WATCH | Lit Proverb vs Stogie T video resurfaces online, where bars were thrown!
A rap video of OGs Proverb and Stogie T battling it out has resurfaced online, sparking a new debate on who spits better verses between the two.
Proverb, real name Tebogo Thekisho, has taken a hiatus from being a rapper and what better way to take him down memory lane than to show his mad lyrical skills when he used to do it.
Meanwhile Stogie T, real name Tumi Molekane, is still at it. He has been trending for the past week for his brawl with Nota. He has a new single out which is rumoured to be addressing the matter.
The old video was originally recorded in 2017 at Kaya FM and shows the two rapping over a backing beat that keeps transitioning, by DJ Kenzhero.
Now what happens at rap battles is that one emcee raps and the other picks up on the word the other opponent has ended on.
This immediately started a weighing contest. Here is a snapshot of some of the reactions.

Stogie T can't be judged based on this, he was about to perform clearly! and didn't anticipate what Pro did. You just have to be in that zone to freestyle contrary to that you'll just mumble words Pro was in that zone doesn't make him better 1
Seeing Stogie T trending plus that video of him freestyling with Proverb reminds me that no Mzansi track can touch "Heavy 8" by Zubz lyrically... Well, maybe "Eight" by @slikouron can. Those two songs are in their own universe lyrically. A few tracks have come close but no cigar.— Dito the Dream$eller🇿🇦 (@DitoDreamseller) October 13, 2021
The tit-for-tat is still trending, with Stogie T's followers pulling receipts as far as his appearance at one of the biggest hip-hop instalments, Sway.
