When an album fails or a single fails, whose fault is it? According to hit-making producer Bangladesh, it's not the producer's fault.
"At the forefront, it’s not the producer. We’re the last ones to blame. Even if the producer isn’t delivering, it’s still the artist choice to rock with the producer," Bangladesh said addressing the issue in an interview with That Grape Juice this week.
As seen over time, there have been some who blame producers for perhaps messing up their album. According to Bangladesh, the artists have a choice and if they made the wrong one, it's their fault.
"At the end of the day, they have options. If they not choosing the right music, it’s your fault. The producer may give you something that you need, but it might be so ahead of you, you sometimes stick to what you know or think is hot," says Bangladesh. "That doesn’t work all the time. I’m not going to debate on what’s hot because I’m getting a check. So hey, if you like it, I love it. When it comes to making albums, its bigger than the producer."
In related news, Bangladesh (Brandy, Beyonce, Ludacris) is stepping away from producing for others at the moment and is actually working on his own album.
"For the last few months, I’ve been working on my own album. I’m so caught up in that right now, not really checking for anybody else. I did recently leave L.A. and was working with Dev (‘Fly Like a G6’). I enjoy doing stuff like that because it’s out of my realm, you know? More interesting and fun than doing the typical hood, rap stuff," he shared.
