David Banner's mixtape "Before The Box" is the hottest mixtape out. I would say this is an instant classic.
David Banner is not holding back at expressing the need for Black people to respond to the conditions we face in America. Using one of the most powerful international tools we have, powerful voices over wonderful beats, David Banner's Before the Box breaks racist white America off.
Before The Box addresses relevant social issues concerning the plight of black people in America in a classic hardcore hip hop style. Banner places social issues over trap beats remarkably and by doing so he's teaching trap and even so called conscious artist how to do it. With hooks like "They call me David Banner B*tch from a Place Called Pain!!", and "I'm a Warrior!", the mixtape addresses issues in a way most of us would like them expressed when we are socially frustrated with the views and actions of white supremacy.
Banner also discuss the lack of leadership and over abundance of bad influence in the Hip Hop music with a tunes that may or may not be titled "I don't want to teach'em". Whatever it's called it's powerful music that will influence a lot of young artist to do right. Salute David Banner.
