Bangladesh Buries Beef With Lil Wayne
Earlier this year producer Bangladesh — the man behind hits for the likes of Ludacris and Beyonce — put Lil Wayne on blast for failing to pay his $500,000 production bill, but it seems that the two have settled their fiscal squabble. The BoomBox caught up with the Atlanta based producer, born Shondrae Crawford, who was singing a very different tune at the mention of Wayne.
“Everything is being worked out through the legal process,” he told The BoomBox. “It’s really out of his control honestly. I mean he don’t run the label, he don’t own the label — he’s just on the label. I just got an email from my attorney saying they’re getting the exact number of what I’m owned and things will be taken care of. “
The whole disagreement between Wayne and Bangladesh started over the track ‘A Millie’ which appeared on his 2008 album ‘Tha Carter III.’ Bangladesh alleged that the popularity of the track propelled the album to sell over three million copies domestically. Proving that there are no hard feelings, Bangladesh plans to put together more beats for Wayne.
“[Young Money president] Mack Maine reached out to me not too long ago telling me Wayne wants some beats,” he says. “It’s specific beats that he wants. My thing is, long as this gets taken care of and we don’t have any future problems everything will be worked out. It ain’t the beef with Wayne it’s just the whole label. I really never had too much of a relationship with Wayne, it was just more of a mutual friend type of thing. I guess [Mack Maine] talked to him from jail and he reached out to me telling me Nicki [Minaj] wanted something and, something I already did.”
Hopefully, if these two do end up working together on Wayne’s forthcoming ‘Tha Cater IV,’ they can work out a payment plan to avoid anymore problems.
