Rashad Smith – Top 10 Beats

Here at BeatGrade we decided to do our own Top Ten series of great producers. This feature is the legendary Rashad Smith. Your favorite producer’s favorite producer. At the age of 19, Smith was providing beats for Main Source, K-Cut, Rakim, MC Lyte and A Tribe Called Quest. With Uptown Records sessions keyboardist Avon Marshall he formed the production duo Tumbling Dice, providing tracks for the likes of Mary J. Blige and Jodeci.

The duo would become resident producers at the newly formed Bad Boy Records. During this era he also worked on tracks for numerous chart-topping artists including Nas, LL Cool J, and Shabba Ranks. Rashad also laid the beat for a remix of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “One More Chance,” one of the few remixes that would surpass the original version for radio playability.
