David Banner Gathers All-Star Lineup For New Album, Greatest Story Ever Told

david-banner1.jpgMississippi native, David Banner, will release his new album, Greatest Story Ever Told, on October 9 on Universal Motown/SRC Records. The LP features the lead single, “Speaker,” a collaboration with Akon, Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg. In addition, the album will feature appearances and production by Chris Brown, Jim Jones, UGK, Cool & Dre and Nitti. “Everybody wants to hear the hits and I got ‘em,” says Banner. “But I wouldn’t be calling it The Greatest Story if it also wasn’t truthful. My fans know I’m going to be telling it straight-up however I’m coming.”

In addition, Banner and his charitable organization, Heal The Hood, was honored by the Black Caucus of Mississippi’s state legislature for their humanitarian efforts for Hurricane Katrina victims. Heal The Hood helped raise over $500,000 and distributed the funds to various Southern communities and organizations in Mississippi, Alabama and New Orleans.

    This nigga is the DJ Premier of the South,we fuck w/ David Banner heavily in the Savannah. I think that Saigon is a big dick ridin contradictin himself ass nigga. First you say that southern music is swap then you turn right back around and nominate Jeezy for some shit. I think that they should both do what they do.

    I Love Banner’s Muzik but I really don’t like the direction of this first single. Why use Akon when EVERYBODY ELSE IS USING THIS GUY. Banner can’t you find some other R&B or Reggae artist (Mya, Jaheim, Musiq, Christina Milian???). If this is any indication of what to expect I might not need to expect much. Certified was cool but it was no where near as good as MTA or MTA2. Man, it would be nice if through us a curveball or two instead of the same line up everybody is using (Chris Brown, UGK, Akon … I mean Damn you can’t find no one else maybe like Scarface for a guess spot.). I kind of feel like this album will either make or break DB’s Career. Hopefully it will make it.

    F*** David Banner, the guys got no talent, he cannot rap even if his life depended on it, he had his little run a few years ago, but now no one gives a s*** about him.

    This album will probably sell like 10,000 in the first week, I ain’t even gonna bother downloading it.

    (It will probably sell more than Saigon’s album, which has the same name – damn Just Blaze fell off)

    idk if its worth coppin cause 2 hot songs already leaked “9mm” and “Suicide Door”

  • Youcan’t handle the truth

    Be original and find a new tittle. Everybody in ear shot knows that’s a bite and goes down in Hip Hop as unoriginal. Now Sai has no control over what, who or when they decide to do right by him. The label, Atlantic, of course. So all of us internet junkies need to slow up and know the truth. Banner is dope on beats, his lyrics are half ass, and we know he also bit the Ying Yang song, the whisper song, so that shows his creativity is only that of a biter who jacks ish and switches the pitch. Now if Y’all really like Sai y’all know you can still hear a lot of his bangers and support no matter what. So shut the fuck up because nobody hears us beyond this page.
