“This is meant for people that understand the language of music,” Denaun Porter’s mixtape begins, “this is not for the shackled brain. Not to sell or be sold, just enjoyed.” Mr. Porter, as he is known to the music community, became a Grammy-award winning producer working tracks for Eminem, Dr. Dre, Royce Da 5’9″, Pharoahe Monch, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes and more. Now it seems Porter has found a muse in the music of Robert Glasper.
Mr. Porter explains, “Long story short, I am a fan of Robert Glasper. This project contains samples of music of his from the internet, official releases, and even live performances I saw on YouTube. Porter Chops is a representation of when, I feel, the business side of things interfere too much with my creative process.”
Porter reportedly put together this album in nine days, a testament to the powerful inspiration her felt during the process. Check out some videos from the project that dropped this past week as well:
