At the beginning of November we did a list that comprised of 9 Creative Rappers You Should Know About. Today we're following up that list with 7 Creative Producers You Should Know About.

As we gather around for a Thanksgiving meal with family,
friends and loved ones, we are grateful for what we have and are reminded of
those that are less fortunate. For many, this holiday season has been marred by
