David Banner: Whites Are Getting More Lyrical & We're Mumbling

"For the first time in my life, Smallz, I'm proud. Like, I'm proud of myself, dude."

For some time now, fans of David Banner have been anxiously awaiting his album "The God Box," especially after the year he's had on social media. In the past few months we've watched as Banner explained what needs to be done in hip-hop for the Black community while also addressing the plight of police brutality. With "The God Box, " David Banner wants to make sure he covers every topic that should be addressed, which is why he feels it's "one of the best hip-hop albums ever."

While trying to shorten the number of tracks on "The God Box" to 13 (because he's "always been spiritually connected to the number"), the rapping activist is also making note of the changes being made in the hip-hop genre. "We gotta push hip-hop to another level 'cause I'm even watching lyrically - the White boys are getting more and more lyrical and we['re] basically mumbling," David expresses. For that reason, he's not "just not gon[na] throw some s*** together." "I'll push it all the way back. Or pull a Dr. Dre before I put some bulls*** out," he tells DJ Smallz. "Ima be honest with you, I'm trying to do like Akon doing. Like, I'm trying to provide energy and water - I'm trying to change the situation of Black people globally. This music s*** ain't nothing but words and beats."
Catch David Banner speak about the current state of hip-hop, his achievements in life and more in this DJ Smallz Eyes' exclusive.
