Dropping Science :: Protextor And MoneyNetwork Talk Over ‘Aladdin’ On ‘Rappers Playing Games (RPG)’

Baby Lion is doing it so well that they get to bookend the weekend!  Protextor has decided to hit us with back to back episodes of Rappers Playing Games (RPG) within a week, and the latest episode features special guest MoneyNetwork and the Sega Genesis classic Aladdin.  The pair play the surprisingly difficult game and talk about diversification of creative ventures, the information age, making blogs, objective knowledge and much more in one of the most interesting and vivid conversations to take place on the show to date.  This series is catching steam, and with as many talented artists as there are in the Austin area (many of whom I can almost guarantee are gamers), I imagine we will have plenty of episodes to look forward to.  Give this one a like, leave a comment, and share it around so others can do the same!

Funny Games :: Baby Lion Presents ‘Rappers Playing Games’

The recent emergence of the Austin-based Baby Lion production company has been the catalyst for a handful of new programs and outlets for creative types looking to diversify their content output.  One of the collective members, rapper/actor/filmmaker Protextor, found a way to merge a few of his loves into the show Rappers Playing GamesWith the help of Game Over Videogames and Mopac Media, and a different guest from the deep pool of Austin-based hip-hop talent for each episode, Protextor sits down for a game and some casual talk.  For episode one, Feral the Earthworm stopped by for a round of Earthworm Jim on the Sega Genesis.  The inaugural episode serves mostly as a proof of concept, but according to Protextor and Baby Lion, big ideas and plans are on the way for the series, so definitely stay tuned.
