"Hahahaha. You wouldn't like me when I'm...angry bitch! Yeah!"
—David Banner

David Banner is a featured fighter in Def Jam series and is a playable character in Def Jam Fight For NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover.


His rise to stardom was immediate, assertive, and momentous. David Banner broke through the music industry's concrete boundaries with the force of a superhero, single-handedly putting Mississippi on the map as a force to be reckoned with. In the spring of 2003, Banner released his major label debut, Mississippi: The Album, delivering such gems as the hard-hitting party anthem "Like a Pimp" and the conscious and thoughtful "Cadillac on 22's." On the heels of Mississippi: The Album came Mississippi: The Chopped & Screwed Album. This music maestro from Mississippi released his next project MTA2: Baptized In Dirty Water in 2003. The new album focuses on stories about people's lives in the ghetto.
