Originally when I heard on a Breakfast Club interview
about him asking people to donate a dollar for a movement he started, I was thinking, "If you can afford to pay all these speeding tickets, why don't you use your money for us all?" I'd enjoyed a few of David Banner's songs but others not so much. However, every single time I saw him during an interview he impressed me. He's a really intelligent guy who dumbs down some of his music to please an audience hell bent on ignoring the history of hip-hop. So when I got to songs about loose Mexican women on the West Coast and naked women counting his money, I was set to move on to the next mixtape on DatPiff.com
. Then I got to songs like "Malcolm X (A Song to Me)" and "Swag Remix," and played the hell out of these songs. Nonstop repeat. I downloaded these songs so fast and confirmed why I continue to listen to his music. Yeah, he has some seriously vulgar music that's not talking about much of anything, but when he drops some knowledge on us, he seriously does. Even on songs that I'm not crazy about the lyrics ("Yao Ming"), his energy is so crazy that I can't help but bob my head to the song (and for some reason 2 Chainz is growing on me). I'm going to donate to his cause, $1 for every song I enjoy. "Sex, Drugs and Video Games" (the single) and "Amazing" are growing on me, too, so I'm calculating $4 in donations so far.
