, and Just Blaze, OutKast all having a shot but I think it’ll go to Kanye because it’s voted on by the fans.
    Boom Bap should go to a Primo in a close battle with Rza.

    Dre vs Timbo goes to Dre.
    Kanye vs Primo goes to Primo in a close battle setting up Dre vs Primo.

    Dre to win it all.

    That’s my thoughts. We’ll see.

  • Brace Urself

    This is a joke. DJ Premier is the greatest producer of all-time, and he stays getting shitted on by these major urban publications. But we’re talking about a magazine that stood by claiming Eminem the best rapper alive, so looking at the brackets, I say they proclaim The Neptunes, Timbaland or Dr. Dre. that wouldn’t surprise me.

  • JC

    How the FUCK is a RZA a 2 seed?!

  • 2Pacalypse

    AND IF THE PEOPLE SAID EMINEM IS THE BEST, WHY ARGUE??? PRIMO ISN’T GETTIN SHITTED ON WHEN HES RANKED 1, ASSHOLE…

  • Fat boy

    @2pacslypse. Exactly it’s not the magazine that voted eminem the best rapper alive it was the people that voted him best alive and shit I’m one of them. BRING DA HATE!!!

  • http://DETROITRAP.COM JASON T

    DR.DRE HANDS DOWNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!

    BUT WHERE DO YOU VOTE AT I THOUGHT WE CLICK ON SOMETHING???

  • SilkCityP

    Since its brackets… My Final 4 would come down to Dr. Dre, Neptunes, J Dilla, DJ Premier… not at all how it would go if they weren’t broken down into brackets… But Shame on Vibe for not having Buckwild, Nottz, Lord Finesse on that bracket!!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/_MelG_ _MelG_

    YOUVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.

    The 2 Live Crew track that is playing in New Jack City when they are riding around in the jeep was produced by DJ Toomp. DO YOU MFERS KNOW HOW LONG TOOMP HAS BEEN IN THE GAME??? and he is still making Grammy nominated music??? Putting him at 16 is BLASPHEMY.

    Q-Tip produced damn near EVERY ATCQ SONG. Just for contribution to the genre, some of the ppl above him have to go. I dont know who cuz thats a heavy category, but 11th place for Q-Tip in a discussion about production is kind of crazy. It still makes me sad that he lost mad unreleased music in that fire…

    Bangladesh = “BOOM BAP”? Ive been a fan since What’s Your Fantasy (8th grade Fall Ball was poppin lol), but boom bap? I think he might belong in homegrown sound…

    They shouldve let VIBE just rest in peace man. No disrespect to Rap Radar and the clearly associated family, but if Danyel Smith could not keep it afloat, what makes these InterMedia Partners ppl think they can run a hip-hop mag? Im sick of vultures circling around my culture. This stuff has to stop.

  • bgirl

    Sucks to be 88-Keys

  • Kiss92

    Damn Soul Sample Section Is Hard !!

  • Kiss92

    Damn No Justice League??

  • Dashing

    I think Dre has to win because of this.

    Classics where Dre did the bulk of the production

    Straight Outta Compton (1988)
    The Chronic (1992)
    Doggystyle (1993)
    Slim Shady Lp (1999)
    Chronic 2001(1999)
    Marshall Mathers Lp (2000)
    Get Rich Or Die Tryin(2002)
    Documentary (2005)

    Not to mention street classics “Phone Tap” “Natural Born Killers” “Keep Their Heads Ringing” “Been There Done That” ” Deep Cover” “Afro Puffs” “X” “Bitch Please” “Lay Low”

    “California Love””Family Affair” “Rich Girl” “Break Your Neck” “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”

    and a host of others.

    No one’s catalog even comes close. Not only has he changed with the times. He’s changed the times. Broke some of the biggest artists in the world. Made hits for the best rappers of all time (Pac, Nas, Jay, Raekwon, Busta, 50, Eminem, Snoop, Cube, etc.).

  • Dashing

    Oh and people are still waiting to hear Detox like it’s the second coming of Christ. Name another artist in the world that has been around as long as he has that has that kind of anticipation for his album….

    And it’s not because of his rapping skills.

  • A.L.C.

    Thanks Vibe for more controversy!!

    Why does Q-Tip have a low seed? Why is Toomp a 16?

    And the kids need to understand that without Pete Rock & Dilla there would be no Kanye & Just Blaze.

  • ATI

    Where the eff is Madlib?

  • BK

    Am i the only one who thinks Pete Rock is the SHIT?: HOP, SKIP & JUMP ANY1?
    I think Dre’s walking away with it tho, that dude dashing pretty much summed it up.

  • http://myspace.com/730amazin amazinace

    1. RZA
    2. DJ QUIK(way better than dre)
    3. PRINCE PAUL
    4. THE BOMB SQUAD
    5. HAVOC
    6. THE NEPTUNES
    7. PETE ROCK
    8. DAZ
    9. JUST BLAZE
    10. ALCHEMIST

    EXTRA PICK: THE HITMEN AND ORGANIZED NOISE

    …..THEY DONT HAVE BATTLECAT

    DO YOUR HOMEWORK HIP-HOPPERS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • L4U

    NO Madlib!!!!!!?????? HAVOC at 8 WTF!!!!!???

  • teejay

    45 king not on there? No madlib? Smh.

    But oh well, they got most of em right, seedings are iffy but they got most of em. I expect dre to take it all, he’ll get it because fans are voting and he pretty much deserves it.

    Hell, dre would be in conversation for greatest producer of all time in general, much less hip hop.

  • Dashing

    Most difficult battle = No ID vs Alchemist.

    Tough call.

  • Dashing

    @teejay the 45 king IS on there. 7 seed in soul samples. I voted for Salaam Remi over him though. His catalog is underappreciated.

  • Tino

    Easy win for Premier…

  • Cannon

    Question? Where is DON CANNON???

  • Cannon

    ANOTHER QUESTION? Where is DAZ DILLINGER???

  • teejay

    @dashing

    Didn’t see it, my bad.

    And yeah his catalog is under appreciated, but he made the beats to two of hip hop’s greatest songs, “stan” and “hardknock life”. It’d be hard NOT to give him a spot.

  • Dashing

    @ Cannon, Daz IS in there. # 13 seed in Soul samples. That’s another close one against Erick Sermon. I think E will squeak out the win.

  • GUARE

    this shit aight.. shout out to dame grease should be up higher.. thats the dark horse though.. he should make some rounds.. he produce that dmx joint the first album the hard joints.. and he that wave nigga.. this a good one though

  • izreal

    Mass apeal? hmmm going by sales Irv Gotti cannot be a 10 seed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/thisismag MaG

    this should get real interesting real quik…im already picking dre and preemo in a sudden death free for all…

  • Tension

    what about Kno from Cunninlynguists? I’d say a majority is a good list but there are a lot of wack producers like Polow and Juicy J.(eh not really, but just shouldn’t be on a list, nor seeded that high for greatest producer) Nujabes,Q-Tip, etc. etc. hell, Ryan Leslie is much more talented than Cool&Dre

  • Vibe Sucks @ hip hop

    RZA wasn’t killing the soul samples in the 90’s?

    Can’t it be?
    Cream?
    Tears?

  • yo mama

    One question…………………..Where is Eminem on the list?……………………..Eminem is not only the BEST rapper Alive but hes made some pretty dope beats….half of those producers mentioned made like 1 or 2 songs that made any kind of noise

  • justbeingreal

    Homegrown >>>> Dr. Dre

    Mass Appeal >>>> Very tough decision between Timbo the King and the Neptunes (Off catalog I would have to choose Timbo) I like the Neptunes better btw…

    Soul Samples >>>> Real tough between Just and Ye (Off recent charting hits and catalog Just Blaze….) I love Kanye as an overall artist.

    Boom Bap >>>> I am not really knowledgeable on it so off str8 face i’ll give it to Premo

    Dr. Dre vs. Timbo (Timbo makes ill hits but Dre makes mega superstars and sells much more albums which is more money than selling singles) Dr. Dre

    Just Blaze vs. Premo (Premo, a Southern cat, made the NY sound and Just Blaze been making crack and is currently working on Relapse 2 so off overall catalog and not off face) Just Blaze

    Dr. Dre vs Just Blaze…

    Whoever produces the better Relapse wins. LOL!

    But seriously Dr. Dre by a landslide…

  • http://RR BJ

    LOL this list is stooopid. I guess Vibe will get the press they want but this is just dumb. Just Blaze is a 5 seed? Seriously? Get the Fk outta here. I don’t even think Kanye would say Pete Rock is a 2 seed. Rick Rubin is a 4 seed? They should do more research.

  • http://thetruthrenaissance.wordpress.com bap2313

    Toughest match ups:

    Organized Noize v. 9th Wonder & No I.D. v. The Alchemist.

    Especially the first one, but I think I’d have to roll with Organized Noize just because of the classics they’ve done for Outkast.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Where my nigga Zay Toven at??? Why aint that many souths producers on here?

  • Dan

    dr dre is the first one listed bra…………..where is my man nottz??
    —————–

    Nigga, get your own fucking username you bama-ass nigga.

  • http://www.generationnextradio.com DJ Pete Marriott

    Four extremely important names in in hip hop production are not on that list and there’s actually more but let’s ask Vibe:

    How come Howie Tee (the very producer to ever sample) is not not on that list?
    With as many classics Howie has produced it’s rather shameful these publications forgot who started it all. If it wasn’t for Howie Tee there wouldn’t be a Pete Rock, Hurby Luv Bug so many more who where legendary for sampling.

    Where is Larry Smith on the list?
    Larry is the musical genius behind Whodini and RunDMC and Vibe forgot about him? Ask Dr. Dre who inspired his style and he will be the first to tell you Larry Smith.

    Kurtis Mantronik Vibe, why is he not on your list?
    Curtis Mantronik was the original master of the chop and screw that so many producers in the south took from.

    Davey D people, can you hear me? I said Davey D you degenerate mofos!
    Davey D was Jam Master Jay’s production partner. Who you think played all them live basslines and guitars and Davey D was a nasty ass DJ to boot.

    Good going Vibe! You just assured me that will never buy your crappy magazine ever.

  • Teddy

    this is hard to do cos theres so much we dont know about ghost production n who got it done on what tracks some of our fav tracks may hav been ghost produced and how much % the producers actually did so this whole thing from get go is bogus but if were jus goin of what we do know dr.dre no brainer man

  • ZDavi

    TOOMP DIDNT EVEN HAVE A CHANCE AND HE’S ONE OF MY TOP 10

  • Kurt GoBang da2nd

    toomp being under polow da don alone voids this list, no to mention the all of the other fucked up rankings that are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay the fuck off. this list just made me mad for a sec, for real lol. damn, that’s funny.

    no biggie, ultimately, though. i mean, it IS vibe.

  • Kurt GoBang da2nd

    …..THEY DONT HAVE BATTLECAT

    DO YOUR HOMEWORK HIP-HOPPERS!!!!!!!!!!!

    ^^^^^hip hoppers? this is VIBE, dude!!!!

    ————————————————————-

    Question? Where is DON CANNON???

    ^^^^^ again, this is vibe we’re talking about.

    ————————————————————-

    NO Madlib!!!!!!?????? HAVOC at 8 WTF!!!!!???

    ^^^^^ do i have to repeat myself? does this fuckery show you why this list is a joke???

    ————————————————————

    I’d say a majority is a good list but there are a lot of wack producers like Polow and Juicy J

    ^^^^^ well, you’re half right…

    ————————————————————

    dj pete marriott:

    though i do agree with you 110%, unfortunately these fools didn’t feel there was a need to include the foundation of all this shit, which further proves my point that this list ain’t sheeeit…

  • http://twitter.com/topbananas48 TopBananas

    This sh^t so disproportionate. And they aren’t even giving certain people a chance. And @Kurt GoBang da2nd said it best, “…i mean, it IS vibe.” F^ck you expect. Sh^t ain’t nothing but a waste of time.

  • CP

    1. I’m extremely sad that you dont know much about the “BOOM BAP” bracket, which is probably the best all around bracket.
    2. Pete Rock shouldnt be a 2??? Are you kidding me? He should have the 1 seed in that bracket.

    It should be Dre vs. Premier in the finals, but Premier should get the nod. I love Dre, but look at Premier’s catalog, not only did he have bangers with Gang Starr, he produced GREAT CLASSIC records for almost every top MC. Big Daddy Kane, Nas, Biggie, Jay-Z, Rakim, Kool G, KRS1, Big L, Jeru, Ice-T, Snoop, Fat Joe in his prime, MOP, Royce, O.C., Mos def……(out of breath), Common, CNN, Group Home, The Lox, Masta Ace, Edo G, AZ, Ludacris…anyway you get the point…Premier is the 5th element in hip-hop.

    This is totally just my opinion but real hip-hop heads will tell you the same thing.

    what ppl r forgetting, too that this is publication for the mass public! all these names will not ring a bell to the average hip-hop fan who be on the internet and buying the magazine. a lot of names yall are mentioning, i am like w^t^f?

    they have 2 use FAMILIAR PPL, GUYS!

    The best producers aren’t even hip-hop producers if you think about it.
    Babyface
    David Foster
    Quincy Jones
    Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis
    Prince
    Norman Whitfield
    etc…Do your research on producing…

  • Interscope Employee

    this shit gonna be a MESS!! I can see it already….

    but yeah, there’s some TOP NOTCH producersssss. crazy

  • The Only correct Answer.

    Timbaland.. The Most innovative. Also dominated Hip-Hop, RnB & then Pop..

    Changed radio MANY times from 96 on … and STAYED on top. From Aaliyah & Missy to Jay-Z and Justin.

    Fact is he leads.. most others follow. Timeless sound.

  • tictoc

  • Big G

    Swizz Beatz ahead of Diddy and The Hitmen? are you kidding me? man if you look at The Hitmen’s production cred it’s way ahead of anything Swizz Beatz has and will ever do

  • Big G

    and Will.I.Am as one of the greatest producers in hip hop history? come on. you can hardly call what will.i.am does as hip-hop..that’s just not his field

  • Big G

    The Bomb Squad should be ahead of mannie fresh too..produced Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKas’ most wanted, some of Slick Rick’s Great adventures of Slick Rick, for Run-DMC, and Public Enemy. come on people.

  • Dashing

    @DJ Q, Easy Mo Bee IS in there. # 12 seed in Boom bap section. Ya’ll need to really read this thing before criticizing. That’s the third person I’ve had to correct.

    The list overall is pretty solid. There were a few oversights and a few people may have been seeded incorrectly, but overall it’s well done.

    Soul sample is by far the most stacked category. With the exception of Cool and Dre and The Heatmakers, all of those producers have made certififed classics.

  • The Noydd

    Why the fuck is Bangladesh in the Boom Bap bracket?

    Who the fuck are the Dust Brothers???

    Other than that ehhh good shit.

    Someone needs to have the shiit slapped out of them for putting Dilla as a 6 seed. Where’s Black Milk, Madlib, Oh No, RJD2, i mean seriously, this list is WACK!

  • Consignment

    1.) Neptunes seeded higher than Timbaland??? GTFOH x2. Vibe is buggin.

    2.) Easy Moe Bee seeded 12??? Vibe is buggin!!

    3. Scott Storch seeded ahead of Irv Gotti??? Vibe is trash!!!

  • papology

    What an idiotic idea, let alone comparisings. Is this what we have come to?

    Somebody needs to get fired.

    Yo, some of u need to STOP BITCHIN’ fo’ real. @ the end of the day it doesn’t matter who made the list or not. Dr. Dre is the MJ of production(when it comes to hip hop) and everybody else isn’t point blank.

  • On the Real

    @ Da Business,

    It’s not our fault you only know mainstream music. Clown asss ni66a!

  • Da Business

    @ the real

    nah n!99@, it ain’t my fault that u think producing is just about making beats.

  • Proto

    J DILLA #1 in all these categories and any other 1’s yall can come up with!! What the hell is goin on here…

  • Nose

    None of u fags was even honorin Dilla when he was still alive.. now everybody on here oooooh he’s #1 hands down over everybody why didn’t u buy the records then?!

  • Tino

    People need to get off of Dilla’s dick, its amazing that as soon as someone dies everyone jumps on the wagon.

    We know you like sexin it with ni66as in the bathroom at the club. All you hear is the bass. That’s why you like Dre. You bob ya head while you givin’ it. You d!ck in the booty asss ni66a!

  • Da Business

    @ the real

    I’m not even goin’ to go there w/ u bruh, it’s clear to me that you’re a youngin’ who’s knows jack shit about what producing really is.

  • GtownHoyasDC

    Oh, Lord. Another f’d up list Vibe is making. J-Dilla #6 is appalling….
    The Neptunes with a higher seed than RZA is kinda crazy, too. I could go on about this list…

    Organized Noise should take their bracket, though. Nothing against Dilla. But listen to Kast’s first 3 albums and Goodie Mob’s first two……..

  • budbass19

    hold up!!!! PEOPLE!!!!! chill out…..everyone cant make the list….ok im young…19…but i PROMISE my knowledge of the hip hop game can kill many of yall “old skool” niggas. imma agree with yall and say yea…hip hop lacking and is falling off with these new cats…but yall unfiar too. example. it makes me mad how ppl say biggie and tupac the best of all time…tru. they up there. BUT one day somebody will top them. its unfair for rappers to have to chase a ghost. and these producers….gotta look at what they did for the game. even premier said ye made soul sampling cool again….but yea. thats all i gotta say

  • On the Real

    @ Da Business

    You’re the young boy here. I know and appreciate real lyrical hip hop. I bump Immortal Technique, MF DOOM, Aloe Blacc, Mos Def, Rhymefest, OH No and shit like that. You like that booty bassment Dr. Dre “In the club/Go Shawty its your burfday” bullshit!. Like I said, you a dick in the booty ass ni66a.

    This is grown folks business right here. Fall back clown!

    Most of the producer that are the number one seed ive heard of except fot hte neptunes and I have never even heard of the bom bap therefore those producer names weren’t familiar to me at all. Kanye I’m not a fan of but I can understand why he’s at the top of the bracket that he is
