David Banner Responds To V-Nasty Diss

David Banner checked in with ‘Sway’ In The Morning and addressed a few topics. The main one being V-Nasty dissing him and the use of the “N-word” by other cultures.

On her recent album with Gucci Mane, BAYTL, the Atlanta rapper’s Snow Bunny  raps,

“Got more bricks than houses in Atlanta.  Damn how a white B**ch more hood than David Banner.”

An obvious response to Banner’s thought provoking single “Swag,” surprisingly Banner didn’t get baited and addressed the issue like a grown man.  Speaking on the “diss,” Banner said,


“It don’t bother me at all.  One problem with Hip-Hop is people try to act a certain way and they put it on their sleeve.  I don’t have to talk about the stuff I do. 

He (Caller) just called up and he told the people what I did (for the hood during  Hurricane Katrina).  The stuff I did that was hood, I can’t talk about it on a record.” 

“It’s funny when people tell these kids to be hood and they don’t stay in the hood.  They give the kids this mentality of staying in the hood and that shows you what other cultures think about us as Black people and what’s important to us and how they try to play us Black men against each other. 

The sad thing (if I was to respond), I’m the big mean Black guy.  Regardless of how articulate I am, if I move any kind of way I will always be crucified.

Regardless of these Disney and Paramount deals I’m doing, I’ll always be looked at in that manner so what I realize that as Black people, we have to stop letting people play our culture like that.”

See it’s not up to me to feel a certain way, I feel bad for the people that allow other people to do this to our culture.  I shouldn’t have to say anything, this should be handled…

The funny thing about it, the record “Swag” was never about her.  It was about what we accept as people.  Are we gonna allow people to say this?

Holding no punches, Banner also spoke about some of her handlers, Mistah  F.A.B.  and Gucci. 

“I’m more concerned about the people around her that allow her to feel comfortable enough to do that.

I was actually one of the people that kept folks off of her.  That’s a lil’  girl.  I honesty believe that she don’t know know better and the plight between our races is so much bigger than her.   I don’t think she knows the ramifications and pain of the word…

Here people were not hung from trees and forced to accept the word N-Word.” 

Some pretty explosive words… Peep the video interview below and tell us what you think of this coonery courtesy of V-Nasty and David Banner’s intellectual response…
