Armed with an infectious sample and trunk slapping bass, Lil Wayne's "A Milli" is not only one of Weezy's biggest songs, but also one of the definitive songs of its era. The man credited with producing the beat is none other than Shondrae "Bangladesh" Crawford.
An Iowa native who moved to Atlanta during his teenage years, Bangladesh's beats come loaded with futuristic sounds and undeniable crunk. Besides "A Milli," his production credits include hits like Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy," Beyonce's "Diva," and Gucci Mane's "Lemonade."
He also happens to be working with Pusha T on his upcoming G.O.O.D. Music debut. That's why we just had to get Bang to tell the stories behind some of his biggest hits. He was kind enough to explain why Lil Wayne's "A Milli" was a double-edged sword for him, how Sean Garrett can make your song tighter, and how one rude comment inspired one of his first beats. *Spaced-out voice screams "BANGLADESH!"*
