bangladesh producer

Bangladesh is the producer behind such rap superstars as Missy Elliot, P. Diddy, Beyoncé, Tyga, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj and many, many more. His beat-making career took off when he produced Ludacris’ hit single “What’s Your Fantasy“ in 2000. In 2008, Bangladesh produced Lil’ Wayne’s “A Milli,” which became one of the most popular songs of the year.

Most recently, Bangladesh has been hard at work helping produce Lil’ Wayne’s upcoming album Tha Carter IV. In this video, we see Bangladesh producing the first single from Tha Carter IV, called “6 Foot 7 Foot,” which was released a few weeks ago. This beat on this song is amazing, which makes watching this video even better.

Team Teamwork Presents The Good-ass Remixes Vol. 1

Team Teamwork The Good Ass Remixes Vol. 1

Just stumbled across this collection of sick remixes that was released the other day from Team Teamwork, thanks to my girl Courtney. It’s so good, that I couldn’t wait around for Mixtape Mondays — I had to post it now in time for the weekend. The Good-ass Remixes Vol. 1 is the second release by Team Teamwork. Their first was The Ocarina of Rhyme, which was a mash-up album featuring hip-hop and the soundtrack of the video game classic The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time.

On The Good-ass Remixes Vol. 1, Team Teamwork mixes and mashes T.I., Lil Wayne, Kanye, Nas, Talib Kweli, UGK, Slim Thug, Ghostface, Outkast, and others with the likes of Sigur Rós, Iron & Wine, Elliott Smith, M83, Múm and more. The result is wonderfully danceable and catchy. I’d consider Team Teamwork to be like The Hood Internet‘s hot sister. The group is relatively unknown at the moment, but I would not be surprised at all to see them playing at Coachella or Bonnaroo in a few years time.

Mixtape Mondays: Wiz Khalifa Presents Flight School

Wiz Khalifa Flight SchoolThis week, I feel like showing some love to the up-and-coming rap genius Wiz Khalifa. Originally hailing from Pittsburgh, the 21-year old Wiz Khalifa has already shared the stage with the likes of Ghostface Killah, Styles P, Lupe Fiasco, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Cham, Little Brother, Clipse, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Lil Scrappy, Mario, T.I., Nas, and Rich Boy. Back in 2008, his hit single “Say Yeah” dropped to critical acclaim. I remember I had that track on repeat for days. Khalifa’s version of “Say Yeah” was even mashed-up in the song “Don’t Stop” off of Feed the Animals by Girl Talk.

New York University's Nyle Lets his Beat Build in Lil' Wayne Cover [Video]

NYUWhenever an artist attempts to cover a popular song, it’s usually a pretty gusty thing. Cover songs ususally end up being one of two things: terrible or amazing. There’s no middle ground. Recently, New York University undergrad Nyle performed a cover of Lil’ Wayne’s “Let the Beat Build” off of Tha Carter III. This wasn’t an ordinary cover song though, definitely not. What made his rendition unique was the fact that the audio was recorded at the same time it was being filmed. It was all filmed/recorded in one continuous take as well — the film crew had to shoot 30 takes to get it just right. It even featured a wide array of instruments from a piano to a banjo to a trombone. Nyle, who’s graduating from NYU this May, stated that he made the video cover of Lil’ Wayne with a $2,000 grant from the university. His plans for after graduation you might ask? To continue to pay rent by throwing parties in his Bushwick party loft and try to make it big as a rapper.

M.I.A., Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne, and T.I. Perform 'Swagga Like Us' at Grammys

MIA Kanye West Jay-Z Lil Last night, M.I.A., Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lil’ Wayne, and T.I. performed their highly anticipated rendition of “Swagga Like Us” at the 2009 Grammys. Donning a black and white polka-dotted outfit, M.I.A. was the first one out on stage. Nine months pregnant, the British phenom looked as if her water was going to break if a stiff breeze hit her. When a familiar beat started playing, it seemed as if she was going to perform her hit single “Paper Planes” until she uttered her famous hook, “No one on the corner has swagger like us.” Then, Kanye, Jay-Z, Lil’ Wayne, and T.I. popped out on stage dressed in fresh looking tuxedos. Each of them took one verse of the song and killed it. I found it a little weird, however, that the signal faded in and out of black and white. Anyone else feel the same way? Check out the video:
