mc chris (Chris Ward) hand-picked our man Mega Ran to join a huge 40+ date US tour this fall with Adam Warrock and MC Lars.
but we need your help!
Don’t know his work? You might.. Chris’ song “Hoodie Ninja” is in the new Honda commercial, which has aired on TV and even at theaters before this summer’s biggest blockbusters. mc also has credits on several Adult Swim cartoons, works tirelessly to fight cystic fibrosis, and is working on his own cartoon after netting over $56,000 on his kickstarter campaign.. no that’s not a typo.
Meet the contestants:
MC Lars, real name Andrew Nielsen, (born October 6, 1982 in Berkeley, California) is an American rapper. He is the self-proclaimed originator of “post-punk laptop rap”. He has recorded for Truck Records in the UK and his Laptop EP is licensed to Sidecho Records in the USA. He was formerly known as MC Lars Horris but changed his pseudonym to MC Lars in 2004 for the sake of simplicity.
RANDOM aka MEGA RAN
People will remember Mega Ran for his daring leap into video game remixing which led to a Capcom cosign, but Random’s penchant for storytelling has impressed retro gamers while garnering respect from Hip-Hop’s harshest critics. He developed the Mega Ran persona after rapping over an album filled with samples from the hit game Mega Man. He’s continued since then, doing albums based on several other games, including 2011′s “Black Materia,” which retells the story of Final Fantasy VII. The album ranked as high as top 20 on Amazon and iTunes this year and has led to coverage in Playstation Magazine, Nintendo Power, Wired and several top publications. Live shows are accented by Ran’s uncanny impromptu “freestyle” ability.
Known as the Internet’s foremost comic book rapper, Adam WarRock has been creating music about his favorite comics, as well as numerous other pop cultural subjects. Mixing an independent hip hop aesthetic with a love and passion for all things nerdy and geeky, he has garnered a following both online and worldwide through his tireless song production and touring. His music has been featured on PRI, NPR, WFMU, as well as sites such as SlashFilm, Newsarama, Time’s Techland Blog, and WIRED.com. He is currently on a national tour with mc chris, MC Lars and Random.
