In modern music, it is rare to come across an artist who can do multiple things well. Most pop artists you hear on the radio today are singers only. Their beats were created by outside producers, their lyrics written by specialized songwriters, and the songs mixed by separate engineers. Gone are the days where an artist wrote, produced, and recorded his or her own music exclusively by themselves.
In hip-hop however, most rappers at least still write their own lyrics. Some even produce their own beats. Listed below are 10 rappers who also have a knack for producing quality beats. Whether the beats are for their own songs or for other rappers, these artists are extremely talented and should be respected for their skills behind the mic AND in the producer’s chair.
