Hip Hop artist, producer and educator Random is preparing his latest release, the theme project “Mega Ran.” This album will contain samples of music from the Capcom Mega Man video games from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) console, and is the first project of its kind from a Hip Hop artist.

“I just wanted to do something different, so far away from what I had done in the past. Mega Man was my favorite game series ever, and I loved the music. I decided to step into the Mega Man character. It’s pretty funny, silly, and entertaining, but it’s good music. Fans of the videogame series will enjoy it”, the hip hop artist Random says.

2007 marks the 20 year anniversary of the birth of the Mega Man franchise. The first Mega Man game released in December 1987 on the NES, and was praised for its colorful graphics and intuitive gameplay mechanics. Mega Man has quite the following, and Random knows he can’t let the fans down.

“It’s gonna be a wild ride...The music on it is really diverse. Fans of every musical genre will be able to vibe with it...Hip Hop, Rock, Reggae, you name it.” Collaborators on the project include RAHM Nation producer DN3 (The Call, Rapademics), videogame rock band The Megas, nerdrap sensation YTCracker, Problem Child, Samik (G-Unit and Ruff Ryders producer), and many more.

“Mega Ran” will release on June 19th, 2007 and will be a free download at www.randomsblogs.blogspot.com, his Myspace site www.myspace.com/bigran215 . A special limited version of the album in CD form, with bonus tracks and additional artwork will be available for sale at RAHM Nation’s website.

Random, who is also a middle school teacher in Phoenix, released his last album, “The Call,” on RAHM Nation Recordings in 2006 to critical acclaim, selling over 8000 copies and being named one of the best of the year by several sources. It was followed up by “The Call: The ReMixTape,” featuring remixes and new tracks. More info can be found at www.rahmnation.org
