As one of Diddy’s original Bad Boys, Styles P. and his LOX brethren came into the game with the likes of The Hitmen, Dame Grease, and Swizz Beats providing the instrumentation for their debut album, Money Power Respect.
Throughout their storied careers, the Yonkers bred trio has gone on to work with a number of respected and notable Hip-Hop producers. But when it came time for Styles to pick one beatsmith as the greatest of all time, The Ghost held no biases.
“I have to go with Preemo, his catalog is just so crazy and he gives knocks to A-list emcees and to emcees nobody knows about,” explained the veteran emcee on who he considers to be the GOAT.
After Styles caught wind of VIBE’s Greatest Hip-Hop Producer Tournament, we asked him to weigh in on the current brackets and the inner stan immediately came out of this gangsta and gentleman. Losing his composure several times, Styles took his time to deliberate and give his picks in the almighty tourney. —Mikey Fresh
