Time for Battle.
Mega Ran and Storyville return to their battle-rap roots (both are former Scribble Jam Battle finalists in 2008) in a trippy high-tech video that includes digital boxing gloves, retinal scans and even a DeLorean.
Directed by Luis Perez and Ben Levy, Ran and story drop punchline after impressive punchline on “Artillery,” over a hypnotic horn-driven soulful loop accented by piano keys, produced by Small Pro.
Their album “Soul Veggies,” which debuted last week at #47 on the Billboard Indie Charts, is available now on iTunes, https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/soul-veggies/id958320017
OR you can preorder it on special purple vinyl (you know, like a beet).

March is festival time, so as usual, I’ll be on the road! In March I’ll be taking my NPC sisteren Sammus on her first tour! That’s right, we’ll be on the road for the “Rappers with Arm Cannons Tour.” We’ll be moving from the Northeast at PAX East (where I’ll be debuting The “Mega Lo Mania Directors Cut” on the big screen) through the Midwest down to Austin, TX to SXSW, where I’ll be playing an all-Soul Veggies set on the Official Nerdcore Showcase.

Sammus and I will be working on some new music to commemorate the tour, so be on the lookout for that.
SOUL VEGGIES RELEASES 2.17 YALL!!
Today I decided to change my name officially to just Mega Ran. It’s too confusing with at least 6 other acts named Random, and some sites don’t allow an aka… so, it’s officially a thing. Working on changing it on every place.
But Don’t get it twisted: Random isn’t dead, he’s just making it easier for people to find him. Look out for more music very soon.
in fact, to get more, join the Fun Club!
Current Patrons now have access to exclusive remixes, at least 4 new tracks from me, new albums from K-Murdock, as well as full downloadable episodes of our radio show “The Manual.” All that for as little as $1 per month.
Ain’t nothin’ changed.
