Tromatic Therapy :: MC Homeless Joins Protextor For Latest Episode Of ‘Rappers Playing Games (RPG)’

I’ve been wondering for a couple of weeks who would be the next guest on Rappers Playing Games (RPG), a piece of Baby Lion programming that has grown on me quickly and deeply.  It was a refreshing surprise to see MC Homeless as the latest guest, because I know how deep his love for various pop culture realms runs.  For his episode, he and Protextor sat down over a game of Toxic Crusaders on the Sega Genesis and discussed a wide variety of topics, including horror-core rap, horror movies from around the world that both find influential, their mutual love for Troma films, collaborations with Fake Four artist Moodie Black, and much more.  Not only is MC Homeless a solid interview, dude handled his business on the gaming front as well.  That Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice shirt is a nice touch as well.  Leave a like, a comment, subscribe, and don’t forget to share this one around!

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.

Boogie Nights :: Protextor And Brother Bear’s ‘Not Tonight’ Video Arrives

In anticipation of the American Neon release, partners in crime Protextor and Brother Bear decided to drop a highly entertaining and visually stimulating music video.  Protextor already has a handful of admirable videos under his belt, and with the slight shift in sound direction this upcoming project is taking, it seems fitting that the video for Not Tonight should take on a heightened sense as well.  Director Zack Scott managed to take the familiar confines of Spiderhouse Ballroom and turn it into a glam-style roller disco ready to be rocked out.  Protextor and Brother Bear ooze charisma, and the cast of characters employed to make up the world of the video are perfectly placed.  This one will stick around with you for a while.  As a bonus, the crew even threw in a quick behind the scenes video!  Check them both out, throw some likes and shares around, and always support local.

Sound Expansion :: Protextor Spreads His Wings On ‘Not Tonight!’

Falling into the trap of expectations will more than often leave you far behind the curve.  Sometimes, even as a blogger and a listener, you think that you know what an artists’ new song will sound like before you’ve hit play for the first time.  Every once in a while, however, expectations are blown out of the water.  It was nice to check out Protextor‘s new single, Not Tonight!, and walk away with that ‘what the hell just happened?’ feeling.  In no way, shape or fun was I prepared for the amount of fun this song was.  Protextor completely owns his Robbie Williams‘esque persona on the majority of the song, while sprinkling a few bars on the back-end.  Brother Bear throws in some assistance on this track as well, and now I have no idea what to expect from the upcoming album American Neon… isn’t that honestly the best way to anticipate an album?
