David Banner The Producer & Actor

David Banner The Producer & Actor

    These days, David Banner isn't just another rapper, he has became one of the game's top producers. Before heading out on tour with Talib Kweli [more here], Banner sent new tracks to Lil Wayne and T.I. but is especially excited about a song he made with Chris Brown (who he stars in "Get Like Me" movie with). "It's wonderful. He was actually influenced by what happened during the hurricanes. It's really a gospel song, to be honest with you. And for me to be able to influence Chris in that way, for him to want to take his career to a whole 'nother level and really gamble in that direction, I was really, really impressed."

    Continuing to talk producing, Banner said "I'm producing two songs on Lil Wayne's album," continuing "I really can't get into that. … Everyone's asking for a beat, so you got to get it while it's hot. Right now, you name it, I'm working with them. You know, just working on everybody we can get close to. I can tell you the thing I'm most excited about: I just finished working with Quincy Jones. We redid [George Benson's] 'Give Me the Night' with Jamie Foxx. We produced it, me and Warren Campbell. You check that out, it's going to be wonderful also."

    David Banner and Talib Kweli are currently co-headlining the Sony-sponsored Hip-Hop
Live! Tour. B.O.B. and Little Brother will open during various stops.
"We're coming to a city close to you," Banner says. "Inside the tour
bus, we have studios. We're going all over America, a lot of places
where rap concerts don't stop. And what's going to be amazing about
this tour is that we're getting out there touching people, getting out
there being with the fans. You have to be in front of everything going
on, so we record [while on tour]."
