HHNM: You produced 50 Cent’s chart topper ‘P.I.M.P’ but I don’t think you worked with him again after that apart from G-Unit’s ‘Stunt 101’. What’s the reason?
Mr. Porter: Man, when it comes to that situation, we’ve done a lot of records in between. What happened was really just timing. I went different ways and all that. What people don’t realize about 50 is that, that guy held our ship for a long time. We were going through turmoil and 50 was out there by himself. I think that’s the story that should be told. He has been recording music to my beats but they just didn’t make the cut or whatever. 50’s the man though. He held it down for Shady/Aftermath when we weren’t going through a good phase. Dre lost his son, we lost Proof. 50 was out there grinding by himself.
We recently have been talking a lot about some records. Maybe it will happen on his new album, I don’t know. I wasn’t giving it my 110% on the records that I was sending him since I wasn’t in a right space but hopefully, that will change now and we will work soon.
HHNM: So did you recently send him any beats? Any possibility you could land up on his new album?
Mr. Porter: Yeah, actually I am currently looking for a record for him. I gave one record away that was specifically for him. I had to give it to another artist because it was a deadline issue. It had to be turned in, in time.
