Bangladesh can claim to be the mastermind behind a few of Cash Money Records’ recent hits, including “A Milli” and “6 Foot, 7 Foot,” and although he admitted to having some money troubles with the label, the producer tells MTV News that he’s straightened things out and looks forward to his next collaboration with the camp.
Bang cried foul after he wasn’t properly compensated for producing “A Milli” in 2008 and then again last year after he produced “6 Foot, 7 Foot.” “It’s just hard to keep working for free,” the producer told MTV News in an April 2011 interview, before admitting that he waived his upfront fee for “6 Foot, 7 Foot” and worked out another form of payment with the company.
The powerhouse record label and Bangladesh have since straightened out their business, the producer revealed to MTV News on Tuesday. “We just did some nice business together. They just bought a whole bunch of tracks, that’s about it,” Bang said. “They gave me a song deal, basically, first song deal I ever had, so shouts out to Cash Money.”
Fans can now expect to hear more of the Atlanta beatmaker’s pounding production on upcoming YMCMB releases. “Everybody respects each other, and real recognizes real. At the end of the day, the work is solid, so everybody wants to be in business with each other,” he said. “Our issues, we resolved the issues, so it was time to move on past that and do other business.
“I think it’s really big,” Bangladesh added. “It’s a big step, because it went from negative to positive, so you could show people that you can always work things out.”
