“Heavy Rain” touches on the real stories and despair of Denzil’s brother Donald and two of his childhood friends Stephen and Sunny, who were all locked up unfairly. It was written by Denzil Porter after receiving a letter from Sunny with proof of his innocence. “Heavy Rain” is relatable to so many people because unfortunately, this is reality. Innocent people are locked up all the time from false accusations and receive unfair treatment once inside the system, ultimately trapping them for a much longer time than projected. When telling Stephen’s story, who has been locked up for almost three years with no trial, Denzil raps, “I don’t know ’bout the time I’m facing, or even why I’m still here/Caught a couple extra cases, I don’t even drink beer”.
In 2009 Denzil’s brother Donald was deported to Jamaica after not paying a $25 fine. He lived in the United States since he was three years old, attended a specialized high school and was enrolled in college. Unfortunately, the DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) was not yet passed by President Obama, providing conditional permanent residency to undocumented residents of moral character who arrived in the United States as a minor and graduated from high school. During transportation out of the U.S., Donald would call and write frequently; never sure of his location or his destination, but knowing he just wanted to go home. On a call with Denzil heard on “Heavy Rain”, Donald says, “Threw me all over the place… Told my parents I was gonna be in Jersey, told me I was gonna be in PA… man I ended up in Texas”.

This dude is nice as hell.
But here’s a video a little older then the last one we posted (“Kanye West”). He got the city rocking with him and he spits the truth. This video takes you on a ride through White Plains. It’s good to see a New York native doing his thing, keeping it positive and remaining real about it all. He puts you on to some New York ish and makes it all flow lovely.
