As I wrote on the Mississippi heavyweight emcee’s last DJBooth feature Something Is Wrong, you never know what you’re going to get from a David Banner track. He could be rhyming about big rims and bigger booties, the need to stand up to police brutality, or something just plain Strange. The second track we’ve heard off Banner and production legend 9th Wonder’s collabo album Death of a Popstar, their latest offering Strange ironically isn’t really all that strange. On the production tip Wonder delivers yet another dope soul soaked beat underwritten with just a hit of menace (see The Problem Is, Look Easy, etc. etc. etc.), and on the microphone side of the equation Banner is once again on his gangster revolutionary tip, touching on everything from Obama’s presidency to the struggle of single parents - although he does make sure to remind us he still “loves titties” – sentiments echoed by guest artist and newcomer Big Remo. Popstars should start making funeral plans now; Banner and 9th swear the album is coming “soon.”
