David Banner chatted with Ed Lover & Monie Love about his new album, “The God Box,” which he says has been 3 years in the making. He says it’s definitely his best album to date, and also speaks well of his current mental state, saying “I found a way to not drag our people down and still make a lot of money.” David talks about some of his other projects; “Saint & Sinners” on BounceTV, and his 20th film coming out soon with Sony. He talks about wearing too many hats and the contents of his album, and the difficulty of finding out what God was, “especially for someone coming from the south.”

He also explains why its not impossible to be prolific on the mic and still be commercial. He talks about coming across rappers who want a whack beat so they can shine on the song, rather than getting an amazing beat that they have to then slay. The problem, David says, isn’t lyricism, its commercialism. He says, instead of criticizing today’s music, find a way to make it dope, because the younger generations want to see you be successful.
