#ThrowbackThursday: ProVerb – Heartbeat (video)

In a few weeks ProVerb is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of his debut album The Book of ProVerb.

So obviously as one of the sharpest rappers writers in the game since he stepped on the scene back in 2005 – battling, freestyling and releasing classic after classic, it was only Write that we throwback to his classic sh*t.

The legend goes that Mark Hofmeyr was still an upcoming video director when he approached ProVerb as a fan shoot the video for ‘Heartbeat’ using a concept he was playing around with. ProVerb agreed tentatively. He was asked sit down at a table and to keep tearing pages from a book, even though he didn’t fully understand the how it was going to come together.

Long story short, the video was considered to at the time to be one hip hop’s gamechangers and also catapulted Hofmeyr’s career.
