It’s been seven years since David Banner released his Death Of A Pop Star with 9th Wonder, but the gifted Mississippi native is officially back in action with his long-awaited album, The God Box.
Written and recorded over the last half decade, Banner was inspired by the diverse range of people he’d encountered during various speaking tours to deliver an album that speaks to the experience that black men have in this twisted country.
“It’s more than an album, it’s an art exhibit,” says Banner. “It’s sort of like a secret. It’s something that people are going to have to come to their own conclusions on. Everyone will get something different out of the album; and I’ll let the listener decide what that is.”
Locked in at 15 tracks, The God Box includes features from Black Thought (“Who Want It“), Big K.R.I.T. (“My Uzi”), Tito Lo
pez (“Black Fist”), CeeLo Green & Raheem DeVaughn (“Magnolia”), Trinidad James, Big Rube, and more.
