This album will sit with the greatest of our time I just hope people acknowledge it like it should be.
Christopher D. Johnson
Together they create a unique and thought-provoking voice in a genre that most of their constituents ruin with playground commercialism and materialistic dysmorphia.

For a large part of David Banner's solo career, he has been fighting a long winded fight over artistic expresssion- both within himself as well as the major labels.

For a large part of David Banner's solo career, he has been fighting a long winded fight over artistic expresssion- both within himself as well as the major labels. While his roots are firmly steeped in the underground due to his late 90's group Crooked Lettaz, he seemed like he became content with making music for a mainstream audience. While he had huge radio hits, he wasn't taken seriously- even when he had things of importance to say. He was thought provoking in his appearances on BET and C-SPAN and politically active in the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts when the U.S. government was indifferent. All of this was going on when he had a huge hit with his sexually charged songs "Play" and "Like A Pimp". While his efforts on the political front seemed noble, almost no one could get past his image as a club rapper. So, David took matters in his own hands by severing ties with a major label and heading to E1 Music for his new album "Death Of A Pop Star", an album produced by North Carolinian 9th Wonder. Normally, David handles the production, but relinquished control intentionally so people could pay attention to him as an artist. He wanted to drive home the point the lack of creativity and originality within urban music and felt that if things weren't going to change, then the music would flame out and burn- hence the title "Death Of A Pop Star".

Though most of this album was posted on YouTube for several months prior to the album's release, there are notable changes on the album front. For starters, the album has live instrumentation, which is a complete contrast from 9th Wonder's usually sample-based production.

I was introduced to David Banner when most people were, when he released his single "Like A Pimp" with Lil Flip. Obviously the song was made to hear in a club, but the song's energy couldn't be denied. I was aware that David Banner was a member of the group Crooked Lettaz, who released a CD in the late 90s, Grey Skies, but I never heard any of their music. I still can't find a physical copy of that CD 'til this day. Based on "Like A Pimp", I decided to pick up his album, Mississippi: The Album, which was released in 2003. The album was a mix bag of different tracks that the average fan of Southern music would enjoy. In the same year, David Banner also released Mta2: Baptized in Dirty Water. The lead single "Crank It Up" featured the late Static of the r&b group Playa. This CD also had a mixture of different songs including another song with Lil Flip, "Talk To Me", Devin The Dude & Bun B on "Gots To Go" and Scarface joining David Banner on "The Game". David Banner's next album Certified was released in 2005. Eventhough the first single, "Ain't Got Nothing" w/Magic & Lil Boosie flew under the radar, everyone took notice once he made the racy club jam "Play". Some of my favorites included "On Everything" w/Twista, "Gangster Walk" w/Three 6 Mafia, 8Ball, MJG & Marcus, "Ridin'" w/Talib Kweli & Dead Prez and "Treat Me Like" w/Jadakiss.Read more ›

This album should stand as a testament of a rap artist that forgave being a pop artist to speak from the soul. With this album Banner stepped into the arena with one of the great producers of our time to create a masterpiece. The album is full of political/cultural commentary bonded with soulful beats. I can't stop listening to it. This album will sit with the greatest of our time I just hope people acknowledge it like it should be. Every cut can played through with no skips. I thank both of these brothers for this album, you inspire me.

This is undoubtably one of the best Hip-Hop albums of the past few years. 9th Wonder drops some of his finest beats to date and Banner's rhymes are both playful and intuitive. Together they create a unique and thought-provoking voice in a genre that most of their constituents ruin with playground commercialism and materialistic dysmorphia. I hope that this is the first of many from this spectacular duo. Well done gentlemen, well done.
