There are many talented and great hip-hop producers that are on the spot light right now, but we haven’t forgotten about the late greats that were responsible for some of the best records ever released. From making beats for 2pac and Lil Wayne, some of these producers are not in the spotlight right now, but definitely not forgotten!

#1. DJ Quik

If you think DJ Quik is inactive, think again. Compton is active! The multi-platinum hip-hop producer is far from over and still producing hits for many big artists this very moment. The Compton native is one of the most legendary hip-hop icons in history. Not only is he a hard working rapper and musician, his production is nothing short of amazing. DJ Quik is not forgotten, not one bit!
