Random-TeacherRapperHero Vol.2: The 2 Week Notice
" Random, aka Mega Ran is ready to claim the title of hardest working man in hip-hop after releasing his new mixtape "TeacherRapperHero Vol 2: The 2 Week Notice" today.
Ran was known as everyone's favorite teacher-slash-rapper, but he quit the teaching profession this month, citing a need to "spread his wings."
Career suicide? Maybe. But Ran is determined to go down swinging.
Fresh off the runaway success, "Black Materia," which was based on the hit video game Final Fantasy VII, Ran returns to his roots as a conscious emcee on this one, speaking on the flaws of the education and justice systems, but maintains the fun and the video game references that have made him successful.
Guests include Philly legends Reef the Lost Cauze and Icon the Mic King, the AZ supergroup Writer's Guild (Roknowledge, RoQy TyRaiD, Mr. Miranda and Pennywise--rapping over Metroid nonetheless),int80 of Dual Core, and even award winning composerBear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica and more) and is mixed by DN3, who also produces and rhymes on the project. "
I've listened to 3 songs so far and I definitely think this is worth a listen for ya'll. You know we gotta support our emcees living in the Southwest. Especially, when they are crazy talented. Shout out to Random for making hip hop a full time commitment. He took the plunge (like Dee-1). Wishing you lots of success brother!
