Famed “A Millie” producer Bangladesh has plans to record in the studio with Nas, and recently spoke on what the beat-making process was llike.
“I just do what I would like to hear from him,” explained the producer to SOHH.com. “I’m a super Nas fan. I’ve been a Nas fan since he came out. Since the first song.”
Bangladesh continued, explaining that he is seeking to lace the Queensbridge emceee with a more hardcore sound. “With me being a producer and me having my sound, I would like to hear him on harder beats, more 808-driven, just more aggression. With a Nas record, typically to me, the songs will make the track good. It’s not the track that makes the song good and that’s what I want to bring. I want to bring the track and the song so that you’re not only jamming to the beat with the words on it, but you can jam to the beat and the words and you can jam to the acapella with no beat to it.”
“I think he’s a great songwriter but sometimes his beats aren’t as good as his songs. I want to bring that element where it’s more aggressive, more heavy, something that’s going to pay more attention to Nas in an area where he doesn’t get looked at a lot.”
In related news, Nas recently spoke about the possibility of producers such as Swizz Beatz, DJ Premier, Alchemist, Dr. Dre, Kanye West and RZA contributing to his album.
