jake one producer feature
Jake One is one of the biggest producers in hip-hop right now, having worked with everyone from Drake to Snoop Dogg throughout his career. In his early days, the Seattle native was an underground force, teaming up with Freeway for 2010’s The Stimulus Package, as well as Brother Ali on his fifth album Mourning In America And Dreaming In Color in 2012. His big break wasa production credit for Rick Ross’ "3 Kings" featuring Jay Z and Dr. Dre, a track that exploded his popularity and pushed him into the mainstream.

In the last two years, Jake One has seen a significant rise in his profile, notably making smooth album cuts with the hip-hop elite that grow on you over time. Recently, Jake One has produced two records on 50 Cent’s upcoming Animal Ambition“The Funeral” and “Hustler”—which shows the year is already going pretty well for him. We caught up with the Northwest veteran over the phone to get his favorite songs he’s produced so far in his career. From De La Soul’s “RockCo.Kane Flow” to Drake’s “Furthest Thing,” here are five songs he thinks are clear highlights of his catalogue. —Eric Diep
