Calling RZA

posted by on May 13 at 11:18 AM


What matters in this video is not so much the story behind Wu-Tang Clan’s “Heart Gently Weeps,” which reformulates the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” but the ring of RZA’s cellphone. His wife is trying to get to him.

Top Five American Hiphop Producers:

(in this order)
RZA
Pete Rock
DJ Premier
Dilla
Hank Shocklee

I agree on the grouping but not the orderóRZA brought out the idea of the imperfect sample but Dilla perfected it on such a level that he might go ahead of RZA. And Premier so re-defined sampling with the chopped up style that started with "You Know My Steez" that he has to move up.

DJ Premier
Dilla
RZA
Pete Rock
Hank Shocklee

Honorable mention: Large Professor

Oh yeah and Dre. Actually Dre might have to replace Pete Rock on the list. It's only that he has done so much crap in recent years that he's easier to write off.

I would replace Pete Rock with Prince Paul and my honorable mention would be Dan The Automator since everybody has been biting his shit since the Octagon album...
