about

Random aka Mega Ran Philadelphia

People will remember Ran for his daring leap from teaching into video game remixing which led to a Capcom cosign, but Random's penchant for storytelling has impressed gamers while garnering respect from Hip-Hop's harshest critics. An incredible impromptu "freestyle" MC, Ran's unique combination of fantasy and introspective hip-hop has found its way all over the world. ... more

Track Name: Lookin' Up
BRIDGE
we aint givin up, nah we aint get enough
go on get em up - dont - look - down



v1
im the difference between
all the kids in the scene
im like Pippen on D
nobody gettin through me
people thinkin im rich
cuz im livin the dream
but how quick they forget
aint no trick to it
the truth is im resolute
i do what you never do
better than you'd ever do
so let em through
i say im a changed man,
i got a new game plan
the logo is new, yet still its same clan

CHORUS

Things are lookin up, oh finally,
I thought I'd never see the day when you'd smile at me
We always fought through oh when we try
I'm always wrong but, you're never right
you've never right

when i writin a rhyme
take my life and my times
put em right in the lines
seem's obvious
but when i first started spitten
everything was written
was undoubtedly fiction
like a lotta kids
but eventually,
i decided to be true to me
best decision that i had ever made
now every September the 3rd is like July 4
we up in magazines, we headline tours,
i never coulda dreamt this in 94
got here in 5 years, imagine 5 more
when i made the call i aint wanna rap further
now im sick, parkinsons, aspbergers
my music is therapy
to whoever hearning me
cause part of me still..
wanna wish a disease on whoever
didn't believe
before you pick up and leave
keep a trick up ya sleeve

CHORUS



man i come from a block
where we struggled and fought
slang a couple of rocks
brothas takin no shorts
and the name of the game here's
survival, outlast your rival, its cut throat
gunsmoke
but yo, amongst those inhabitants
you'll also find a couple law school graduates
we aint all savages, its easy to blame the kids
when they aint the reason that thangs is the way it is
naw it isnt perfect, but we make it work
handshakes is cool, but i need paperwork
yo my man got a raise
but he still underpaid
gotta work like a slave
like he aint good enough
but he went in today
put a smile on his face
and made an old lady's day, now that's lookin up
Track Name: Sick!!!
i'm under the influence of
something worse than influenza
got all the symptoms, sore throat achy joints, clammy hands
dry cough, fever, somebody call the ambulance
i'm up all night, tossin like a dryer load
sweatin like im at a club that violated fire code
crypto sporid-e-o-sis
these days im too debilitated to focus
hope this, blows over expeditiously
its attacking me viciously
i got people to save, but nobody can save me
hope it aint scabies or rabies, or maybe
its encephalytus, malaria
whatever it is its Robot city in a state of mass - panic
hysteria - vacate the area,
i did hear that adult chicken pox can bury ya
picture me bedidden just cuz im feelin rotten
thats a quick way for a hero to be forgotten
whoever was plottin, this scam was ingenious
imma need walgreens rite aid and cvs
could it be age related
running, jumping and evading for years, reflexes fadin
shortness of of breath, my chest is
infected, maybe its just this dust or asbestos
(cough)

i need a doctor

i need a doctor

i need a doctor right

cant stop the fight now

i gotta fight now

Hypo-chondriac trying to rap
Wit a heating pad Under my cap
I'm online reading some home remedy book, can't believe a little virus is gettin me shook
Coughing, aching stuffy head fever
Protoman callin me a diva
Till I blew chunks on his suit, that made a believer, out of em, lot of em, infected as we are
Me and roll checked in the ER, doc says
We are, unable to help you
All out the vaccine take a number
Roll gets 99, I get a hundred
So much bad luck it's makin me wonder
I gotta find wily and see what he's up ta
Rush ta the jet, heading to his structure
I pains me say it but I need his help,
Rolls getting worse, I can take care of myself, but that's family





i need a doctor

i need a doctor

i need a doctor right

cant stop the fight now

i gotta fight now

Things turn strange when I visit the doctor
Not only was he not involved, he had a box of the vaccine tucked away in a safe place said he would give it to us,
If we could lay waste
To the robot masters gone wild
Cuz they been wreaking havoc for a while
This whole thing was perplexing cuz just last year he had light on trial
Now I'm supposed to trust you man
He said "I know it's difficult to understand"
But times running out," on everything I cherish i can't let roll perish so I gotta grin and bear it
And I strap on the helmet, call me a doubting thomas but can I believe him cuz he promised
But I do it anyway disgusted
Deep down believin DR Wily can't be trusted
but man....
Track Name: The Day The Robots Took Over
I was sittin on my sofa
Now the weight of the world upon my shoulders
Average men became soldiers
The day the robots took over

Unplug
Before the machines get a hold of you
Unplug
You flip the switch but who's controlling who?
Unplug
You turn it on but who's controlling who
Unplug
You press the buttons but --

Verse 1
My gps froze can't get directions,
I need google or Siri just to answer a question
I change the channel every 10 seconds
Can't function if I lose my Internet connection
Outta my zone, I lost my iPhone
I wouldn't even know the number to my moms home
Even if I have a lousy waiter
Can't get the tip straight without a calculator,
I want my space like timberlake
When I get it I can't get it straight
It's impossible to innovate
Roadblocks on the information interstate
Coud it be another side effect of inner hate
Hungry wolves snatching portions off my dinner plate, sickening,
Even when im in the club,
I get pinged all night by every social site I'm a member of
Seem like I'm not even me any more
Went from social butterfly
To social media whore
And we all seen the pictures and signs from the scriptures,
That say false idols will get ya
But still we slaves to technology,
And I don't see a way out coming, but there's gotta be!
My philosophy is this:
Why waste time, wit set backs
Cuz times the only thing ya can't get back


Unplug
Before the machines get a hold of you

You flip the switch but who's controlling who?

You turn it on but who's controlling who

All the stuff that I used to commit to memory, they threw it outta schools, they just let em be,
They call it useless, cause nobodys gonna ask you what the surface area of Duluth is
We used to learn from mistakes,
Now I can't try cuz I got no time to waste, I heard em say
Why waste time, wit set backs
Cuz times the only thing ya can't get back
used to enjoy our heated arguments
Now a trip to wikipedia ceases all of it
you know where i be at then You know why i cant relax,
Was Told I need To detox, all I did was relapse
I was late to work because of my alarm
While a kid used his ps3 to arm a bomb
I try to say it just what us kids do
Technology's a tool, but a crutch is too

I was sittin on my sofa
Now the weight of the world upon my shoulders
Average men became soldiers
The day the robots took over
Track Name: A Hero's Lament
You ever have an urge that you couldnt fight?
That deep down inside something isn't right
Well I get that Feelin each and everyday
Don't know what to do, don't know what to say,
2x

Ayo bro I feel ya, ya story is familiar
Trying to do right while folks tryna kill ya--
This path ain't easily walked
Though I know what I believe in my heart
I got a mission to complete
Part of that is not envisioning defeat
So feel what I'm spittin on this beat
We go back la-z-boyz,
Since the 80s boys, makin crazy noise
And when you tried to get me I understood, I just wanted you to come to good
Then It all flashed like a photo, put me on lean
sorta somethin like a cholo, ohno, not my brother proto
Till it's time to go doe, yo you still my bro
So I hope that you feel this yo
I need u to fight the urge help ignite the surge
Cuz Itll kill me to kill my bro
Ya know?

CHORUS
You ever have an urge that you couldnt fight?
That deep down inside something isn't right?
Well I get that Feelin each and everyday
Don't know what to do, don't know what to say,
2x

Wilys robots going off I ain't havin it
I was about to go off to battle wit
Rush by my side like always
Had a feeling in my gut that something wasnt kosher all day,
Chalked it up to the shake and steak I ate,
Then all of a sudden Dr wily comes in the place
and he's Asking for help saying his ship was smashed, the robots took his stuff, straight dipped and dashed,
But he said he buildin a cure
To the disease that had brought robot city to his knees.
I wasn't down but The doctor pleads and gets into that familiar position on his knees
I told him get up, and we agreed to help,
But Doc light says I can't do this one myself...
And just then I hear a whistle and see a yellow scarf,
I feel a lump in my throat and heavy heart
Cuz When i see my bro-ther,
I don't know whether to stretch my arms or charge the buster
Roll runs for cover I stand my ground
And he says I'm hear to help, bro, imma hold you down
Not sure if I can trust him but my choices are minimal, shysty individual, or career criminal,
Proto I'm not kidding you
Look at me wrong and I might have to out your circuits on the wall-- just keepin it real, bro

CHORUS 2x

You ever have an urge that you couldnt fight?
That deep down inside something isn't right
Well I get that Feelin each and everyday
Don't know what to do, don't know what to say
Track Name: MegaLude 10 feat. Muthapluckin' B
there are none.
Track Name: Pump It Up! (feat. Adam WarRock)
Verse 1: Random


Me and Warrock keep it moving like the floor’s hot
Don’t quit your day job, you might get a tour slot,
See those dudes, rollin up, we don’t move, man the flow’s crazy, 302′d
Foolish, parker lewis cuz he don’t lose
Skills don’t equal murders or kilos moved
Guess I’m stating the obvious,
(he probably is) since 07 been flooding the net like a tsunami hit
So put ya hand up, turn to a fist
take the other hand clamp it around your wrist
Charge up and blast on a wannabe
Dwight Howard in the post, its foolish to front on me
otaku like pocky and ramune
Never take a day off not even bank holidays
So what u got is a, problem I’m tellin y’all,
the Blue bomber and the man with the yellow scarf

chorus: (Adam)
You got the sickness, we’re bringing the cure
We blast it out of the speakers, until it’s shaken’ the floor
(Ran)
cuz im focused more than ever before
you know we ready for war, we gotta settle the score

verse 2: warrock

Well I’m the protoman, to your megaran
Came to lend a hand,
Adam is ready and willin’, to fight the vilain
Cuz it seems that machines is failing’
So society needs savin’
You feelin’ good, Ran? I feel amazin
And if Wily approaches light, if protoman joins the fight
Then there’s nothing they can’t do, to stop this blight
it’s like Random and WarRock, you loving’ the sound
we make ya throw ya hands up and wave ‘em around
Cuz I’m feeding’ off your energy, battlin’ back the enemies
Knowing I got the tendency to rock this stage
And I’m seeking out the remedy, Megaran in the meantime,
Got the sick skills enough to beat this game…
Yeah, that’s our cause, and we standin’ on the platform
While..listeners ask for..me to rap more..
So like, man, if I’m so amazin, geez
Must be why..Mega Ran got me up on this beat

chorus: (Adam)
You got the sickness, we’re bringing the cure
We blast it out of the speakers, until it’s shaken’ the floor
(Ran)
cuz im focused more than ever before
you know we ready for war, we gotta settle the score

verse 3
WarRock:

Ayo ran – what up Adam – stop the track for a second
I gotta restart my game, back it up for a second
Cuz it feels like I died a million times
Tryin’ to get through this level – it’s like you’re reading my mind
Cuz I struggled to find the combination in lines,
there with the beat – sometimes you know it’s harder to find
So when you called me back to fight right along at your side
Happy to take up the cause, so haters they better hide

Random
Got the elixir to fix ya, The Spine twister
It’s goin down like The Catalina Wine Mixer
we rock steady, they raven (raving) like Scott Levy, I say that u not ready,
I’m from where they chop Chevys
And bounce em like bad checks,
Comic con to MAGfest Mad fresh,
Spittin my rhymes can cure bad breath
(Halitosis?) espi-alla-dopeness
focused, stopping something this explosive
is hopeless.

chorus: (Adam)
You got the sickness, we’re bringing the cure
We blast it out of the speakers, until it’s shaken’ the floor
(Ran)
cuz im focused more than ever before
you know we ready for war, we gotta settle the score

*beat change*
Adam
I’m pulling end to end burners on the walls of your room
So Pump Man’s all distracted with a mop and a broom
“Yo, he’s a neat freak” I see that, Ran, I mean I am…
Down, gutter, and dirty when I’m rocking it, too
So Pump it up! I gotta full life bar,
And wonderful weapons to try to fight, hard, back against this light boss
Wipe off the mess, “cuz we’re back on the scene”
Washin’ him down the drain, it’s so fresh and so clean
Random
It’s time to figure out this sickness and what caused it,
Next in my target, is this leaky faucet,
Pump man, you need to know something I never been a punk man,
now you outta tune like a stumped band
You got my back proto? (yeah that’s a given)
Cool, Lay some fire
While i get into position
equipping the thunder wool so I can light up his life,
I’ma need a tougher challenge, this was ‘hardly a fight’
Track Name: Bassnium
Y'all know how I do it man I leave em mega flustered
Im The only mega man, and you're a mega buster
Sick as roboenza, and think it's time to end ya, incapacitate ya game, and all of it's members,
Gimme the triple blade water shield
Solar blaze and chill spike,
Check all the nuts and bolts screw em on real tight
Don't wait up cuz this might be long one
Cuz I ain't coming back until theyre all done,
It was like a quiz show and mega picked the wrong one,
Blue bomber loves lasagna but now imma make some sauce run,
Toss one after the next with the wheel cutter,
Crab puncher or whatever, trust they will suffer
Whether proto is there or not
I don't care a lot, all I need is to be strongest, head of the flock,
Evil energy capsules got me dashin,
Double jumpin, bustin long as the bass pumpin,
Let me tell you somethin,
No pleasure it's all pain
It's my game you're small change, remember the name it's
BASS!
That my name don't you forget it
Anytime and anywhere I'm always down to set it, let's get it
How low can u go
As low as I need to,
I prove that I'm the strongest,
Fool we don't need you
My name is BASS!
Takin down these junk bots wit one shot: the fun stops
(badder than bad cuz the brother is madder than mad)

Shot caller, I'm mean as a Rottweiler fitted wit shock collars, ready to stop all a-- your play, my forte is guns not swordplay, enemies be warned tou in for a short stay
Its your day, so i just Adjust the levels on em,
I tried to warn em now I gotta sic treble on em
wily built me and broke the mold,
So its no doubt that I'm the strongest And highest up on the totem pole
He's got no control, Give it up for free will
If he was smarter he'd have probably had me killed
So dont think we friends were associates,
I'll deal with you later on when it's appropriate
But for now on roboenza's where my focus is,
This is another sick scheme I just know it is,
One bass buster blast and his whole games through
I won't give him a chance like you always do
You know what they say about he who hesitates in war:
he who hesitates is lost- my name is

BASS!
That my name don't you forget it
Anytime and anywhere I'm always down to set it, let's get it
How low can u go
As low as I need to,
I prove that I'm the strongest,
Fool we don't need you
My name is BASS!
Takin down these junk bots wit one shot: the fun stops
(badder than bad cuz the brother is madder than mad)
Track Name: Now Hiring (Feat. Open Mike Eagle)
Cuz I don't wanna be a a-hole
Too many yes men I need someone that'll say no
I don't have much in terms of payroll
Sometimes I wanna make music and lay low
I don't know what else to say yo

Consider this my announcement, Now hiring,
I need management not street teaming and flyering,
I can tweet my own links thank you kindly,
Don't need someone cosigning and following blindly (I need a manager)
Cause it's getting more tedious
Dealing with the websites and media
I'm in need of a, manager that won't do it for wealth,
Just someone who can do more than I do for myself,
Cuz some days I spend more time promoting and soliciting
Than I do listening to beats it's kinda sickening,
I need someone to filter through my emails, pick out the important ones and summarize the details
Then when I see cats and they ask "did u get it?"
I can say "naw my manager musta hid it"
I like netflix and xbox
But I'm at my PC more than cats when a desk job

(i need a manager)
Cuz I don't wanna be a a-hole
Too many yes men I need someone that'll say no
I don't have much in terms of payroll
Sometimes I wanna make music and lay low
I don't know what else to say yo



Record labels say they don't know how to market me
Need me to stay in one lane so they can target me
But they don't understand it's hard for me
Plugged into games and hip hop like ventricles and arteries
I get requests to call people when theyre sick
How do I respond to that without being a prick?
When someone ask me to pay to play, I wanna cuss em out but instead injust to stay away,
Times like that i wish I had management
Cuz im faced with the bs I can't handle it
Im not the type to give cats the
runaround
Like all these fake dudes claimin that they rep
the Underground
And I can spend my time doing what wanna do
And thats Make dope records for yall to party to
Or if i have a stalker fan and dont know how to handle her,
I can always say, yo, holla at my manager

one time i did a little experiment,
When I was coming up and gainin some experience
I wrote my bio in the 3rd person,
Pretended I wasnt me, but a 3rd person,
A manager, rep, whatever worked
And when cats responded, they were never jerks
Even if they couldnt invite me,
They spoke to management, they spoke politely,
But if I say I represent myself,
My music's dope, book me, I'm gonna need some help
It's like when jobs ask you if you got experience,
But no one hires anyone without experience
So how am I supposed to gain some experience!?
I just rhymed 4 bars with experience.
See, this is how stressed out I am man.. It's affecting my rhyme skills... I really, really, need managment.
Track Name: Mega Man Forever
Never be another man it's mega man forever,

Verse 1

I look at my favorite gaming site and what do I see,
Capcom pulling the plug Megaman legends 3
Now I gotta be honest, I wasn't really sweating it
But something seems strange, and I don't like where it's heading kid
First in line for marvel capcom 3,
Then I found out Mega wasn't DLC,
All good not a problem, I guess no one wouldve stopped em
But it seems hes on a slalom headed straight to the bottom
Maybe I was the only kid who had-a dream,
Of a helmet armcannon, a metal dog and a magnet beam,
Imagine me an overbite, fillin sketch books with prototypes, then it all changed overnight
Got into girls, sat the games down,
Girls werent interested it came back around,
Mega Man dropped, i copped every iteration, nes , genesis super to Playstation
So universe had me gassed when I watched the demo,
Then Inafune left, and then we got the memo,
Ads had us wanting more, interviews, something raw, but unfortunately it's now on the cuttin floor,

CHORUS
I'll never forget what you gave to me,
Keep walking the path that you paved for me
I need everyone out there to seethere
Never be another like you
I'll never forget what you gave to me,
Keep walking the path that you paved for me
I need everyone out there to seethere
Never be another, man it's Mega Man Forever, What?

Look in my mailbox and what do I see
Nintendo power, issue number 3
And yup, Mega man 2 is the cover story
Gotta convince my momma to buy it for me
Easy, all I gotta do is keep my room tidy
Do my homework, floss and brush nightly,
Long as I wasn't-- breaking the rules
I always got the newest toys but couldn't take em to school
And out the blue, when we took a trip to Clover
Saw Mega man was only 20 bucks, it was over
Wasn't even sure the game was official, cuz on the cover was lame old dude with a pistol,
Took it home and I loved it,
Didn't come outside for a week, told my homies I was punished,
I remember - the day I entered dr wilys fortress
I remember- The day I beat the yellow devil with the Pause trick
Fast forward,
Got you tatted on my bicep,
And when I travel the country I see hundreds just like it,
Today's generation might feel you like we did, but I'mma make sure they know, best believe it

Mega Man, known as Rockman (ロックマン Rokkuman) in Japan, is a cybernetic video game character, and the main protagonist of the Mega Man game series developed by Capcom since 1987. The pixel art for the character was created by the designer of the original game and later refined by Keiji Inafune. Since then, he has become one of the company's primary characters and one of the video game industry's most recognizable icons.

Mega man forever.
