David Banner Biography

David Banner (born Levell Crump) is an American rapper and hip hop music record producer from Mississippi. Prior to having a solo career, Banner was part of the rap duo Crooked Lettaz which released an album called, Grey Skies in 1999. Banner then released his first solo album called, Them Firewater Boyz, Vol. 1 in 2000. The album managed to sell over 10,000 copies in his hometown alone despite having little record label backing. His first major-label album, Mississippi: The Album, went gold and was a critical and commercial success, largely due to the success of lead single, "Like A Pimp", as well as more introspective album tracks such as "Cadillac's On 22's" and "Mississippi". The following album, MTA2: Baptized in Dirty Water, was completed in two weeks at the behest of SRC executive Steve Rifkind. His fourth album, Certified was released on September 20, 2005, after repeated delays. During the Hurricane Katrina crisis, Banner used his tour bus to help shuttle and house victims in Southern Mississippi. He is currently signed to SRC. Other than rapping, he is a producer and has produced for artists like T.I., Chingy, Nelly among others. He is currently working with the new artist Marcus which was discovered by David. The reason he became a producer was because when he was young and had just started rapping, nobody would give him beats or he couldn't afford it. His most popular single, "Play", has caused some contoversy for its very explicit lyrics. Its main chorus is "Work that clit, cum girl." Most of the song portrays Banner's desire to make women "cum" (excrete vaginal fluid) and to have sex "until their pussy aches" and "making the bed break". Despite these controversies, "Play" still received much airplay on Top 40 and Rap/R&B radio stations, and on music video channels like MTV, though the lyrics are changed significantly for the airplay version. Levell Crump is a proud graduate of Southern University and A&M College, Baton Rouge Louisiana. He was SGA (Student Government Association) President while there. Read Full Bio >>
