You may remember that one of the most deeply profound albums from MegaRan released last June called TRAP (Television & Radio Are Poison) and was set to what we know in Hip Hop as “Trap Beats” which are heavy on the bass and whose producers have a certain affinity for rapid hi-hats. This is the melding of modern production styles with a focus on lyricism that contains a real message and interesting real life topics that listeners can relate to. This is Hip Hop about Life.
TRAP 2 will be available to purchase only on tour, so if you’re one of his die-hard fans this is a great time to start planning which show you are going to come out and see. MegaRan currently has shows lined up in Philly, Brooklyn, and even our own RGN hometown area Boston. But it doesn’t end there. Full tour details are available below and you can always keep up with MegaRan here or on his blog if you are needing to get this CD into your ears and just haven’t found which show to go to yet.
To make it up to those of you who felt this was a bit tough, pre-ordering tickets and sending proof directly to the artist will gain you a sample of this album. For a limited time if you type in the code SAFETRAVELS on MegaRan’s Music Store then you’ll get 25% Off Any Album. Since this money goes to supporting touring needs like food and beverage for the artist, as well as gas money to make it to each performance, a free bonus sticker is included of Barret Wallace the MegaRan version from Black Materia (FF7 Rap). Those MegaRan Snapbacks we showed off will also be exclusive to the tour now, so today is the last day to Order One From Home.

The party doesn’t stop there though. MegaRan is also featured in a freshly updated indie title called Canabalt (Available Now On iOS Devices and Android’s Google Play Store) and K-Murdock and dannyB are part of the production as well. The game plays like a 2D version of Mirror’s Edge and the song you’ll hear is exclusive and tailored for this game, not just a Random selection (get it, see what I did there?).
Peace and don’t forget you can grab a MegaRan Beanie and get a free copy of Language Arts (that’s one of our favorites, very deep stuff with a lot of fun moments).
