                                                              A Top Hip Hop Producers list could NEVER be condensed to just 5. You have the Top Super Hip Hop Producers like Rick Rubin, Teddy Riley, Dre, Jermaine Dupri, Diddy(Puff Daddy), Timberland, Pharrell, Swizz Beats, and Kanye. Then there're the critically acclaimed legends like Larry Smith, Mantronik, Marley, Howie Tee, Bomb Squad, Prince Paul, 45 King, Dj Pooh, Dj Quik, Ant Banks, Dj Premier, Large Professor, Diamond D, Kay Gee, The RZA, Easy Mo Bee, Irv Gotti, Scott Storch, Mannie Fresh, Just Blaze, and Lil Jon. Not to mention a lot of production teams like Heatmakerz, Trackmasters, The Hitmen, Organized Noize, Beats By The Pound, and A Touch Of Jazz...and rappers who were also ill producers like Q-tip, Scarface, Eric Sermon, Warren G, Wyclef, Andre 3000, and J Cole. Oh and did I mention Boogie Down Productions? Kurtis Blow was actually a damn good producer as well. Anyway, I'm leaving a lot out but I kinda started losing track after the mid 2000's.

You may not have mentioned many of the more recent cats, but man you know your brought up A LOT! And you're right, the category is far too vast to name just five...far too much to consider.

                                                                                      Parks, from the Joe Budden Podcast, has mixed DJ Premier's music as of late, and on that podcast earlier in the year they were asking him about a secret album he was working on. Rory said Ian might have said something about it to him, and Ian is also DJ Premier's manager. so this leads me to believe there will be a new Gang Starr album at some point beyond the J Cole single. but that's me being hopeful.
