Biography

"Hailing from North Bronx NY, Denzil Porter is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Denzil Porter sounds like an artist fresh out of the golden era of Hip Hop. Adding substance to his witty lyrics, catchy hooks, quotes, and highly charismatic performances. What Denzil aims to achieve with his music is to allow its listeners to be inspired and to uplift them and others around them. Denzil may not be your typical conscientious rapper, he derives his lyrics from his experiences and allows his actions to tell his story rather than his words. The music captivates the mind and takes you into the world he envisions and you’ll always leave with " -MTV

"When I get a feeling, or in a mood, or something that happened at that moment… a song is something that stamps that moment for me, and also stamps the moment for the listener who relates."- Denzil Porter

Lights check
Light check
Unplugged
It's good yeah
We're gonna be on the base line

Hook:
Why you gotta be such an asshole
And why you gotta be such an asshole
Why gotta be such an asshole
Why i gotta be such an asshole

She call me ..sad you wanna catch a flick
I aint' doing nothing so i'm with the check
..i win it got my ticker ripped
You independent right by your own ticket bitch
My friends say she was a freak though
So i ask her for some sex under the .. wow
I cross the line like .. at the free dough she walked out at me
But at least i got some slick though
The only man asking for some money i ain't have
I said i'm broke but i can get you food upon the add
That's cool dude but i'm asking you for some cash
Don't know what you a piece of shit just a fucking ass
I said: hey, you're walking to a thousand people in the day
And temperature is in decade if you a dollar in some change
That's a hundred dollar today for seven days a week
That's seven hundred dollar bitch you're making more than me mother fucker

Hook:
Why you gotta be such an asshole
And why you gotta be such an asshole
Why gotta be such an asshole
So i gotta be such an asshole

Going to an old white dinner in all black
Eating with my albums at the table and all that
Burping and eating chicken in the bones out
Free upon the table like i'm in own house
And if you got a problem don't be calling my phone bro
Could be my grandma i'ma answer like yo yo
..to the foulest for the rest i can catch a bullet
i'm on a suicide telling you to pull it
so shawty we just front she said: hold on
i thought ..you hit it got the feeling was so strong on
i say you're cool inside i got a body and soul on
but kind of face i make the naked up put some clothes on
i'm from the city where they love you and hate what you're doing
walking the street i bet they bump you and if you be moving
all lady tell me be a gentleman and get the door
i walk around and told her that she take her too long

Hook:
And why i gotta be such an asshole
And why i gotta be such an asshole
And why you gotta be such an asshole
Why you gotta be such an asshole

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Written By: Denzil Porter

Feel like I'm sitting on TOP of the world

Even though I'm coming from the bottom of the map/

Twisting my finger’s, like it was a bottle with a cap/

If the Homies Got a problem where it’s at?/

Backpack rap but we ain't no campers/

You ain’t in my class, nor campus/

We only do street beef no angus/

But nothing hold me down, no anchors/

No boat, but my ship gon’ sale/

No coke, but my shit gon’ smell/

The rapper they can’t see but they could feel/

Don’t even try touch it cause that shit’s no brail/

No antwon dodson, but a nigga do it so “well”/

Yall fishes but I do it so whale/

Gotta do it big, anytime you tryna take over the world/

If not then you gotta raise hell/

Im feeling like a million bucks

I know im wassup

Got that vodka in my cup

And even when my life is rough

I dont let nothing hold me down

Cause I dont give a fuck..

Nothing hold me down...

::pause::

Got it

Been broke, Been Never had nothing/

Been called trash bin never been stuntin/

Been that crab at the bottom of the barrel/

Been looking at that exit that been look narrow/

Been Right, Even when I Been Wrong/

Been at the top of my empire I'm King Kong/

Been Humble way to long I been calm/

Been ticking hater’s off I been bomb/

BoOm!

Let me change that flow/

And if that girl cheat better change that ho/

Killing em dont be upset tho/

Cause I'm going in on my rough sex flow/

I was told go hard or go home/

And if go home, dont come back no moe/

And I don't play, and you ain't kanye so/

Don't be rushing me off a my show/

Show, show

Gimmie my stage/

Tell the blogspots to gimmie my plays/

Sun and the moon it better gimmie my ways/

It’s my time to shine better gimmie my rays/

Im going off better gimmie my days/

Or back up like new york city highways/

Putting in overtime but it ain't a tie game/

Im ahead of my peers and the head of my team/

For the stars we shooting, the cheerleaders they rootin/

Even if they break the pocket im cutting threw im Cam newton/

No one could stop it and tell’em

No one could stop me now/

And I know my homies got me but nothing could homie down/

Hold me down…

Hold me down…
