The Neptunes

The Neptunes were one of pop music's most in-demand production teams when they laced Jay with four tracks for The Blueprint 2, including the hit single "Excuse Me Miss." They aren't dominating things the way they were back then, but the pair is still landing big credits in 2012, producing for Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Stalley and Usher—though most of these were credited to either Pharrell or Chad Hugo individually, not as The Neptunes. Hmm.
