Sounds of the DMV | ANKHLEJOHN Interview
P.R.O., formerly known as Pro’Verb, is a legendary lyricist, songwriter, and musical anomaly from PG County, Maryland, who’s opened for the likes of Nas, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Devin the Dude, and Logic. He’s been featured in Complex Magazine (“10 New DMV Rappers to Watch Out For”), Hip Hop Weekly, Washington City Paper, and the Washington Post. He’s also graced the stage at events such as Rock the Bells, SXSW, Red Bull MC Challenge, and A3C. His last project, “While You’re Waiting,” garnered critical recognition from industry peers and fans alike.
Watch as he performs ‘Free Black Man’.
P.R.O. combined his love for hip-hop and community to create the non-profit organization, Will Rap 4 Food Inc., a charity dedicated to providing meals for those in need and encouraging the youth to feed their dreams.
It is rare to find an emcee that excels in the battle rap circuit while also creating songs that bridge the nostalgia, funk, and fire of eclectic genres. His newest project drops this summer and is highly anticipated after 10 years of growth, transcendence, and new perspective. P.R.O., which stands for “Preparation Reaches Opportunity,” has the audacity to believe that we as a people are greater than our greatest obstacles. This belief translates seamlessly throughout his music, imploring us to aim higher and dream bigger.
