Producer Bangladesh isn’t happy with the folks at Cash Money Records again. The producer of Lil’ Wayne‘s latest single, “6 Foot 7 Foot” says that he has yet to be compensated for his work on the single.
Bangladesh also produced Lil’ Wayne’s monster 2008 single “A Milli,” and claimed that he was never paid for the beat.
“I f*ck with Wayne, man; I had the opportunity to give him more music,” Bangladesh told MTV News. “It’s just hard to do. It’s just hard to keep working for free.”
Bangladesh says he waived an upfront fee for the track in exchange for the chance to make another classic record with Weezy. “It’s not about the money, it’s not about me charging him for the beat, because he is Lil Wayne; he’s gonna sell albums,” he said. “You only really charge people that you think is not gonna really sell too much, so you want to get your money off top. You might not get it on the back-end because albums don’t sell no more.”
In exchange for the free beat, Bangladesh says that Weezy agreed to record a verse for Bangladesh’s upcoming album. When MTV asked why Bangladesh’s album had yet to be released, he said “It’s hard to do when I can’t get Wayne features… I don’t know if it’s the people around the situation or it’s the actual person.”
Bangladesh says he will not work with any of Cash Money’s artists again until this matter is settled. “Every time we come up with a solution, it never gets taken care of,” Bangladesh said. “I just can’t keep really giving them music.”
