The funny thing about David Banner is that he's a pimp with a Jesus complex who gets points from people who like neither pimps nor Jesus complexes. Shouldn't this make him the apex of insufferability rather than a sign of promise? Also, judging by "Crossroads," the last track on Certified, his idea of passionate singing is Chad Kroeger. Few of his fans would agree. I know that people (including myself) really just like his wit and beats - his Nickelback track is more interesting than any by Nickelback - but these contradictions are worth remembering.
