Cap City has been renowned for birthing some of the best lyricists and storytellers in South African hip
hop. Born in Mthatha, raised in the USA, and now based in Pretoria the rapper and producer, Herb Vila
stays most true to that PTA promise. His artfully tactile rhyme schemes stretch equally well across boom bap beats, alternative hip hop and in his collaborations with acts such as LuBoy, Boy Wonder and Tokyo Bay. And with his signature orchestral beats, he has produced for the likes of Blaklez and most recently, Richard Anonymous. Herb Vila’s recipe of melodious flow, “gotcha” wit and touch of social commentary at just the right moments hit the spot every time.
