It seems that the dispute between Lil Wayne and producer Bangladesh is nearing an end.
Bangladesh, the producer behind Weezy’s smash hit “A Milli,” had previously aired out gripes with Cash Money over unpaid royalties. However, he is now confident that everything will be worked out. According to The BoomBox, Bangladesh doesn’t place the burden on Wayne. “Everything is being worked out through the legal process,” he said. “It’s really out of his control honestly. I mean, he don’t run the label, he don’t own the label—he’s just on the label. I just got an email from my attorney saying they’re getting the exact number of what I’m owned and things will be taken care of. ”
Weezy is currently serving the remainder of his one-year sentence at Rikers Island for gun possession charges and at press time, Baby was unavailable to comment. However, Bang revealed that there’s hope that he’ll work with the Young Money camp again soon enough. “Mack Maine reached out to me not too long ago telling me Wayne wants some beats,” he said. “It’s specific beats that he wants… I guess [Mack Maine] talked to him from jail and he reached out to me telling me Nicki [Minaj] wanted something and, something I already did.”
Later he continued, “My thing is, long as this [money situation] gets taken care of and we don’t have any future problems everything will be worked out.”
The 2010 MTV VMAs are ready to take a ride. Ciara is officially set to join N.E.R.D. at the award show this Sunday following an announcement that the singer posted on Twitter. Though there’s no word on what the two acts will perform, it’s likely that they’ll give a rendition of “Hot-N-Fun,” with Ci-Ci taking over for Nelly Furtado.
“I am performing with N.E.R.D for the VMA’S,” she tweeted. “It will be exciting 2 merge our worlds together!”
Ciara has been keeping busy promoting her upcoming album Basic Instinct, shooting the video for her high-energy single “Gimmie Dat” in Los Angeles this week. Additionally, Ciara is gearing up to shoot the clip for her slow jam “Speechless,” set to be directed by Colin Tilley (Chris Brown’s “Deuces”).
Following their appearance at the VMAs, N.E.R.D. will be hitting the road with Gorillaz starting in October. Kicking off the tour in Boston, Mass. on October 6, the bands make their way through North America before wrapping it up in Vancouver on November 3.
