Bangladesh Speaks On Not Being Paid By Lil Wayne

Super producer Bangladesh has revealed his heartaches working with Cash Money/Young Money.

The producer told MTV in a recent interview that he has yet to receive payment for his work on Lil Wayne’s chart topping hit 6 Foot, 7 Foot.

Bangladesh claims to have waived the upfront fee that he usually charges artists, just so he could have the opportunity to work with Tunechi again.

“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,” the producer 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.”

Bangladesh added: “Every time we come up with a solution, it never gets taken care of. I just can’t keep really giving them music.”

“6 Foot 7 Foot,” the first commercial release from Weezy since his stint in jail, debuts at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.
