When Jay-Z debuted the commercial announcement for the upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail people went crazy seeing four legendary producers, in one room, working on Hov’s project. The Dream knows a thing or two about producing–“Single Ladies” anyone?–and he certainly has his favorites in the game.
Before Dream’s buddy Jay hipped us to the #newrules movement showing Rick Rubin, Swizz Beats, Timbaland and Pharrell, Dream thoughtfully picked his five favorites when he stopped by to chat all things IV Play. Did any of the above mentioned make the cut? “Quincy Jones, Dr. Dre, Sean Combs,” he says before a long pause to think of the final two. “I want to say Pharrell Williams and Timbaland.” Great artists have great taste, which is why two of the four of the superproducers from Jay’s commercial made Dream’s list.
There’s so many phenomenal producers who’ve contributed to some of the biggest hits in music. Who are some of your favorites? Talk to us in the comments!
