With every success, David Banner says, he had his fair share of failure. “I failed a lot. People only see the success or they don’t see you no more at all”, the rapper told HipHollywood.
With several top ten hits under his belt, Banner conquered the music world but took a step back to focus on his new passion…acting. Now the “Play” rapper is making a name for himself on the big screen and says his latest role in Lee Daniels’ The Butler changed his life. “It was one of the most powerful movies that I’ve ever been in…It was life changing and because of Lee Daniels people all over the world are asking about me.”
Although the acting thing is going well for David — his next role is in the upcoming comedy Ride Along, starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube — he can’t forget his first love…music. The “Like A Pimp” rapper is back in the studio working on his sixth studio album AND helping Jill Scott with her new project as well.
