You kno what it is..

j dilla is ill and evrything r.i.p. etc, but pete has the illest track record, i mean pete is a legend, one of the best producer ever (ie top 5)

07-01-2006, 08:21 PM
pete rock is top 3 because of his work in the nineties

what he is lacing a few of the clan with recently aint so bad either

maybe if dilla went on he could have gone on to create a legacy like pete and premo, it would have been dope if he found a skilled mc to work with exclusively

but with donuts dilla left the earth on top form

i'm talkin about the album that him and Edo G did and the work he did with One Be Lo & with Rae & other artists, not to mention his new joint which is about to drop soon

& there's plenty more

07-01-2006, 08:42 PM
i reckon R.A.G.U. is a classic beat

07-01-2006, 08:43 PM
what the fuck is wrong with you?

07-01-2006, 08:47 PM
i like pete rock?

07-01-2006, 08:49 PM
i was referring to the original poster

he should be shot just for comparing the two

j dilla was a nerd.. that black-soul-jazzy feel production was played out even before he touched the boards

07-01-2006, 08:50 PM

This one is really hard to choose. I respect J Dilla (R.I.P.)...his beats are soo dope. If he had a longer legacy like Pete Rock ..then I might go with Dilla....but Pete Rock is Pete Rock so he wins this one.

Pete Rock, 90's work and still bringing some heat

J Dilla is dope, but Pete Rock tickles my fancy...:lmao:

Definitely Pete Rock IMO. I dunno why but I really don't feel J Dilla beats... I couldn't really compare though cause I only heard few material from J Dilla. I've heard beats from him on It Ain't Safe No More, and didn't really like. His tracks on Fishscale were average IMO.

Maybe I need to listen to more of his shit. Could someone list some of his best work maybe ?

07-02-2006, 08:10 AM
^^tracks 6 and 7 on 'aint safe no more' were j dilla
how can you not like
them beats was sick, how he come up with those sounds

Good. Could you list some ?

dilla - donuts

Honestly it's too tough to decide. Both these guys are possible top 5 producers if you take Dr. Dre out of the equation, which I do.

07-02-2006, 05:06 PM
pete rock no contest. dilla is dope no doubt, but rock has been in the game for ever. he has a much larger and more respectful cataluge. not to mention how many entire full lenght LPs he's done. Dilla is definitly is a GOAT producer but it's pete muthafuckin rock you're comparing him too. the man is a legend, not to mention hes not too shabby /w the mic eather and is godly /w the tabels

why are you hatin on dilla? common-like water for choclate is dope because of dila. welcome 2 detroit? dope!

still pete is a legend but dilla was dope, too and i think you can compare them both because of the soulful beats.
