Rappers and their A&R's haven't always seen eye to eye. Case in point, GZA's on the record animosity to mountain climbing electric guitar players with record label gigs. In fact, there are plenty of Hip-Hop artists that would make excellent beat solicitors for artists whose selection when it comes to production has historically been suspect [insert Nastradamus era Nas slander here].

Here are 10 artists who if they should ever choose to lay their mics down, would make for excellent artist & repertoire reps. The only criteria is that they couldn't be more noted for their production before they were respected as MCs (Pete Rock, RZA and Kanye West for example). Also, you should be an actual rapper (sorry DJ Khaled).

Let us know who you think should or should have made the cut after you peep the list in the gallery.

    > Unless you were an inquisitive rap journalist or an ATCQ obsessive, before the Michael Rapaport directed do*****entary few people really knew that the Abstract created most of the beats on A Tribe Called Quests first few albums himself...

    Aqua, you SURE about that?? Also, Busta/LONS were not Native Tongues. Closely-affiliated, yes but not officially crew.
