After producer Bangladesh launched his battle over unpaid royalties against Cash Money Records, SOHH reached out to see if he would still be down to collaborate with Young Money.
Promising his issues are primarily with Cash Money, Bang said he would still be down to work with Nicki Minaj and Drake.
"You really have to ask [Drake and Nicki Minaj], I don't have no problems with them," Bang told SOHH when asked if his situation would sever any ties with Young Money artists. "It will really be up to them. That's their camp that they're a part of so if they have a certain feeling, a certain outlook on the situation, that's on them. I don't have a problem with Drake or Nicki Minaj. I would work with them anytime." (SOHH)
Bang also gave an update or where he stands in his battle against Cash Money.
"I have to talk to my attorneys because I don't exactly know the status right now but everything is progressing though," Bang added. "Everything is looking good. It's obvious to the eye, once you take it to the legal court, they gotta do what they gotta do from there. I'm gonna get what I have in the pipeline, it's nothing that the judge has to decide on whether I won or whether I lost, it's just a simple lawsuit for unpaid royalties. Royalties is money you're supposed to pay. It's nothing that the judge has to decide whether it's right or wrong. It's about them not paying me. Right now it's the waiting process for the legal part of it. We're only going to the legal process because they're not paying." (SOHH)
Recently, Bang publicly called out Cash Money Records' co-owner Baby.
"You see this man on the videos and that's all he do, that's what he do--money. His name in Birdman, Stunnaman. He have his kids in furs; they two [years old]," Bangladesh tells Rap-Up TV. "You got money to blow, you make songs like that. You do have money to blow 'cause it ain't your money." (Rap-Up TV)
Young Money's Shanell aka SNL, who introduced Lil Wayne to Bang, recently defended her boss.
"First of all, it's not Wayne. There's a whole system behind every artist so if a producer or another artist has a problem with financial issues there's a whole building, a whole system behind that kind of stuff. Bangladesh is a friend of mine so for him to just point out Wayne I kind of called him like, Dude... but he knows who he's mad at and it's not really Wayne." (VIBE)
