The showdown: Kanye West vs. Just Blaze
« on: January 14, 2004, 10:58:36 AM »
Who's the best producer.. ??
Who's the king of ROC-beats.. ?

IMO, Kaneezy is far better than Just Bleezy..

Just Blaze puts out 2 different types of beats: the one type being club-beats, many of them sound pretty similar, and many of them "borrows" Rockwilder or/and Timbaland effects.
His other style is sampled "soul"-beats.. they do sound perfect for hiphop, but after listening to "Jay-Z - The Black Samples", you kinda realize that all Just Blaze does, is speeding up the instrumental and add some bass and maybe some effects to it.

Kanye uses samples as well, but he's more creative with it, he creates a totally new track around the sample.
Overall, I think Kanye is more creative than Blaze, and some times Kanye makes it sound like he's using a sample, when he really made the beat from scratch.

This is the reason why I think Kanye is better than Blaze..
After reading this you may think I'm anti-Blaze, but I do like a lot of his shit, he's just not as creative as Kaneezy, and his club-hits gets played out pretty quick.

Just Blaze makes rap.
Kanye makes music. Been a while since I've heard Hip Hop as good as this because of him.

As much as I like Kayne, I went with "equally dope" because Just Blaze has enough hits under his belt aswell.

For me Kanye is far ahead of Just Blaze just cause like Jome said he's much more creative with the samples that he uses.

Those guys who did the majority of the beats on the Dipset album (Heatmakerz i think), basically did Just Blaze's style better than him, its just that they don't have as many sucessful hits under their belt as he does.

Kanye. But, gotta give credit to Just Blaze. "Round Here" is a sick beat.

Like I said, check out the "Black album samples" album, and you'll see how Blaze came up with "December 4th" and "P.S.A.", he didn't do much at all with those samples.

id have to say kanye

Yes you can.
If you don't count Blaze's club-tracks, his style is very similar to Kanye.
E.g. not talking about "Pump it up", "Hovi baby", "Flipside", etc.



Here's the tracks they produced for those who wanna compare:

As of right now, Kanye. Just Blaze is still my favorite producer though, even if his shit on Bleek's album was a a letdown. He's definitely the king of ROC-beats though, since Kanye basically just does 1 or 2 tracks max on each of their (Roc-A-Fella)'s albums.
