about

Mega Ran’s surprise winter 2019 release “AGES” comes at an opportune time, as it places a bow on a breakthrough year personally and professionally. Released to celebrate a successful Kickstarter campaign that will bring his "Black Materia" album back in 2020, AGES covers parts of Ran’s awkward journey through youth to adulthood, and includes the remix to the standout single “HOME.” Tracks are produced by the late EOM, newcomers The Alumni and Mat Mania Podcast contributor G1. Despite a litany of producers, the tracks on AGES flow seamlessly, thanks to some beautifully chiptune programming notes that open and close each track.

Track Name: AGES (Intro)
At the end of my first album I said that I was quitting.
Thought I meant it at the time but I guess i really didn’t
Cause then I met Ohene, and continued the mission,
What you think is the ending is really the beginning
Im on 40th and walnut honing my craft
Hoping to grasp on whatever was holding me back
Overflowing with Passion but it’s the Focus we lacked
Combine the cultural reference with the Flow it’s a wrap
he can freestyle but let me hear him go on a track
I ain’t gotta send a text real ones Know when I’m back
Open the back sneak em in the show when it’s packed
Headlining but had more fun as the opening act
Had a come to Jesus moment when the numbers took a slide,
Switch the hustle to Patreon, focused on my tribe , Man
Its been a roller coaster 2019,
We bagged R. Kelly forgot about Weinstein
Had to cut a couple homies
that were disloyal and phony,
Flipped BTS and Got a stiff arm from Sony
All good, I knew what I was doing
The champs gotta get rocked once in a while to prove he’s human
Showed me that you can have all of the best planning
And still lack understanding like playing Death Stranding
Most underrated, nobody’s favorite
Its d thats that’s a strategy to keep me motivated
Of all places, you ain’t safe in your home base
You could get broken in on and shot in your own place
Or you can testify and they claim that you sold weight
So When I see the brights behind me I hope that they roll tape
Anyway this is for kids like me
Raised on Rap Snacks and 99 cent iced teas
With Kinda Funny and Budden up in they RSS Feed
Who just wanna play video games just be
Cats wearing cosplay to a con on public transit
Smiling through the stares who cares if they understand it
I save every fan email I get
In a folder called “motivation” and when I wanna quit
I read em aloud, Yall give me the courage I lack
So eventually I find a way to hurdle right back
They said we wouldn’t make it, said it was too dangerous,
I chose my own path like a Metroidvania
Glasgow to Vegas
From mixtapes to playlists,
I’m just tryna make it through the ages
Minimum wages to festival stages
I’m just tryna make it through the ages
