“sTuFf In My BaCkPaCk” is a 6-song, EP consisting of new, unreleased songs, produced by Grammy Award winning producer, dEnAuN aka Mr Porter with co-production credits to Dj TJ the King, Cutty Dre and Brandon Williams. It is a refreshing, cutting edge body of work that will provide fans a comprehensive look into the evolution of Porter as both artist and producer. Fresh off the Monster Tour where he performed as Eminem’s hype-man in front of audiences of over 97,000, dEnAuN’s "sTuFf In My BaCkPaCk" demonstrates his uncanny ability to infuse a unique, creative style of wordplay with his signature melodic, yet gritty, Hip Hop beats, complete with infectious, signature drums Mr. Porter is often praised for. The EP contains appearances from Hip Hop notables such as Royce Da 5'9", Phonte, Pharoahe Monch and Jamla Records artist, Rapsody, friends intentionally chosen to provide a sound that gives fans the connection he feels with each of these artists. “For me, this project is the start of sharing music as an artist.” Explained dEnAuN, ”These songs all gave me a retro feel of my favorite time in Hip Hop, which I call the Tribe era, a fun time in music when you never knew what to expect. This is my interpretation of that. This is the #sTuFfInMyBaCkPaCk.” “sTuFf In My BaCkPaCk” is set for digital release in May 7th, 2015 by Mr. Porter's production company, My Own Planet
There comes a time in every man’s life where he has to take a new leap of faith, one that epitomizes the ultimate high wire act, eagerly inching across the tightrope to enter into the great “beyond”; beyond the familiar, limitations, timidity, uncertainties or a certain level of assurance and success. That great “beyond” is a world filled with infinite musical possibilities, complete with a blank canvas with which an artist can create his own destiny, without rules, coloring outside the lines if he so desires. The stage has been set and the time is now for the world to experience the evolution of dEnAuN aka Mr. Porter. Laying to rest his former alter ego, Kon Artis, -the emcee formerly associated with Shady Record’s multi-platinum selling Hip Hop group, D12- dEnAuN emerges with a new found artistic identity, sound and message; one that encompasses all that he is: a visionary, leader, creator, motivator, innovator, underdog and musical mastermind. An enterprise within himself, dEnAuN is also known as the extraordinary, Grammy Award winning producer “Mr. Porter”, who gained immense popularity with the releases of G-Unit’s “Stunt 101″, 50 Cent’s “P.I.M.P” , Xzibit’s “Multiply” among other notable tracks. The success of these singles earned him several accolades and increased the demand for his production. His sound continues to evolve and he often finds himself creating in studios around the world working with a plethora of artists ranging from Jay Electronica to Swizz Beatz and Sting. Mr. Porter’s revolutionary sound can be heard woven through an impressive discography of songs produced for many Who’s Who in Hip Hop including Eminem, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Game, Snoop Dogg, Pharoahe Monch, Slaughterhouse and many others. His credits can also be found on Burt Bacharach’s “Please Explain” and on the Beyonce & Shakira duet “Beautiful Liar”.
