Alternating between the names of Kon Artis and Mr. Porter, the D12 member has been one of the most-reliable producers on Shady Records. At times, Mr. Porter has also served as a producer for Dr. Dre’s label, Aftermath Entertainment. While many may not know him for his own rhymes, Mr. Porter has served some memorable beats.
