Ever ask yourself: when is it too soon to sample a record? Well, David Banner asked himself that very question and the answer he came up with is “never!” Despite the fact that Lil’ Wayne’s smash hit Lollipop is about to enter its 15th week on the charts, and, is still one of the top five most-played records at urban radio nationally, Banner has happily jacked Wayne’s “Shawty Say…” line and used it as the theme for the second single off his long-overdue album, The Greatest Story Ever Told. The difference between David Banner and most artists, however, is that the Mississippi native has actually brought Wayne aboard for the project and the two friends shot a video for the record following this week’s BET Awards in Los Angeles.
Note: The streaming of “Shawty Say” has temporarily been suspended.
