Prop Anon interviews the Canadian rapper Noah 23 for Prop's Chapel Perilous website. (The interview is listed as Part One, so there is more to come.)
There's a bit where Noah23 explains how he got interested in Robert Anton Wilson: "Robert Anton Wilson entered my world in 1998. Inspired by the 90s Hip Hop conspiracy vibes of the times I was always on the lookout for a cool book. Someone had lent me a copy of the Illuminatus! Trilogy and I went to work devouring the thing. Early on in the first chapter it goes into detail about William Burroughs and the 23 Enigma. Being a fan of the beatniks and Burroughs’ cut up technique this aroused my curiosity. This is where I get my MC name from. Ya see, I just so happened to be wearing a green shirt with a big yellow 23 on it that I had thrifted a few days prior, but not only that! When I checked out the publishing date on the book. It was 23 years back from the time I was reading the thing! (1975)"
