Published Dec 16, 2010Earlier this year, rap producer Bangladesh dropped some serious accusations on Lil Wayne and the Cash Money crew over unpaid royalties for Wayne's smash hit "A Milli," which Bangladesh produced. The beat-smith born Shondrae Crawford claimed $500,000 in unpaid royalties and attempted to bring Wayne and his cronies to court.
Rather than continue fighting with Wayne, however, AllHipHop reports that Bangladesh and the Cash Money people have come to some sort of settlement.
"I wasn't getting paid royalties, that was the issue. But recently it's been cleared up and everything that's owed will be paid out and everything in the future will be handled properly," Bangladesh said. "It wasn't me who made this decision, Lil Wayne wanted these beats, because I didn't know what the relationship was."
His calmed-down demeanour is a far cry from the Bangladesh who was pissed at Wayne. Earlier this year, he told Vibe, "I don't really give a fuck about [Wayne]. I can't give a fuck about somebody that don't give a fuck about my situation, I have kids... In the hood, people get killed for $10. I couldn't imagine owing someone hundreds of thousands of dollars and just walking around in front of them. I'm so confident in myself, that I don't need Lil Wayne. There's gonna be so many opportunities. I can create a Lil Wayne."
Now that they've made up, this duo has provided us with the stellar lead single from Wayne's upcoming Tha Carter IV. The track is called "6'7" and can be heard over in Click Hear. Now if only we could get them to team up for a full album.
