Producer Highlight – Mel Man

The story starts with the Bulworth Soundtrack. I am trying to find some good songs in between so much bullshit, and then BLAM! I hear “Eve of Destruction” by Eve. I don’t even like Eve, but I had that track on repeat for about an hour. I was like, this shit has GOT to be produced by Dre. But then I find out it was done Mel-Man. “What?”. Yup, it was that dude on Dre’s Chronic 2001. I had to investigate more.

After much investigation I realized that Dre was nothing more than an Andy Warhol of hiphop. He was using other producers and polishing their shit, then signing his signature on the shit. But I digress.

After very little investigation, ’cause shit, Mel Man is like that king that made gold out of anything he touched, i found the West Coast’s version of Marley Marl “House of Hits”.

He has Xzibit’s X, Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” and, well, the whole Chronic 2001, under his belt. I won’t even include those tracks on my compilation, except The Watcher, because this track is absolutely Mel-Man, and I am willing to bet Dre didn’t do even a fuckin minute of work on this track.

I know this is getting too long for all us ADD’s out here… but I GOTTA mention the fact that Mel-Man’s behind Nate Dogg’s “I Pledge Allegiance”, which just happens to have hiphop’s best sample ever, only after Prince Paul’s “Music For the Stetfully Insane”.
Check it out and let us know what you think:

    Did you ever read that article about Mel-Man (and others) breaking away from Dre for not getting paid properly? Here's some of it:


    They never really did much after leaving Dre though. Did Dre block them from working legally via an existing contractual agreement the same way Eazy E initially blocked Dre?

  2. takabeats says:

    i dunno if you ever peeped that shelved Hitman album, but it's got Mel Man's imprint all over it. incidentally, Hitman is said to have caught beef with Dre, which is why it's never seen the light of day.

  3. vP says:

    Dr. Dre actually played the trumpet on The Watcher so he definitely did some work on it.

  4. Cenzi Stiles says:



    Even Osama says it best:
    "Everybody knows your beats are Mel-Man
    You could never do it by yourself man"

  5. verge says:

    Did the god Rakim foul. For some reason, I absolutely believe that and am not surprised..

  6. Cenzi Stiles says:

    also from:


    "It should be noted that although Young studies piano and musical theory, he is not necessarily an instrumentalist himself. As he joked to Time magazine in 2001, "I bought a trumpet a couple of years ago, and everybody started hiding from me". In the same article, Time described a recording process in which Dr. Dre operates is more as a conductor than a musician himself-"

  7. spitler says:

    old news, but you know that in every (other) genre of music, the producer is responsible for the overall sound of the finished product, not necessarily the 'beat maker' as so many people associate the name with in hip hop..

  8. K-Funk says:

    it's sad that Mel Man quit rappin'. his tape from '91 "The Mel-Man delivers" is fire, also his single "Wreck shop" was dope.

    thanks cenzi for the producer highlights anyway! props.

  9. Turkish says:

    I'm reminded of a Snoop Dogg interview from a couple of years ago where he said, in regards to criticism of Dre, that people need to learn the distinction between somebody being "a beat maker" and somebody being "a producer".

  10. Pooch says:

    I was almost certain that the Craig David remix was produced by Premo. It's sound screams Premo, and also Premo name is thrown in the chorus.

    Well I Only thinking of Mel Man's shit a little while ago ….there s only a handfull of tracks he has out ….

    like that he produced at least 40 percent of the second chronic album and also check hitman's work he done mad work with him ….

  13. Anonymous says:

    I Have That "Mel-Man Delivers" Tape. Along with The "Knock Em' Off" (EP). Both damn near impossible to find. IMO he never got the credit he deserved.
