David Banner is getting ready to release his fifth studio album, "The Greatest Story Ever Told" on June 3rd but David Banner says he has two more albums, some film roles and a weight-loss DVD ready also. "Most rappers in this day and time don't get to make it to their fourth or fifth album, so I feel very blessed," Banner said.
Banner talked about the follow up to "The Greatest Story Ever Told", an album called "13" which he says "It's different than anything anybody's ever heard," continuing "It's acid blues hip-hop. Everybody that's heard it don't know what to call it." David Banner also finished a companion album for his Adult Swim cartoon show, "That Crook'd 'Sipp" that will come out later this year.
David Banner has film credits for "Black Snake Moan" and "This Christmas," now he's filmed a role in "Days of Wrath," which also features Laurence Fishburne, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ana Claudia Talancon and Wilmer Valderrama. "It's gonna be our generation's 'Scarface,'" Banner enthuses.
After he lost 54 pounds through a diet and exercise program, David Banner
is making a DVD to encourage others to do the same. "Young black and
Latinos now are dying from heart attacks at 28 and 30 years old," Banner
notes. "Hopefully through my transformation I can get to people in the
hood and encourage them. I honestly think I put 20 years on my life –
I really do. I want more people to be able to do that."
