Jahlil Beats came through the office the other week, and sat down for a quick interview to let us know what exactly he's been up to these days, as he's been a bit absent on the producer circuit. Following the interview, Jhalil took the time to list off his Top 10 producers of all time, offering a reason for each.

For a look into the mind of Jahlil and what he likes in a producer, click through the galleries above. He gives plenty of credit to the OGs that came before him and influenced his sound, from Jermaine Dupri to Swizz Beatz to Mannie Fresh. He gives us a glimpse at his knowledge of the game too.

To get right to it, watch Jahlil's Top 10 breakdown below, as well as his recent interview with us.
