Philly's Chad "Wes On Track" Hamilton has the dubious distinction of being the only producer who's landed dozens of tracks on Roc-A-Fella releases without Jay-Z ever gracing one of his beats. Of course, he started producing for the label pretty late in the dynasty's history, but it's kind of a shame that the Young Gunz got so many of his best tracks. "Parade" in particular was the one that first made me really sit up and take notice, and "Want Me Back" is pretty great despite being only the 2nd best recent use of that sample after Just Blaze's beat for Usher's "Throwback." I heard that Chad is doing some production on the Bossman album, I'm looking forward to hearing that.

Previously in the Producer Series:
