Rhythm Roulette: Mr. Porter | Mass Appeal

For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, MASS APPEAL met up with one of Detroit’s illest, Denaun Porter. As an original member of D12, Mr. Porter has played an instrumental role in Eminem’s career and the history of Shady Records. His time with Em goes all the way back to the MC’s 1996 debut, ‘Infinite,’ and Porter has handled many tracks over the years for the MC and his crew, D12. Let’s also not forget Porter’s work for G-Unit, because he was behind the beats for such classics as 50 Cent’s “P.I.M.P.” and the group’s “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 you’ll be surprised to see how he flipped it…into three different beats! Watch the full video above.

  1. Do you know how confident one has to be in their skill set to disavow the rules and pick one record and then one song off the whole album to chop up?! Mr. Porter takes the #1 with ease that was bananas!!

  2. Is there one better than Black Milk and 9ths? Iman Omari's one nice too but I want to see someone really flip cold like Black Milk he turned coal to diamonds lmk. This one tough he did this.

  3. can someone explain what he did for example in the 3rd beat?
    i mean did he create something like the bass line/drums from other vsts or he just used the sounds from the sample?

  4. Mr.Porter is SICK! I was thinking 'he must be Em's favorite producer', then I thought of all the wack beats he raps on and forgave myself for that thought.
