David Banner is feeling like a 2008 Dwyane Wade right now. The rapper/producer is putting the finishing touches on his 9th Wonder-assisted collaborative effort, Death of a Pop Star, his first new collection in nearly two years.

With a rekindled zeal for making music thanks to his work with 9th, Banner is set to revisit his most seminal LP, Mississippi: The Album, with hopes of delivering a redemptive effort a la Wade and his return to prominence after injuries slowed the star guard down.

“I’m working right now on Mississippi: The Album 3 — it’s called The Trinity Movement,” Banner told MTV News. “It’s the best work I’ve ever done and it’s because I’m coming off of Death of a Pop Star — the creativity coming off of Death of a Pop Star — and I’m able to go in a slightly darker place with me. ‘Cause some of the things I talk about on my album, I wouldn’t put that pressure on a 9th album — I think that responsibility should only be held by me. I have a lot of wild views and I know they’re wild. They’re meant to be. I would never put that on my friend. So I’m able to take that creativity and spin it off of 9th Wonder. – MTV
