Not taking anything away from Dr. Dre.

But I heard things like Daz - or someone from his camp produced beats credited under Dre. Not sure id that's true or not.

I know Dre forsees a lot, produces and is an incredible mix engineer.

That being said - tracks like WHats the difference, Nothing but a G thang, Been there done that - Big Egos - are they fully produced by Dre?

If not - I'd like to know the names of - and dope work by these so called Ghost producers

Lit Jagger jogged my mind with this from his Daz thread.

Why are my threads being bumped up so much? Now it looks like I'm spamming, but I'm not.
I'm not bumping them up. If you did bump them on purpose cool. If people are
doing it to try to make look bad, don't do that.

The dates on the bump ups are old? It's very sneaky.

They are being Ghost-bumped and humped!

Daddy Alfredo (Admin) - Are you seeing what's going on?

Like 5 of my old threads got bumped up - and it looks like I'm spamming.

You go to one thread and the last bump up was in July.

It's like some mod is ghost bumping it.

I am following the rules here.

Whoevers doing that needs to chill.

You see what I'm saying Alfredo?

Okay cool - I just hope that's out there.

This thread was not meant for bait.

I'm honestly curious if my favorite Dre beats aren't even produced by him and there's someone else I should check for - if that is the case.

I'll scour the net for the info tho.

sam bait thread.

I think it's common knowledge that Dre has had help in the past with production on some of his tracks as he's co-produced a buttload of songs.

Yay! The motherfucking M.O.D Clock is in da spot! Hope you saw what was going on.

I'm gonna check Daz' production.

On another note Daddy Alfredo - I think you're a great ddition to the moderating team at ughh.com for 2 reasons.

1. You've taken responsibility in the past

2. You reach down and talk to the mere "Regular non-mod" posters

So I appreciate that.

Clock you're doing superb as well.

I just feel in general ughh.com has grown more mature - which is better than the whippersnapper days of the past.

dre can do it himself but big budget producers like having like 50 people involved in producing an album. when you think about it- its genius- many creative minds. dre likes to get the new fresh talent too and use them while also training/initiating them.

Dre has had his hand in like 10 classic albums, Daz has had his hand in like 5 classic albums . Alchemist hasn't had his hand in one classic album. His biggest hit is jadakiss we gonna make it that was in the radio for 3 months and left. That is his claim to fame. 🙄;🙄;🙄; alc plays that at all his shows still riding the coat tails of a mediocre song🙄;🙄;🙄;

^once again, observe exhibiting his ultra conformist mainstream tendencies.

dope is not dictated by how popular shit was to non rap heads.

having hands in a classic or 5 dosnt mean your dope. and not having a hand in a classic is a minimal factor in determining dope too. so, weak, one dimensional argument dawg.

but alc has had his hand in many rap classics.

Mark how do you not know this ?

This is definetly a bluestross-type thread.

You guys are leaving out a lot of people like Yella,Warren G,Sam Sneed,Scott Storch,all kinds of people.

The thing for years in hip-hop people thought the guy that found the sample &/or the beat was the producer.Credit that to I don't know - maybe ignorance?

I don't know who produced Nirvana's Nevermind album but I'm pretty sure whoever it was didn't write any music or come up with any lyrics.They just produced it,It's a job within itself.

Having like 50 people working on rhymes and beats for a hip hop project comes from the Eazy E blueprint.Kayne does it too, Drake,lots of people do.

^but why is it ?^

It's always happened.Eric B never did anything,It's just more public now.And honestly it's worse in hip-hop because of the "hip hop producer perception" that's different it makes them inclined not to give writing credit,publishing,basically $$$$ to the people helping them.Which of course is unethical and bad business.

I will say this - I can't take a rapper that doesn't write his lyrics himself seriously.I can still like a catchy song but as an mc I don't take them seriously.

As far female mcs go - I think I've been condtioned more towards accepting that through the Kims,Foxys etc..

another Dre ghost producer - All those Pittsburgh cats.Dre took them from Deathrow when he left except J-Flexx,J-Flexx had done stuff for Dre at Deathrow.

mAdkAp - True. But that's why I respect the EPMD, or Necro blueprint. Where it's pretty much just them. The truth. Lone producers as in completing the beat solo - no more hands in the kitchen to fart in the stew and make fart bubbles fly in the land and pop where Wicked22 djs. Who needs that? Nobody.

However it does indeed work for Dr. Dre.

Nirvana was pretty much them. Or I don't know - Butch Vig was their mix engineer I think who was great - but Kurt did a lot of the work.

You know who's cool and I just discovered? Mac Dre - he's dope as fuck!

yeah I know Butch Vig produced Nevermind,I just didn't want to get off topic.He's a big time producer,he's actually remixed some hip hop songs.

And of course Kurt is going to have a lot to with Nevermind as a finished product.That was his vehicle,There's documentation where he storyboarded the whole SLTS video like 10 years before it came out,I'm sure he doesn't get credit as a director because he didn't direct it but all the locations/concepts/themes it all came from him.

It was his vision,he just didn't direct it.

sort of like the guy that found the sample didn't necessarily produce the record.

with rap it means they made the beat and/or had main input into the recording somehow with other genres like rock -produced dosnt mean they made any of the music but means they had a say how things were played, what effects were used-directed the recording etc.

No Mask, honestly I think you are underestimating what Dre brings to the table.He's one of the best mixers in the world,It's like him and Devante Swing.

Outside of that,listen to the Doggystle demos.The Warren G/Daz versions are fairly different then the Dre final mixes.He has way better drums,adds concepts,live instruments,bridges, etc...

The album probably would not be the 10/10 classic it is without Dre's input.


I think it's messed up when the the co-producer doesn't credit ie/ $$$$$.That's why people here will say Mel Man a is a ghost producer but they don't say Chris "The Glove" Taylor is a ghost producer(he did a lot more then The Firm) because for years none of them got credit ie/$$$.

^naw, i gave dre props above saying hes super talented and can produce himself but is into the big group effort style with many people helping. i know dres a wizard on "da boards"- mixing etc. he supposedly made most of the beats on relapse himself.
