DENZIL PORTER RELEASES HIS NEWEST SINGLE, “KANYE WEST”
Is being an asshole a natural thing?
BRONX, NEW YORK SEPTEMBER 27, 2011 — Rapper Denzil Porter releases his newest single “Kanye West” off his upcoming project Home Made Music. “Kanye West”, produced by Mark XLnce, was inspired by the stereotypical New York City resident. New Yorkers: hardworking, tough and outspoken are often viewed to those outside of the city as just plain assholes. Denzil explains, “I feel like it’s just in our blood to do what we do and say what we say when we want to. Although we look at it as how we live, outsiders look at is as rude and obnoxious”.
After adding some witty lyrics inspired by real life events, Denzil Porter knew he needed a chorus that the crowd could chant when performed live like “Haymaker”, but a lot more comical like the song’s storyline. When asked why not just name the song “Asshole”, Denzil responds, “The title was selected because I wanted to use the most famous asshole that accepts his role as an asshole as much as the rest of us do. No diss intended”.
Since the song was debuted in Canada when Denzil Porter opened up for Kendrick Lamar, the demand for a video and the song’s release were high. The video, directed by Ulysses Adams and Fiona Amara stars Wreckhouse members being assholes in different ways. This ranges from stealing candy from a little girl to beating up a homeless man. The visuals were easily laid out in the song.
Though the word “asshole” has such a negative connotation, the song is meant to be funny and embraced by New Yorkers and assholes all over. Laughing, Denzil Porter concludes, “I’m pretty flattered when people call me an asshole nowadays”.
