'6 Foot, 7 Foot' Producer Bangladesh Accuses Lil Wayne of Not Compensating him properly

Rapper Lil Wayne may still be reaping benefits from his track "6 Foot, 7 Foot" from the album The Carter IV, but the single’s strangely named music producer Bangladesh does not seem to be too happy about it.

Bangladesh, who also powered Weezy’s 2008 smash hit "A Milli," had revealed that he wasn’t completely paid for his services for The Carter III track. After initial hesitancy, Team Wayne somehow convinced him to join forced with Weezy again for "6 Foot, 7 Foot," and Bang has now again raised claims that he wasn’t paid in full for the latest song either.

In an interview with MTV News, Bangladesh said, "I f--- with Wayne, man.” He further said that he could have given more music to Wayne, but it is hard for him to work without getting compensated for his services.

He added that in order to get another opportunity of working with Weezy on "6 Foot, 7 Foot," he didn’t charge the Cash Money CEO the fees which he usually takes up front, because he knew that Wayne will sell the album. The upfront fee is an industry custom that is usually given to the music producer by those rappers, whose songs’ aren’t guaranteed to do well in the market. Therefore, to be on the safe side, producers charge a certain amount before starting work.

Bangladesh explained the whole process himself as well. He said, "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. 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."

Instead of getting his payback in monetary terms, Bang claims that he worked out a deal with Cash Money, according to which, he will waive his fees, but in return Wayne will feature in the beatmaker’s work-in-progress debut LP. But Wayne is so hard to get a hold on these days that he has not been able to honour his promise to Bang.
However, Bangladesh is unsure if Weezy’s team is behind the unnecessary delay or the rap star himself is avoiding him. He said, "I don't know if it's the people around the situation or it's the actual person." Cash Money has so far declined to comment on Bangladesh’s new claims.

Bangladesh is now certain of one thing that he will not work with the Cash Money crew again, until his payment issues are resolved in full. A disappointed-sounding Bang said, "Every time we come up with a solution, it never gets taken care of. I just can't keep really giving them music."
