    Hip-Hop dominated Billboard magazine's recently announced top 10 producers of the decade list, with The Neptunes taking the top spot.

    The Virginia duo, which consists of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, have worked with a slew of the decade's biggest stars including everyone fromrap's elite like Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West to pop royalty like Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Britney Spears.

    Fellow Virginia native Timbaland took the second seat on Billboard's list followed by Kanye, Scott Storch, will.i.am, Lil Jon, Stargate (Beyonce, Ne-Yo),Bryan-Michael Cox (Mariah Carey, Usher, Mary J. Blige), Jermaine Dupri and Dr. Luke (Flo Rida, Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne).http://www.xxlmag.com/online/?p=65919

    There are no producers who can say that at one point in time 60%+ of the music they made was on the radio. None.

    For better or worse, to some people (and I even feel this way about my own stuff sometimes), "You're only as good as your last song /beat."

    While I won't say they didn't dominate, because even though they stopped around the middle of the decade and were still far and away the mostsuccessful if not most prolific of the production elite, I don't think anyone could doubt them getting this accolade had they kept making tracks at thesame pace after 2005 as they did before 2005.

    Mad props to them, though. They're one of the reasons I produce today. [​IMG]
