Pro'Verb is a music anomaly. In the world of hip-hop, it is rare to find an emcee that excels in the battle rap circuit, but can also create songs that gets everyone from the college girl to the blue collar worker to relate and vibe with. That in itself makes Pro'Verb a different breed of emcee.

Biography

Having derived his name from the Biblical book of Proverbs, wisdom has always been something the Charlottesville, VA born and Prince George's County, MD raised lyricist has valued. His entrance into the music world came about because he was the victim of bullying as a kid. "I used to get bullied by a kid in middle school. He would crack jokes on me all the time, so I learned how to rap battle. I became really cool because of it, and was revered as the 'rapper guy' in my class. I really wanted to start making actual songs when i heard Mos Def's 'Ms. Fat Booty'. It was an incredible story. It felt like it was just a regular real life story. I liked the realism of it. I would have to say he's probably one of the sole reasons i wanted to pursue this as a career."

Pro'Verb's lyricism and clever wordplay is a staple that grabs listeners by the ears, captivates their minds, and enriches their souls. One of his many fans proclaimed on a radio show that "Pro'Verb is a lyrical prophet". Those lyrics have lead Pro'Verb to hold many coveted titles, such as Grind Time Now battle league champion, and Ultimate Mic Night Champion for DC's WPGC 95.5 radio station. His most famous battle however took place in 2008 when he dropped "PSA". The song was his response to Jay-Z's dis track going at the Washington Wizards during their playoffs matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The song garnered Pro'Verb national attention from the likes of The Washington Post, Hip-Hop Weekly Magazine, and even NBA baller DeShawn Stevenson who then was a member of the Wizards team Jay-Z took issue with.

2011 marks a new era for Pro'Verb. Having graced the stages of the likes of Rock the Bells and SXSW, he is out to show the world his full depth as an artist. The summer release of his highly anticipated While You're Waiting...will be Pro'Verb's first mixtape since 2008. Singles released from the project so far, "Dreamin" featuring Tiffany Harley and "Too Hip-Hop" featuring yU of Diamond District, have already received rave reviews from sites such as ABC 7 affiliate TBD.com, The Washington City Paper, and DJBooth.net.

Pro'Verb is definitely on a mission to leave a positive stamp in the music industry. "I am more than just another rapper," he says. "I like to think of myself as a visionary..."

Verse 2

They like ALLPROALLDAY what it fell like??
To have them thin follow you in real life
No twitter game, I do my thing
No superman, but I'm in my lane
It's in my name, baby ima pro
Verb about that action baby you ain't know?
Well I do, I think that's what my problem is
Does my intelligence come across as cockiness
If in ask for massage, does that make me a misogynist?
She keep saying I'm fresh, is that why they call them compliments???
Or maybe it's just common sense
This is what happens when that swagger meets some consciousness

Chorus

She say that I'm the bomb
She say that I'm the greatest
She say that ima beast
She say that I'm her favorite

All she think about is....
All pro all day (x4)

And when I make it big that I better not forget her

All she think about is...
All pro all day (x4)

Don't Get Mad, Get Money

Written By: PRO'Verb

Verse 1

I want it all...I want it all
That's how I thought as a younggin I just wanna ball
Gotta hit that mall and cop me something that I can't afford
Maybe them Jordans, yeah these rappers be like dentists they tell me I need to floss
Now I wanna be the boss, Cabernet Sauvignon
I never smoked a cigar but it looked cool on the stars
A young entrepreneur its comin out of my pores
I give her standing ovation she gimme round of applause aww
Now I'm caught up in that rapper life
Got me thinkin I'll pay for it in the afterlife
But I done seen these bammas on that ain't half as nice
Prolly why I wasn't acting right...acting right
Cuz they don't trip when you packin right
Take my Chips and them stack em' right
Women like a nigga wit money
Thats why they be in the hood trappin white
And beef be they appetite
Prolly strapped with that gat or knife
Round my way they keep that thing tucked tucked hermaphrodite
Not traffic lights but its all green
I guess in one way or another we are all fiends
Cash rules everything around me its called C.R.E.A.M.
So don't get caught up on the wrong team

Hook
They like awww....I think they mad that I'm on.
Just look at how I weather the storm
You see them haters gon hate
But we don't talk about em we just get this cake some more
Feelin like I'm already home
They love it when you all in your zone
But if them them haters still hate
Next time you see em' just tell em to they face

Chorus
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money

Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad, get get get money

Verse 2

Paper respect paper
Dollars respect dollars
With them dollars youngins holla that look like Dj Eskada
Yeah they badder than a mug tho
However bad a mug is...
Fresher than that Dougie, but thinkin like Fredrick Douglass
Mixed with Warren Buffet, something they aint touchin
I cop I cop...I cop I cop, but I'm never cuffin
Right? Cuz they aint doin me no damn favors
That's why 'm focused on this green like a landscaper
Word to my man Vada life is a beach
I'm just tryin to get this sandpaper without pullin damn capers
I pray to mans maker like dear God would you give this humble man favor
If its in your plan thank ya
And if not, then we gon struggle till we get it
Cuz the blessings in the journey I'll be happy that I did it
That's why when them haters hate its so funny
I tell em don't get mad get money yeah

Hook

Oh...I think they mad that I'm on.
Just look at how I weather the storm
You see them haters gon hate
But we don't talk about em we just get this cake some more
Feelin like I'm already home
They love it when you all in your zone
But if them them haters still hate
Next time you see em' just tell em to they face

Chorus
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money

Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad get money
Don't get mad, get get get money

Oh we about to ball out
Just got my check morrow I might call out
Like we about to ball out
Just got my check tomorrow I might call out.
