David-Banner Talks About His Inspiration Behind The God Box And More – The Hype Magazine

What was your inspiration behind your latest project “The God Box”?

It was less to find a way to make this new level of consciousness that I have been able to achieve or tap into to make it make sense musically. I a lot of records where people are trying to take their thoughts to another level does not make sense musically as far as current content.  So, I wanted to create something that even if the audience did or didn’t understand the material it was still jamming. If you listen to the song “Black Fist” The beat might distract you to the point where you might not know that the song is about social change.

Why was it so important for you to visit some of these smaller cities to teach during the God Box Lecture Series?

It was so Important for me to start in these smaller cities because I’m from Jackson Mississippi and people do not visit these smaller cities.  They are the ones that need help the most and places like Birmingham Alabama and Jackson Mississippi are the same places where our people died fighting for equality. People like Martin Luther King Jr. and Elijah Muhammad who is from Georgia is where our families originated from and where they are the most oppressed and that is why I decided to concentrate on these places. This is bigger than just music and selling a record.
