David Banner is one of those artists that I go back and forth on all the time.  Once in awhile he makes a nice hit like "Get Like Me" and "Like A Pimp " but then he will disappear for a few years and you kind of forget about him.  He's not the best rapper by any means but he does drop some knowledge and touches on some serious subject matter that most rappers just completely ignore.  He is definitely one of the more lyrical southern rappers and I feel like he doesn't always get the credit he deserves. 

On the other hand, I love anything produced by 9th Wonder.  He's one of those producers you instantly recognize as soon as you hear those hard drums and snappin' hi hats.  He's got that soulful old school sound that no one else is really using which makes his tracks stick out from the other garbage being produced these days. 

"Slow Down" is a real dope track and if this is a sign of things to come, this could be a hot collaboration.  I can't find an official release date for the new David Banner & 9th Wonder album Death of a Pop Star but I'm sure it will be fairly soon if they are already releasing videos.
