Aaron "ProtoBusterSwrd" Rodriguez I first heard of Mega Ran/Random in 2010, via Nintendo Power. At first I thought nothing of Ran, I wasn't in the loop about Nerdcore. Fast-forward a few years later, when I fully understood the internet and such, I became a fan instantly! Favorite track: Final Battle 2.0 (feat. Loose).

Daniel Lair Mega Ran brings it home with some awesome Mega Man remixes with all the rap up in thar.
I really enjoyed the remixed Megas song with them playing the part of Metalman and Mega Ran being Mega! It's awesome. >:O Favorite track: Boss Battle: Metalman (feat. The Megas).

Paul Bunyan You say it's the 25th anniversary of The iconic Blue Bomber? Well, let's celebrate by playing Mega Ran's 5 year tribute to one of video gaming's superstars. Wily is the ingenious track built with the dopest level music Dr. Wily Skull fortress stage 1 from Megaman 2. The lyrics say it all, how could you not like this? Favorite track: Wily.

Wily 03:35
One of the smartest in the world, Amazing advances within the field of ro-botics Money is no object, But he never felt the need to make a profit with projects Had a best friend, doctor light They couldve changed the world If they had stayed together friendly competition turned to bitter rivalry and one day it changed forever Wily felt he had done enough But no matter how good he was he was always Runner up Got Sick of second place Felt like it was wilys turn to take a crack at comin up The school held a contest, To show off technology and chart our progress, Wily and Light collaborated But Dr Light got all the accolades wild press and I guess Wily had enough of that, started actin up, so he packed his stuff, And though his act was tough, we weren't buying it, this is how he became a mad scientist Might win some but he just lost 1 Light kept building, awards got won A table for 1, it's just not fun, So he built a robot, to call his son Rock, named for his love for music, Lab assistant who fetched his tool kits Teenage boy, A little clumsy clueless, but always amusing, that's the blueprint Didnt want Rock to be alone So he made a sister bot, named Roll, Life was grand but little did they know That wily was coming back for everything he was owed CHORUS I was beat I was played I was lied to Unappreciated for all the good i do They told me chill and I tried to Now it's all about survival, Crushing my rivals, I'm takin over, nothin can stop me, It's doc wily, do not try me, It's doc wily ha, do not try me All was well in the city of robots, Peace and love no shots no cops Till guess who came back to the block When danger comes, it's likely that it won't knock Broke in the lab like a repo man, Left all the robots reprogrammed Cut man iceman elecman guts, Fireman But rock and roll, keep those man, Stack mad chips like Doritos man, Built a huge fortress unleashed those and, Used lights Robots to wreck the town, And if you wanna stop em you gonna bow down Now, Our worst fears came to life and Worse everyone is blaming light, doc only has one robot left, rock, and he ain't even trained to fight On world domination he's hellbent So he gives him a blue suit and helmet Tells rock don't kill if you can help it, Can't believe his old friends so selfish, Mass destruction, is his only objective If only he had known he's respected, Maybe he wouldn't act so reckless I guess it's all a matter of perspective But we can't let him win this fight, Time to get equipped, bots get sliced Rock has wily in his sights But cant bring himself to End his life So they lock the doc in a cage Where they think he'll spend the rest of his days, But I heard the other day he escaped, And i bet hes right back to his evil ways CHORUS I was beat I was played I was lied to Unappreciated for all the good i do They told me chill and I tried to Now it's all about survival, Crushing my rivals, I'm takin over, nothin can stop me, It's doc wily, do not try me, It's doc wily ha, do not try me

5 years ago some friends of mine got together and we put mega man to rhymes had the rap world stuck like a pantomime Capcom hit me up, told me they were fans of mine next thing you know im givin daps to the cats who, made the games I played daily insane to brain to think that they really contained my claim to fame its plain silly 30 year old rap dudes with tattoos shedding they backpack roots to clap tools claiming they rap that truth and thats cool paid all my rap dues, yet i attract fools who ass-ume Random's dead apparently you werent hearing what Random said All i did was pay attention to the fans instead of being scared of what was inside of Random's head and all of us who make art, wanna stand apart and see success while staying true to your heart can't get set or go till you get on your mark some times to go forward ya gotta restart sat on the stoop with a couple of bros used to beg the homies to come to the shows had to make a change--and it wasnt my flows but the secret to success was right under my nose CHORUS been around the world and one thing i learned if ya gonna do it, do it on your terms you live you learn, take your turn who coulda believed it i bomb atomically, gotta be a prophecy that i could be making a career as a hot MC probably, critics try knocking me possibly, one day i'll see a line way around the block for me cats who dont rock wit me, say i made a mockery and i should be on the sidelines like kevin loughery cops dream of lockin me but im as clean as i can be i was in the drivers seat but still aint have the drive in me i would be, working 9-5 for the family doing what i loved on the side to keep my sanity most cats are cool but a few not friendly make me wanna bomb first like 2pac's in me but i chill and fall back like daylight savings write some more raps hoping they might save me till 5 years ago i got a strange idea told DN3 he said "they might feel ya" its megamans 2oth anniversary what would fit perfectly? a beat and a verse from me Hit atomic fire and i got to shopping then fired up Reason and i got to choppin made a couple records that paved the way still perform those joints on stage today How mega ran was born, it isnt that clever i like games and rhymes, i put em together, haha been around the world and one thing i learned if ya gonna do it, do it on your terms you live you learn, take your turn who coulda believed it
