Touring The East Coast w/Ceschi, Miranda


Mega Ran, Ceschi and Mr. Miranda will be embarking on a 4 city tour this December in what should be a diverse and dope hip hop tour.

Since being named a “Rapper who will be big” by LA Weekly, Mega Ran has seen his stock rise, dropping a billboard-charting album, two European tours and a year of positive accolades.

Ceschi’s new album “Broken Bone Ballads” is an honest look at the rapper/folk singer/one man band since his prison sentence, and the critically acclaimed project has taken him across the globe.

Rounding out the trio is Mr. Miranda, a Phoenix AZ native who’s smooth vocals and soulful beats can change the mood of any room. Miranda’s new album “Soul In Da Booth” is out now.

#1 On CMJ’s Hip Hop Chart!


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.

Emerald Knights: The ALBUM!



The Story:

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 and
