I think most of us, if not all of us, would agree that Kanye's production is stellar and usually on point.  Where do you rank him as far as GOAT producer in hip hop?  If you're not sure of where you would put him, give some examples of some producers that you consider better and/or rival him in that category..  I personally don't know where I would rank him, but he's definitely top 10, probably even top 5.  Some other producers worth mentioning:

-Pete Rock
-RZA
-Just Blaze
-Dr. Dre
-Dj Premier
-9th Wonder
-J Dilla

i view hip hop production in two halves

pre-blueprint
post blueprint

the style of production is so incredibly different. that album, production wise, with the emergence of just blaze/kanye, changed how hip hop production is handled to this day

if you're going to name producers post blueprint, Kanye is the best IMO

pre blueprint i like premo

but it's really apples to oranges

Just because they're not in my top 10 doesn't mean that I don't know my producer history...
