I saw this terminology used in an article I was reading and was wondering what an MC/Producer was. I am not that familiar with rap or hip-hop terminology so was curious what it meant. Thanks.
Traditionally, the producer is the artist who makes the beat (the instrumental) of a song.
The MC is the person who raps over that beat.
Wikipedia has it written as:
"Hip hop as a general rule consists of two elements: an instrumental track (the "beat") and a vocal track (the "rap"). The artist who crafts the beat is the producer (or beatmaker), and the one who crafts the rap is the MC (emcee)." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_hop_production)
