Mr. Porter

Rhythm Roulette


For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, MASS APPEAL met up with one of Detroits illest, Denaun Porter. As an original member of D12, Mr. Porter has played an instrumental role in Eminems career and the history of Shady Records. His time with Em goes all the way back to the MCs 1996 debut, Infinite, and Porter has handled many tracks over the years for the MC and his crew, D12. Lets also not forget Porters work for G-Unit, because he was behind the beats for such classics as 50 Cents P.I.M.P. and the groups Stunt 101. Other collaborators over the years include Busta Rhymes, Xzibit and Jadakiss.

Who knows where Em would be without Mr. Porter? As his trusted hypeman on tour, Porter truly knows how to turn it up a notch. And that is exactly what he did for this episode of Rhythm Roulette.

Making a daring leap in the history of RR, Porter remembers that when he was coming up, he only enough money for one record. So in that spirit, he took his chances and only pulled one piece of vinyl from Amoeba Music in Los Angeles.

He ended up with some soulful disco from 1977, a sound that most producers stay away from, but youll be surprised to see how he flipped itinto three different beats!
