My MCM – David Banner

thILE4EDSRBefore I ever knew what he looked like, I had a crush on Lavell William Crump, aka, ‘David Banner,’ because of something he said in the sex issue of either the Source, or XXL, many moons ago. I think it was XXL with Foxy Brown on the cover, but I could be wrong.

A man with a book is a sexy sight to see.

He said something about women, which I can’t recall, but it seriously intrigued me.

thB0836KDGI watched him during the congressional hearing on racism and misogyny in hip hop. A hearing which completely offended me as a hip hop fan, as a black women, and specifically as an African American. Of all the things that ail this country, particularly in the way of racism and misogyny, hip hop is what garnered the attention of Congress? Total bullshit. Hip hop, just like any other art form, reflects what’s happening in the world. So I love when he said, “Hip hop is sick because America is sick.” Tell em David!
