    I hope Kanye sticks to his word and has Madlib beats for his next project…

    I’ll just say this and no diss to any other great producer but if Kanye forgot that he can make beats then somebody should remind him. Its all good to work with others but Kanye himself is probably the best producer for a Kanye album.

      Agreed. I’m tired of this new “additional production” Kanye.

      • marty mcfly

        Even when he does that, those other producers are still making Kanye music so really there’s no point to that (Aside from Q-Tip). The thing is this, Kanye himself is still probably thee best producer of this particular generation of hip hop. Of course arguments could be made…. BUT Kanye is known for going WAY outside the box and thats where he beats out all the other producers. Therefore he needs to make his own beats because nobody else is gonna be as motivated as himself to make his own music.

    I have been telling niggas for minute that Madlib is an underground producing legend in the game. People are starting to come around to this simple fact.
