Highly regarded as the best kept secret in the game, Bangladesh, who has served up hits for a ton of today’s hottest artists, rarely has his name thrown into the mix of things when discussing the crème de la crème of producers. But who’s to say he isn’t – with credits to cuts from the likes of Lil Wayne and Rihanna – the hit-maker is looking to take a solo route in his musical path. Days after releasing his newest solo offering “100,” the man known as Shondrae Crawford, takes us on his overseas ride in London-town. After a studio session with fellow UK singers/group JLS, he hits up Club Aura for that incredible nightlife experience, while also getting down to the tune of his own drums on RiRi’s “Cockiness”. If the single piqued your interest, hit the deck for a behind the scenes clip from the video shoot.
Super producer Bangladesh premieres his first single which comes along with the dope lineup of Pusha T, Jadakiss & 2 Chainz!
A week removed from his disastrous SXSW weekend, in which he was drowsed with beer for apparently lip-syncing, the Chicago native rubbed shoulders with super-producer Bangladesh in the studio as the two worked on some new material, quite possibly meant for his upcoming mixtape or his third solo record. Check out a 17 second clip after the jump.
We all know Baby and Cash Money Records are prone to getting sued for uncleared samples and unpaid money from time to time. Most recently, the label had a riff with super-producer Bangladesh for the problems associated with the latter half of CM’s ongoing issues, and despite all contractual bickering among themselves, the two sides still managed to come to an agreement regarding the owed royalties. Bangladesh, speaking exclusively with MTV via his studio, revealed that not only has all issues been resolved with Birdman, but he also has snagged a production/song deal with Cash Money, similar to what, some may remember the duo Cool-N-Dre inked a while back. He says to MTV:
“We just did some nice business together. They just bought a whole bunch of tracks, that’s about it. They gave me a song deal, basically, first song deal I ever had, so shouts out to Cash Money.”
Arguably one of my favorite producers of the moment, Bangladesh, most notably known for his chart-topping production on Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7″ single, and most recently Rihanna’s “Cockiness (Love It),” sits down with DJ Skee up at his lodge and dibbles and dabbles about a slew of things, some including his 2 Grammy nods, respecting the hard work and grind of his industry compadre 2 Chainz, a pending solo project (which by the way, according to him will feature Rick Ross, Jadakiss, Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar, The Game, Busta Rhymes, etc), cutting records with the Biebster and finalizing a deal to sign Shawnna.
The Diggy Simmons craze has died down a bit over the past few months, but mainly due to the fact that the young fellas has been in the lab working on his next project. Seen here with the banger of a producer Bangladesh, listen as Young Dig delves a bit into his artistic process, as well as the two’s equal admiration for one another. Another emcee endorsing material on the Blackberry — Drake, where you at? Nonetheless, no hate here. Diggy’s got talent. Be on the lookout for the collaborated material, in the near future — we hope.
G.O.O.D Music signed and 1/2 of the Clipse, Pusha-T makes a in the studio visual with super producer, Bangladesh. They share different views of each other as a musician.
Always interesting to witness what goes on behind the scenes, in the concocting of a hit record, which is undoubtedly what Weezy’s latest banger is, in capping off a great 2010 and transitioning in to what should prove to be a great 2011 for go to producer, Bangladesh. After seeing the light of day for a few weeks now, you can count on the track to be rockin’ in the club and on your radio airwaves well into this new year. So lay eyes as the mad scientist whips up something nasty in the already buzzed about 6’7″, which is slated to be the premiere single on Wayne’s Carter IV.
