Amoeba Review

05/16/2017

“Hip-hop hasn’t changed. I think the environment has and hip-hop is just a reflection of that,” says rapper David Banner. And he makes it clear that hip-hop has a place in America's current political climate. Following his excellent mixtape Before The Box, The God Box has been in the works for years. After being delayed multiple times, it's finally here. Tying it in with a lecture series he's been doing across the country, David Banner rejects the worst habits of mediocre hip-hop and makes an album that embraces deep thought, political ideology, and black identity. It rejects the stereotypes that have formed around the biggest hits of modern rap and embraces a socio-political message that seemed to be radiating from the genre in the mid-2000s. The album's first single, "Who Want It" featuring Black Thought of the Roots and the trio Watch the Duck, is an angry, loud manifesto and letter to 2017. The fact this album took so many years makes sense as it explodes with energy and rawness from the first bang of the first track. It's only a taste of The God Box; an album ready to be a cry to arms for the socially conscious and the open minded. It's not just what hip-hop needs, but what music needs.
