David Banner ft. Young Jeezy - Hello

Posted 8 years ago
David Banner
The Greatest Story Ever Told

As a result of the commercial success of his first four albums, his highly-publicized political activism following Hurricane Katrina, and his on-screen debut in the film Black Snake Moan, David Banner has quietly become one of the most recognizable rappers below the Mason-Dixon Line.  He is ready to once again build up that resume with his upcoming album, The Greatest Story Ever Told, out July 15 on Universal Records.  One of the confirmed tracks from the album is Hello, a self-produced, slow-moving affair characterized by its dirty south drums, sprinkled handclaps, and an oozing, high-pitched synth.  Lyrically, Banner doesn’t try to forge any new paths, sticking to familiar rhymes about living the dream.  He is assisted by Young Jeezy (well, sort of), whose heavily-articulated vocals on the hook give the track a real Southeastern feel.
