MegaRan AKA Random is best known for his jump into the role of Mega Man and helping to launch Nerdcore as a genre alongside artists like MC Frontalot. When the album Black Materia came out, it shocked the video game world and blew up the world touring indie artist’s fan-base with Final Fantasy 7 fanatics who couldn’t get enough of Ran’s conversion of what was once a classic masterpiece video game saga into the feeling of that same story taking place in real life. Through voicing each character’s deepest unspoken emotions and embracing that exposure of FF7’s inner conflicts / spiritual themes, Ran proved that video games and hip hop belong together. If you haven’t heard it yet, take a listen below now:
Now the artist known as Random is offering the chance for your favorite game to see that same metamorphosis. One backer of the Mega Lo Mania Director’s Cut DVD Kickstarter has already purchased it, and I can’t wait to see which game they suggest for Random to bring to life.
An EP of 4-5 tracks will be created with executive producer credits given to the backer as well as copyright license ownership and the decision on blessing the project for mass release or keeping it for yourself (an unprecedented value proposition in music that you’ll likely never see again) for just $900 which also nets the backer Mega Lo Mania Director’s Cut, Random’s 2015 album, (digital downloads of both and physical copies), a shout out on Twitter (Random has tens of thousands of fans), and a bunch more (all on top of actually getting to executive produce and own your own MegaRan Video Games Hip Hop project)!!! You can bump it up to FULL ALBUM (9 tracks at least) for $2,000.
Or for just $250 you can get K Murdock and MegaRan to do a song about your favorite game!
(6 slots remaining)
Like I said this is the type of opportunity you won’t see twice. At the time of this writing, there’s only 33 hours left to accept such an awesome offer. Help Random distribute his Documentary to his fans all over the world, and become an Executive Producer of an incredible album at the same time.
