Pro’verb ft. KT & D.C. Don Juan - County

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Kokayi
Album:
While You're Waiting...

Hennepin County, what up! While rap has a long and illustrious tradition of hometown, state and regional pride, it’s relatively rare that an emcee shows love to his or her County. Here to buck this trend is DMV

Prince George’s County, Maryland representer Pro’Verb, with the latest leak off his Booth-sponsored street release. Here, Kokayi‘s sparse, funky bass riff and rolling percussion set the mood for an edu-taining tour of the P.G. The headliner keeps it real, waxing poetic about the female residents of “Pretty Girl County” while expressing some ambivalence about the area’s music scene and socioeconomic status: “Everybody rap, at least it seem like it / Richest black county, but it don’t seem like it.” Assisting on the guest tip, K.T. paints a more pessimistic picture of the opportunities offered to P.G. youth (”Marco Polo my ass, nobody ever felt for me.”), and D.C. Don Juan brings the record home with a closing 16 that drips with local color:”Shout to Landover, shout-out Temp Hills / I sell music for a living, shout to Kemp Mills.” Has this P.G. anthem left you craving more from Pro’Verb? You’ll find what you seek on the emcee’s While You’re Waiting… mixtape, available here for free streaming and download.
