Preemo-Livin' Proof (EASILY), especially when you think of how horrible the lyrics were but most hip-hop heads have that one listed as an all-time classic or close to classic effort....it was strictly Preemo that did that baby bubba!

Pete Rock-Mecca And The Soul Brother

Marley Marl-Bizmarkie-Goin' Off and Big Daddy Kane-Long Live The Kane (tied)

9th Wonder-Buckshot and 9th-The Formula and Little Brother-Chitlin Circuit 1.5 (tied)

Bomb Squad-Public Enemy-It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back (changed the sampling game forever)

Rick Rubin-LL Cool J-Radio (drum programs, scratching, boom bap, Gritty NYC hip-hop)

Apollo Brown-Apollo Brown/O.C.-Trophies

Erick Sermon-EPMD-Strictly Business and Redman-Whut! Thee Album (tied)

RZA-Raekwon-Only Built For Cuban Linx

Prince Paul-De La Soul-3 Feet High And Rising


Swizz Beatz-DMX-It's Dark And Hell Is Hot

Dr.Dre-Dr.Dre-The Chronic 2001 (this one contained his best package of beats to me, even better then the original Chronic IMO, although lyrically The Chronic along with it's production was the better overall album)

Timbaland-Missy Elliott-Supa Dupa Fly

The Neptunes-Kelis-Wanderland (I know it's not hip-hop but go and check out the beats/production that they gave her on that album, it's completely bananas man)

Kanye West-Kanye West-Late Registration and Common-Finding Forever (tied)

Da Beatminerz-Black Moon-Enta Da Stage

Organized Noize - ATLiens

Dr. Dre-The Chronic

RZA - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

Kanye West-The College Dropout

Buckwild-Nineteen Ninety Now (Haven't heard word life going to have to give that a listen)

Jam Master Jay-King of Rock

Mobb Deep-The Infamous

Madlib- Madvillainy

Large Pro - Illmatic

Kno- Piece of Strange (Will Rap for Food is my favorite album by them as a group but a Piece of Strange has his better production work by like 1.5%)

I'd like to add Mf Doom to this while he does team up with quite a few producers he has some of my favorite instrumentals, so for mf Doom it is

MF doom- Take Me to Your Leader

Mrmikeoxlong....def hear Word Life and Jewelz from OC. Two classics

I need to hear more Run DMC. I've only got the debut, Raising Hell and Down With The King

Take Me To Your leader is a good pick for Doom. I think MM Food just takes it for me

MM Food takes a close second for me just because I love the Godzilla samples throughout the Take me to your leader it just works perfectly to me.

I've only heard 3 Run-Dmc albums and out of them King of rock was my favorite production wise.
