J.Cole, Pimp C, Kanye West, Big Krit, Travis Scott, Pharell, Q-Tip, RZA, Dr. Dre the list goes on and on. I believe this select group of artist are cut from a different cloth of artist. To take in consideration of the time to make the beat and write the lyrics, the rapper/producer are some of the hardest working people in the game.
To break it down even further there only a select few from that group who have had the opportunity to producer majority or their own entire album. Independent or signed that is vast amount of freedom to truly be you and express yourself through your music.
Some of the biggest names in hip hop in this category or has had the opportunity to get behind the boards themselves to produce for themselves.
Big Krit is one of if not the only MC to go on Mass Appeals Rhythm roulette make a beat and a track. An inside look of what that process would look like.
