Bangladesh, who is best known for producing some of Lil Wayne's biggest singles, didn't mince words when it came to his feelings on another big-name producer in hip-hop. In an interview with XXL this past weekend, he said that he didn't think Swizz Beatz is relevant and went on to explain why he felt that way.

“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. Ain’t no hits. Are you relevant for the craft you’re doing or the life you live as far as the decisions you make?

“The relevance is in being youthful,” the outspoken producer added. “Still being in-the-know. I have a 15 year old son so they think we’re brothers and I put him on to stuff. You know, I’m 34 but people tell me I look 23. He still look to me for information. Usually it’s the opposite; usually the parents are lame or too old to understand or whatever. Just the way I feel, I got so much more time.” 

Bangladesh then backpedaled on his Twitter once he started catching heat for his comments and sent out the following tweets.
