Real Talk :: N∆TE Visits ‘Rappers Playing Games (RPG)’

Way before Rappers Playing Games (RPG) and Baby Lion were a thing, Protexter was paying dues weekly at Spider House Ballroom with Austin Mic Exchange.  It took more than Protextor, however, to make that happen, and one of the key cogs in the machine was N∆TE, the self-proclaimed Casey Jones of the rap game, Austin or otherwise.  It makes it doubly fitting, then, that he would stop by to discuss his upcoming release The Ballad of Casey Jones over a session of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II : The Arcade Game.  Check it out, because you already know what you’re getting when Baby Lion is behind the content.
