from Speaker b/w Suicide Doors promo CD single (SRC, 2007/2008ish)

“Suicide Doors” was an album cut from David Banner’s last album The Greatest Story Ever Told. It’s a nicely produced Banner joint and Pimp steals the show with his “I brought a necklace for my dick/and my nuts got a MySpace page” line. I also really like the Young Dro hook, but the bridge by this Kandi chick kinda kills the momentum for me.

Other than appearing on the album itself, the track only showed up on this obscure-ass promo CD by Banner’s label SRC (Street Records Corporation). It doesn’t have a date on it, but I’m assuming it’s from 2007 or 2008.

Besides including three versions of “Speaker” (the lead single for the album with Akon, Snoop, and Weezy), the single also included a clean version of “Suicide Doors.” You know, in case you got little children running around or you’re offended by all the bad words. But remember, UGK for the kids and if you’re offended by the lyrics, the fuck you doing here anyway?
