For Small Fee, MegaRan Will Make A Hip Hop EP / Album About Your Favorite Game

MegaRan FF7

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.

MegaRan The Philly Way

WOW! We have surpassed the goal in under a week! Thank you so much! I’ve set up TWO stretch goals and even dropped some new music to celebrate. read on for that.

So here’s the deal: I’d like to get vinyl going for the new album next year, and so with a stretch goal of $8000, we can do that.

THANK YOU for $7000 on Kickstarter!!

As anyone who’s lived in Philly long enough knows, life as a fan of Philadelphia sports teams is full of ups and downs, and mostly downs. With the 76ers tanking, the Phillies and Flyers going nowhere for a while, and recent key injuries to a few Eagles, despite a great start, this season may shape up to be similar to most.

Philly born former teacher Raheem Jarbo, who records hip-hop under the name Mega Ran, perhaps best known for his “Jeremy Lin Rap” that hit scored viral success plus ESPN, USA Today coverage in 2012, is back with a new track that’s less celebratory, but just as heartfelt.

With references to The Curse of Billy Penn, Allen Iverson’s famous “Practice” rant, the demolition of Veterans Stadium and the 2008 Phillies World Series team, and a backing beat comprised of Bill Conti’s famous “Gonna Fly Now,” this rap song is sure to make the average Philly sports fan feel good, or maybe want to fight.

I ALSO have plans to release a new MEGAMAN album on Christmas Day for you guys, if and only if we hit $9000!
