Exactly one month ago, David Banner came out swinging heavy, but with extreme accuracy, delivering to the world his first album in seven years, The God Box.
One of the key points Banner pushed regarding the LP is that “It’s more than an album, it’s an art exhibit.”
While he was able to share the incredible music with us, which included features from Black Thought (“Who Want It“), Big K.R.I.T. (“My Uzi”) plus Ceelo Green, Raheem Devaughn and much, much more, Banner wasn’t able to secure the album’s artwork in time for its release.
Because he stressed how important the artwork is to the overall project, Banner sat down with Genius to share each song’s art, perfectly crafted by Manzel Bowman which he explained “accompanies and exemplifies The God Box.”
“This art is authentic. It’s non-conventional. It’s subversive. While I offer to you my interpretation of the artwork, keep in mind it is just that, my interpretation. It is not the interpretation,” he said. “You will see whatever the art shows to you and your interpretation is just as right as mine.”
