Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III album sold one "milli" in a week, making Weezy's "A Milli" track applicable to everything he touched in 2008. Originally, "A Milli" producer Bangladesh assumed he'd have to revamp the sped-up 808 drum machine to accommodate the verse/hook/verse/hook format, but Wayne didn't want a traditional beat. "That's the genius of Lil Wayne that I didn't see because being a producer I'm trying to sequence the song properly so it can get on the radio," Bangladesh explained. "It shows how great the song is because it's not sequenced for radio format," yet, as he points out, it became the Number One song added to radio playlists.
