I was ready to hate on this song if it was David Banner straight up condoning what TI (quite possibly) did. Because that would basically amount to the audio version of a Free-TI shirt***. But after listening to it (and I apologize for the racially insensitive hook, but hey, that’s Banner’s creative right) , its more a condemnation of TI’s bodyguard. And that part I can understand, because TI’s bodyguard actually “snitched” in the true definition of the word…and not the Camron-60-Minutes-Serial-Killer-Next-Door-Just-Move-To-Another-Building definition of the word. But then, Banner launches into a dead-prez-ish rant about community vigilantism, which just isn’t realistic.
“thugs grab your AK’s, girls grab your 22′s…”
um….yeah, that’ll help.
David Banner’s “B.A.N. (The Love Song)” dirty version
(***speaking of which, the other day I saw some hipster f–k walking on Houston St., wearing a streetwear tee with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il on it…That is some extra dumb shit. Pissed me off. I know its cool to rock some rhinestone hoodie with Scarface or Jason Voorhees on it, but that’s Hollywood. This is real life. Do these idiots even know who Kim is besides just a crazy looking Asian guy? Yes, he has a funny hairdo but he’s also starved an entire country to death while he prints counterfeit $ and pushes drugs to support his sick habits. And if you do something he doesn’t like, you go to a concentration camp. Oh and so does your whole family. And after you die, your kid’s kids still have to stay in the camp because they had the bad luck of being related to you. But, who cares! My tee-shirt looks fresh!)
