The 50 Best Radio Freestyles

45. David Banner & Bun B "First Meeting" (2003)

Station: KPFT
DJ: Matt Sonzala
Best Punchline: "It's goes down I promise/It's goes down with me and David Banner and your baby mama." (Bun B)


On this fateful night in 2003, newcomer David Banner met Underground King Bun B for the very first time. As the story goes, Banner had driven from Mississippi to Houston in his van (where he was living at the time) to record “Like A Pimp,” his breakout (and Pimp C sampled) single, with Lil Flip.

While in Houston, Banner linked with Matt Sonzala to appear on Damage Control radio, and while at the studio he met one of his idols, Bun B. The two immediately hit it off, and teamed up to kick an off-the-dome freestyle over Lil Jon's “I Don't Give A Fuck” instrumental. The whole session was Southern-fried affair, with plenty references to lean, wood wheels, and grills.
