(This is a title that nobody ever mentions. Strange, considering how much dope beatmakers came from there.)

My pick: N.O. Joe

I'm not so deep in the producing game, and don't know many of the South producers by names, I don't follow that scene so much. But off the head, I only know Organized Noise (ONP), they've produced a lot of OutKast's shit and Dungeon Family too.

Jeez, under which rock have you been living for past 15 years?

Three 6 Mafia (DJ Paul & Juicy J)
Jazze Pha
Andre 3000
DJ Toomp
Mannie Fresh
Pimp C
Scarface


... just to name few most well-known.

I've been listening to lots of Southern shit lately - and I must admit that they were always completely on par with New York producers as of quality. You just gotta listen to right stuff.

Last UGK's album is a good starting point.

I have that album, it's pretty good. Next Up is a great song. BDK ripped it.

I've only been listening to OutKast out of the south. And I consider them the 2nd best hip hop group/ best duo of all time.

Recent years, I've been listening to a lot of southern shit, but when I got onto lyricism, and more "hard-core" hip hop... I kinda "grew out" of the southern scene.

KLC....possibly the most important producer in souther rap along with Mannie Fresh.

Honorable mention: Mo B. Dick.

mannie fresh is horrible from what i've heard (not too much though, prove me wrong if y'all want)..

the beats i've heard by DJ Toomp have impressed me, haven't heard that much from him either but the ones i've catched have been fire. hardly listen to anything from the south besides some Scarface, Outkast and Cee-Lo though so it's not really something I should be discussing :P

KLC and The Medicine Men(formerly called Beats by the Pound) are good.

DJ Premier.welll since is is from houston i will have to agree...other than him the medicine men(beats by the pound) come to mind as well any no limit album before 1998 is a banger beat wisei imo cus of them dudes...klc especially

It's hard to categorize Premo, or 9th Wonder as southern. I mean, they are, but they don't make anything but east coast soundin tracks.

Finally someone who gets it.



I'm not such a fan of Beats by the Pound, although I must admit that they did a shitload of banging beats. They didn't actually have their sound, they were more into xeroxing whatever was hot at the moment.

Mannie Fresh is much higher in my book - he could really be THE most prolific producer of all time.

RZA lives in L.A. is he westcoast now?

Primo is from the south.

mannie fresh i like what happened to that boy is fresh.....and so is i need it in my life by juvenile.....i know this isa wu-tang board so every1's biased about crunk but sum1 needs to name little johnathan aka lil jon....ummm dudes from texas have nice beats like big yella (i think big is in his name or dj but w/e) but the fact that everyones naming producers from the south that dont really make southern beats kinda irks me (never have said irk in my life)....to me its not southern if it doesnt have a hint of crunk in it.

(Explanation: he just said that Scarface, Geto Boys, OutKast, Goodie Mob and more or less whole Dungeon Family, matter of fact, all Southern rap before 1999 don't represent South.)




I'm getting tired of these noobs with prejudices. If sucker ever listened to older shit without being prejudiced, he'd maybe noticed that South ALWAYS had distinct flavor.

Oh fuck. Why bother.

damn who said mannie fresh garbage? ... dude gets my vote for atleast top 5 ... dude did everything for cash money and their shit always sold ... 400 degreez is fuckin banging and so underrated

but there's kind of no point discussing anything southern here since people have proven they don't know ... or more to the point, they don't wanna know about the south
