So when Joe Budden put out his conversation starting "Top 50 emcees" all-time, it got us thinking even deeper.  What about all those outstanding instrumentals that the emcees float across.  Surely, the effort to make something abstract as musical sound, is a daunting one.  They deserve spotlight and recognition.  Rather you agree with this list or not, we'd love to hear the feedback.  But these are our Top 50 hip hop producers all-time.
