Marquise Porter - In Da City

Posted 8 years ago
Producer:
Saint Denson
Album:
Porter House

Like fellow Motor City MC Obie Trice, rapper Marquise Porter goes by his “real name, no gimmicks.”  This motto also seems to sum up his debut single, where rather than focus exclusively on the street or the club, he paints a vivid picture of life In Da City.  Producer Saint Denson, who gets an A+ for style by using an Eagles sample, provides a beat that is everything a musical accompaniment should be.  It’s powerful enough to set a backdrop, but subtle enough to make room for Porter’s lyricism.  While his writing might not be Detroit’s best (Hey Marshall), Marquise Porter definitely has the heart and soul to make himself at home.
