Some call him a nerdcore emcee. Others call him a dynamic live performer. Others simply call him dope. The truth is, Mega Ran is all three of these things. I can attest to this, having seen him live, and having enjoyed his work for quite some time.
Mega Ran's latest has a title that boasts a lofty goal, claiming to be "Your Favorite Song." He croons the chorus, singing, "I'm on a mission to make this song your favorite song," and spits verses that describe exactly what makes a song someone's favorite. As he does this Mega Ran succeeds in achieving his goal, as he's crafted something that is undeniably enjoyable.
Oh, and yes, that's a Famicom video game system he's working with. Told ya he was nerdcore!
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
