Bangladesh tried to make it appear like he didn’t really call Swizz Beatz irrelevant, so here is the audio proof.
“I don’t think Swizz is relevant,” Bangladesh told XXL. “I’m keeping it 100.” “I think there’s a difference between relevance and musical relevance,” he says. “You married a lady that’s poppin’ [Alicia Keys], you know it’ll give you a lot of relevance, but you gotta make hits.

Producer, Bangladesh, drops, “100,” with, Pusha T & Jadakiss.
Instead of charging Cash Money for the track, Bangladesh said he struck a deal in which Wayne would do a feature on the beatsmith’s long-talked-about debut album. When asked why he hasn’t put out the album yet, Bangladesh answered, “It’s hard to do when I can’t get Wayne features.” “Every time we come up with a solution, it never gets taken care of,” Bangladesh said. “I just can’t keep really giving them music.”
First Bangladesh complained about not getting paid for, “A Milli,” and now for, “6″7″.
“I don’t fuck with [Lil Wayne]… and you can print that,” Bangladesh told VIBE, when asked if fans should anticipate a reunion come his 2011 release. “Cash Money don’t pay royalties. The Carter III, [is] his biggest album probably because of “A Millie.” [But] you have to sue these guys so that they pay up.”
“This is why Manny Fresh don’t fuck with [Cash Money] because he never got any royalty money. That’s why Baby can go around flaunting this cash, because that’s everyone else’s money… It’s not even Wayne’s fault. Wayne is not getting money. He is given money, he’s not getting money. If Baby gets a million dollars he’ll buy Wayne a Phantom, but that’s in Cash Money’s name.
