    Final Battle 2.0 (feat. Loose) Final Battle 2.0 (feat. Loose)
    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. Never looked back. Long live RNDMBeats! -Aaron

    MegaLude 9 MegaLude 9
    The Blue Bomber/Teacher/Rapper/Hero returns with a vengeance! This time, he samples Mega Man 9's tunes while reminding us all exactly why we've decided to follow him. I just ADORE "MegaLude 9," which samples Dr. Wily's Stage. Can't get enough!

  3. Mega Ran 10

    00:00/00:00
    Sick!!! Sick!!!
    Once again, Mega Ran returns as the TeacherRapperHero that everyone loves and goes to town rapping bars over MM10's music. I highly recommend the "Sick!!!" track, as well as "Megalude 10" which is a cover of Solar Man's stage. Oh, and get this album online so you can listen to the EPIC remix of "Easy Mode"! Worth every penny!

    00:00/00:00
    Gravity Gravity
    The latest entry in the "Mega Ran Legend," As I like to call it is full of oddities from MM2 to MM and Bass. Not a bad way to show appreciation for a surpassed Kickstarter goal!
  5. RNDM BEATS ALL-STARS (mixed by Kingsize The Vet)
    by Mega Ran
    00:00/00:00
    Well, Well, Well......What do we have here? All of RNDMBEATS best and brightest are on one single mixtape! Gotta say, I'm impressed and reminded of why i am a fan of RNDMBEATS in the first place! Great job to Ran, K-Murdock, LB (Last BeNeVoLeNcE), SkyBlew, and the other peeps that make up this unstoppable force of Nerdcore Hip-Hop!!

    I. LOVE. KIRBY.
    Super Star was THE game that best defined what Kirby was all about. I have the OCR album "Milky Way Wishes" on my computer and HAD TO HAVE this one when I saw it on OCR's Bandcamp page. It's short, but sweet. DaMonz absolutely KNOWS how to capture the Kirby Spirit!

    This album is one way to dance until you die! I've never played the game, but I heard so much about the music of this game. If you've played it before, awesome. If you haven't but are a fan of remixing and EDM, then by all means, listen to this album!

    New Day Raps *The New Day* New Day Raps *The New Day*
    Never been a fan of wrestling, but that's not a problem for me. Mega Ran and WWE go together like Macho Man and Hulk Hogan back in the good ol' days. So many WWE greats are rep'd here, from "The Madness" to Mr. McMahon. CAN. YOU. SMEEEELLLLLL....WHAT. THE. RAN. IS. COOKIN'.
    Ok, maybe that was from the wrong era, but it fits! Over and out!

    What A Rush! (feat. R8ED R) What A Rush! (feat. R8ED R)
    Just when you thought it couldn't be topped, Mega Ran and his tag partner Lynx Kinetic team up to return to the ring. More wrestling greats are rep'd here from Goldberg to The NWO (New World Order) and everyone in-between, Mat Mania: The Revenge gets said revenge, and then some from me....Ok that got a litlle dark, LOL.

    I'm a fan of OC ReMix, and when I seen this on their OCR page here on Bandcamp, I literally asked myself "Why don't I have this album already?" I quickly changed that.

    Yo.

    Do me a favor, BUY. THIS. ALBUM.

    Even though the tracks are short and sweet jams remixed from each of the character themes of Chrono Trigger, you won't be disappointed. And if you're a fan of Chrono Trigger like these talented artists of both RandomBeats and the NPCC (Nerdy People of Color Collective) are, then there's something here for you. If you don't, well that's okay too.

    In terms of tracks, The most poignant one is EyeQ's track "I remember it all," which is not just about him portraying Lavos, but also about how time is a valuable thing, and should not be wasted. After all, the only thing that evil needs to triumph is for good forces to do nothing. The most fire track is from Kadesh Flow with the rap "Focus management". He definitely JUKES it portraying Magus.
    Also, gotta love BeNeVoLeNcE's track, portraying Magus and his younger self, barely recognized his voice there.

    overall,a very solid release from K-Murdock, 2 years in the making.

    Also, his HM1 album isn't bad either. give that a listen whenever you get the chance.

    Over and out.

    Shoutout to my friend 1-UP! I gotten this album when I ordered his N3S comic book. Needless to say that I wasn't disappointed with his repertoire of subjects to rap about from the '80s and '90s and '00s. Rap on, Creative Mind Frame! Rap. On.

    Gotta love these two enhanced editions of these two songs from Get Equipped. I can only hope that The Megas would do a "Get Enhanced" album, these are awesome.

    Tales Of The Elements Tales Of The Elements
    Very nice concept Album! A nice collaboration between Benevolence, Mega Ran, K-Murdock and Kharisma! Hip Hop and JRPG's (especially those made in the '90s) collide in one neat little package. The game is well crafted too, try it out if you get the chance!

    Day 1 purchase. So it was true all along! The mysterious doppelganger outfit known as The Belmonts have surfaced. What could this mean for The Megas? Only time will tell.

    A positive message about Pokemon GO. If only the haters would understand this one concept. Awesome verses, and even Awesome-er sax!
    Now, if only I could get a better tablet to play GO....Heheh :)

    World 2-3 - Shining Force (O_Super, Alpha Riff and W!SE) World 2-3 - Shining Force (O_Super, Alpha Riff and W!SE)
    Proof that Nerdcore is alive and well, despite what some people think. Nice sampling from that one time that the N64, PS1 and Sega Saturn all duked it out for our entertainment.
    However, something is bothering me just a bit.....WHERE DID ALL THE LYRICS GO? Either they're not all there, or they're not there. a bit disappointing, because I LOVE all these Nerdcore rhymes and ciphers.

    Disappointments aside, awesome album by 1-up and his friends!

    A triumphant return for 1Up and his band of heroes! although not as action packed as the first, this holds up awesomely. If you think this is awesome too, then give a listen to NES Chapter 3: Dreamcast!
  27. Nerdcore Emulation Station 3
    by Creative Mind Frame

    9b. Sonic Adventure 2 (Ft Lex Lingo, Tekforce & JC of the Broken Pixels) 9b. Sonic Adventure 2 (Ft Lex Lingo, Tekforce & JC of the Broken Pixels)
    Here we are, after a romp thru the worlds of the PS1, Sega Saturn, N64 and the Gamecube galaxies we have reached the end of this awesome trilogy.

    Nerdcore Emulation Staion 3 (or "N3S") Delivers such an ending with some sick dreamcast samples, from Sonic Adventure to Shenmue and everything in between. An awesome ending to an awesome series! Plus, such a stellar cast of Nerdcore's finest!

    Do yourself a favor and get this if you haven't already! Also if you can get the comic book companion to this, it will help you understand the story a little more.

    Nerdcore in a nutshell. A worthy addition to any lover of the genre's collection!
  29. Killer Instinct Season 3 (feat. Dan Bull)
    by Mega Ran
    00:00/00:00
    Ran and Dan go at this jam HARD. A shout out to Killer Instinct as a whole (contrary to the title being season 3) Sick job, guys! C-C-COMBO BREAKER!
  30. Forever Famicom DLC 2
    by Mega Ran & K-Murdock (Bits & Rhymes)
    00:00/00:00
    Without A Trace *Super Metroid* Without A Trace *Super Metroid*
    What do you get when you take several well-known games, some sick rhymes and ciphers, and sampling said well-known games? you get this masterpiece of an album. Ran and K deliver, paying tribute to the one system in the world that became synonymous with gaming. Although I love the third album a little more than this one, Forever Famicom DLC 2 has a special place in my heart.

    Oh, and that guy that was rapping on the Wilyn' Out track? He is Dale Chase. You may know him from Ran's Final Fantasy VII album, Black Materia.
  31. Forever Famicom DLC 3
    by Mega Ran & K-Murdock (Bits & Rhymes)
    00:00/00:00
    Alive *Shadowgate* Alive *Shadowgate*
    Another fine album, another fine collection of games being sampled. From the sweeping loop of the tutorial stage of Yoshi's Island, to the opening of Bubble Bobble (and is that Led Zeppelin's When the levee breaks drum sample I hear?), to the somewhat haunting chopped and looped sample of Shadowgate, and last but not least the subtle sampling of Batman's first level, this is the most pleasing of the Forever Famicom trilogy.

    Oh, and that MONSTER track is SICK. Good work to Ran, K and Mark Pheonix!
    PS I feel you guys' pain on Ninja Gaiden! it IS a hard game, but oh-so-satisfying when you beat it!

    Peace!
