*Music producer Bangladesh, real name Shondrae Crawford, has settled a legal dispute with Lil Wayne regarding unpaid royalties over their 2007 track “A Milli.”
The beatmaker filed a $500,000 lawsuit against the rapper and Cash Money Records in 2010, accusing them of failing to adequately compensate him for his work on the song.
Cash Money co-founder Bryan “Baby” Williams had blamed him for causing the label more headaches after he filed the lawsuit. But now that the legal action has been resolved, Bangladesh tells MTV that he put his differences with Wayne and Williams behind him and is working with Cash Money Records once again.
“We just did some nice business together. They just bought a whole bunch of tracks,” he said. “Everybody respects each other, real recognizes real. At the end of the day, the work is solid so everybody wants to work with everybody else. We resolved the issues so it was time to move on past that and do other business.”
And Bangladesh is proud of how the two parties have handled the fall out and subsequent reconciliation.
“I think it’s really big, it’s a big step ’cause it went from negative to positive so you can show people that you can always work things out and move on from it,” he said. “It’s better to work with each other man, especially as black folks, it’s always good to stick together and spread the love.”
