Chucky Thompson Ranks No. 6 As Nas’ Best Go-To Producer

1 of 9
  • chucky thompson
    The R&B/hip-hop producer, who molded his lane in the ‘90s as a member of Bad Boy Entertainment’s Hitmen squad has churned out some of hip-hop and R&B’s most beloved hits. His work on the Notorious B.I.G.’s seminal debut <em>Ready To Die</em> (producing “Big Poppa” and “Me & My Bitch”), and Mary J. Blige’s <em>My Life</em> have planted his status as a revered soundsmith. His work with Nas on “One Mic,” has garnered immense praise for its change up of pace and vibe according to the progression of the lyrics. Thanks to the critical acclaim it’s garnered, Thompson continuously worked with Nas on various occasions. “U Wanna Be Me” on the immensely popular <em>8 Mile</em>, “Dance,” the highly personal ode to Nas’ mother, and “No One Else In The Room,” a slightly awkward collaboration between Nas and Maxwell have all gone through Thompson’s boards. But “One Mic” is what sealed the deal for Nas and his celebrated comeback in the early aughts. <br /><br /> <strong>Released Tracks:</strong> 8<br /><strong>Album Appearances (1pt):</strong> 3 = 3pts<br /><strong>Officially Released Singles (2pts):</strong> 1 = 2pts<br /><strong>Grammy Nominations (3pts):</strong><strong> 0 = 0pts<br /></strong><strong>Top 40 Singles on <em>Billboard</em> Hot 100 (4pts):</strong> 0 = 0pts<br /><strong>Signature Track(s) (5pts):</strong> “One Mic,” "Dance": 2 = 10pts<br /><strong>Total:</strong> 15pts<br /><br /><strong>Click <a href="http://www.xxlmag.com/features/2012/08/alchemist-ranks-no-7-as-nas-best-go-to-producer/" target="_blank">here</a> to see Nas’ No. 7 Go-To Producer, and stay tuned as <em>XXL</em> reveals Nas’ Best Go-To Producers throughout the week.</strong>
