It looks like David Banner is finally coming back home to Southern University.

Born in Jackson, MS, the rapper, record producer and actor wrote on his Twitter account that at one time he was banned from speaking as SGA president due to his views on “closed admissions” during his second semester at Southern, and will return to the place that “helped me become a better man,” he says.

Banner also says that prior to his coming back home, Southern had banned him for years from performing at the historically black university.

We’re still unsure exactly what Banner will do while visiting his alma mater on Sunday, but will update as soon as the information becomes available.


The rapper and occasional actor David Banner says he might hang with some friends and chill on the yard during his first time visit back to Sourthern in years on Sunday…


  1. I want to say something positive about SU but I cant think of anything besides great band!! SU was a brief and unfortunate stop in my life. Not many pleasant experiences. That goes for the staff and school as a whole. Glad to see Banner isn’t holding a grudge.

    • I had a wonderful life changing experience at SU!!!! It’s where I became a man. I’m eternally grateful to this institution.

      • I know some who have the same sentiments about their time there. I know some who feel the complete opposite. I know ppl who felt as though they were discriminated against while applying to jobs due to being an SU grad. So to each it’s on life changing experience I guess!
