That independent grind is about to be real “Amazing” for one David Banner.
The southern rapper drops his free independent album, Sex, Drugs & Video Games, this upcoming Tuesday and to let his fans know it’s real, he released the video for the up tempo “Amazing,” his collaboration with Chris Brown.
The “Amazing” visuals are creative and definitely display that David Banner charm we all love. The video is shot using stop motion technology, and it features the heads of Banner and Chris Brown photoshopped on various figures.
The video includes scenes like the two rolling the streets in a fancy toy car, the two picking up some Barbies (no Nicki!) and Chris Brown having a dance off with a plastic, toy looking Michael Jackson.
“Amazing” is the first single off Banner’s upcoming Sex, Drugs and Video Games mixtape. The project is free; however, Banner isn’t against fans who wants to show some financial support.
Banner wrote this on the video’s YouTube page:
“”Sex, Drugs and Video Games” is a free mixtape, but Banner is asking for fans to support “The 2M1Movement”. The goal of “Sex, Drugs & Video Games” is to show the world Urban music is still valuable. And how is he going to do that? Banner needs 2 million of you to download this mixtape for free, then he needs the same 2 million of you to donate at least $1 to the movement; but feel free to donate more, as there is no maximum donation.”
David Banner also went on to explain what he means by movement:
“And what is “The Movement” you may ask? This movement is to start controlling our own music, movies and content…PERIOD! As David Banner states “We are not simply characters in a video game being controlled by the invisible hand. Once this donation goal is met, I’m going to shoot a movie that will drop 5-22-2013 and a portion of the donations are also going to charity. Big shout out to Louie C.K. for the motivation.”
You heard the man. Go and support!
