Grammy Award winner 9th Wonder is one of the bastions of hope in Hip-Hop these days. If hes not keeping it super real producing for Jean Grae, Skyzoo or Buckshot, he is getting commercial props with beats for Jay-Z or Beyonce. So AllHipHop.com caught up with 9th and when we did, we had to get his favorite producers. For those that dont know some of the name, you will have to do your own legwork on that. The Bomb Squad is mandatory knowledge in Hip-Hop. We gave that Top 5 Producer away, but you have to watch the video to get the full list.
Also, as an added treat, 9th Wonder suddenly presented us with his Top 5 RAPPERS! Now, that was sudden and without shame. 9th resolutely sticks to his guns and seemed to even dare somebody to oppose his opinion. So weigh in, but be respectful of this man.
Hes riding for Hip-Hop! Dont believe? Read his reply to Gladys Knight right after you watch 9th Wonders Top 5 Dead or Alive: Rappers and Producers.
THE SIDEBAR:9ths new label Jamla just released a project with rapper Skyzoo called The Salvation. Check it out!
