Listen clearly to the intro of your favorite Hip Hop or pop song and you will surely here the infamous word “Bangladesh” blast through your stereo. The word “Bangladesh” can be associated with the biggest names in the music industry including Beyonce, Rihanna, Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Eminem. Shondrae “Bangladesh” Crawford is the man credited with multiple Grammy awards and the creation of some of the biggest hits of our time, including the most freestyled-to record in Hip Hop history, “A Milli” from Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter 3”.
After establishing his reputation in the world of Hip Hop, Bangladesh successfully transitioned into the pop world, crafting records such as “Diva” and “Videophone” for Beyonce and “Sleazy” for Ke$ha, even expanding his reputation internationally through production for artists such as UK’s JLS and Australia’s Jessica Mauboy.
Beginning with the single “What’s Yo Fantasy” from Ludacris’ debut album, Bangladesh’s unique sound began to take over the airwaves through a series of other hit singles, including 8Ball and MJG’s “You Don’t Want Drama” and “Don’t Make Me”, as well as the Petey Pablo smash “Vibrate.” His trademark futuristic sound was also featured on Ciara’s “Hotline,” the rapid-fire “RPM” (Shawnna), and more recently on records such as “A Kiss” (Bad Meets Evil) and “They Point” (E-40).
As a veteran of the music industry, Bangladesh now has his sights set on the launch of Bangladesh Records, aiming to dominate the airwaves both across genres and across the globe.
