It has been seven years since David Banner released the album Death Of A Pop Star with 9th Wonder, which was done by design. He took his time to create his latest album, The God Box, as he was fueled by the people he encountered on his speaking tours, he wanted to create something that spoke to the experience that black men have in this country – decidedly political, potentially even antagonistic, but that’s Banner’s style. He has never been one to let his thoughts or ideas sit idle.
The God Box features an all-star cast, including Cee-Lo, Raheem DeVaughn, Big K.R.I.T., Black Thought, Trinidad James, WatchtheDuck and Big Rube. While Dave handles the production on half of the album himself, he also enlists production from DJ Khalil, DJ Swiff, Chris “THX” Goodman and more.
When asked what The God Box is, Banner states:
Tt’s more than an album, it’s an art exhibit. It’s sort of like a secret. It’s something that people are going to have to come to their own conclusions on. Everyone will get something different out of the album; and I’ll let the listener decide what that is.
