Best Producers 

The TrackBoyz

Boom! Thwap! Ba-boom thwap! J-Kwon's "Tipsy" was everywhere this year, from basement parties to Busch Stadium, and it all owed to the minimalist inspiration of the TrackBoyz. The beat is raw and propulsive -- "We Will Rock You" with crunk in the trunk. Few songs of 2004, or any other year, could be identified and cranked up so quickly. While J-Kwon's lazy flow was part of the charm, this song should have been listed as "by the TrackBoyz featuring J-Kwon."
