It was still his song and his face is on it. And rap albums have their own producers.if it didn't, why did he get his new album entirely produced by timbaland? cry me a river was the song that solidified his solo career which was why he ran over to timbo to produce his second album right after he was about to hang it up. i can't take that dude seriously.
Uh huh. And what does this prove? Every record has producers. Red One is a big time name... associated with some big acts. Doesn't mean the producer is more important than the personality behind the album.since you love quotes and proof.
Reggaeton has its own producers too... like DJ Urba, Nesty and Tainy.
Just because an album has a producer different than the artist doesn't mean it's crap.
