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!
