ONE OF THE GREATEST MIXTAPES EVER CREATED!!! YA'LL NEED TO TAKE NOTES!!!
David Banner – Undaground Vol. 1
While a lot of artists are just riding off their mixtapes alone, David Banner's first mixtape was released alongside his album and the infamous Missippippi, in 2003. David Banner Undaground Vol 1 is a Classic worthy enough to go down in the Hip Hop hall of fame because it's still hot and relevant…and it was/is good enough to ride on its own, unlike mixtapes being produced today with the same beats jacked from the internet!
David Banner put this treasure personally in my hands in Miami while he was promoting MISSISSIPPI. What he also did was make sure that the 'soundtrack' on the mixtape was distinctive to his flavor. He threw out mixtape after mixtape to promote his ALBUMS, not the other way around, because he knew it took more than just luck! And when you hear this mixtape, it clearly defines Banner's uniquie deep Southern sound.
He absolutely sounded like NOBODY else, and this was a perfect presentation, not only for his style, but to accompany the release of his 2nd full CD, MISSISSIPPI. My take is, alot of artist need to study Banner and take notes. If you want to do a mixtape, then do one like this and then take heed from King of Mixtapes…David Banner
Below I've included my favorites from the CD (DAVID BANNER UNDAGROUND VOL 1) AND a HARDCORE freestyle with Banner and Bun B.
