David Banner & 9th Wonder Give An Early Glimpse At Video For First Single From Death Of A Pop Star
“New hip-hop wonder duo, David Banner and 9th Wonder, are quickly building excitement for the release of their initial effort together, Death of A Pop Star, which will be released this summer via David Banner’s own Big Face Entertainment. Already having created buzz with a release of the album’s first single, “Slow Down,” the Mississippi/North Carolina duo have recently shot a video for the single and, while the video is receiving finishing touches, David Banner and 9th Wonder are satiating fans with a behind the scenes look. Although music, rather than image, is the focal point of the duo’s Death Of A Pop Star collaborative album, it appears the two have no trouble coming up with visuals, or having fun on the set. From joking around with videographers, to introducing stylists and make-up artists, to showing off a fresh pair of Jordans, David Banner and 9th Wonder are clearly having a great time. Closing the Behind The Scenes look is a brief, exclusive glimpse at the shooting of the actual video.”
9th Wonder has a history of teaming with legendary emcees and crafting dream projects that have resulted in both critical and commercial success. A producer from North Carolina, 9th Wonder started his career as the main producer for the hip-hop group, Little Brother. Leaving Little Brother after their second album together, The Minstrel Show, 9th Wonder has since become a producer and emcee in his own right. Working with MURS, Nas, Beyonce, Jay-Z and more, 9th Wonder has made a name for himself in the hip-hop world. Also known as his rapper alterego, 9thmatic, 9th Wonder is a modern-day hip-hop renaissance man.
Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi, David Banner has made a name for himself on the hip-hop scene since 2000. Since then, he has released four studio albums and even became a celebrated producer like producing smash hits like T.I.‘s “Rubberband Man,” and having smash hits of his own like “Get Like Me“. David Banner’s most recent successes include writing, producing, and arranging (with guidance from Jimmy Smith and The G Team at Chalt Day) the new non-hip hop Gatorade theme song “Evolve,” performed by Kermit Quinn. Teaming up with 9th Wonder may seem like an unusual collaboration but as the two talented artists come together, their initial album will leave a deep impression on fans.
