Christening himself after comic book hero “The Hulk,” David Banner (AKA Levell Crump) has become a superhero of rap. Growing up in an impoverished and all-too-often racist environment in Mississippi, a young Banner started sampling on a Casio, and used music to express his thoughts on social issues. With his politically charged lyrics and memorable hooks, Banner shot to the top as a heavyweight of Southern rap. His latest single, 9MM, Is a booming and dark ode to the weapon, featuring performances from fellow powerhouses Snoop Dogg, Akon, and Lil’ Wayne. Expect to hear more from “Mr. Mississippi” soon, when his forthcoming album, The Greatest Story Ever Told drops.
