p-dr-dre.jpgDr. Dre. I’ve always loved Dre’s rapping even though people kind of just know him for being a producer. I love his style as a rapper. I know it’s kind of random, but I have to name him.

p-kanye-west.jpgKanye West. You have to put Kanye West in there. Kanye came in with his own production, came with his own flavor. He just took over. He started off as a dude making beats and was like, “Okay, I’m going to take over the world,” and he did that. He didn’t just turn into a rapper, he became a pop superstar which is insane.

p-outkast.jpgOutKast. I don’t know what it is about them, they just came with a crazy style. They did their own production, which is just amazing. I think it’s a trend, there’s people who start off with production and end as being lyricists.
