Mega Ran returns with “RNDM”
“When keeping it real goes right” is not a statement that you often hear but I believe that is what Mega Ran just did. For those of you asking who is Mega Ran? My question to you is where have you been? Brief description he is a Philadelphia born and raised to Arizona transplant, former Teacher turned Rapper, sponsored by Capcom and making his rise to become one of if not the best in the Nerdcore Hip Hop scene. Mega Ran who takes his name from video game character Mega Man also went by a former alias Random and that’s where this new album “RNDM” gets interesting. This is a album opening up bearing his self on wax. Looking at a reflection in the mirror of what once was and what is. He makes that clear on standout track “The Meeting” featuring Edy Blu. Over the dope production provided by Murdock the emcee states “You don’t understand the pressure and the demand it’s easy as Random it’s hard as Mega Ran” and “I promise to make sure they see a piece of you cause your the inspiration in every single piece I do”. That track is a back and forth conversation between both alter egos. what I felt like he did great on this project was even though he made the choice to leave the Random moniker behind for his career of spitting video game inspired rhymes over chip tune beats as Mega Ran. On this project he showed his fans he is more than that and let us inside the mind of Raheem Jarbo. The kid who growing up wanted to be a dentist (check “Alternate Endings feat Open Mike Eagle). The former teacher scared by the Educational System (check “Revisions” feat Elle Winston). Or touching on Religion (check “Believe”). He showed us all sides of him. The Teacher, Rapper, Hero with Anxiety (check “Introvert Bars”). Now that’s RNDM!
I LOVED this album on a scale of Love Like Indifferent Dislike Hate
