about

THE FIRST 999 THAT PREORDER THE ALBUM WILL GET THE "MIGHTY NO 9" SOUNDTRACK, FREE!!!!

(if this is still written here, then there are still soundtracks to give away.)

They say you can't go forward without going back. So to move to the future, Mega Ran had to go back to the beginning to say thank you, then to say goodbye. Ran's 2015 full length album channels the soul of "The Call," the nostalgia of "Forever Famicom" and blasts into the future with new age production and concepts, while exploring the concept of finding one's true self through deep soul searching and experimentation.

Mega Ran calls this "the album of my life." Hip Hop, pop, electronica and funk/soul meet at the crossroads of introspective, hilarious and heartwarming songs featuring outstanding artists such as Kool Keith, Open Mike Eagle, MURS, Joell Ortiz and more.

Also featured on the album is "Mighty," an empowering track that serves as the ending credits theme on the highly anticipated game "Mighty No. 9."

Track Name: Infinite Lives (feat. D&D Sluggers, beat by Marcus Banks)
We all die. But the goal isn't to live forever, but to create something that will.

CHORUS
Infinite Lives..Infinite Lives
never say never, we're gonna live forever
Infinite Lives...Infinite Lives
never say never we're gonna live forever


I heard you only live once, well ima disagree,
Cause you can live forever and forever doesn't cease,
Live through your creations and the people that you teach
So I Live through my music, eternally through the beats
First email says I'm diggin that verse
Next 4 emails im missing that merch
They say you can't take it with you and so I never intended to, before my last interview
This is the gift I'm sending you

D&D SLUGGERS:
Never gonna die..no we're never gonna die
You can hear my words in this song...it'll play on after I'm gone
Never gonna die..no we're never gonna die
You can hear my words in this song...it'll play on after I'm long gone

VERSE 2
Heard you only live once, that's cool I suppose, but you can live forever through the songs you compose,
Experiences you share, the highs and the lows,
Experimentation with flows cause god knows,
She learned more about life from Pac's posthumous works
Than she ever could've got in a church,
Is that wrong? Living for that song,
Learning from that lyric and steering others from wrong,
We living off love so, never needing a meal,
Full from the enlightenment and the warmth that we feel
It's ill
Overflow of emotion from chillin chasin the girls
To float in over the oceans
And maybe changing the world
First 2 emails like hey that's tight
Next few emails you change my life
So even if I expire and people call it untimely,
All you gotta do is rewind me, cuz I've got

CHORUS
Infinite Lives..Infinite Lives
never say never, we're gonna live forever
Infinite Lives...Infinite Lives
never say never we're gonna live forever

Heard you only live once, Well I beg to differ
Cause you can live forever through the feelings U deliver
From the first raindrop to the rush of a mighty river, I give ya,
The bigger picture the split ya and leave a fissure
An opening full of hoping,
That's smoldering like a cauldron,
Proceeding with caution will never fill up your garden, pardon-
for everybody who doubted and left my memories clouded *I decided instead of complaints I'd
Do something about it
Forever isn't a time it's a place or a state of mind,
No they never just gave me mine, I
I elected to Stay behind
Cuz there's deeds I need done,
Pages I haven't filled
Places I haven't been to, and
Stages I haven't killed
There's lives I haven't touched
words I need to say,
Tell me Who needs forever
When our forever's today
If I die it's right on time
It's meant to be this way
Now Tell me who needs forever , our forever's today, come on

CHORUS
Infinite Lives..Infinite Lives
never say never, we're gonna live forever
Infinite Lives...Infinite Lives
never say never we're gonna live forever

Never gonna die..no we're never gonna die
You can hear my words in this song...it'll play on after I'm gone
Never gonna die..no we're never gonna die
You can hear my words in this song...it'll play on after I'm long gone
Track Name: Your Favorite Song (beat by Tunesmith)
(CHORUS)
I got my game face on,
Usually I don't take this long
But I'm on a mission
To make this song your favorite song

The song you can't turn off
There's no escaping from
I'm on a mission
To make this song your favorite song
(4x)


I could hear it in an apple commercial
The hip stock firm or home loans
Even a sick animal montage
But I been struggling with this for so long
I want something that'll make you wanna reminisce
Repeatable with very little lyrics in it
Something that lovers can kiss in the rain to
In slow mo, with angles that'll capture the human spirit
The soundtrack to the newest startup
the First song you play in your car or truck
The kind that'll keep royalties comin when I'm hard up,
broke falling into hard luck
The kinda track you hear in public restrooms
The track white girls get dressed to
The kinda song that'll make old people tell me
"I don't listen to no other rappers, just you"

CHORUS 4x

I wanna make the 2015 "Happy,"
Be the rap game Carly Rae Jepsen,
Sports center top 10 on ESPN
Saturday Night Live doing impressions
Make Starbucks wanna carry me
Make total strangers wanna marry me
Make Clear channel start adding me
Make Weird al wanna parody
A song that the hipsters hate
When they discuss it they always pontificate
And say it isn't as good-as it indicates
But when it come on they always participate
And all the critics just diss me and instigate,
While I'm Paris just chillin' like *this is great*
So if you think that your movie could handle it
Do me a favor: and get at my management

yeah

(CHORUS 4X)
Track Name: Losses (feat. Joell Ortiz and MURS, beat by Alex Minor)
LOSSES
(R. Jarbo, J. Ortiz, N. Carter, T. Estes, A. Minor)

(Ortiz)
We all took losses, workers to hood bosses
9 to 5ers drug dealers we all worship
Hood hoop stars could've went to the League
but they whole game went to the weed
litle girls trapped in the crib
on the strength of they seed
some older n*****
had her bent in the V
she was used to the Reeboks
but he got, them rims that keep moving
when the V stop,
so when the V stop, she stop, she got right
took flight
now her little daughter need socks
and her grandmother need rocks
cause she a victim of these street blocks
the hood is a wall
and it's not made of sheet rock
its made of project bricks
elevators full of project piss
incinerators is the project's snitch
thats where you find old WIC checks
and notices from housing
cause Miss Malcolm ain't paid her rent yet.

CHORUS
I can't go back
I've got to stay on track
let go to gain back
baby baby, you can't stop
(2x)

Verse Two (Mega Ran)

Im from a place called Illadel
where real killers dwell
dealers sell
keep the hook on lock
like Citadels
imagine a war zone, nobody wants to leave
younger G's stay busting shots
at the summer league
and shorty 23 no job with 5 kids
inviting all types of men up in her mom's crib
we aint convicts, just tryna survive this
my kids might've responded
like Trayvon did
try to explain it to my students
out in phoenix
they aint squeamish cause they seen it
and it's not hard to believe it.
took losses, when my cousin hit that pipe
I spit portrtaits: I'll never forget that night
and cats might think I left town
cause I couldn't make it
on the contrary
I left because I couldn't take it
the murderers and the rapist
corrupt police ad their fakeness
I pray that you find peace
before the day that you meet your maker

(CHORUS 2x)

Verse Three (MURS)

You know what's crazy
and I never took the time to trip?
I aint' seen a crackhead
since like '96
my lil homies sling pills to get that shiny sh*t
whether it's Nike kicks or designer whips
they sell to White girls wit Botox inside their lips
but when it come to red and blue
they on that grimy sh*t
I know a gang of bloods
and all kind of crips
that let shots fly like Hawkeye
when it's time to trip
but not as accurate cause accidents happen
a little girl struck by stray bullets
in her room napping
some rappers glorify, but only more will die
my grandma in Kingdom Hall
looking towards the sky
she looking for a why
I'm trying to show em how
you can come up from these streets
and still make it out
right now we need soldiers
we don't need bosses
we gotta take a stand
I'm sick of taking losses.
