After his high voltage performances, the often underrated southern rapper sat down and discussed his hometown, hurricane Katrina and his upcoming album, due in stores July 15, which he assures is 'The Greatest Story Ever Told.'
"I did this album like a mountain. My mentor said even if your album is up here and it stays at the top, it's still going to be boring to people. You have to have peaks and valleys." Not only does Banner's new project have "peaks and valleys," but the album also has a slew of superstar collaborations, including guest spots by Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, Akon and Lil Wayne.
