On 3rd July it was announced Spawn star Michael Jai White beat rapper David Banner for the role of the new character Mob boss ‘Gamble’ in the Batman Begins sequel ‘The Dark Knight.’
Doubt Banner is worried about losing out to Michael Jai White since it’s not like he lost to a scrub, it went to a highly qualified actor.
In the meantime, David Banner is stated to be working on his latest album “Greatest Story Ever Told” which will feature appearances from Akon, Chris Brown, Jim Jones, UGK, Snoop Dogg, Lil’ Wayne, Carl Thomas and former Xscape singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss.
David Banner is also currently on the “Rock The Bells” tour along side Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Cypress Hill, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, U.G.K., M.O.P., Pharoahe Monch, Doom, Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks and Slum Village.
The movie “The Dark Knight” is expected to be due in theaters July 18, 2008.
In addition, we send our condolences to David Banner and his family on the passing of his father Former District Fire Chief, Zeno Crump Jr.
