LMH Mixtape #123: Role-Playing Games 2 (Part 1)

One of the best things about revisiting these mixtapes is rediscovering tracks you'd somehow forgotten about, and for some reason this first half of the RPGs-part-two two-parter became a huge blindspot in KeyGlyph's memory.  Now that her hindsight prescription has been readjusted to 20/20, she can't stop rocking out to some of these jams... and as soon as you hit play, the same will go for you!
