    "Paul hardcastle - rainforest" dude is responsible beginning stages of break dance music. "DJ battle cat" created a lot of songs people thinks dr dre made not too discredit dre I think he is the king of west coast two step hip-hop beats but battle cat is better in opinion because he captures the spirit of the streets more too me.

    Dr. Dre is too high on the list. Where are Bob Ezrin, Bob Rock, Bruce Fairbairn, Max Martin, Dr. Luke , Pharrell Williams?Quincy Jones is overrated! George Martin is underrated!Mutt Lange is Zimbabwean. You should have put Everything I Do for Bryan Adams. Lange has MORE clients in the top 50 selling albums than any other producer. Mutt Lange deserves to be in the Top 3.
