So last week I caught up with David Banner in Washington Square Park in NYC.  He was really approachable and willing to talk which just makes my life easier.  In part 1 of our interview Banner establishes the importance of making a good song.  Just because you are saying “real sh*t” that’s no excuse for your song not to be “jammin”.  A really valid point in my opinion.  He also goes into how rap music shouldn’t be identified based on what region it’s from, and how even though the south is killing it right now, all the checks are getting cut in NYC or LA.  Be sure to look out for his upcoming album with 9th Wonder Death Of A Pop Star, and then his solo effort MTA3: The Trinity MovementAlso be sure to follow him on twitter.  I reference a song in the interview called “Slow Down” off his project with 9th Wonder that I’m also going to throw below.  Check Out Part 2.
