I'm SHOCKED at the absence of my own name. I do have one unofficial production credit for the "Geral-Jam". Lest you forget, it was an instrumental track, with my painstakingly spliced Geraldo Rivera utterings, recorded from his late '80s/early '90s daytime talk show. I need to find that tape!!!

"Crucifiction of humiliation" and "Guillotine of embarassment" were two of my favorite Geraldo-isms. "That's our focus on this edition of Geraldo."

Timbaland #1? Really? I thought his marble mouth impression was even better than Dre's.

He's not much of a rapper, but as a producer Timbo is #1 by 100 miles or more.

My fault as I thought you were rating best rap/producers. Brain cell number falling rapidly.

Does Rick Rubin not have enough of a pure rap catalog to qualify?

Glad to see Premier on there. By the way, have you heard his Branford Marsalis collabo called Buckshot LeFonque?
