Gun violence, police brutality and racism in America are among some of topics discussed in David Banner's "My Uzi" featuring Big K.R.I.T. and it's also an ode to a an old school David Banner track.

"My Uzi" uses a sample of David Banner's "Suicide Doors," particular the verse from UGK's Pimp C. The production on the song is top notch and he also adds another ode to composer John Debney towards the end of the track according to HotNewHipHop, who premiered the song earlier today.

Banner himself has been dabbling in scoring himself as XXL reported that the rapper was scoring the new "Footloose" film along with work on the new "Street Fighter" game.

Adding fellow Mississippi native Big K.R.I.T. brings another talented rapper to the table to discuss the social and political topics that resonate through the song.

K.R.I.T. raps that his "mother is worried about him grinding all of the time because the government doesn't give a f*** about poor folk," while Banner raps "they say this s*** is bout black and white, all this s*** is pretty Freddie Gray," tying in race relations in the United States with police brutality cases that seem to be on a steady rise.

It's cleverly done with production that rivals many of the hottest tracks out right now. You can listen to "My Uzi" over at HNHH.
