Pretty much this. The producer arranges shit too. Has a hand in certain aspects.LiftthatALLLNight said:I remember an interview where DJ Premier said that he doesn't just only make a beat then sell it...he overlooks the track, sometimes gives the Emcee advice when spitting over the track, etc.
I guess a producer actually produces (has a hand with not only the beat but also the overall track)
A beat maker simply makes a beat then just sells it?

So back in 2004 Kanye wasn't a "producer"?neph27 said:not at all
these days someone like dre or kanye isn't a beatmaker, they're a producer
they more direct the actual musicians (not to say that kanye isn't a musician) in the studio rather then go hands on themselves for each and every aspect

In Hip-Hop, basically anyone who creates/works on the instrumental portion of a track is considered a producer.
that's fine but the point is that they're incorrect in their classification of hit boy as a producerTD Cruze said:Lol I think you have a different definition than most people. Ask anybody on here who Hit-Boy is and I guarantee they'll call him a producer.
