David Banner: ‘Sobriety and Meditation Saved My Life’
David Banner recently discussed his seventh studio album, The God Box with Unique Access Ent. opened up about some relatively personal choices, including meditation and sobriety.
Although the outspoken Mississippi-born rapper is the creator of the 2012 mixtape, Sex, Drugs & Video Games, he approaches life and recording differently nowadays:
“Being high ... it allows you to open other portals and put yourself on other levels ... you sort of float wherever the feeling goes. The album I did with 9th Wonder was the first album I ever did sober ... I’m learning to tap into God for meditation and for being still. I don’t need drugs to put myself on that level.”
Banner also gives his view of the n-word and talks about his single “Evil Knievel”, a song he said, "felt God directed me to write."
