Audio of Bangladesh dissing Swizz Beatz released | Music News

Earlier this week, producer Bangladesh, who is best known for crafting Lil Wayne‘s “A Milli” and Gucci Mane‘s “Lemonade”, made headlines for calling fellow beatmaker Swizz Beatz “irrelevant” in an interview with XXL. After later trying to retract his comments and blame the journalist on Twitter, audio proof of Bangladesh’s diss has been made available.

In a sit down with ThisIs50, XXL writer Chanel Jasmin Clark, who conducted the interview with Bangladesh, looked to falsify the producer’s claims by releasing the audio of their conversation, in which he is heard slandering Swizz Beatz.

“Is Swizz relevant? I don’t think Swizz is relevant… keeping it 100. I think there’s a difference between relevance and musical relevance, you know, you marry a lady that’s popping and that’ll give you a lot of relevance, but you gotta make hits,” he said. The beatmaker is also clearly heard giving Clark his blessing to write his comments up.

Clark said that she only released the audio after Bangladesh threw her journalistic credibility under the bus on Twitter, where he wrote, “this isn’t real bro interview wasn’t even about u. They slick reversed the focus. Inspiration is who you are so ur relevant” directly to Swizz.

“[If] he wants to ‘keep it 100,’ don’t Tweet about me and try to discredit me as a journalist… had he not Tweeted about me, I wouldn’t be sitting right here. I wasn’t trying to make a name [for myself]; I’ve interviewed so many artists prior to him. I’ve never had this issue before,” she said.
