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!

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!

Let’s Play :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Stops By Baby Lion’s ‘Rappers Playing Games (RPG)’

From the moment I saw the Feral the Earthworm Earthworm Jim episode of the Baby Lion-produced, Adam Protextor-hosted series Rappers Playing Games (RPG), I knew I had to get in on that action.  I immediately hit up Protextor, a fellow nerd with deep appreciation for many aspects of pop culture, and pitched an episode where he and myself chop it up over a session of one of my favorite NES games, Rolling Thunder.  The ‘cool’ thing about vintage games, however, is that they sometimes fail to work, which put the most minimal of monkeywrenches in the plans.  After a quick scouring of Protextor‘s respectable game collection, however, I locked into another old school favorite of mine : the Sega Genesis port of the arcade monster from the late 1980s known as Stryder.  We checked it, and everything ran perfectly, so we sat down and had a deeply moving and inspiring conversation about art, creativity, inspirational sources, expression and much more.  I am honored to have been a part of Baby Lion‘s official Season One lineup, and I look forward to more of the great content they’ve been putting out.  Subscribe to Baby Lion on YouTube to stay in the loop, and be sure to give our video a like, comment and share if you feel inclined to do so.

Baby Lion has hit the ground running with their season one lineup of programming.  After a successful day one with Slumber Party ClubAdam Protextor dropped a banger of a follow-up with the new episode of Rappers Playing Games (RPG) (presented in partnership with Game Over Videogames).  The episode features special guest Chucky BLK, a formidable poet and MC on the Austin scene, and a video game aficionado in his own right.  The two match skills in several rounds of Tekken 3 while dropping knowledge on poetry, finding confidence in the hip-hop realm, topics covered in songwriting, identity and much more.  The conversation is enlightening, entertaining and educational, and most certainly worth your time, shares, likes and comments.

Making Moves :: Baby Lion’s Big Rollout

Over the course of the last year, the Baby Lion Studios collective of Adam Protextor and Stephanie Thoreson has been busy creating proof of concept episodes and testing out their production skills.  This, combined with their love of all things nostalgic, has led them (and us) to Friday, September 21 : the official premier of Season 1 for the Baby Lion YouTube channel.  The season will consist of multiple episodes for the three shows they currently have : Slumber Party ClubRappers Playing Games (RPG), and My Biggest Weirdest Fear.  In celebration of their achievement (and as a testament to that love of nostalgia previously mentioned), they released a brief clip from episode 3 of Slumber Party Club.  The clip features Stephanie and Jonah Yohana doing their rendition of a classic jam by The Beets from the NickToon original Doug :

I’m definitely looking forward to what Baby Lion has in store, and that’s not just because your’s truly is in a future episode of Rappers Playing Games (RPG).  This will most certainly be a fun ride, so do yourself a favor by following the channel, ringing that notification bell, and maybe even tossing them a like on Facebook so you can stay informed.

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.
