Rick Rubin is enjoying yet another big moment in his storied career. The legendary producer—who has scored hits for everyone from the Beastie Boys to Metallica since making his debut with Def Jam back in the early 1980s—just helped Kanye West complete his sixth solo album, Yeezus via executive producing. And last night, he made an appearance in the Samsung commercial for Jay-Z's new album Magna Carta Holy Grail, which leads us to believe that he will play a large part in that project as well.
A few other artists out there could benefit from Rubin's help in the studio. The guy has won seven Grammy Awards and clearly knows how to make magic behind the boards. So we hope one or two of these artists follow Ye and Jay's lead and book some time with him.
