Mega Ran drops single ‘SUMIMASEN’

Mega Ran drops single ‘SUMIMASEN’

Oh snap! We just announced Mega Ran last week and his single ‘SUMIMASEN’ just dropped today. Listen to it here. After his 8th trip to Japan on tour last year, Ran decided to make the most of the moment and shoot a music video out there with director Ikuo Yamamoto. The song is called “Sumimasen,” which is a word that loosely translates to “Excuse Me,” which is how Mega and guest Alfred Banks politely push their way through the competition. Nice guys can finish first, as shown in this quirky video shot in Shibuya on a rainy night.  “The video was so much fun,” Ran says. “What better way to immortalize everything I love about this place than in a new music video? Ikuo-san perfectly captured the moment…video games, food and good times.” Check out the music video below....
Nerdcore Hip-Hop Rapper Mega Ran joins 80/20!!

Nerdcore Hip-Hop Rapper Mega Ran joins 80/20!!

A new challenger approaches!  We are extremely excited to announce the next member of the 80/20 family, Mega Ran. If you haven’t seen the waves he’s been making you need to check him out.     We’ll be releasing his next single, SUMIMASEN, on February 26th.  Watch Mega Ran explore Japan in the music video that premiered on HipHopDX here.   —About Mega Ran— Random, aka Mega Ran, aka RandomBeats… Teacher, Rapper, Hero. Guinness World Record Holder. When LA Weekly said that Ran’s “fanbase and niche audiences are growing at a rate not seen since Tech N9ne,” they meant it. A former middle school teacher, Mega Ran (formerly Random) blends education, hip-hop and gaming in amazing new ways, penetrating the farthest reaches of the galaxy with his unique rhyme style and electric performances. Ran cut his teeth in the city of Philadelphia as a moonlighting emcee and producer, performing, freestyle rapping, producing and later engineering at a studio. After relocating to Phoenix, competing in the Scribble Jam emcee battle championships and taking an early exit, Ran almost quit before he was even started, when a creative lightning bolt struck, and a fire was lit. Various video game developer co-signs and admiration from the genre’s toughest critics have led to placements in TV, movies, university coursework, and of course, games. Ran’s music and story have been shared on stages across the world, on television (ABC/NBC News, ESPN, Portlandia, Tosh.O, WWE Wrestling) and in leading music, gaming and tech publications, print and online. Today, Mega Ran is no longer a teacher by title, but maintains a rigorous touring and recording schedule, traveling...
