about

20 years ago, Del changed the game. Today we give back.

lyrics

Let me tell you about the Proto Culture
If you don't know the culture, here's the whole structure
20 years ahead of the game, we gave props
And we still play the kind of games you can't pick up at Game Stop

From arcades to consoles, you name it i got those
Hop on the sticks and i shut it down pronto
My ensemble, got mad combos
Never been Butt, unless I was playing Garou,
Mark of the Wolves

Hey But I like that game
Had other imports that was twice as strange
Dungeons & Dragons, Capcom's best
Radiant Silver, guns in the treasure chest

Before n64 i was getting a whipping
From sneaking and calling Nintendo hotlines in the kitchen
In tomb raider I crawl through, telling the homies to Fall through
Maniac Mansion but I had to use the walkthrough

The homie put me on to the emulators
Every game in the arcade, already played 'em
All the original rhymes got translated
Now video game studies was mandated

Let me tell you about the Proto Culture
If you don't know the culture, here's the whole structure
20 years ahead of the game, we gave props
And we still play the kind of games you can't pick up at Game Stop

Yo I had to make important life decisions
Will I study something to help me make a living
Or will I continue to spend time progressing
Analyze combos and strategies for Tekken

So damn bad I beat Mario with a dance pad
Ransack, hit high scores you ain't got a chance at
Smash cats, like E.Honda with hundred hand slaps
Del dropped the syllabus, now we in the advanced class

In high school I played this boy
Out the golden Zelda cartridge and Metroid
For Gyromite and Clu Clu Land
Told him next day, "black black no trade backs"
Hee Hee

I still prefer 3rd strike cause of the guard parry
NBA Ballers, crossing over with Marbury
PS2 had some bangers, Okami and San Andreas,
But I still prefer Dreamcast, that was prolly the greatest

Let me tell you about the Proto Culture
If you don't know the culture, here's the whole structure
20 years ahead of the game, we gave props
And we still play the kind of games you can't pick up at Game Stop

Catch me at GDQ, E3 too
We been about this life,
Don’t let em deceive you
20 years later everybody jackin' the style
Every month a new battle royale, slow down

Twitch overrun by --hold it down now
There's games, see 'em loading up in the background
I remember getting bootlegs from my favorite store
Till the feds busted them and I didn't no more

I would pass on Smash, the combos were too meticulous
Movement kinda limited, i couldn't get into it
Imported Million Arthur with my stimulus, but I
Still know the code to Mike Tyson its ridiculous

Right now I'm playing Project Warlock, y'all
and Prototype 2 running up sides of walls
Slicing the vice and cops trying to shoot
Laughing, throwing bums off the roof
Haha

Let me tell you about the Proto Culture
If you don't know the culture, here's the whole structure
20 years ahead of the game, we gave props
And we still play the kind of game you can't pick up at Game Stop
