Career[edit] Born in North Carolina[1] on December 7, 1978, Denaun Montez Porter[2] moved with his family to Mississippi
and later to Detroit
when he was 10 years old. His father, Charles, is a gospel singer and former member of the Blind Boys of Alabama
Blind Boys of Alabama
and The Christianaires; his mother is a writer.[3] Porter started his career with D12
in the mid-1990s. He was inspired to rap and produce after hearing A Tribe Called Quest's song, "Bonita Applebum."[1] Throughout his solo career, he has both produced and performed vocally as a rapper and singer, producing songs for many notable artists such as Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Royce da 5'9" and 50 Cent
50 Cent
(producing the 2003 song "P.I.M.P.").[4] He is also officially signed to Eminem's label Shady Records
Shady Records
as a producer and has worked with Shady artists Slaughterhouse, Bad Meets Evil, 50 Cent
50 Cent
and D12. Mr. Porter is now most notably seen as a hype man in Eminem's live shows, to add extra effect to shows or to allow Eminem
to take a breath while in mid performance, replacing fellow D12 member Proof who died in 2006. Porter was a co-executive producer, with Eminem
and Royce da 5'9", for Bad Meets Evil's debut EP Hell: The Sequel. He also has a cameo appearance in their music video "Fast Lane", as well as "Forever" by Drake featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
and Eminem, and Eminem's single "No Love" featuring Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
and then in 2013 he featured in Eminem's "Rap God" video alongside other members of Slaughterhouse. On April 2, 2012, Porter formally announced that he had left D12. He stated that he wanted to focus on being a solo artist and producer, but clarified that he holds no animosity toward other members of the group.[5] Two years later in late 2014, he rejoined D12
and contributed a verse to the song "Bane" on the Shady Records compilation album, Shady XV, released on November 24, 2014. In January 2015, he appeared on D12's The Devil's Night Mixtape.[6] Discography[edit] Main article: Mr. Porter production discography Instrumental albums[edit]
