Bangladesh has been vocal regarding Cash Money’s business practices in past, and in this brief interview, he tells NodFactor that any issues he had with Wayne and his label head Birdman have since resolved. However, that does not make the “6 Foot 7 Foot” producer buddy buddy with the Louisiana rapper as the producer states that he doesn’t even really have a producer/artist relationship with Wayne. He also talks a little about the craziness producers go through in dealing with artists overall.
Young Jeezy Says He Invented “Making It Rain.” Compares Rappers To Robin Hoods For Stacking Paper & Helping Strippers Take Care Of Their Families & More.
Just wondering: what does one need to do to squash a beef with Young Jeezy?
Beef to me is a word. It’s a cow. (Laughs) You know, whatever. Anybody that’s got a problem with me is probably envious or wants to be me, and that’s how I’ve always looked at it. My whole type of thing is, if an individual’s got a problem with me, it’s either because he wants to be me or because he can’t figure it out; or he wants my jacket. I walk around with my pride and my dignity, because I earned it in the streets and in this game, so, that’s how I look at it. I feel like Barack sometimes – I’m out here trying to make the world a better place, so what the fuck? (Laughs)
It’s been a long road to TM103.
I think the strongest records on this album are “Smoke & Fuck” . . .
That’s my guy!
. . . and “OJ,” but I think it’s most exciting when you step out of your box and do records like “I Do” or the one with Ne-Yo. What’s the difference between being known for a signature sound, and being a one-note artist?
I think everybody knows my sound because I’m me, you know? But, on your fourth album, I think you’ve definitely gotta show growth because I definitely don’t plan on being one of those cats that fade off. It’s always about growing with me; I grew up over the years. The chicks, the ladies like me – so I had to make some records that I felt pertained to the situation, because I do live like that. I do got corporate women that (laughs) all we do is smoke and fuck. It just made sense to me. With Ne-Yo, he’s a dope songwriter, and when I went to him with the idea, and told him the concept, he nailed it. I just did the Jizzle on it. I can always make trap music until it’s over with, but I’ve also gotta show them what’s outside of the trap, so when they get to that point, they know what to do. (more…)
