Bass Brothers are an American record production duo from Detroit, Michigan. The duo consists of Mark and Jeff Bass, who are responsible for preparing Eminem in his early days and collaborating on much of his subsequent music. Jeff Bass in particular is considered one of the most influential people in Eminem's career. On their work with the rapper, the Bass Brothers are credited as F.B.T. Productions.

Although Interscope marketed Dr. Dre as Eminem's major producer in order to boost his credibility as a white rapper in the hip hop community, the Bass Brothers have in fact produced more individual songs for him than Dre. The Bass Brothers are credited for the rapper's successful singles "Without Me", "Beautiful" and "Lose Yourself". Jeff Bass won a Best Original Song Oscar in 2003 for co-writing "Lose Yourself" from the film 8 Mile. Although the brothers no longer do significant production work for Eminem, the rapper has stated that they maintain a close relationship.
