Make sure you check out my new podcast, at least once a month (probably more), all about my impressions on WWE’s events and story lines. Tune in and subscribe here:
Well this quite significant! 4 weeks after its release, my new album ?#?RNDM? is standing at #1 on the college radio hip hop charts! Wow. So when people tell you that today’s music fan has a short attention span, and won’t listen after a month, show them this. It’s extremely rare in this climate that a record can maintain popularity for any sustained amount of time, particularly an indie release that isn’t shoved down your throat 10x a day, which makes me so proud of what we’ve accomplished. To see ?#?RandomBeats?, a company I started when I made beats on a Playstation, on a chart next to heavy hitters, this almost makes me want to cry. You guys man. Much love to every fan, every radio DJ, every station and every backer!
Haven’t heard it yet? See what the fuss is about.
WOW. What a first week!
So the first week’s tally for RNDM is as follows:
#2 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Mountain Chart
#26 on Nielsen/Soundscan’s New Artist Chart
#40 on Nielsen/Soundscan’s Hip Hop Chart
THANK YOU SO MUCH! We made music in the basement, now we’re right next to some of my musical heroes…All because of you guys and your support.
If you haven’t gotten it yet, there’s still time:
#RNDM for life!
The long-awaited album is HERE!
DOWNLOAD FOR FREE RIGHT NOW!
During 2015’s “Emerald Knights Tour,” Mega Ran and Felix, The Bag of Tricks Cat ventured from Phoenix, AZ to the UK to perform for crowds in London, Birmingham, and even Dublin.
In downtime, between rocking stages and devouring English Breakfasts, the Cat and the Teacher/Rapper/Hero managed to record an 8-Track EP, dubbed “Emerald Knights: The Album.”
Largely produced by Toronto phenom Fresh Kils, the EP explores personal growth, facing fears, and of course, the Beatles.
The free EP serves a perfect appetizer for Mega Ran’s full-length album “RNDM,” which releases one month later. Features include RandomBeats artist SkyBlew who appears on the 8-Bit jam “Dragon Spirit,” and UK Chap-Hop legend Professor Elemental, who delivers a verse and holds down hosting duties on the album.
“Emerald Knights: The Album” releases in August and will be a free download at megaran.com and bagoftrickscat.com.
