"Which producer has/had the best peak?"


  

          

We've all gone back and forth about the best or our favorite producer(s).

But I had the question floating around my mind over which producer had the best peak? Peak meaning the best three to five album run.

There are some great runs out there.

Dre - Efil4zaggin, The Chronic, Doggystyle

RZA - 36 Chambers, The Purple Tape, Ironman, Wu Tang Forever

Premier - Born to Earn, The random singles he produced for Biggie, Nas, Jay, OC and others, Moment of Truth

Tip - The Low End Theory, Midnight Mauraders, Crooklyn, and some random singles

Organized Noise/Earthtone - ATLiens, Aquemini, Still Standing

Pete Rock

Dilla

Soulquarians - Things Fall Apart, Like Water for Chocolate, Black on Both Sides, Reflection Eternal (?), Mama's Gun, Voodoo, Phrenology

The Neptunes - Their run during the Aughties

Timbaland

Bomb Squad - Fear of a Black Planet, AmeriKKKas Most Wanted, Apocalypse '91


My heart wants to vote for Tip or Earthtone but it's hard for me to not vote Dre.

Definitely add on others if you like.

The only thing that hurts them is a lack of a classic.
