David Banner’s Mission of Empowerment Documentary
The Mississippi MC met TNT executive Gina Barboza one time three months ago. What spawned from the meeting was David Banner’s Mission of Empowerment video, which is near 15 minutes of sharing Banner’s life, many accomplishments, viewpoints, music and 2M1 Movement. “It is amazing!” Banner told XXLMag.com about the Mission of Empowerment video, which hit the net on Wednesday (May 23). “To be able to have this 2M1 Movement and this documentary at the same time is great. I didn’t think [Barboza] did what she did for me. She did it for my movement.” It’s great timing, as Banner’s Sex, Drugs & Video Games free album dropped on Tuesday (May 22). The project features the likes of Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg and Chris Brown. [TheRealBannerTV1]
