David Banner, a forefather of Southern rap and Mississippi hip-hop in general has created plenty of memorable tracks, whether it be by teaming up with Big K.R.I.T. (2011’s “Sookie Now” off ReturnOf4Eva) or with the South in general (Pimp C for “Suicide Doors” off Banner’s 2008 The Greatest Story Never Told). So, it should come as no surprise to you or me that Banner and K.R.I.T. are at it again for “My Uzi,” one of the first singles from Banner’s upcoming The God Box album.

“They say this shit is ’bout black and white, all this shit is pretty Freddie Gray,” Banner raps on the third verse of “My Uzi,” a song built off the “my uzi weighs a ton” line from Pimp C back in 2008. By the time he bobs and weaves in lyrics about getting more attention about a single store being robbed and the general unrest of blacks in America, he and Krizzle have pretty much laid waste to the beat. To the victor (that would be us, the listener) goes the spoils. Stream “My Uzi” below, grab it on iTunes and await The God Box when it arrives later this year.
