Random meets Mega Ran in this story inspired by the play "The Meeting," by Jeff Stetson

lyrics

..an old friend?

Okay, let him in.

R- let him in.

Verse One (Random)
Hello Mega Ran, I know it's a surprise,
It's been a little while, what a sight for sore eyes,
Before you hit the stage I just wanted to say congrats,
Cuz you've cashed in on your passion and I'm really proud of that -
Newspapers websites adorn you with awards
And I can hardly keep up man you're always on a tour
You know, it's really awesome man, how everybody loves you
And to think you almost quit, now look what it's come to,
While most indie rappers struggle, you make it look so simple,
Dope rhymes indeed but 8 bit instrumentals were the kicker
Remember when we polly'd it on the block
And you said you'd never change, no matter how awesome it got
Well I couldn't help but notice you don't talk about those moments
If I didn't know any better I'd think you had disowned it
I was your biggest proponent, but you probably think I'm jealous,
Cause you're too busy being a star to kick it with the fellas,
You should be out in Ferguson speaking against injustice,
But it seems you got better things to do than to discuss it,
I wouldn't be a true friend if I didn't point it out.
Used to chalk it up to youth but I'm just disappointed now.
You said you'd come back for me, that musta been a lie,
So I came to holler at you and give a final goodbye
Nothing personal bro, I still consider you a friend
But we're way too different, so you'll never see me again


Chorus (Edy Blu)
No one but me can see my face,
In the shadows to the light, my saving grace
No one but me can see my face
Out the shadows to the light my saving grace

Verse 2
(Mega Ran)

Listen, as you said it's been a while since we last chatted
And in that period Id say whole lot has happened
I've been across seas, gained a little recognition
I wish we could roll together but you just would never listen
You were about the spitting and trying to make a difference
And I was too, but how was I to make a living
I watched you spend 11 months making the first record
Rehearsing and perfecting it hoping to be respected
but ultimately neglected press outlets, you were starting to doubt it,
I recovered the fumble and did something about it
8 years later I thought the remixes would move you
But I was truly saddened they didn't meet your approval,
And I apologize for not standing on social issues and not blowing the whistle on all these corrupt officials
But I'm the escape, my music can help them get through
And if you going for good then Im seriously gonna miss you
But you don't understand the pressure and the demands,
It was easy as Random it's hard as Mega Ran,
And what's the joy in being the broke dude who kept it real,
Can't change the community when you can't pay your bills
But I promise to make sure they see a piece of you
Cause you're the inspiration in every single piece I do
But if this isn't pleasing you to see me live my dreams,
Then maybe we weren't quite as close as it used to seem
nah mean?

Chorus

No one but me can see my face,
In the shadows to the light, my saving grace
No one but me can see my face
Out the shadows to the light my saving grace

(adlibs out)
