"oh he's just a producer
Rapper"

from Kanye West (Ft. Jessica Rivera) – Last Call Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A sentiment in hip hop that whenever a producer tries to rap he is outshined on his songs by his beats and has little or no skill with the mic

(Swizz Beatz — for proof of this, look at his verse on Ye’s Lord Lord Lord)

The term “producer-rapper” would later (in large part thanks to Kanye), become an encouraged type of artist in hip-hop, with the likes of J. Cole, Hit-Boy and Big KRIT coming up into the game to heavy critical and mild commercial success.
