This year, the Recording Academy Producers and Engineers Wing will celebrate its ninth annual Grammy Week by honoring eight-time award winner Rick Rubin. The legendary producer's contributions to music are infinite with a list of collaborations that includes the Beastie Boys, Kanye West, Eminem, Jay Z, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Justin Timberlake, and more. Thanks to the Grammys and WhoSampled, we now have a complete breakdown of his accolades in the form of an infographic.
"Rick Rubin has said he has one rule regarding his recording process, 'The only rule is that it's not done until it's great,'" says Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. "His contributions to music and to the artists he's worked with prove that Rick is beyond simply great. He is remarkable. We look forward to celebrating this musical icon and his pioneering career, which continues to inspire and climb to new heights."
As the Producers & Engineers Wing 2016 honoree, Rubin joins an elite list of previous honorees including Chris Blackwell, T Bone Burnett, Jimmy Iovine, Quincy Jones, Arif Mardin, Nile Rodgers, and Neil Young.
