I would say Greg Savage has made it, but I define having "made it" as making a living out of creating music. Being able to pay your bills and sustain yourself through something you love doing.... That's a beautiful thing.
And your beats clearly don't suck
I was raised in Houston, and I honestly never thought of Pimp C as a producer like that....even though he obviously was. When I think Pimp C, the first thing I think of isn't production. Mike Dean on the other hand.....legendary.
Just my observation. ..Roger Mak had it in the bag until he switched up in the last round...if he stuck with the sample based, dusty drums of prior rounds, he may have won...but he tried to do the trap drums...against the trap lord...props to Huggy
