Up and coming NY rapper Denzil Porter recently sat down with us at his old elementary school for a chat. He talks about his childhood, growing up in the North Bronx, French Montana’s new album, his music, the “Subway Series” track with 360, the upcoming mixtape with Omen, definition of success, his latest track “Bishop” and more.
This first time you may have seen Doley over at the dopehouse, he was a guest feature on Raven Sorvino’s “Mona Li$a.” Now the Uptown-reared artist drops his own track from his upcoming EP, Just In Case.
Third single off Denzil upcoming project, Porter’s Pot, due out this November.
“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”.
