Dre’s role as a producer is invaluable. He has been instrumental in launching the career of numerous hip-hop and rap artists including, Eminem, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, Xzibit, The Game, and Kendrick Lamar. He has popularized the genre of West Coast G-Funk to the world and given the music fraternity a new style of rap.
He was known as a central figure in the Houston hip hop community and was the creator of the now-famous chopped and screwed DJ technique.
His creation led to his nickname of "The Originator".
Texas governor Rick Perry honored him by making him an official Texas Music Pioneer
His distinct musical styling has influenced countless rap acts around the world.
No producer dominated hip-hop of the late 1990s and early 2000s more than Timothy "Timbaland" Mosley
Timbaland was developed his signature sound: snaking syncopated drum patterns, skittering hi-hats, plinking keyboards and strong, glutinous bass.
Timbaland's production credits include work with Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Jay Z, Nas, Ludacris, Bubba Sparxxx, Madonna, Rihanna, OneRepublic, Brandy, Drake, Rick Ross and others.
From mid 90’s until the early 2000, West was involved in small time music production projects. He made music for the local artists and was also a ghost producer for Deric ‘D-Dot’ Angelettie.
West got the much awaited opportunity in 2000 when he became the producer for artists on Roc-A-Fella Records. He produced hit singles for famous singers like: Common, Ludacris, Cam’Ron, etc.
It was in 2001, world renowned rapper and entertainment business tycoon Jay-Z asked West to produce many tracks of his hit album ‘The Blueprint’.
West's hot streak as a producer continued apace with his "chipmunk soul" style—sped-up vocal snippets of old R&B records—inspired, according to West, by the RZA's production for the Wu-Tang Clan and their associates. His signature sound helped make him one of the most in-demand producers.
He is best known for producing trap beats for several Southern hip hop artists
His best known singles include uch as "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd, "Pour It Up" by Rihanna, and "Formation" by Beyoncé.
