To me its Easy Mo B. Dude is basically responsible for putting Bad Boy Records on the map.

He produced all Craig Mack as well as Biggie's early hits. In-fact without him there might have been no Bad Boy records.

He also did some production for Tupac on Me Against The World for joints like "If I die 2nite" & "Temptations".

The guy was also very accomplished musically coz he won a grammy for producing Miles Davis' last album. I'm surprised nobody even seems to mention him anymore.

^ I feel that.

For me, it's gotta be Erick Sermon. This dude has produced so many banging albums it's ridiculous. Plus his style was unique. For me he was like a more rugged East Coast Dr.Dre with all that FUNK.

We must understand the evolution of hip hop Dj, produces and beatmakers to be able to really say a producer is under-rated.

Producers(beatmakers) have traditionally not been in the front or widely popularised unless they happened to also be the DJ and would be at the "rappers" performance.

@ brick,

why u gotta try and make shit all complicated dude ? simply means people don't see them in the same light as say a DJ Premier, Pete Rock,etc. no need to explain now.

D-REX does most of Mapaputsi's stuff, not Mandoza. Syn is right. Gabi did a lot of early Mandoza hits.

D-REX is the shit though. He also did Impilo kaLova
