"Get Like Me" is the second single from David Banner's sixth album, The Greatest Story Ever Told. The song features Chris Brown and samples several lines from Yung Joc's "It's Goin' Down". The song originally featured Jim Jones but label troubles prevented him being featured on the single. The song samples Yung Joc, who, while appearing in the music video, is not officially credited or featured.
Music video 
The video was shot at Los Angeles and directed by Ulysses Terrero. Chris Brown guest-stars in the video, as does Yung Joc. Cameos include Barry Bonds, Gabrielle Union, and the Maloof family brothers Gavin and Joe. The music video was released May 13, 2008 on BET's 106 & Park, but was leaked a few days earlier. Banner is seen at two points in the video wearing a shirt saying "I miss Pimp C", a reference to the deceased southern rapper. He also goes on and says in the song, "I got Chad in my heart, and DJ Screw in my cup." Chad was Pimp C's first name.
Lil Wayne did a freestyle of "Get Like Me," entitled "Stuntin" with Drake, on his mixtape Dedication 3. The official remix features Jim Jones.
The song first appeared on the Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles at number 110 but that version featured Jim Jones after two weeks on the chart, peaking at 93, it fell off so the official single without Jim Jones could chart. This single has proven to be David Banner's second most successful to date, hitting #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, after "Play", which hit #7.
