DENZIL PORTER SHOWS WHO GOT THE JUICE WITH HIS NEW RECORD “BISHOP”

 DenzilPorterBishop

NEW YORK, NEW YORK APRIL 23, 2013 – Denzil Porter releases his newest record “Bishop”, produced by Christopher “Claws” Stevens.

Bishop, Tupac’s adverse character in the coming of age film Juice, was who came to mind after Denzil Porter completed this track. With a deep New York straight gutter, street feel, “Bishop” tells the story of an unruly character who makes bad decisions after obtaining a new form of power. Denzil Porter raps, “No matter how he cheat death, she ain’t break up with him yet”. Though he gets away with so much, it’s only a matter of time before fate catches up. “Bishop” ends the same way it begins – with the exact thing that gave him this power. This is a rather common ending for those who fall victim to the streets. Denzil raps, “Last thing go through his mind, should’ve never tried nothing”.

“Bishop”, very political like Denzil Porter’s noted song “Intuition”, hits on the very controversial topic of United States gun laws. Just one week ago, the Senate rejected the bill for expanded gun background checks. This law would require private sellers at gun shows and over the Internet to administer background checks through a licensed firearms dealer. Though the majority of Americans feel that this would stop gun violence, there are countless others who feel that especially in urban communities, implementing laws will not change one’s mindset and agenda. “Bishop” proves that guns do not kill people, but rather, people kill people.

NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

DENZIL PORTER RELEASES HIS NEWEST MIXTAPE,

PORTER’S POT

Not Hosted by DJ Drama

NEW YORK, NEW YORK DECEMBER 20, 2012 – Rapper Denzil Porter has just released his highly anticipated project, Porter’s Pot, Not Hosted by DJ Drama.  Tracks include club banger “Rock Paper Scissors”, intimate songs “Heavy Rain” and “Take Me Away” and newly released “The Truth” with skits featuring G-Unit Comedian Jack Thriller.  Porter’s Pot contains production by notable Home Made Music producers Christopher “Claws” Stevens and Mark XLNCE as well as new sound from Da Illfellaz and The Awesome Sound.  Porter’s Pot can be downloaded on DatPiff at http://www.datpiff.com/Denzil-Porter-Porters-Pot-mixtape.432229.html.

Porter’s Pot is short for Porter’s potential.  It is also synonymous with a melting pot, in which you can throw a little of everything in and get a lot out of, making something from nothing.  The pot is significant to every culture, be it a family using it to make soup, a scientist formulating medicine or a witch performing black magic. A pot is the strong foundation mixing and holding everything together as it combines as a whole.

Musically, Porter’s Pot is a collage of songs demonstrating the current culture of music mixed with Denzil’s musical potential.  The main goal for the mixtape is to show people that a host or a cosign is not needed if the music can speak for itself; hence, Porter’s Pot not being hosted by DJ Drama.  Though Porter’s Pot is considered a mixtape, it is easy to get lost in its production and receive it as a full album.

Grab a bowl of Porter’s Pot to see what people are talking about.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DENZIL PORTER RELEASES HEARTFELT TRACK “HEAVY RAIN”

Third single off forthcoming project Porter’s Pot

NEW YORK, NEW YORK OCTOBER 9, 2012 – “Heavy Rain”, Denzil Porter’s third release off his forthcoming project Porter’s Pot, set to release in November, is a very special track produced by Christopher “Claws” Stevens.  The captivating drums, with the keys of the piano put the listener in a place where the strings represent screaming emotion on this song.  When asked the recipe to this track, Denzil says, “Just add 1 bucket of emotion, a cup of aggression, 2 bags of reality, then stir”.

“Heavy Rain” touches on the real stories and despair of Denzil’s brother Donald and two of his childhood friends Stephen and Sunny, who were all locked up unfairly.  It was written by Denzil Porter after receiving a letter from Sunny with proof of his innocence.  “Heavy Rain” is relatable to so many people because unfortunately, this is reality.  Innocent people are locked up all the time from false accusations and receive unfair treatment once inside the system, ultimately trapping them for a much longer time than projected.  When telling Stephen’s story, who has been locked up for almost three years with no trial, Denzil raps, “I don’t know ’bout the time I’m facing, or even why I’m still here/Caught a couple extra cases, I don’t even drink beer”.

In 2009 Denzil’s brother Donald was deported to Jamaica after not paying a $25 fine.  He lived in the United States since he was three years old, attended a specialized high school and was enrolled in college.  Unfortunately, the DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) was not yet passed by President Obama, providing conditional permanent residency to undocumented residents of moral character who arrived in the United States as a minor and graduated from high school.  During transportation out of the U.S., Donald would call and write frequently; never sure of his location or his destination, but knowing he just wanted to go home.  On a call with Denzil heard on “Heavy Rain”, Donald says, “Threw me all over the place… Told my parents I was gonna be in Jersey, told me I was gonna be in PA… man I ended up in Texas”.

At the start of each verse, Denzil Porter begins telling the story as himself before transforming into one of the story’s characters, making the record relatable to people inside the penitentiary as well as those outside who have to deal with the despondency every single day.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK AUGUST 31, 2012 – Rapper Denzil Porter drops his newest track “Rock Paper Scissors” (R.P.S.) off his forthcoming project Porter’s Pot set to drop this Fall.  “Rock Paper Scissors” was produced by Christopher “Claws” Stevens, who also produced Denzil Porter’s recently released “Whole Lotta O’s”, “Ray Bans” and very popular track “Intuition”.
