India Arie – “Steady Love” (Video)

The number of people who would argue with me when I declared India Irie and David Banner the ‘Most Adorable Keep-It-Real & GOALS Couple EVER’… absolutely ZERO! I am not going to even do one search to see if they are actually ‘shipped’ in real life. Nope.

I am just going to live in the beautiful moments this video creates. And what a wonderful song. And that warrior-in-the-streets x king-in-the-sheets yearning… AND all that body (ma THICK y’all, woowee!) and bright smiling that India is hitting us with… Maaaan, we gone ALL get pregnant!

Check out “Steady Love” off India’s LP “Worthy” (out now).

David Banner Speaks On His New Album, How Trump’s Election Was A Good Thing, And Black People Needing To Be More Racist (Video)

Preach, David Banner, PREACH!

About all that in the headline, and then some! Not only will he speak about his activism… and struggles with alcohol, depression, etc. But Banner gets things started with the WAY to deliver an activist’s message in music. First Commandment of an Entertainer, esp. in Hip-Hop music: THOU SHALL NOT BE WACK!!!! Spiritual/Positive/Conscious music artists cannot lean on the message and just put out wack music. And looking at you, too, rapping-azz-rappers: Stop sacrificing lyricism for beats, or vice versa… No wack music!!

David Banner – “Magnolia” feat. Cee-Lo x Raheem DeVaughn

David Banner be banging! This release, “Magnolia,” off the forthcoming project “The God Box” (pre-order link below) is painfully deep with a story over a dope beat.

The song represents the relationship of trees in Mississippi and Africans throughout history. The taller the tree, the broader the story, the shorter the tree, the more personal the perspective is. My verse is about the relationship between the magnolia tree and Africans during slavery.
David Banner

“The God Box” has vocal performance features from Cee-Lo and Raheem (obviously) and Big K.R.I.T from the Magnolia State; plus Black Thought (of The Roots), Trinidad James, WatchtheDuck and Big Rube. Production assists come from DJ Khalil, DJ Swiff, and more.

David Banner – “Who Want It” feat. Black Thought x WatchtheDuck (Prod. By THX)

Mr. Mississippi is baaaaack. And Black Thought’s got his baaaack. Bad news for the wack. But oh so dope news for any heads out there. Because lyrics like this fam…

I got the wordplay of Wallace, the work ethic of Shakur
I was sent into to the future with a message from the Moors
I went to war, my weapon just a blessing from the Lord
Rest assured that my pen is more mighty than the sword
Black Thought, “Who Want It”

Oooh-hooo-hooooohhh my DAMN! David Banner does it again. Listen to him, WatchtheDuck, and Tariq run this THX track.

David Banner Talks About Taking Hip-Hop To The Next Level, Making “My Uzi” And More (Video)

If we don’t do something… Hip-Hop is not gonna be ours anymore… It is up to us… We gotta push Hip-Hop to another level… The White boys are getting more and more lyrical, and we’re basically mumbling.
David Banner

Man that Banner: Always an interesting interview. He talks about Hip-Hop, its slipping from the grasp of Black people as originators (as did Rock and as R&B is about to), about “My Uzi” (featuring Big K.R.I.T.), about the almost-done album “The God Box,” and more.

POWERFUL interview. Please watch attentively. Share enthusiastically. Enjoy and be enriched!

David Banner – “My Uzi” feat. Big K.R.I.T. (Video)

Lyric video for that “My Uzi” (featuring Big K.R.I.T.) dopeness shared with you the other day. Banner is promising that “The God Box” is coming soon; so it looks like this single is now spoken for (no longer a loosey). Folks have been telling me they like how the beat switches and goes ‘theatrical’ near the end. I just like how it comes in hard-driving with no let up…feels like the revolution ’bout to jump off or something!

Kap G – “La Policia” feat. T.I. x David Banner (Remix)

Uh oh. If you know some cops, you need to ask them to leave you alone while you play this one. Nothing untrue. But truth hurts. Communicated via vessel like this… carries some extra sting! Can you imagine singing F#ck “La Policia” aloud? Don’t worry, Kap G, T.I. and David Banner will do it for you.

Sa-Roc – “The Who?” featuring David Banner (Prod. Sol Messiah) [Video]

A dope joint should have a dope video. It’s only right. Thus, the degree of dopeness for “The Who?” (produced by Sol Messiah). Sa-Roc and David Banner star. Respect to Bad Magics for hipping me to this.

Sa-Roc – “The Who?” featuring David Banner (Prod. Sol Messiah)

oKDH4Sn

“The Who?” takes a realer-than-real look at Black history, with David Banner dropping a 16 as Patrice Lumumba, the Congolese freedom fighter who helped his country win independence from Belgium in 1960 and became the first democratically-elected Prime Minister, before being executed by Belgian-backed secessionists in 1961. Sa-Roc seals the deal over the Sol Messiah track to whet appetites for Sa-Roc forthcoming “Nebuchadnezzar” LP.

David Banner Speaks On His Movies & Music, And How We Should Really Be ‘Walking With Gods’ (Video)

HipHopSince1987 with an incredible exclusive interview of David Banner. Of course, he spoke on his new fantasy action series web series (which we posted on here earlier) “Walking With Gods”… and his role in the recent big budget timeline film “The Butler” (starring Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whittaker)… but Banner goes DEEP in this three-parter, too.

Action Fantasy: David Banner’s Web Drama “Walking With Gods” Premieres (Video)

Just finished watching this. WOW!! Speechless. Truth is… I did not even know what to call this genre David Banner is delving into on YouTube, but thankfully my brother did (shout out to @BoneBreakerMC – love you bruh)… Action Fantasy! Yeah. This “Walking With Gods” is DOPENESSS (with an extra ‘s’)!

‘Walking With Gods is a live-action, superhero series. It is about a man whose godly powers are realized only when his inner being is balanced and he truly believes in the power within.’

I hope this effort spurs continued growth in this sector of the arts. New content… we don’t have to wait on the next X-Men or Transformers at the box office when folks like Mr. Mississippi are putting out ORIGINAL work we can be proud of and support right now! Positive images of people of color with great story lines and musical scores to boot. Banner’s effort to ‘Control Our Images’ on screen needs our support.

‘If you want to see more, you can donate at www.davidbanner.com. Thank you ALL. Controlling Our Images.’

Parts 1 and 2 combined are embedded above. Check out Parts 3 and 4 after the jump.

David Banner – “Californication” feat. Snoop Dogg, Nipsey Hussle, The Game, & Ras Kass (Video)

I thought this new David Banner joint called “Californication” was a definite banger when it leaked on the web a few weeks ago. The song is straight heat but I didn’t expect a video to drop for this at all. I’m not mad that the Mississippi native decide to put some “allstar visuals” to this joint featuring Snoop Dogg, Game, Nipsey Hussle, & Ras Kass. It’s even more interesting to see David Banner, who reps the south so heavy, do a song for all my Cali people. I wonder if David Banner will do a song for the “East Coast brothas”……probably not. That says alot without saying anything at all. It is what it is. Hahaaa!

David Banner – “Let Me In” feat. Tank (Video)

David Banner drops another new video from his upcoming project called “Let Me In” featuring Tank. This joint sounds like a winner right here on the R&B side of thangs & the smoothed out video obviously was shot in Atlanta. Look for this song on David Banner’s upcoming project “Sex, Drugs, & Video Games”….

David Banner’s “Believe” featuring Big K.R.I.T. is a dope first single to drop a video to for his upcoming mixtape “Sex, Drugs, & Videogames” that’s coming out soon. Make sure you check out his website for more info on the plan on how he’s setting up the mixtape for May 22nd. As far as this particular single goes I’m still diggin’ the nice touch on the use of the Jodeci sample…..

David Banner feat. Big K.R.I.T. – “Believe”

This is a pretty dope joint from David Banner featuring fellow Mississippi native Big K.R.I.T. called “Believe”. From a production standpoint this is a pretty dope flip on the Jodeci classic “Love U For Life”. Be on the lookout for David Banner’s next project “Sex, Drugs, & Video Games” due May 22nd & ….
