David Banner

King David Words: Johnny "Jbutters" Mann; Photography:

David Banner’s production is like a musical pot of gumbo, thickened with chunky bass lines, seasoned with the soul of Mississippi and served over a blanket of organs, keys and drums. His unique sound is a hodgepodge of various influences ranging from Classical to 80’s pop. With the release of his solo albums, David has managed to gain notoriety outside of his rhymes and is quickly becoming the go to guy when you need that hit. His backdrops can be found powering T.I.’s catchy “Rubberband Man” or adding a down home feeling to Trick Daddy’s “Thug Holiday.”  2004 looks to be another Banner year as he sets to score John Singleton’s next film while still providing heat for upcoming projects from Busta Rhymes, Lil Flip, Trick, and possibly 50 Cent.
