David Banner Speaks of Humble Beginnings on Donnie After Dark – Sunday at 11 pm ET
“I went and bought a converter from Wal-Mart and literally turned my passenger seat into a studio,” said Banner. “So when you hear my first album that went gold, if you listen to the interludes, you can hear the cars passing by ‘cause I literally had a microphone in between my legs while I was driving!”
Banner credits himself as one of the first entrepreneurs to run an online store and he would literally ship his own records in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. He began his music career as a member of the rap duo, Crooked Lettaz, before independently launching his first solo album in 2000 titled, Them Firewater Boyz, Vol. 1. Way to hustle!
