David Banner-The God Box Album Stream

David Banner’s long-awaited God Box album is here now and you can fully stream it before purchase. It’s been seven years since the release of his 9th Wonder collaboration album, Death Of A Pop Star. Banner consciously chose to make an album that centered around the experiences of Black men in America. In consideration of this idea, it is no surprise that The God Box was released on Malcolm X’s birthday (May 19th). Banner had this to say about The God Box:

“It’s more than an album, it’s an art exhibit. 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.”



David Banner: Magnolia Feat. CeeLo Green & Raheem DeVaughn

David Banner just had a well-received episode of Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette and now he has leaked “Magnolia” featuring CeeLo Green and Raheem DeVaughn days before the release of The God Box. The Magnolia is the official flower of Banner’s Mississippi home and he says the song is about the relationship about the “relationship of the magnolia tree and Africans during slavery.” The God Box comes out on EMPIRE Friday and it has a 24-page booklet and appearances from Black Thought, Big K.R.I.T. and Trinidad James.


Watch David Banner Make Paper For Rhythm Roulette

David Banner visits Atlanta’s Wax N Facts to the three customary records to make a beat for Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette series. Banner and his crew including Gensu Dean, Burroughs and Tricky LT 45 take The Meters, Gladys Knight & The Pips and Chicago to create the anti-materialism southern soul of “Paper.” Banner was sure to explain the significance of using samples in rap because of the producers’ inability to pay for musicians and studio time. “Paper” is the first song created from the Rhythm Roulette episodes to get a formal release.
