What Is MegaRan’s Big Secret? 3 Days Left On Kickstarter Stretch Goal Or We’ll Never Know

MegaRan Mega Man blowing up in your face with an incredibly successful and fan-loving Kickstarter that has seen everything from the sale of MegaRan’s own Famicom to the reveal of crazy tracks like The Philadelphia Way (Click Here) to hear that and listen to a newer one below to even MegaRan selling the tie off his neck – all in the noble and global pursuit of getting The Mega Ran Documentary – Mega Lo Mania: The Director’s Cut published on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, Redbox, Film Festivals, and likely anywhere else MegaRan and his team of international PR ninjas can get their foot into a door. This is the type of moment that fans live for, to see an artist who was once completely underground having their story told in front of the world. MegaRan is responsible for some of the best pairings of Video Games and Hip Hop ever created, and even hosts a panel on Video Games And Hip Hop in our home town Boston, MA every PAX East. I was originally going to make this post about the next Mega Man album that’s hitting, the excitement of which I think is going to rise greatly as the wrap up of the year approaches and fans have time to catch up with all of the great flood of excellent Nerdcore news this holiday season.

But now I just need to know…

What is MegaRan’s Big SECRET???

We have only 3 days left to find out. I can see the money adding up every second from people who might be fans of Black Materia: Final Fantasy VII Hip Hop Album, Forever Famicom, Blur Bomber, MegaRan and his Solo Missions like MegaRan 9, TeacherRapperHero Series, Language Arts Vol. 1, 2, 3, The Call: 8 Bit Anniversary Edition and the dual mind albums like Mirandom – Memorandum,

All backers names are on the back of the Nintendo NES cartridge album, many backers are getting MegaRan’s 2015 album in Vinyl, Audio CD, digital MP3, and more. It’s time for everyone to pull out the stops on making sure every MegaRan fan at least knows about this and has the option to get some of these crazy goodies – because at this point Mega Ran is raising up Stretch Goals upon Stretch Goals including GETTING A TATTOO, dropping A NEW MEGA MAN ALBUM AND A 2015 ALBUM and more. But at $20,000 a “Secret Project” that Random House is teasing will be unlocked. We have no idea what this project is all about, but MegaRan has been playing an awful lot of awesome retro games lately, working with a lot of Nerdcore and Hip Hop Artists, and it could literally be anything. We’ve come this far, So back now! 3 Days Left!

MegaRan + K Murdock Announce The Opposite Of War Tour Hitting Down South August

Random AKA MegaRan is a hip hop artist and real gamer responsible for such hits as Forever Famicom (the gamer’s soundtrack to life as produced by K Murdock), Black Materia (the world’s most personal and introspective Final Fantasy 7 rap ever), and many more. As an artist constantly on the road these days, you might have seen him live at your favorite game industry event like PAX, SXSW, or even E3.

Fresh on the heels of the Odds N Ends Tour and the announcement of an upcoming September tour of the UK with Mr. Miranda, MegaRan has now announced The Opposite Of War Tour which will take place down south in the good ol’ US of A featuring K Murdock, Doug Funnie, and Tribe One. Not only that, TRAP 2 is still available to download until the end of the week for those true fans who would like to help fund that UK tour I just mentioned. This album was originally sold only on tour, and who knows when you’ll get another chance to buy it again after this.

The reason we talk so much about MegaRan is one of the hardest working Nerdcore artists out there and provides the music business with something more soulful than just empty rhymes about how Mario is cool or it was tough being a nerd growing up. Random (AKA MegaRan) is working on a number of projects that are aimed to drop this year and really provoke us to think about the world from a big picture viewpoint. Beyond that, his music is very well produced and rhymes are always on point. Take a look at the tour dates in the image at the top of this article and view some more detailed links to some of those Opposite Of War shows below.
