You never know what you’re going to get with David Banner. One minute he’s a one-man Black Panther party, the next he’s telling Chris Brown to Get Like Me. On his latest track Something Is Wrong Banner is back to using his rhymes to build a social movement, urging listeners to stop the violence that’s brutally killing our young people (R.I.P. Derrion Albert). Banner spits his world-changing flows over trademark soul production from 9th Wonder and gripping vocals from Lisa Ivey, laying clear the roots of the violence that’s gripping inner-city America: “We started gang banging to protect ourself, now it’s power and respect to kill for wealth.” We all know something’s wrong, but no one will say it, except David Banner. Something Is Wrong will be included on Banner’s collaborative project with 9th Wonder titled Death of a Popstar, which currently has no release date.
