Tyrese David Banner Lyfe Jennings

Hip hop scholar David Banner, 42, and singer-turned-reality star Lyfe Jennings, 38, nearly came to blows during a tense town hall meeting in Atlanta on Tuesday.

Banner and Jennings joined hip hop VIPs Jeezy and Tyrese Gibson on a panel discussion held at the Hope Church in Decatur.

The “Real Strategy For Change” meeting was called to find solutions to ease racial tensions in the black community after 2 black men were killed by police in Louisiana and Minnesota last week.

But things quickly got heated when, according to Channel 2 Actions News, Banner suggested that the black community force the police to suffer financial and physical consequences for their actions.

"You sound crazy!" Jennings yelped. "I'm a tell you, you sound crazy!"

"What we going through is crazy," said a male voice.

What we going through is crazy, but we ain't gonna create more [unintelligible] by telling these people to bring f_cking guns against the po-lice!" said Jennings as the crowd stood and clapped.

"That's stupid! It's stupid!" he said as the two men squared off on stage.

"Hold on," said peacemaker Tyrese, standing between the two men. Tyrese reminded his friends that his daughter was in the audience.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    When I say I love me some David Banner! As an artist & activist. Don't like the arguing, but glad to see black men engaged in conscious discussion.

  • Karma WhO

    How can we expect change when u got 2 black men going at it over something that was supposed to be positive

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Like I said above, I love me some David Banner!

  • That’s Interesting

    What was tyrese gone do? Fight too?

  • hi-liter

    The only thing that is going to stop police from killing unarmed black men is to make them accountable for their actions. They need to be convicted by jurors and they need to serve just as much hard time as drug dealers, I'm talking life sentences.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This anger is turning us (folks) against each other like a mug.... I ain't got time for this shyt.... Bout to watch breaking bad with beww.... ??

  • hi-liter

    I wonder was that thing real? He just gave it up too easily for it not to be CZ.

    I love you David Banner?

  • T3

    I love David Banner too. I am disappointed that this happened where it happened. That's all we need is yet another thing for them to look at us and shake their heads and laugh at.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Why were they having that conversation with white people and cameras in the room?!?!

    #TrustNoOne

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    They look more passionate than angry/violent to me. No one approached anyone, etc. But I wasn't there so

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile.....

  • LibraGirlonly

    I think David Banner has a lot of knowledge to offer the community but please don't tell people to use violence.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    DB was adamant about no cameras when we saw him speak. He says recordings are always used against, not for, the speaker. Like he stopped 3 or 4 times to different people and was like please don't film me. One girl was all I was just taking a pic, David said yea but when you point the phone at me it seems like you're recording, and I'm doing a pic meet and greet after this. Which he did, and didn't charge for the pics, by the way

  • SaltineCrackers

    You can't be "woke" and sleep at the same time. Smh, they keep setting the same traps and we just keep walking right into them!

  • YaYa

    I agree...but what jury is going to convict a police officer?

  • Pettyville123

    SHAME

  • Full Monty

    Didn't no neck Benzino offer her a ring and then took it back too?

  • Buttercup

    Meh, at least they're arguing over this rather than their favorite sports team. Move along people.

  • MissyJ

    I'm not for violence but I'm not against it either... Trying to get a mostly white grand jury or mostly white trial jury to convict is ridiculous. Sometimes folks only understand the problem through an object lesson. They must understand the pain by experiencing it themselves.

  • Full Monty

    Lyfe need to shut up. I still think he had something to do with his artist La La Brown and her boyfriend getting murked a couple of years ago in their studio.

  • Buttercup

    Have you ever dealt with a child who doesn't respond to redirection, time out, restriction, etc but when you spank that azz they fall in line? Yeah, that child's name is 'Murica.

  • hi-liter

    That's what I'm saying, until that happens, nothing will change.

  • JustMe

    Hi everyone! I come to this site everyday and never comment butttttttttt.... I was there yesterday and this was a moment that's all... A moment. There were other moments that were powerful and they AREN'T being shared by the media. I think what people fail to realize is that when people are passionate about what they believe in, conversations can get heated. Both men spoke their peace, got hype, calmed down, shook hands, and the meeting went on. The media can be the devil y'all! Just think... They are quick to represent those slain by the police in a negative light (mug shots, police records, FB posts, etc.) instead of simply acknowledging the loss of life. There bad moments in life are what is used to represent them... So just how we're offended by those representations, I'm offended that this moment is what is being used to represent the meeting. I love ALL of y'all and probably won't comment again (y'all keep me laughing though)... But stay woke and be blessed!

  • Buttercup

    ???

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Also, take THEIR pensions/retirements, etc and apply them to settlement payouts. They shouldn't get to enjoy any state funds. When military members get a dishonorable, they don't still get vet funds

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    This should be a time of unity for the black community. Lyfe could've spoken to David banner behind closed doors if he disagreed with his points. Geesh

  • MissHarlem

    Lyfe is very comfortable being a house ninja. Mentality speaks volumes. In any event as I said below I'm team Banner ?

  • hi-liter

    Good you were there and could share with us all what really happened. I'm glad they agreed to disagree.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Not always white people who kill us, very often it's US who kill us. Smh

  • hi-liter

    Oh Yas, I agree.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I knew there was more to the story. And side note, stick around in the comment section. I did, it's fun here. LOL

  • LibraGirlonly

    We have to do better. They had no business recording him.

  • testtee

    Lyfe was locked up before... He knows the real truth about in house police brutality... Up close & personal.. He has been trained
    .
    They should respect one anothers opinions tho..

  • MissHarlem

    ???????

  • LibraGirlonly

    I concur

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Until people realize we are all the same watch there will be more shootings..... More riots killings.... ...etc....only then when we learn to respect people as individuals (alone) not by color or differences .... Nothing will change it will get worse..... Thank God there are so many waking up to this.... And if ya someone praising division... Guess what ya still sleep.... Literally.... Hell ya should have been pissed off back in the 90"s truth be told..
    . Hell I was.... Now I'm chill... Paying attention to beauty in life not this anger filled shyt.. And I'm thankful......??

  • Finding Forever…

    Judges too. Two of the cops here in the Freddie Gray case have gotten off by a judge, sadly. Goodson first wanted a jury, but changed that when he saw the other cop get off for prosecutors being unable to prove case. So of COURSE they'll want a bench trial. Has been the case & the judge refuses to step down. Just today (getting voted by the city & he'll get it most likely), Goodson will get unpaid wages in the amount of about $87,000. Porter's trial got hung by a jury & I'm STILL STUCK on these verdicts.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Exactly

  • MissHarlem

    Facepalm. Brainwashed to oblivion.

    Another one

  • Buttercup

    I agree Jenie. The thing is black folks already know this. It's the oppressor that thinks otherwise. Someway, somehow they're going to have to be brought down a notch or two.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Who gaf what they think of us? We've been trying to impress them all this time and they still hate us! LOL

    I'm glad these two men are addressing our issues. Resolution can and will look like many things, so Idk what the answer is, BUT I at least appreciate their tenacity.

  • JustMe

    I can bet my left tit it was more passion than negativity. Y'all should know better in regards to how we're portrayed. Fall for it and you're a sheep as well.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Did he tell them to use violence or to arm themselves for protection? And not against the police but in general?

    Walks in and sees what the topic is and walks right back out. Later y'all

  • SameoleJ

    It is Malcolm and Martin all over again....and there will be more Malcolm and Martins until a true set of Malcolm and Martins step up and finish what they were in the process of doing. This is what TPTB are afraid of....they loved it when those two men were at odds, but when they saw that the division was waning......BOOM!!

  • hi-liter

    It's like they (judges, jurors) don't want to see a cop go to prison for fear of what might happen to them.

    Saw David Banner on Lift Every Voice. Dude talks in riddles.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Some things need not be filmed, closed door, no phones, no cameras, and no standing the hail up. David Banner was WRONG as hail. WRONG WRONG WRONG

  • MissHarlem

    Come on home. Stop fighting ?

  • RespectSelf

    In a perfect world we would all get together and hug and respect each other... In this world, what are the answers? People did a whole lot of peaceful protest when the Trayvon case was going on. And where did that get folks. Despite how the media would like to portray stuff... there have been a whole lot of peaceful protesting... where is that getting folks though? I'm not for the violence. In my perfect world there wouldn't need to be any... But in this world, I can't knock the next man that says that being peaceful is not getting them anywhere any time soon. The ones that think violence are answered are ready to die so that the ones who are not ready to die don't have to get killed while waiting on blacks handling things peacefully to actually works. White people/police didn't just start killing blacks... So in my book black people been handling things peacefully for hundreds of years (for the most part)

  • Noirluv45

    I do believe we need to hit police departments in the financial belt, and we need to demand accountability; however, I do not support physically harming them. Nevertheless, marching, singing, begging, and pleading isn't working. Black people, it's time to unity and hit America in it's capitalist behind until the paddy patrol stops harming our people. Now is the time to unite!

  • nucynu25

    Yesss

  • Finding Forever…

    EXACTLY. A broken damn system & it's sad. They are pissing smack dead in our faces & calling it rain water. Sad that there are "different" rules for different individuals. A crime is a crime & the criminal (regardless of any job, race etc) should face punishment like all others. Medical examiner said the kid's neck felt like a bag of rocks. According to the defense it's his fault because he threw himself around in the van. How? In handcuffs & the fact that NO belt was placed (which is "suppose" to be a requirement). Sad that cds, cigarettes, traffic stops...walking & being black are costing people their lives with no accountability.

  • Noirluv45

    THEY will use every opportunity they can to remain ignorant regardless of what we do. If they really wanted to know what the BLM movement was about, they'd go to their website. They wont' do that because they have a narrative to keep feeding deaf, dumb, and blind people who are too lazy to get information for themselves. Listening to Fox News is easier.

    Why don't black people kids need to be apart of what's going on. The white kids are. best believe they get them kids started young.

  • jussaying

    violence is not going to do anything either except cause government to react and institute martial law. the reason peaceful protests have not worked is because they have marched without a tangible and concrete objective. they have marched to get their point across - to bring attention to the matter - but ultimately they still rely on oppressors to institute change and configure solutions to our problems. that does nothing. you have to look at these issues like a job and a project that needs managing.

    they have identified the problem. go and gather reports, research, statistics to cite the issue and back up your stance with facts - census data, etc. then, identify specifically policy that you take issue with. then, propose solutions to address those specific problems and a budget analysis of how much it will cost to implement. THEN, march... bring attention to city council. request those meetings with congressional leaders. THEN boycott until someone is willing to sit down with you. THEN, give your presentation to city council......

    they've been marching all of this time but i haven't seen any reformation plans of action... that's been the problem.

    Welcome!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Let me preface my comment by saying that I do not want anyone to die.

    I think that as a people we are extremely complacent, forgiving, and at times, simply afraid. If you are complacent (ok) with the fact that you no longer have to use rear entrances, you can ride in the front of the bus, and your child can attend school with yt's then you are not going to be able to comprehend the anger and frustration of this generation/movement. You are oblivious to the fact that we have symbolism and no substance. Those of us that are discontent, unafraid, and unforgivingly fed up with the bs are tired of being tired. The reality is that no revolution has occurred without using violence. The good and decent are often casualties. It isn't pleasant, but it is the way things work.

    The pacifism being pushed by the media is an attempt by the majority to manipulate and shame the minority into further surrendering their rights.

  • nucynu25

    Nothing at all

    Living in a gated community is not this issue either....but nevermind.

    David Banner has committed his time and money to support the black community. Do some research on him and you will find out. We need a plateform and he can provide hat with his status.

  • ThickyFromPhilly

    That was a heated debate. It happens. They shook hands and everything after. Only a snippet was shown from a long town hall meeting that was very good from what is being said, and now this is the headline. They show us what the want us to see and some fall for it so easily.

    You living in a gated community trying to tell ppl who don't how to behave is a problem as I stated Our issue is the system of racism white supremacy which none of these dudes are talking about they're auguring like school children yet they are suppose to be leading us somewhere? gtfoh.

    I'm sure parents of Denise McNair and other 3 girls thought same thing on the Sunday morning of September 15th years ago (1964?). Thing is when it's a gathering of US trying to work out a solution or to pray on it, THEY bring violence. It's not just internal you have to think on. External violence is sadly real threat

  • I aint the one

    That's awesome, Sis. I'm no Lyfe fan but I can appreciate that these black men were at an event to engage with the community and strategize collectively on ways to progress the movement. That is something I am proud of. And don't be no stranger! Especially now that the BLOCKT feature is up and running ?

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Before he lived in a gated spot, he lived IN HIS DAMN CAR.

    Heads to Google thanks & you are absolutely right ..

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    When David Banner first came out, he came with scholarships for kids. He was a NEW artist. He couldnt afford that. But he made it happen. And has been doing every since. Much respect for that cat.

    Amen!

  • SG

    I mean really

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    IDK but that visual is making me laugh

  • whitty hutton

    Yep...and to add to your point, I feel that until we can come together with a conciliatory mindset then will continue to flounder and not accomplish anything.

    Martin and Malcolm disagreed but shared the common goal of protecting and advancing our people. When we don't agree wholeheartedly with someone else's idea, we attack it and criticize OR of someone else's idea garners more support than ours, we shut down and opt out of the process altogether. How abt being supportive of different ideas/strategies if they are for the good of us all even if it means conceding your own idea in the interim.

    honestly, i am guilty of this, but we have surrendered our rights long ago! that's why we're yelling for them now. no one - on a grand scale - votes in our local elections. if you want to ensure YOUR issues are heard and addressed, you have to make sure you get allies in positions of power to help you implement them. back in the civil rights era, they understood AND did that. i agree that we are very complacent - not just black people but white people too. and we have to stop doing that and actually go involved in politics if we want to see things change. otherwise we're going to continue to be outsiders knocking on doors and hoping someone will pander to us.

    And for my Bible peeps. Particularly the one's that like to act like God wasn't about that thug life.

    Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7-8
    To everything there is a Season. A time for every purpose under the heaven.
    A time to tear; and a time to sew. A time to keep silence; and a time to speak up. A time to love; and a time to hate. A time of war; and a time of peace.

    Sprinkle in a little extreme poverty, limited access to livable wages, substandard schools and healthcare and you get massive anger. Massive anger leads to violence. Violence is mostly directed at those closest to you (neighbors, schoolmates, etc.)

    David Banner wants to appear so freaking educated that he sound stupid.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I agree with you in the micro sense but not the macro. The reality is under the Constitution we should be treated equally. Right? It's in the Constitution. Whether we ever vote again, that is already there. However, we are not being treated like citizens. So what is the solution? Vote more? We walked, and sang, and prayed, and cried and we got the right to vote. Their response...poll tax. We voted some more, walked some more, cried some more. They got rid of the poll tax and gave us gerrymandering, the electoral college, re-districting, etc. We cried and begged so our kids could go to school with them. We voted, paid taxes. etc. They took their kids and put them in private/charter schools. They gave us school districts and based funding on property taxes. For every symbolic victory...

    I could go on and on.

    WTF is wrong with David Banner? He's educated and woke, but he's also an ignorant asshole.

  • mela.reign77

    Arguing amongst ourselves is not the answer. We have to learn how to have a conversation even when we disagree in a rational manner. There's no need to name call or get heated, because that's what they want us to do. I agree that we need to take another route, but violence is not going to solve anything at all. Yes approaching the problem from a different objective makes sense but retaliating in a hostile manner is only going to heighten their (police) made up sense of fear of us. They are going to be more forceful with their approach and murder us in droves. We are already on high alert , soon we will be in a war zone literally if we react with violence. For every problem there is a solution, but we must figure out a plan of action and EXECUTE. I tilt my hat to the people that are marching and protesting but at the end of the day where does that leave us. Half are missing work or if they are business owners are missing money. Nothing is getting accomplished and we're back at square one. The media film and report, officers stand on the front line ready to shoot anything that moves, the president makes the same speech every time, the media dig for a mug shot, the mayor of the area try to calm the protestors down by making false promises. It's calm for about two weeks and Bam another police shooting! Serial Killers that's what they are! That's how most serial killers operate, they hunt their prey and attack. Although their different as far as physical feature they still have the same MO at the end of the day. Most hide out for awhile and start the spree over again. Think about it, who's to say this is their first time killing one of our brothers and sisters in this manner? They're to comfortable with doing it, which makes me believe that this a pattern and they have done it before. They just were not caught, that's it. One solution that I offer is how about generating a petition to have legal actions brought against these officers. I mean I really don't know but I do believe we must start making an example out of those who are abusing their position. There has to be something that can or will protect us. I like David Banner and Lyfe , I think they both have some strong beliefs however let's channel that frustration and direct it at the ones that we are really angry at. #HOLDTHEMACCOUNTABLE!!!

    And why are folks always talking abt "we should separate from the rest of society"? I don't begrudge people for living where they WANT to live, whether it be a predominantly Black or White neighborhood. Folks ain't "tryna be White" simply because they live in a predominantly White neighborhood. Simply, people live where they want to live. Same with choices in clothing, shoes and other goods and services. There's no such thing as clothes and shoes for White people. PEOPLE purchase and wear what they WANT to, whether they can afford it or not.

    White people are everywhere, just like we are. There is never going to be any part of this world where Black people or any other race can go and completely separate themselves from every other race. I'm not going to Africa...newsflash, White folks live there too. I try to support Black-owned businesses but will not settle for sub par goods and services JUST because it's a black business. That makes absolutely no sense. I bank, shop and patronize based on my satisfaction with a particular business, regardless of color...as do most PEOPLE in this world. White people are marching, advocating and protesting right alongside us, as well as police officers who continue to protect and serve our neighborhoods so I will not villanize and demonize ALL White people or ALL police officers. There's a way to effect change without painting ALL White folks and ALL police officers with the same broad brush stroke.

    There is another class of blacks who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of useful idiots before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the useful idiots to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

    Money changes folks. I'm always happy to see someone grow from a position of having little to having virtually everything, but there should be some type of balance. I know he worked hard to get to where he is. He is a hustler in a good way. People used to clown him on Twitter, but I agree with a lot of what he says. I took issue with his former hatred of his ex-wife. There's nothing more unattractive IMO than a bitter ass man. I'm glad he is working through it and they're forming Voltron to work for the greater good of their daughter.

    I honestly see them reconciling and having another baby or 2. He needs to just get it over with so he isn't like his peers with a bunch of kids by a bunch of different women.

  • guest

    Because this country uses peaceful measures against their enemies, right? Our people have been killed and abused too long. Why should the violence that is brought upon us be met with nonviolence? That hasn't worked in the past and people are becoming tired with being treated this way. THE Nonviolence method has been used as a way to keep us......docile in the face of extreme violence against us. What is marching or protesting alone going to do? Nothing. It gives people a fake sense that they are doing something and the issues keep continuing. Because who cares about a group of people protesting? No one. But, if the protesting is accompanied with something that is actually felt, that's a different story. Or power is economics. Hit them in the pocket. If enough people do it long enough, it can be effective. But, as I stated earlier, I understand why people may promote violence. People are murdering us like it is open sport and are getting away with it. That is why people are getting so upset.

  • Traci404

    This is insane. we cant even speak to one another with respect. without it getting heated.

    SHUT DOWN College Football. Shut off the cash flow $$$
    No Player Practice nor Play in any games.
    America is about money.

    We arent valued for anything. Except, making millions for the NCAA, ESPN, FANTASY FOOTBALL. Vendors, and Universities

    The football field is the modern day Cottonfield.

    Changed things in less than a week.

    No, an eye for eye. leaves us all blind.

    it is a $10 Billion business.
    and the 85% of the people on the field are Blackmen.

    NO FOOTBALL... and if necessary NO Pro football
    until we have Congressional Hearings on the entire Justice System. and the Policing Policies.

    With plans on how we can have the FBI review all Police Departments.
    And Congress Passes the law eliminating the ability to have Assault Weapons.
    And lastly, Review and Reorganization of all Municipalities that raise revenue and city budgets based on Traffic Infractions.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You are so right, plus every group sticks together and we're only 13 percent of the population. Snoop and Game know we need peaceful solutions, and also know the harassment and violence will worsen! I peeped that long award presentation of the tragic, heroic slain 15 year-old Zaevion Dobson (black on black violence) on the Espy Awards, that was also a strong message to BLM supporters! We don't own the infrastructure, strong economic engines, or as many arms, plus, it's stupid to exact revenge on innocent people, or fight physically, when we fight against systems and institutions, perceptions and narrow-mindedness!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Lyfe Jennings has had his share problems, so he's speaking firsthand! We don't need a civil war because people will just be missing, there are plenty internment camps, and many self-made militia have bunkers and plenty of arms, so massive civil unrest (randomly killing white people) won't work out for us! All those civil war reenactment enthusiasts (Trump supporters) would love to go to battle, in hopes of making America great again (Jim Crow)! We need peaceful solutions, strategic approaches for beneficial outcomes, not total anarchy!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    It takes ALL to make the change.
    Many "people of color" are thinking with a gang mentality - "They got us so we need to get them". Violence begets violence and the cycle never ends. The Bible even says "A mild answer turns away rage, but a harsh word stirs up anger." - Proverbs 15:1
    Someone has to apply that principal for this to end. Take a stand, but be smart. Learn ow to protect yourself and your families the best you can by doing your best to stay one step ahead of your persecutors. All the violence in the world means nothing if your family never gets to see you again

  • Simone

    Reality Check: My Mom is from Trench Town Kingston, Jamaica. I've been there and that is a third world nightmare. America is still the greatest nation on Earth & that's why people still risk their lives on makeshift rafts via water or people climb over walls to get here. That's why my Jamaican-born parents came here legally. This is still the land of opportunity if you work hard and are a law & abiding citizen. As for Donald Trump he has not been our President for the last 7 years. Have you seen the unemployment numbers lately? Black people are at the highest unemployment level under this Black President. Is that ok because he's Black? He supports amnesty (to let illegal Hispanics stay here) & he supports importing more illegal immigrants here. My Black Uncle who's a GC cannot secure contracts because he's outbid on construction projects by GC's that hire illegal immigrants (less wages off the books & no health benefits). Lastly, the world is laughing at us because we turned our back on God & what this country was founded on by legalizing marriage between gay people and because we've been hit my Islamic terrorist twice this year (14 dead in San Bernardino, CA and 49 dead in Orlando, Fl) and this President does nothing. In fact, he's importing in 10,000 Syrian refugees this year. And Hillary Clinton gets away with her illegal emails that put our national security at risk. So yes, the world does laugh at us but for the reasons I stated. If you wish to, go research what I said - they're facts.

    Peaceful hasn't worked for us yet. And why are "WE" so concerned about people accepting the way we do things. Sounds like AGAIN looking for acceptance from others.

Sounds like AGAIN looking for acceptance from others. I'm not advocating violence and that's not what I initially think David Banner was talking about. He is just saying Damn its "Common sense." Your life in danger --- even when you are not a threat -- you gotta protect yourself.

    I agree with lyfe & I'm glad he said it, nobodies going to take us serious when we prove ourselves to be violent ppl once again by killing cops & random ones at that, these fake as activists got the black community looking real bad right now & it's helping nothing. My opinion & I'm not changing it so don't waste ur time

    What an idiot, your own people are the ones murdering each other at an amazingly high rate. 3000 murders in Chicago this year 90% black on black . Cops have killed 900 people total in this country since last year and only 7% was white cop killing black person, and most of those were armed black people. You need to wake up.
