Fool me once, shame on you: fool me twice shame on me.
That's got to be what producer Bangladesh is thinking today, after admitting that he hasn't been compensated for constructing the "6'7" track for Lil Wayne's upcoming 'Tha Carter IV' album.
Mind you, this is the same producer who has complained in the past that he was never paid for the "A Milli" beat either.
"I f*ck with Wayne man. I had the opportunity to give him more music," Bang told MTV. "It's just hard to do. It's just hard to keep working for free. Aint got nothing to do with royalties, but you do work, you expect to get paid for the work and sh*t. You keep getting the run around so it's like you can't just keep giving somebody your best sh*t... it's hard to do."
Bangledesh had to know what he was walking into, and did it anyway. He wanted to the chance to work with Lil Wayne again after crafting 'Tha Carter III' banger, "A Milli." He took a leap of faith and may have struck out again.
He says there are several ways he could have been compensated.
"Producers get paid several ways - like there's different monies," Bang explained. "This aint got nothing to do with the royalties, it's just the fee what I charge for the beat and it hasn't been handled properly."
"6'7" will appear on on Wayne's upcoming 'Tha Carter IV' album.
Should we feel sorry for Bangledesh given the fact he wasn't paid before, and knew the risk going in?
