Favorite Quotes from David Banner

My favorite record I’ve ever done was on my first album, Mississippi: The Album, and it was called ‘My Shawty.’ And of course ‘Like A Pimp’ because that changed my life. I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t include T.I.’s ‘Rubber Band Man’ on a list of my favorites.” – David Banner 

“I think it’s just the people that I have relationships with because I’m here. Those are my peers, and that’s who I’m around every day. When I was on the West Coast, I mostly worked with west coast artists.” – David Banner 

“I never did that. I always tried as hard as I could to make every beat sound different, to show my dexterity, because that’s the thing that keeps my interest. But in a lot of cases, it’s hard to find artists who want to push forward. It seems like music has turned into people being more comfortable with sounding similar.” – David Banner 

“I don’t think people give hip-hop the credit it deserves. No one would ever fathom that I would go to L.A. and get a real symphony orchestra. The God Box didn’t have a sample on it.” – David Banner 

“It wasn’t really a shift – and a lot of people say that only because there was more of a consistent level of consciousness on the album. If you go back to listen to most of my records, they were always live instruments.” – David Banner 

“What I was more nervous about was — a lot of the topics on my album felt like they were advanced. A lot of music is from a kindergarten to a third-grade level, in most cases. This was 12th grade, college, doctoral music from a lyric perspective.” – David Banner
