Bangladesh Talks Debut Solo Album, Reveals Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar and Pusha T Collaborations
Published Dec 01, 2011Best known as the producer for Lil Wayne hits like "A Milli" and "6 Foot 7 Foot," Grammy Award winner Bangladesh has been hard at work on his debut solo album for a while. Now, he's dropped some details on the hotly anticipated record.
Speaking with AllHipHop, the producer born Shondrae Crawford revealed that his album is called 100 and will feature appearances from Pusha T, Jadakiss and hopefully T.I. There's also a song featuring Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg.
"It's a West Coast theme and it's stupid," Bangladesh said of the track. "Kendrick killed it, Ice Cube killed it. When you hear the album you're gonna be like 'damn that's Cube, he came hard!' and that's what to expect from this album; your favourite artists or artists that you didn't think could spit are busting and really going in because they hear the beat and the beat influences them to go in, cause I never heard some of the artists rapping as good as they are on this."
In addition to other rappers, Bangladesh himself will flex his muscles on the mic.
"I'm rapping on it, I'm making beats, I'm doing everything on there," he said. "I'm not rapping all over the album, but there are some songs I'm on and there's some songs that I just don't belong on so I didn't get on them."
Ultimately, Bangladesh is hoping 100 will be a game-changer.
"I think it's going to fill the void of buying an album with one or two joints on there," he said. "I'm a producer so I'm going to have all hits. I've got all your favourite artists on there so it just makes sense."
The release date for 100 has not been revealed yet. Here's hoping it's not delayed a billion times.
