It’s certainly a long way from Des Moines, Iowa for Atlanta resident Shondrae Crawford, better known as producer Bangladesh or sometimes Mr. Bangladesh if the track’s super nasty, and that’s a good thing. Although he’s been in the music rat race for more than a minute, this year he really distanced himself from the pack. The reason: Lil Wayne’s mega hit “A Milli”.

Thanks to “A Milli”, Bangladesh received individual BET Hip-Hop Award nominations for Producer of the Year and Track of the Year while Lil Wayne, who received twelve nominations in all, also received a nomination for the Alltel’s People’s Champ award, specifically for “A Milli”.

Bangladesh, who attended Tri-Cities High School, alma mater to OutKast’s Andre 3000,  is no stranger to monster hits; he and a certain rapper you may know named Ludacris picked up the Dirty South baton way back in 2000 with “What’s Your Fantasy?”, Ludacris’s career-altering smash. But Bangladesh, who also produced Kelis’ mega-chart topper “Bossy”, knew it was only a matter of time before his name became as big as the artists on some of his tracks.

BET of course owned Atlanta this past weekend and shut down everything. From schools, to clubs to mansions. WEEN was on the scene at one event for the Preview Style Suite, in which WEEN Chair Shakara Bridges and her company Get ‘Em Girls, Inc. was a part of. The event was hosted by The Garner Circle PR, Branded PR and True Star Firm:

“A Milli” producer Bangladesh came out with a guest.

Kim and She’ree of Real Housewives of Atlanta also hit up the event. Is it just me or does She’ree look like Nicole Scherzinger (lead singer of Pussycat Dolls) a little bit? Maybe it’s the light and angle.

Founder & President of Upfront Records (and Melyssa Ford’s boyfriend) Devyne Stephen’s took in the festivities

Dorian & Shavon from College Hill ATL showed up together. That season was my favorite season!

E-40 was also there

A-Town native Gorilla Zoe came out to take in the festivities

Actress Mari Marrow also was at the Style Suite

Meka Means of The Girls Club (and D. Woods sister) also showed up to the event.

Well Sammie, where have you been?

Yung Joc brought out a lady friend (or relative) and she got her product placement on.
