Well let's see. There's so many but from the production perspective, I have to say that Dr. Dre is high up (Although he looses point with me if the jackin of beat rumor I keep hearing is true), DJ Quik, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Exotic D (hit me as a really overlooked production. Did D.O.C. 2nd album Helter Skelter). EA-SKI is the man. If u don't know now u know. Because of SKI I started producing. Back in early 90's this man was making beats like Dr. Dre with that real eerie sounds added make the beat more dramatic. Was the hardedst beat maker along side Dre to me. Was from the Bay but got recognized more outside the Bay. At least I rembr from Suave House Records, Mr Mike and other production on South Circle (Don't remember Suave House - Eightball & MJG started here) Oh THX is good. Did production on Snoops album and graciously hook ur boy up with one on GP (Golden Rules) on my album Mission complete). Oh Soopafly and Daz of Dog Pound. Go back to Marley Marl, BDP. Like the new ones too like Timberland is tight as hell to me, Kanye is cool,
