Swizz Beatz Responds To Bangladesh, Calls Him A "Clown"

Swizz Beatz responds to Bangladesh's claims that he's not relevant.

Earlier today, producer Bangladesh discussed the issue of remaining relevant in Hip Hop, naming Swizz Beatz as an artist that he feels doesn't fit in that category. During an interivew with ThisIs50.Com, Swizzy responded to the claim, calling Bangladesh a "clown" and listing his accomplishments as a sign that he's at the top of his game.

"Y’all going to start this relevant shit?" said Swizz. "Don’t let this clown pump you up with this relevant. We at this video shoot right now. But you know anyways man, it’s all positive energy from me. I can’t get in that zone. I’m just happy to be here. Been doing this since 1998, 300 million-something sold. Domestically." 

Bangladesh, who has produced hits for Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, originally stated, "I think there’s a difference between relevance and musical relevance,” he noted. “You married a lady that’s poppin’ [Alicia Keys], you know it’ll give you a lot of relevance, but you gotta make hits. Ain’t no hits. Are you relevant for the craft you’re doing or the life you live as far as the decisions you make?"

Watch the interview below.

    I meant to say he Hasn't Changed his sound Much since Post Ruff Ryders

  • Come On

    I have to agree with Bangledash everybody gets upset when the truth is told, but I don't think of Swizz Beats as an artist at all!, he's a producer. Just Because you made and a couple Solo albums doesn't make you a real artist. Secondly He is telling the truth again Swizz Beats is not relevant he hasn't been for a while. He's only on the scence because he "LUCKED OUT" and got Alicia Keys. He has changed his sound since after the Ruff Ryders album, an his songs all sound similar with one-line Hooks that are constantly repeated throughout his songs that get annoying and old fast!!!! Swizz is living off his past and is well OVERRATED!!! and I don't buy the 300 millon B.S even in his prime and the Ruff Ryders prime that would tally even close to that I want to see PROOF!!!!

  • Danko The Don

    I actually am a Clown and Im very offended by this, I dont want Bangladesh associated with my movement. I would like to see him stay relevant in the clown game, not gonna happen. Its a cold world out here ever since Bozo passed, one time for the big homie, aint nobody touchin his genius, he like the clown version tupac, except more in tune with society.

  • Decatur ATL Boi

    Bangladesh sounds like a ho, keep your mouth off of other people's accomplishments and try to get to 300 million sold.Domestically. Isn't this the dude that was crying becuase Lil' Wayne and Baby didn't feel like paying his punk azz? Dude got a few hits, now he thinks he's the Don. Negro please. Work with some greats first, step you game up first fool. Ol Fool azz.

  • MUTHADON

    I can't hate on anybody's opinion,to each is own.

  • MUTHADON

    How he gon say something about Swizz beatz? This guy is a monster with the TRACKS. He produced almost the entire DMX "Flesh of my flesh,Blood of my Blood"LP back in "99". That album went double platinum in less than 5-6 weeks.. That album has sold over 5 million copies.. These new guys need to do their research before they speak upon O.G's... Swizz still makes original work,what's wrong with that ?smh

  • Anonymous

    BOTH are irrelevant and really not that good to begin with. Also Swizz, STOP RAPPING YOU SUCK.

  • Phil A

    Like I stated in a previous article, I'm not a fan of either producer but Swizz Beats gets the edge in this battle. He has gained a lot more success over his career than Bangladesh. With that being said, I hate when accomplished artists (ex. Nas, Jay-Z) or talented up and coming artists (ex.Kendrick Lamar) experiment with producers that focus on producing club bangers. It just doesn't work. I still feel like Nas's inclusion of Summer on Smash on his latest album was forced by his record label.

    • Phil A.

      I'm not going to lie, I am slightly biased towards artists like Nas and I like to give them the benefit of the doubt. The reason I stated that the record label may have pushed Nas to include the Swizz track onto his album is because record labels have a tendency to do that and it simply does not fit with the theme of the album. They essentially control their artists but thank goodness they allowed him to be creative with all his tracks except, of course, Summer on Smash.

      Phil A - Swiss gets "the edge" LMFAO It's no contest - SWISS is a fucking legend, his catalogue speaks for itself

      Yet if Summer on Smash was on an Eminem album you'd blame him and not the label. I hate how hip hop heads play favorites.

    Can't we all just agree that they are both dreadful producers? Bangladesh is a one beat wonder and people over-rate Swizz' older stuff. He was an OK producer around dope artists.

      "DMX joined Ruff Ryders when it started back in 1988." Well if that ain't gonna win bullshit comment of the day then some abomination has to come on this website...

    • Anonymous

      @hjk Wrong. Obviously Swizz was connected to Ruff Ryders but dude was a fresh producer when Ruff Ryders popped off. He never even was considered to produce for DMX and them cuz he was still a developing producer. Also Swizz Beatz was 10 years old when Ruff Ryders started. DMX joined Ruff Ryders when it started back in 1988.

    • hjk

      he didn't get "caught up" with Ruff Ryders, HE was the FIRST ONE signed to RR, when DMX and others was not signed then... Ruff Ryders label which was founded by Swizz Beatz' uncles, get your facts straight but I must agree that they are overrated a little bit, but Swizz ain't bad

    • Anonymous

      Swizz has done nothing for hip hop, absolutely nothing. He was just lucky enough to get caught up with the Ruff Ryder movement (Which is over-rated in my opinion anyway).

  • Jacc

      Anonymous, Agreed. Swizz, like all these other clowns, act like HE has sold 300 million albums when his own albums went double wood like a muhfucka. Just got you got featured on some high selling albums, does not mean they bought it for you. Stop trying to Bernie Madoff the numbers, you aint no MJ. Just cause you tainted the vagina of a famous singer doesnt make you good.

    Swizz IS relevant now and that can't be denied. No, I didn't know him at all until he got with Alicia. Truth hurts.

      Quite confusing relevant and popular, those are 2 different words and concept. As a producer artist demand your services off of your relevance not your popularity. is Swiss still producing for big names like Nas? (i dont care is summer on smash was a lame track), welcome to the jungle etc. He might have become popular getting with Alicia but he has always been relevant.

    • Anonymous

      You didn't know him at all until he got with Alicia? Where you from? KABUL?

    • What is "relevant" exactly?

      Oh, well most of us here oddly know Swizz when he produced hits (now they ain't all that major but um...) DMX - Ruff Ryders Anthem/Party Up/What's My Name/etc. Jay-Z - Money Cash Hoes/On To the Next One/Welcome to the Jungle/etc. Beyonce - Check On It/Get U Bodied/Upgrade U/etc. T.I. - Bring 'Em Out/Swing Ya Rag/etc. Swizz Beatz - It's Me B*tches (including everyone's favorite rapper Lil Wayne) Drake - Fancy Whitney Houston - Million Dollar Bill Nicki Minaj - Roman's Revenge But yeah, you right. He wasn't relevant until you heard he hooked up with Alicia. Guess truth just made me say ouch...

    • Size Em Up

      Or maybe you never heard of Swizz because you don't know your Hip Hop history. That's YOUR truth. Crawl back under your rock.

  • gdsfklj

    his next single will be an instrumental dissing Bangladesh.

  • Anonymous

    I dont even like Swizz but he's way more relevant, even today, then Bangladesh ever was. Swizz was always wack to me but you cant dent that his name is well known, his music is played everywhere and he's accomplished alot, Bangladesh is just some dude that made the "A milli" beat, people that arent hardcore YM fans have no clue who he is. Sit down lil buddy

  • BOY

    Okay Swizz Beats sucks ass BUT Bangladesh is a BITCH! He said he could "make" another Lil Wayne, HAHAHA Lil Wayne can make another Bangladesh. Lil Weezy is KIGN of Hip Hop! YMCMB!!!!

  • da1

    300 million records sold swizz? Domestically? I don't think so playa. You got hits ith eve, Dmx, Beyonce, T.I and some other people. But Quincy Jones don't have that many records sold in the US alone. Banglaesh is a clown,but swizz is fucked up if he thinks that he sold that many records off of his producing alone. GTFOOH

    • hjk

      if he combines all the album sales he got at least one beat on them and singles together, maybe it can be 300, I don't know and he made it to the forbes list several times, his net worth may be cca 65 million dollars

    • Anonymous

      its clear that @hip hop fan does not grasp the gravity of 300 million.

    • thafranchise

      I agree with Hip Hop fan.

    • Hip Hop Fan

      300 million does not sound too far fetched. He use to produce in the time when records use to fly off the shelves, unlike today. Also, he is talking about albums he has produced for and not his own personal albums. Here's just a short list of people he produced for, Jay-Z, Mariah Carey, DMX, T.I., Mary J. Blige, Luda, Chris Brown, Drake, 50, Nas, R.Kelly and the list goes on and on. However, he only gets a very small percent of royalties so it doesn't translate to him being on the top of the Forbes list or anything, probably does get platinum plaques for his work.
