Hip-Hop Rumors: Shots Fired? Producer Bangladesh Says Swizz Beatz Is “Not Relevant”

Super producer Bangladesh recently did a no-holds barred interview with XXL Magazine, where he threw more than a few shots at Swizz Beatz. From saying that Swizzy is only relevant because of his marriage to Alicia Keys to saying that he looks old. Check out a few of his quotes from the interview below:

“I don’t think Swizz is relevant. I’m keeping it 100.”

“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?” 

Bangladesh dug himself deeper into the hole by implying that Swizz is not “youthful” or “in-the-know.”

“The relevance is in being youthful,” he said. “Still being in-the-know.  I have a 15 year old son so they think we’re brothers and I put him on to stuff. You know, I’m 34 but people tell me I look 23.  He still look to me for information. Usually it’s the opposite; usually the parents are lame or too old to understand or whatever. Just the way I feel, I got so much more time.”

Do you think Swizz Beatz should respond? Does Bangladesh have a point?

  • A man judging another man’s looks sounds gay. What’s next? Gonna say a dude looks attractive?

    Is Bangladesh relevant?

    Then again, saying Rick Fawlse looks like a ———- doesn’t sound gay, so >> Shrugging “E” Shoulderz like ICH.

    • Adrian Barron

      aint no different than WEEZY calling JAY … OLD!

      • Jizzah!

        Jays almost 50 big difference

      • johnblacksad

        LOL… ninjaz got no respect

  • johnblacksad

    “The relevance is in being youthful,”… i dunno kno about that, but i do kno that being stupid dumb as fcuk often is in being youthful!

    Bangladesh has never been, is not, and will never be relevant… sad sh!t

  • johnblacksad

    “I’m 34 but people tell me I look 23” …that’s only because you act like an ignorant young stupid negro! This dumb ninja thinks it’s a compliment! smh… i’m done with this buster right here

    • No he said people think he is 23 not how he acts.i do not look my age either but i know my age.

      • johnblacksad

        what black peeps you know that make their age? (crackheadz aside…) there’s no point in what he sayin… plus it really makes him look stoop…. how long until he’s as old as old folks you see everyday?!
        Ninjaz stretchin just to diss… fcuk him and his wack beatz!

        Real talk, didn’t he make Weezy’s ‘A milli’? well… real rea real muffin talk : this wack song has got to be one of the wackest songs/beatz/concept/ ever… sh!t literally hurts my earz…. wack azz negro! (oh, that and Missy’s Get your freak on…. what a fuckin horrible repetitive azz beat/song/video…)

  • bangladesh beats sound like Swizz’s beats.Wonder if bagladesh ever made beats for Swizz.Seems random

  • Sonyafun

    Ihave no idea who this person is, just like I had no idea who Swizz Beatz was before he hooked up with Alicia. I think he’s partly right.

    • Swiss had produced at least 5 platinum albums before he and Alicia ever had their first conversation. Do your homework.

  • Jahb1911

    He Has some points, but it sounds like hating to me.. Just Saying!!

    • Rayo Chelios

      Yeah I agree. Swizz hasn’t really dropped a banger in awhile, but that doesn’t discredit him as being “relevant.” Every beat made by a producer isn’t a banger, every song isn’t a hit.

      • summer on smash!!! thats on nas album and its a banger!!! bangladesh produced…….a milli. booooooo

  • That_N

    At the end of the day….Swizz has made some good beats and Bangladesh has made some good beats. Currently, Bangladesh’s beats are more in demand than Swizz’s. It’s not a good look for him to be arrogant about it, though.

    • HipHopStalker

      You may think Bangladesh is more in demand but Swizz does music for reebok commercials and even rock groups so he stays getting paper more than just doing hip hop tracks.

  • Adrian Barron

    swizz just produced and hit the studio with ASAP –
    and he still gets an automatic nod whenever Jay, TI, Jada, Styles P, and DMX drop
    how’s that for relevance you dumb phuck …
    rather be caught with these VET’S than these “new booty niggahs” anyday

  • Alf Capone

    they both kinda suck anyway

  • best_believe

    Dude look 44. Bus ass. Smell like queens bridge.

  • NOW HE GOT OTHER NIGGAS SAYN HE LOOK 23,WHAT A FAG! LOOK NIGGA, ITS A BEAT GAME. SWIZZY BEEN ROUND LONGER AN HAS MORE HITS! I RESPECT U BOTH! BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE UR MAD CUZ U AINT F#$KIN MRS.

U CAN FIND ME ON KEEPING IT 100 AVE. WHERE UR MOMS LIVE @..

  • shayleshay

  • Dontoure Smith

    This comin from the dude who had to sue Cadh Money twice to get his money.

  • Negro Peligro

    Man SWIZZ tracks kill Bangladesh. JUST BECAUSE you on YOUNG MONEY Tracks don’t mean nothing. 6 FOOT 7 FOOT TAKE A BIG STEP THE HELL UP OUT OF HERE. I mean he nice. But him and SWIZZIE ain’t in the same lane. HONESTLY MONEY CASH HOES kills just about every song on Bangladesh’s catalog. NOT TO MENTION THE PRODUCTION IN FLESH OF MY FLESH BLOOD OF MY BLOOD BY DMX. JIGGA MY NIGGA. I’M A HUSTLA BY CASS. YOU WANT BASS. TOUCH IT BY BUSTA RHYMES. Sorry but CHRIS BROWN SONG Transformya sounds more banging than just about all of the CASH MONEY CATALOG. I didn’t even go to sales. FANCY killed everything this dude produced for cash money other than AMILLI. I’m not even going on SALES BUT SWIZZ DONE SOLD MORE THAN MR RELEVANCE IN LIKE THE LAST 2 YEARS. Mr. Relevant hasnt been relevant since A MILLI. He got jerked over that. Bangladesh been in the game for almost as long as SWIZZ why he covered his tracks on the old thing.

  • hoeyuno

    Swizz beatz has a pretty damn good resume homie. swizzy doesn’t have to respond to this amateur. And on his looks… The dude is married to a fine ass woman who has a brain. He doesn’t have to worry about his looks no mo.

  • Tracklist speaks for itself…………hating a$$ nigga…

  • Grown men grow up…..(walks away)

  • AK

    compared to lex luger or harry fraud he isnt relevent either and i would take a swizz beat over his anyday

  • King Cold

    wow….lemme get this straight youre an irrelevant dude calling swizz beats who’s produced hits from the Ruff Ryders to Jay-z to diddy irrelevant???? man you need to take a step back and take notes because youre feelin ya self alil too much. And then you talk about his looks???lmao….#pause…..Im turning my back on you

  • toreal

    Swizz Beats ostrich neck ass took my future wife away from me.

  • To: Bangladesh, Get 10 years in then talk like this homie. What brought about this hate? And this “youthful” shiit is what’s hurting hip hop. Everybody is making kiddie sounding songs (thank god for Life’s Good). What we fail to realize is that hip hop is like almost 5 decades in. We can’t keep limiting ourselves to being a child’s genre or like the homie Esco said it is going to die. And dude is 34 talking about “youthful”?

  • FACT_CHECKseed

    BREAKING NEWS: Irrelevant man in sweaty leather cap calls out other irrelevant man in an attempt to become relevant.

    ALL U OTHER BUSTERS NEED 2 KILL YOURSELF OH YEA DJ PRIMO BEST EVER

  • Adrian

    Swizz’s beats for the past few years have all sounded similar. Unlike
    his earlier days when you would be surprised that he made that beat. Not
    knocking the man, just would like more quality and versatility from him
    instead of reworking the same beat into different songs and say that
    its hot. The best producers in the game right now to name a few is DJ
    Khalil, Statik Selektah, No I.D. and Big Krit, I am probably missing a
    few right now but those are the crop that have shown a great versatility
    in their beats over the past few years.

    I didn’t mention Dre or Timbaland or the other legendary producers because thats what they are. Legendary.

  • What is sad that neither one of them are as a good as Marley Marl or Dj Premier or pete rock. now if they said it might mean something but i always thought swizz beatz was overrated.

  • i HATE when young ppl think that they can REALLY be that verbally disrespectful to legends like that. I’m only 22, and I’m saying this. Swiss Beats HAD the 90s in his back pocket!!! Bangladesh JUST started havin his shit out on the radio a few years ago. CHIIIIIILL man, CHIIIIIIILL. No comparison, no competition!!!

  • these atlanta niggas are cocky….and why are you 34 just getting in the game you should be trying to get out

  • lol hating

  • Wil Btvglobal Ty

    THIS DUDE DON’T WANT IT WITH SWIZZ. SWIZZ OLD BEATS THAT DMX DIDN’T WANT WILL CRUSH THIS DUDES SO CALL HITS. PERIOD! SOUND LIKE A JEALOUS MAN TO ME.

  • World Wide

    You see that what I’ve been saying for a long time, these new niggas have no respect whatsoever with the dudes that came before them. You see it from the artists and their fans. People who lack talent always have to mention someones age as if they don’t have a birth day! This nigga right here is delusional and is feeling his self way to much. I mean I won’t even label him as a “super producer” neither. He’s make some hot joints but he’s a way off being labeled as a super producer and that’s real. Swizz Beats tracks defined an era in Hip Hop. From 98 until the early 2000’s and beyond most of the hottest Hip Hop record were produced by Swizz. No dick riding, only truth. The only beat I can name of Bang’s is “A Millie” and “6’7” (which were the exact same beat) and he still probably hasn’t been paid properly for. Bang if your reading this stay in your lane, stop worry about another niggas looks and worry about your own career.

  • rk3000

    technically Bangladesh has almost been in the game as long as Swizz. Bangladesh produced Fantasy for Ludacris. So on that note Bang your catalog is looking really lite compare to Swizz. As a D.j I could probably play a 3 hour set just playing Swizz produced songs and rock a club. After you play Bangladesh 4 hits your done.

    Bangldash sound butt hurt!
