Editors’ Notes

Another in the crop of one rapper/one producer collaborations that have been dropping all over the place in 2010, Death of a Pop Star pairs up North Carolina producer 9th Wonder (Little Brother, Justus League, Jay-Z, Destiny's Child, etc) with Mississippi hit maker David Banner, for a short but sweet project that has critics and fans alike equally impressed. 9th is generally associated with chilled out, sample-saturated beats, while Banner is known for his highly aggressive, over-the-top vocal style. What may sound like a curious combo on paper works extremely well; together, they rub off on each other perfectly, resulting in a conceptual project that is neither too crunk nor too low-key. Far from your standard Dirty South anthems, the ten tracks here give 9th a chance to stretch out and deviate from his usual style (he also flexes on the microphone a bit), while Banner unleashes a flurry of rhymes that are insightful, intelligent, and profoundly entertaining.

With the help of his crew, he managed to sell over 10,000 copies of his first album in his hometown alone. He broke out nationally in 2003 with a pair of albums, Mississippi: The Album and MTA2: Baptized...
