End of the year lists are always a mixed bag. It’s generally somebody telling you who they think is the best singer, best actor, or who made the best album or movie.
But, today the fans will have their say and vote for who the “Top Producer Of 2010” is.
First we’ll take a look at the men behind the boards who had the biggest impact for the year, then vote to decide the top choice.
Alex Da Kid
This UK producer put his stamp on several of the biggest hits in 2010. Including “Love The Way You Lie” by Eminem, B.o.B’s “Airplanes” and Nicki Minaj’s “Massive Attack”
Lex literally had speakers going hammer from coast to coast. Dude banged out Waka Flocka’s “Hard In The Paint”, Officer Ross’ “B.M.F”, Fabolous’ “Lights Out (I Don’t See Nobody)”
This kid is becoming a mainstay on top of the charts. With songs by Eminem “Not Afraid”, Drake’s “Over”, Bun B’s “Put It Down” and Soulja Boy’s “Speakers Going Hammer”
Of course you can never exclude Swizz Beatz from this category. He’s one of the hardest working men in the business. Swizzy was behind the boards on several hits this year. Drake’s “Fancy”, “On To The Next One” by Jay-Z and “Gucci Time” by Gucci Mane.
The Louis Vuitton Don has been widely praised for his work on his album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.’ Stand out tracks include “Power” co-produced by S1, “Runaway”, “Monster” and “All Of The Lights”
The Tampa, Florida trio was very busy this year producing for artists all over the country. Standout tracks included Bun B’s “Trillionaire”, Lloyd Banks’ “I Don’t Deserve You”, Officer Ross’ “Aston Martin Music” and Lil Wayne’s “Knockout”
Big things are probably on the horizon for this producer after his steller work on Lloyd Banks’ ‘The Hunger For More 2’ album, as well as his work with Meek Mill and Mike Knox. Bangers include “Start It Up”, Take Em To War” and “Unexplainable”. All by Lloyd Banks.
One of the south’s premier producers. Drumma Boy did his thing in 2010. Standouts include “Lose My Mind” Young Jeezy, “Life Goes On” 8-Ball & MJG and a large part of the production work on Gucci Mane’s ‘Burr Print’ mixtapes.
People are starting to recognize just how good Khalil is. ½ of the group Self Scientific, he is also part of Dr Dre’s production team. Standout 2010 tracks include “Kush” Dr Dre, “Def Jammable” Redman, “Talking 2 Myself” and “Won’t Back Down” Eminem
Ok, there are your contenders, now place your votes!
